As we near the end of September, I know that I probably only have a couple more weeks left to get anything productive done. Typically from October through March I notice a definite increase in my fatigue and pain, thanks to FM and ME/CFS.
This weekend was actually the start of my decline. On Saturday and Sunday I wasn’t able to function and accomplished very little. I mostly slept on the couch and watched television when my mind would allow me to even do that little task. I also notice that the cognitive impairments start to increase with something as simple as watching television.
I also find that I have to take more pain medication and I have to take the medicationat closer intervals. Every four hours becomes every two hours.
Do you get worse this time of year? Do you hate the thought of the holidays approaching because you can’t function as well? Let me know your thoughts!
