And working... forget it.
I couldn't. I'd sit in the office brain-dead, just trying to salvage any energy to use for a couple minutes of work before I passed out.
It got to the point where I had to cash in on a week's vacation and I now have a week off where I'll hopefully recover. My regular days off between work just wasn't enough time to get back to 100% with the accumulated stress. Like I was saying last time, I was way past my low threshold.
Now finding myself with free time, I'm going to try get back to blogging at least once per day in one of my blogs. Without that creative outlet it becomes easy to feel like a slob, and like something is really wrong with me. It's important to try and feel as normal as possible.
I've also started considering other aspects to my fatigue problem, mainly dietary. I'll make it clear, I've been ignoring fruits and vegetables unless I'm eating somewhere else that's serving them. It's not that it's on purpose, but go visit the blog of anyone suffering from chronic fatigue and see how easy they find it to cook... Not very.
Making a bowl of ramen is usually as elaborate as it gets, for me anyway. On a good day, thaw a fish filet and throw it in the oven and hope I don't pass out while waiting for it.
So... After hearing Towelliee talk about how much of an impact it's had on his life while watching his Twitch TV livestream, I decided to give juicing a shot (using a juicer... not steroids!). While browsing for juicers on Amazon, my wife kindly reminded me that we have a Magic Bullet we were gifted when we moved in together and it has a juicer function. Naturally, the ease of drinking my food fits right into my absolutely-no-energy repertoire.
And... It's fantastic. I love it. I'm only on my second day juicing and I'm feeling more alert and awake. Then again... it is my day off. I'll be tracking how I feel once I return to work, but the way I see it consuming fruits and veggies in any form can't possibly make me feel any worse than I was.
