It’s not just you. I’m the same. Just no energy in my tank

@rmdaniels , it’s all down to our brains having to work overtime trying to process neural messages that have been corrupted by MS damage.

Our brains work twice as hard as a normal person just to exist.

Guess for me that poor brain has to work triple time since I’m blonde. Dave??? What’s your MO? 🤣🤣🤣

A modus operandi (often shortened to M.O.) is someone’s habits of working, particularly in the context of business or criminal investigations, but also more generally. It is a Latin phrase, approximately translated as mode of operating.[1]

…in other words, I’m blonde, so my brain has extra problems…what’s your excuse???

Seriously, that’s so true for me. Just doing anything seems to take a lot more effort than it used to.

I would talk to your neurologist maybe B12 and other vitamins will help. Are you on any kind of pain medication and or sleeping medication? They can and will effect your energy levels.

Thanks for the reply! B12 is a great idea! I used to get shots but it’s been a long time ago. I remember they did help when I was taking them. I don’t take pain or sleep meds, but do take a muscle relaxer at night sometimes.

Anytime. My neurologist has me on B12.

I also have trouble sleeping, I drink sedatives at night
(what the psychologist wrote out) and 5 HTP tablets . My doctor refuses to give me a prescription for sleeping pills.

Not sleeping would be 100 times worse than sleeping too much I think. I hope you can find something to help!

@supermum1983
You have a lot on your plate too! Do you get to relax on the weekend? I don’t know how you do it! My kids are grown & on their own now.
