I'll be honest with you. I feel like a little bitch for posting this after a long time absence. For those of you who remember me, I'm now an adult. I live on my own, I pay my own bills, and I go to school at UW-Green Bay. Since moving out my diet has improved greatly. I now get to eat a lot more meat, and more veggies. I weigh about 218 with between 15-20%bodyfatat 5'8". This isnt about that though. Two years ago I came down with Mono. I went from 200+ down to under 150 because immediately after mono I had a surgery. Unfortunately I still have the virus in my blood, but the nurse practitioner doesnt think that is causing my problem. I occasionally get spleen pain but she could not feel any swelling. I'll be getting an ultrasound of the area sooner than later. Normally I jump out of bed and proceed to kick ass all day, working a fairly phyiscal job 25-40 hours a week, and lifting 3-4 times a week, and school. however for the past month and a half I'm so groggy when I wake up that I need to hold myself up to prevent myself from falling over for the first 10-15 minutes upon waking.
I’m tired and dizzy all day, and no matter how much I sleep I always have large black bags under my eyes. This has affected my lifting andmy job performance. Those two things are my absolute priorities.
Has anyone else delt with chronic fatigue, and what did you do to keep yourself going?
I’ve never been able to squat 405, and I want to work on a lot of glaring weakpoints/shitty upper body joints in the upcoming couple of months. I would also like to get my bodyfat down but I wont compromise other goals to do that. I’ve been eating about two pounds of various meats, plus eggs, and dairy, with a 100g of protein shake every night before bed. I try to eat a salad, and some potatoes everyday as well.
Any information, or advice would be appreciative.
