I’m 36 and I have Psoriatic Arthritis. I got my diagnosis just over two years ago. I’m on methotrexate and biologic injections. I just wondered if anyone else really suffers with fatigue?
I have two young children, work part time and like everyone else - have an incredibly busy life. But the fatigue is so much more than standard tiredness. Some days I’m so clumsy and can’t think straight even with the simplest of tasks and I can feel so overwhelmed with tiredness I could cry because I just need to sit down.
For the most part I can just grind through and get on with what I need to, but some days/weeks are just so hard. My husband is a very active on the go person who never sits and rests, so that keeps me going to be similar…. But sometimes it’s just too much and I just need a break.
Does anyone else feel like this? I can feel quite alone with it sometimes and worry people think I’m being lazy or have a bit of a lacklustre attitude and it’s really not the case… I’m just so fatigued!
Would love to hear other peoples coping mechanisms with this.
