A good explanation of fatigue
« on: March 19, 2010, 06:35:19 PM »

I found this in an old e-mail from a very dear friend.  Just thought I would pass it on.  Sure hits the nail on the head.

"It is a full-body exhaustion that makes you feel as if you have no bones, that if you didn't have skin wrapped around your body, you would melt down into nothingness like the Wicked Witch of the West. Or that you are a melting candle, except a candle has a wick and there is nothing in your body that feels that as solid. On the other hand, your bones can feel so heavy that lifting your arms to wash you hair in the shower is chore akin to a weightlifter hefting a 200 pound barbell. His task is easier, though, because as soon as he puts the barbell down, he's through. But after you've soaped your hair, you have to rinse it. That means those bone-weary, heavy arms must be raised again and after the shower, those "barbells" must be toted around all day long for they cannot be discarded like the weight-lifter' toys."
