Please help me find an answer to my debilitating fatigueHello, I am a single mother, 38, and try so hard to just get the things done that need to be done, but am failing and need help. I have been to dr, many tests, you guessed it, no allopathic issues.
I can't keep up with housework, get basic done, most days. I feel like I am robbing my 4 year old of a parent(no father, or close family, friends to help)I guess I have isolated myself, due to neccessity, not choice really.
When I was pregnant, barely a few months, my husband started to abuse me, and I went to a shelter(obviously this is the short version) until less than a month before I gave birth. It was an extremely stressful time. As well as after, with little help.
My fatigue, I get so tired I cant walk, I hold onto a shopping cart if I need to shop. I try to take my daughter for walks, but they need to be short, a bra, or anything around my neck makes me feel like bricks are tied to my shoulders/blades neck/upper back.
As I breastfed I gained weight, I tried to workout to lose weight and I gained weight. As well as it draining me, I do try to do gentle yoga for liver/kidneys a few days of the week.
I have a higher protein diet,if I eat bad carbs, I become almost narcoleptic, have almost fallen asleep driving, try to just eat organic as well, but as I cannot work(who would hire me?)this is very hard.
Hot days/nights, seem to make my weariness worse, as well as extreme cold/grey, which tends to put me in a depressive state.
I suppose I feel better/best when I am laying down usually after dinner, as I seem to need to be in bed by 7, if I am not I get irritated, and am just exhausted and cannot do anything.
I think my sleep seems to be fine, I sleep 71/2 to 8 hrs. I had a sleep test and was told I have a slight sleep apnea, but was wondering since they charge so much for the machine if I really did?Guess you can say I have a suspicious attitude towards things.
I seem to be forgetful lately, fairly new thing.
Sensitive to heat, criticisim, perceived animosity of people.
10 years ago had my mercury amalgams removed before I knew there were procedures to be safer. Since have had receeding gums, and tooth indentation/loss at gumline. Gradually getting worse. Quit smoking 5 years ago.
itchy eye, vision seemed to deteriorate fast, ie within a month needed glasses to drive approx a year ago, feel like it is hard to focus, not just vision but mind as well
dry patches on scalp, freckles used to be on face and shoulders, last few years all over where skin is exposed to sun. sparse eyelashes, fast long growing nose hairs.
Thinning hair, not extreme but noticable. hump of neck. History of depression(circumstantial, lots of trauma in past)
Allergic to fish since a baby, near fatal experience. Allergic to cats/smoking/chemical(perfume, cleaners) try to stay natural with cleaners, laundry soap etc.Extreme aversion to olives, pickles, liver, seafood.
I hope I covered most things.
I am desparate for help, not only for myself but to give my little one a full life.
THank you for your time
As well I am terrified I will never feel well enough to find a relationship, I do not want to be alone for the rest of my life, how could I ever meet or even date someone, I barely have the energy to go food shopping.
