Raised in a monstrous household Satan himself would condone, I have locked up almost my entire childhood in amnesia. I have tried to write out what I can remember and I have yet to fill three pages on my laptop of 8 by 11 page with Ariel size 11 font. My mother and two older sisters did their best to suffocate me n their putrid toxic waste, literally almost crippling me for life.
The last time I woke up feeling refreshed was the night I went to sleep at 10:30 PM and woke up refreshed and ready to go at 6:30 AM. I felt great and cannot remember a single time after that when I got such a good night of sleep again. That was in early 1990s.
Diagnosed with chronic fatigue in early 2000s. I can tell you from firsthand experience that it sucks. I would not wish on anyone this type of crippling fatigue. Awarded SSD not long after I was diagnosed, every time I went to the doctor, I got more bad news. I stopped going because I could not manage what I knew about and tried to manage.
I was overwhelmed, but I did not know I was overwhelmed because that was what I knew. I did not know what it was like to be managing my life smoothly. I was always stressed out and worried about money and my job and everything. I still am, but on occasion I feel better because now I have hope. Every day, my life is a little better.
