    This is kind of a new diagnoses for me. The pain I'm managing with the help of medication but I'm so tired all the time. I work full time as a Foster care case worker but it's starting to get hard with the fatigue.

    Peace32 Hi I wrote about the same thing last night under a post I called not enough spoons.

    It just seems like this is life to me too--- I live half a day the rest of it I rest.

    I don't think any of us have ever figured out exactly what works to get rid of fatigue rest helps a little ---to get some energy the next day but it goes again.

    Exercise--very gentle and not much of it-- in short bursts throughout the day-seems to me to be the best for strength and that is good--- helps me walk better etc.. but it doesn't give lasting relief from fatigue either---although you get some.

    So I"m not being helpful I guess.. but commiserating with you.

    I try to comfort myself in this by believing that if there is something God wants me to have strength enough to do---He will answer my prayers and make a way.
