When you are tired rest. And on the days you feel good do some light excercise, walk, streches, try a craft. I started by learning to do the no- sew throws. I’ve since have started learning to quilt, draw, water aerobics. But walking doesn’t cost anything just time. Set a goal are a distance an build up. I found out my phone records my steps each day. I have and do some if not all of the things. I just mentioned. I also went back to school to get my bachelor degree. I walked; I wanted to finish: I needed to show my daughters no matter what don’t give up fight ttill you can’t fight anymore. KEEP TRYING

I find writing a list of things you want to achieve is a good way to start your day. Write down even the smallest little things, then cross them off as you go, when you are struggling keep looking back at your list and reminding yourself of what you have achieved for the day.
Also when you get up for the day make your bed and get dressed. Even if you are going back to bed or blobbing for the day, The simple act of making your bed and getting dressed ( even if it is clean PJs). Seeing this tricks you brain into thinking your are ready for your day and it gives you a burst of endorphines which releases some energy.
Bananas are a good source of natural energy, also small amounts of dark chocolate.
I hope some of these things help.

I was diagnosed with Lupus over 6 years ago .. Unfortunately Fatigue has been a a part of my Life from day one .. I try not to get overwhelmed and limit my stress levels .. I take naps and pay attention to what and how my body feels .. I walk at least 30 minutes a day and drink plenty of water .. no sodas .. I take vitamins and my medications daily (at the same time every day) I pray and meditate.. Pace yourself and try and have a positive attitude ☺️..

I know that everyone has their own opinions of CBD and other natural medicinal things. I used to have the same issue (sleep). Getting a good solid sleep was something I never did until I started CBD. I started out with the drops under my tongue and now I use a capsule that is a combination of CBD resin and muscadine grape seed. I take it mid day. After it got in my system I started sleeping more than 2 hours at a time! (I started taking it for my joint pain and it does assist with that as well) I just recently started taking "Golden Revive" by UpWellness and I've noticed that my sleep is even better. It has Magnesium in it so I am pretty sure that is helping as well. I actually sleep beyond 4 AM!!! :)
It's awful when you're absolutely exhausted and cannot sleep. I hope this information helps you or someone!
God Bless you and I pray you peaceful rest soon!!

I was a dental hygienist for 20 years. Do your research on implants & also on the dentist. You can check w/ state health department if the doctor had pending lawsuits & has been in trouble with the state. Get more than 1 opinion . Not ALL dentists are created equal. I've seen alot. Hope this helps.
