Endless Fatigue

…and the holidays loometh

Abstract

In the aftermath of the stroke, my greatest challenge seems to be this endless quantity of fatigue. It can be overpowering at times. Fatigue resulting from a stroke is recognized as a different species from normal fatigue. It’s not just the physical sort you feel after, say, a hard mountain climb, nor the mental weariness you might feel after a long day at work. Post-stroke fatigue is more like a double whammy, hitting you broadside both mentally and physically to produce a bone-tiredness that chases you at every turn and is impossible to escape from, except in brief intervals.
