Crash Day.

Just popped in to go ergh.

Instead of curling up for some much needed introvert time I have been both talking and pootling about. Yesterday I even tackled a flight of stairs. This was grand until sometime this morning when the dreams morphed into those ones where I'm too exhausted to move or become properly conscious, everything is too confusing to explain to people and gravity is way too strong. The bit where I was trying to scale a wall was freaking epic as well.


I don't set much store by dreams and usually only respond to them according to whether I like them or not. I have one genre of dream that pops up regularly and annoys me because it's so bloody boring(the brainfog+existential angst collection), but I have many others that range from action/adventure to hilarious. Of course, the fact that high pumpin' action and being chased by monsters/angry mobs/aliens is now what I call a good dream should tell people something about how boring life is with CFS. I would rather be chased by monsters thanks.

But the full-on fatigue dream, like I had this morning, is followed by a bad day and is a sign that my body is failing even as I sleep.

I have that fatigue dream too and I hate it, I just feel so so weak. And that boring school dream is boring.

God yes! And that boring school dream is the one I described as brainfog+existential angst: wandering the corridors lost, and staring at my diary but I can't read it...too sick to manage. And then I start wondering what the hell I'm doing there in my 40s, and why I'm getting worse marks now than I got back then.

The only good thing about that is that since I've started painting, I'm starting to have parts of those dreams where I'm actually talking to my art teacher and getting a small amount done. Which is pretty awesome when you think about it.

I am sick to death of that dream. Mine is pretty much the same.

How awesome about the changes in that dream from you doing art! Maybe I should do something like that. I get the feeling I'm starting to crash again from the stupid treatment again though.

I don't have fatigue dreams as much as I have pain dreams. I have reoccurring dreams about losing limbs and being in excruciating pain. Or I have boring dreams of shopping or running errands. I welcome the chased by monsters dreams!

I'm just happy I never remember my dreams. When I wake up exhausted I know they were bad but no details, please.
