ive been through stress and sought therapy over 2 and a 1/2 years ago. i managed to get through the stress and mood swings with the drs. help. now im just on sleeping pills. i cant get to sleep but as soon as the sun rises i cant move and just curl up and sleep the day away. the only active hours i have are at about 10/11pm. if i do something active during the day even with enough sleep and some energy i feel like im paralysled for the next few days and its impossible to do anything - washing, shaving, cooking, just going downstairs for a snack is beyond me. before my stress and problems i was very active and played kendo twice a week and climbed mountains and gardened and worked as a teacher and fitted as much life into the hours i could and i still had energy to spare. lately - well for 2 years ive just slept and cant seem to get motivated for anything. oh ive a happy life and dont feel depressed just shocked at the inabilities i have right now. is this M.E ? or just a sickness? oh and because of this pointless existence its put a burden on the family and along with constant suicidal thoughts and feelings it doesnt help to make the day a good day to go and do anything.
