It’s from hell, honest…

The fatigue from hell, never felt it so over whelming as I did after the beating on Japan…

When we made the move to Arkansas an I had to drive our vehicle all the way from Washington state… I thought, I’ll never make it, with out falling asleep at the wheel…

Surprised myself on that move… and I thought, okay, it’s finally going away, this fatigue thing that acts like narcolepsy… thankfully, it was never found to be that… nope…

So after all the MRI’s & MRA and all the exams and tests… why does the fatigue thing rear it’s ugly head and disappear???

I’m starting to think it’s hormone related…

When the Air Force took my organs, that were healthy… I was put on hormone replacement therapy at 25 years old… by the time 2004 rolled around after being on hormones since 1979….. I was done… only one problem…

I was on another hormone drug for my thyroid…

Well I quit that drug, Jan 2019…. almost 2 years now…

Now the theory….

I didn’t have a period or menstrual cycle, per my military records, until I was 16 1/2 years old… and they took my organs by the time I was 24 in the first operation… I had natural hormones actively for a very short time…

So they give you drugs to replace those hormones…

I think what is happening… the body is getting into a rhythm, like I wrote a few months back… an when the cycle per say hits… the fatigue that I live with, is intensified by the body doing a normal cycling… make sense yet, cause I’m about to lose myself…

The chronic fatigue is a by product of the stroke… that showed up on the MRI, so fatigue is part of stroke, for life… just goes with the stroke… but it’s levels can vary and what I deal with… when it hits… knocks me out like narcolepsy would… but with it, my fatigue, it warns me… so driving heavy machinery, not an issue…

But it is frustrating, because, even though I’m seeing a neurologist… he is just a guide as I find my way back from so many years of memory loss…

An I thought this was all getting just a little bit boring…

That’s what I get for thinking….
