At the moment, when it comes to PSC I seem to be one of the luckier ones. I am ‘symptom free’ in the sense that I have no mind-numbing itching and I am not particularly yellow.
However, one thing I do seem to have is tiredness.
I’ve had to think very hard about posting this here. Basically, I wanted to make sure that I wasn’t just making this up, or that the tiredness wasn’t related to something else.
I have had it since about September:
- Firstly I put it down to jet-lag, as in September I both traveled to and came back from the US.
- Then I put it down to a cold.
- Then to not having been to the gym for a while.
- Then to not having enough vitamins.
- Then to having my seasonal flu jab followed by my swine flu jab.
Now, I am out of options and it seems to be getting worse.
I find getting up in the mornings even harder than I did when I was a teenager. By midday I am so tired my eyes sting every time I blink.
And what’s worse, sugar drinks – such as my beloved Dr Pepper – only take the edge off, they don’t wake me up fully.
To be honest, I am not 100% such as to the reason of this post. There is no amusing anecdote to get you smiling; I don’t even have a cheap dirty joke to get a quick laugh.
I guess this is more about just ordering my thoughts. A way of analysing what has been rumbling around in my head for a while.
Though, of course, I am open to suggestions on how I can improve my wakefulness.
