    I deal with fatigue quite often

    I’d say my fatigue and inhibited energy levels cause the stress and mental difficulty, so I wasn’t sure which one to choose. Great poll though ❤️

    I think "stress and mental difficulty" could've been broken down quite a lot, but it might've taken a licensed therapist to do so.

    Physical pain is so draining, medication is hard to get.

    More then likely your inflammation markers are high. Fatigue is the number one symptom of this.

      I didn’t think about that. Yeah that’s affecting me right now a lot.

    There is no part of my life at all that my mental health hasn’t affected, from my ability to hold down a job to my relationships with my wife and others.

    For me, my entire way of thinking has changed, so far as my handwriting has become unrecognizable (from the before times). So having to learn how to learn again has really sucked.

    Idk I mean the stress and the pain feed each other... Same as the nausea and migraines with the stress. So it's all a vicious unending circle.

    Basically it affects everything, my ability to function is in the gutter.

    Work I do well enough on the others to get through, but not being able to hold a job at 23 is the most humiliating thing because disability won't come through, everyone around me thinks I'm a lazy kid

    Employment. I had to quit my first job because the stress made my tics so bad I couldn't do my job anymore. I haven't gotten another job since because I've been so scared it will happen again.

    Employment. Employers aren't understanding. They seem to think it's a "rash with some itching" In ALL of my interviews I disclosed that I have multiple psoriatic diseases and that there would be some dr appointments, creams, etc. Two weeks in is the longest they last. People complain about the mess (usually other employees 🙄) Or that my constant scratching "grossed tem out". Employers never stand up and end up firing the emplyee with the condition, because they are "the person causing the disturbance.

    My dad doesn’t care about my negative feelings 😥 I have autism and bipolar and ocd scrupulosity and he says those are just excuses 😥

    This is a hard choice because it’s honestly all of the above to some extent, but I said disabilities. I can’t drive for six months if I have a seizure. Thankfully my seizures are few and far between, but when they do happen, it’s like my life goes on hold for six months. It really sucks when I’m seizure free for six months, I start driving again, and then I have a seizure again. 😭

    I decided to go back on medication for my ADHD. At first it seemed to help a lot but now I’m not sure if it’s really helping. I may try to get off after this bottle🤦🏽 I think just really need therapy and some self healing. I picked up reading again and I think this may help a little. I know there are a lot of other natural things that can as well, but does anyone have any pointers?
