Chronic Pain Comes with Fatigue?

This is SPOT ON! I have horrific fatigue, which I have always had a tendency to blame on Endometriosis but I am starting to realize that chronic pain in general can cause it. I have pushed myself beyond the reasonable limits of my chronic illness and pain for a very long time. I have slowly been learning to adapt and adjust but I can feel the effects of over-doing it for so long and I seem to be going downhill quickly. Stress worsens both the chronic pain and fatigue so much that I have been nearly incapacitated as of late. My anxiety and depression are out of control and I feel like I am on the verge of or possibly in the early stages of a nervous breakdown. Thank you for this post. I believe that our health depends on recognizing the fatigue that comes with chronic pain and accepting whatever adjustments are necessary to allow for adequate rest. Rest certainly won’t cure the chronic fatigue but it may help to avoid doing additional damage to our already compromised bodies and minds. 💜

Chronic Pain Comes with Fatigue? Chronic pain comes with fatigue? You bet it does.

And because of this, I am a completely different person now. Being in constant pain is difficult yes, but no one mentions the extreme fatigue that comes along with it. I can no longer do the things I used to. I used to work full time, keep the house clean, run errands, have a social life, get things done – do things a normal person would do with ease, but I am different now. Along with the pain, fatigue consumes my whole being and it’s very difficult to say the least.

SOMEBODY

So you dropped me

Held me by my feet and let me go

I fell between the seat, but nothing broke

I’ve yet to feel that brilliant afterglow

The one I knew of years ago

Now I’m twisted

Twisted from the waist and spun around

Promised only sky but given ground

Realized the makeup is for a clown

The clown I knew of months ago

[Chorus]

I only wanted to be somebody

So fucking bad, I came unglued

I only wanted to be somebody

So here we are now, face to face

And I’m fucking you

So you caught me!

Wishing I were better than the rest

You hit me and left bruises on my chest

And when I wouldn’t cheat

I spit upon your test

The test I tore up weeks ago

And now my fist is

My fist is for your face to cock the jaw

When I begin to rise, you start to fall

Now you know how it feels to drop the ball

The ball I threw back days ago

[Chorus]

So I’ll just stand right here for now

I should have won, but how?

I break a smart ass grin

Who let the loser win?

Let’s break a smart ass grin

Let’s let the losers win!
