I have no idea why, but I am so tired lately. Despite decent sleeps, and not getting up too early, I feel as weary as an old man can be. Everything requires an enormous effort, like moving in increased gravity. A good walk of two hours with Ollie leaves me wrecked, and I have little enthusiasm for domestic chores, though I still manage to do them.
I feel like someone else is inhabiting my body. Someone very tired. I don’t recognise this person at all, as it definitely doesn’t feel like me. Small tasks take an age, and undue effort to complete. Things done without thinking, only a few months ago, become as challenging as reaching Everest Base Camp. I wish I had some idea what is going on. On the surface, I feel the same, but I yearn for rest, become irritated with noise, and seek solitude and sleep.
I am only 63 years old, and recently felt on top of the world. I just don’t get it. Does anyone else experience this fatigue, and feeling of malaise? I hope that it’s just not me. That would be worrying.
