I am experiencing extreme fatigue and it's so hard for me because I never took a break in life at all. It has been a challenge but I have tried the following. I got a calming CD to listen to an hour before bedtime. I will also turn it on in the middle of the night if I wake up. I also have a white noise machine that seems to help me fall into a deeper sleep.
I have learned not to fight the fatigue but embrace it. When I get home from work, if I feel tired, I put my PJ's on and veg on the couch. If I'm really tired, I'll even take a nap. I do try to go to bed every night at 9 and wake up at 6 (I am still working). On the weekends I don't set the alarm and whatever time I wake up, that's when I start my day.
I have given up on a clean apartment. It's neat but not clean. I also have started having my friends do my laundry. Doing chores seems to sap up any energy I have at all. Microwave meals have become my friend, along with plastic silverware so there is no clean up. Anything I can do to avoid having to do more, I have tried.
Don't be afraid to ask for help and take the help. The journey is like a marathon, not a sprint. You will need different things during different parts of your journey. Don't be afraid to ask for help. It helps your friends feel good too about helping you out.
