Did exercise ever help anyone, even a little bit? All it seems to do for me is make me even tireder than I usually am--which is pretty tired. I had to sit down this morning to go through the pockets of my son's jeans before washing them. Lifting them damp out of the washer was impossible. Same thing with our oversized towels. This evening I fell and couldn't get up. My husband brought a step stool with a high rise handle in the back, and I finally was able to pull myself up. I'm ashamed to admit it, but I'm 80 lbs overweight, and I know this doesn't help, but I'm lucky enough to have a spa, and even the water exercise doesn't seem to help the overwhelming fatigue.
