glimmer Posted September 17, 2004 Report Share Posted September 17, 2004 Hi. I'm still quite new and posted a ways back complaining of having to lay down so much. I received some wonderful advice and empathy and sympathy from several of you and I am still most grateful. Anyway I am still in this lengthy relapse period but was doing better in that I could go out and make brief (and I mean brief) trips/ errands. But then a week++ ago I went to someone's house and hung out for to long and talked too long and got overly drained. I behaved in a slipshod fashion and overestimated my capacity to hang out. Or maybe I was just enjoying myself too much for the first time in a long time ago and I didn't want to go home to that bed. Next thing I went right into a huge crash and I feel worse now than when I first posted here complaining of being so drained. I could use a magic bullet but I don't know of one. I'm afraid of being stuck way far back into a deeper relapse for a long while.My question is why would such an outing where I was barely doing anything but hanging out on a couch and talking for apparently too long a period of time send me reeling backwards so far? It was my fault. I slipped up by staying out to long and then now I am paying what seems a larger price than I should be paying. Does anybody know why this happens? These crashes? Are there any websites that explain in simple terms the mechanics of crashing? Once I crash big time I seem to stay crashed for a long time. I'm mad at myself for not listening to my body. Because now I can't go on errands which took so long to build up to be able to do. And I feel really lousy and fatigued and totally brain fogged beyond belief. Do any of you know of any remedies to help boost those of us who crash? One huge thing I'd like to know is: has the medical profession been able to explain this phenomenon?? Why are some of us so fragile? So vulnerable to crashes? What are the mechanics of why we fall so far and then stay there? I would appreciate any information at all about this subject.Thank you,Glimmer Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
