4.00 pm

hi

i’ve noticed that almost every day at around 4 pm i get this overwhelming feeling of weakness.

i’ve tried eating a better lunch but it doesnt make any difference.

all i want to do is curl up with a cuppa and my kindle.

so that’s what i’m going to do!

the weak feeling starts in my hands but pretty quickly spreads to all over.

ah well, onwards and upwards - a phrase that is wearing very thin.

I’ve got in the habit of every afternoon at about 3ish I go and lay on the bed with my kindle and stay there till about 5ish. That way I can stave off the fatigue enough to help make dinner, eat it and watch a bit of TV (or continue with the kindle if it’s a good book) till bed time. Works for me.

I have to fight fatigue at this time of the day too, regardless of what time I’ve got up or how well I’ve slept. I revive later, but it’s always touch and go during the afternoon.

It wears off for you, Carole?

thank you for the replies

i’m afraid it doesnt seem to wear off at the moment.

i’ve got an appointment to see my ms nurse next week so i’ll add it to my ever-growing list!

i’m getting annoyed with myself now - snap out of it woman!!
