I do. Fatigue is a constant for me. Unfortunately, my solution will not work for most people. First, I’ve given up on having friends, because friends expect you to socialize on the weekend, and social stuff is too exhausting. Secondly, I force myself to get up and move. MY cat helps with that because he doesn’t let me sleep too late. If I let myself give in to the fatigue, I would never move from the sofa — and that tends to lead to depression. So I just force myself to get moving — and once I’m up and outside, I find that my energy level picks up a bit. I’ll start a hike and hate myself for it for the first half mile, but then I’m reluctant to stop.
