Something to do with being in transition.

When you are in transition, you are switched on. If you have CFS, being switched on is draining.

~~~

My love of company is always counterbalanced by my desire not to overdo things, and my calculations of how ill I am making myself and how long I will need to recover when I am alone again. Regardless of the company.

But I have realised that the leaving process is a particularly draining element of time with other people. When it begins, I feel very heavy and listless, even grumpy, as though the payback is starting. I do prefer that bit to be over quickly.

Bloke popped over last night. Wednesday is his day off, but he had said he would leave early as he had things to do. However, unlike a previous love interest, Bloke likes hanging around with me... and is expert at making himself welcome.

But when it did finally become time to go - when he woke up from a nap, realised he'd be doing well if he caught his regular train home and began to gather his wits and his things, while I started to ponder the rest of my day - fog started to descend.

This fog wasn't bought on the length of his stay. He could have stayed another night (and he did mutter something about how it would have been prudent to pack spare clothes so he could have had that option). The fog definitely came on at the leaving point (which fortunately was brief) and it's now starting to lift.
