Three days after my gardening escapades, the post-exertional crash has hit. l realised when my legs couldn’t cope with the stairs and l started to have word-finding difficulties that I’d have to go home from work.
I’m writing about this to illustrate two points. Firstly, learning to manage chronic fatigue is hard and there will be setbacks. Secondly, as a doctor, I’m terrible at taking my own advice.
Feeling a bit overheated now, so off to recover.
The podcast will be more fun than this, don’t worry…
