Well, what's happening this week is odd. Sinse my really awful few days last weekend, I've felt generally good, ---- in fact I've got my parents staying at the moment, and they've both commented on how much better i seem.

the weerd thing is though, how tired I've been all week. not exhausted, not dropping, just a mild warm fuzzy feeling and the sense that I have to occasionally just curl up and exist for a while, ---- heck I've even slept moderately properly.

I'll be fine, feel well for a while, and then just get to a point where I want to go and ease off and slee. take last night. My parents turned up to stay. I spent a fairly nice evening, but went to bed at half past nine, ---- even though I'd woken at eight the previous morning.

i've spent a pretty good day, going round a local museum with my dad, but it's half past five in the afternoon and I'm already feeling a bit out.

is this just because I'm getting used to feeling more and it's taking more energy?

This isn't a problem, ---- I'd much rather feel good for short periods and then tired, rather than feel good for short periods and then bloody awful, I'm just slightly confused about what's happening, and I don't like the feeling of being out of control this gives.

Has anyone else experienced this? Can someone give me a clue to what's going on?

Luke,

Part of this may be depression. That's a condition that hits many survivors, and one symptom of it is profound weariness. That is, everything seems to be an effort and even though you may feel good, you just feel so tired.

That's just an idea that came to me, but clearly this is something to raise in therapy. If there's a pattern to this then it's probably something that can be resolved by working with your T.

Much love,
Larry
