Im soooo exhausted lately. I can't barely thing, and forget everything!!!! Im glad my job is not physically challenging although its emotionally challenging. I find my self not being able to get up in the morning especially because I'm sleep deprived. I know if posted this before, I just want to tell someone that I'm toying with the idea of someday not having to come to work, and sleep all day. If and when I stop working its going to be very tight for us financially, were a family of five. My husbands line of work is not very stable, so he often finds himself out of job, which makes me financially responsible for our household. Its very stressfull knowing that I'm sick and want to stop working and not being able to. Im already out of sick time, and wont get anymore sick days until next july! I don't know what I'm going to do, I see 7 different specialist and none have evening hours I like them all and dont want to replace any of them.
as always thanks for letting me vent guys, I dont want to tell my husband how I really feel as I don't want him to feel any less for not being able to be our soul supporter : (

I am sorry you are having such a hard time. Your doctor should be able to give you some medicine that will make you sleep better at night which will allow you to be more awake during the day. Now that doesn't fix the extreme fatigue that this disease gives us but it does help with the loss of sleep and gets the sleep/wake cycle a bit better.

Not working is difficult. Financially it is very hard until the disability kicks in (and not easy even then) but sometimes it is all that you can do. Never forget that we are here for you whenever you need us

Youre always so sweet Tgal, thanks! Im having a sleep study done tomorrow to see if they can figure out what my issue is and if medication will help. Im soooo scared to use sleeping pills, but if I have to do it I have no choice.

I don't if this helps but I have taken Lunesta for probably two years now and although I still find myself tired each morning, I am at least sleeping. I have not had any side effects from the medicine at all.
