Fatigue (CMT Awareness Month 2015 - DAY 16)

As we enter the second half of International CMT Awareness Month, it seems an appropriate time to talk more about fatigue!

According to, fatigue is defined as "The lack of energy and motivation (both physical and mental). This is different to drowsiness, a term that describes the need to sleep."
Fatigue is the biggest thing I struggle with each and every day.

Even walking to the fridge to pour a drink = need to sit down to recover for at least 20 minutes before bring able to do anything else. The same goes for every other daily tasks.
Every little thing is just exhausting both physically AND mentally!
