One type of fatigue I did not mention was one the other author described as sudden fatigue which she also called the crumple and fold fatigue, but I admit that the whole concept seemed foreign to me.
Until yesterday when it hit me.
Out! Of! The! Blue!
Perhaps I attempted to do a little too much because it felt like a somewhat "good" day. . . perhaps it was a mistake to take my sun-sensitive body in my new long-sleeve rash guard shirt into my friend's pool. . . or perhaps it was the fact that I actually attempted to prepare dinner for my family. . .
But whatever the case, I suddenly became as limp as the noodles in the pot - afterwhich I fastened my butt to the couch in total wipeout mode. . . waiting for the clock to strike eight so I could safely put myself to bed.
Now I've been to quite a few "ologists" since the onset of my symptoms. . . rheumatologist. . .hematologist. . .pulmonologist. . . dermatologist. . . .ophthalmologist. . .gastroenterologist. . .
But I have a question for you: Do they make a crumpleologist??? Because if so, please schedule an appointment!
