do you ever get frustrated when medical staff ask you if you lost interest in things you used to enjoy? my problem is not that I lost interest, I've lost the ability to do them!

      My old dr understood best and would try keeping me focused. It's a terrible cycle

      I answered those questions truthfully and was diagnosed with depression. They know my medical history they are the source of my diagnosis. I broke it down and tried to explain that mentally I haven't lost interest but physically my body just isnt able. And when I push myself I pay for it for days. It's a never ending cycle.

      My kids are teasing me bc the most comfortable position for me is sitting on my bed cross legged and laying my upper half across my lower half. Told me I have had my nickname so long I'm even starting to look like a turtle 🐢

      On most days I can barely function. On days like today, my kids know what I mean that I’m a turtle, ie low energy day.

      I had gone out for an echo of my heart. That night I was asleep by 5, would have been earlier but diabetic so had to eat. My kids start waking me up around 10 if I had a bad night. But even with them bugging me to get up I have been sleeping later and later. I feel like I'm sleeping or fighting sleep all the time. I take vitamins to help with the lack of sun..

      The blame game has always irritated me and the"I wish we had a cure all pill we could just hand out to everyone".. I agree with you.. the better drs seem to be disappearing... Did you know that the newer drs are taught not to give out pain meds.

      I can completely relate I’ve been getting tired earlier and earlier now my bedtime is 730. I get ready for bed around 5, This morning I slept until 11 am . Wow a mile in 15 minutes ? I’d say ant progress towards walking would be great as long as youre trying . Some doctors don’t fully understand that . And are kind of dismissive or like to play like a blame game some are actually compassionate and understand you .

      Exactly. I'm barely able to walk without help but Dr wants me walking a mile in 15 minutes or less. I always loved to hike and walk but not run. Even crafts I can do sitting are a challenge now.. for the past couple of weeks I have had no energy and aren't sleeping well. Trying to doing a mystery game with my kids and I'm having a hard time staying focused and getting sleepy, it's only 5pm

      Yes Completely currently going threw physchosis , I’m barley able to do anything. Even just going for a walk is a hassle . I Use to love walking , and doing all the stuff I used to but now it’s like I don’t even have the energy to do so.
