I would describe myself as your typical go-getter. Always buzzing around from one thing to the next, whether it be my work as an elementary school teacher, taking a graduate class, getting my masters degree, working out hard in the gym, scrapbooking, meeting friends for dinner, whatever it was, I was doing it.
I remember one of the first symptoms I recognized as being abnormal at the age of about 27 or 28 was fatigue.
I didn’t know it was a symptom then, I thought I was just tired. I remember coming home from work and just wanting to lay on the couch and rest. This was not like me. I was the type that spent a day at work and right to the gym, every day of the week, since college.
