In October of 2007, I had a severe flareup. I was in bed literally for 6 weeks, then was shipped to a mental hospital for another week because "it had to be depression" - you know how the story goes. I have never fully recovered. I am exhausted all the time. I have trouble moving. I feel weaker and weaker all the time. I cant lift anything - even a 5 pound weight for me is extremely heavy. I feel like my muscles have "atrophied", which is partial or complete wasting away of the muscle. Outside of lifting weights, is there anything I can do? Does anyone else feel this happening to them?
