Friends: Freddy the Dalmatian and his best mate Harley.
The good Dr Crippen has blogged previously about a condition that’s enough to make GPs switch off: TATT (tired all the time)
This is a heartsink symptom. If you are feeling TATT, find some different words or the doctor’s eyes will glaze over.
Well I’m feeling TATT at the moment, and have been since Christmas. It’s really annoying. I have no other symptoms, I just feeling knackered – constantly. I’ve been sleeping 12 to 17 hours a day (more than Inky the cat) and wake up feeling more exhausted than when I went to bed. It’s as if my body is trying to catch up with all the sleep deprivation I’ve experienced over the last few years.
I thought about dropping round to see my GP but I’ve no idea what to tell him. I’ve checked all my own vitals; even going so far as to see if I had a UTI. Of course not, there’s nothing wrong. I don’t have a cold or any aches and pains though there has been a low grade headache, but that’s nothing new with me. My appetite’s fine and I still find myself dipping into that tin of choccys! So I’ve taken a few days off work. Hopefully I’ll either wake up raring to go or some other symptom(s) will appear that might suggest I have something ‘going on’.
Meantime I’m going to curl up on the settee with a good book.
