The rest I had at the end of last year was incredible. I like being a busy person (and I get told to slow down a lot), but I just needed some time and space for my brain and body to rest.
Being on medication was the most frustrating thing in the world for me. I was constantly exhausted, and nothing ever shook how tired I felt. I’d go to bed tired, have a great sleep, and wake up just as tired. I went from being a girl who would sort the cats, do house chores, do eight and a half hours at work, go food shopping, go to the gym, and get back home and have dinner, to a girl who struggled to walk to work, work a normal day, and walk home.
