How many of us used to have toys when we were kids that ran off of batteries, do you remember when energizers first came to market? I was ecstatic they would just keep going and going and going, the commercial said so, I begged my parents for those batteries so I could drive my remote control car for more then 5 minutes at a time with out having to recharge them or replace them. Well now I am an adult and I wish they could make some type of batteries to keep my wife from being so fatigued. I mean she is just like the old toy, we will be talking and all of a sudden I see her eyes start to drop, she fights it and then the speech becomes slow, then the words become slurred. I usually reach over and turn the switch off on her (tell her I love her and that she needs to close her eyes and sleep for a bit) after about 20 minutes her eyes pop open and where ever she was in the conversation she is right back at it never skipping a beat until the charge wears off again. Wonder is they should take fatigue out of CFS and replace it with the word energy. It’s a learning process to be able to have a deep conversation and be in the middle of making a point to have to turn the egg timer and wait for the recharge, but it’s worth it, no need to get upset or frustrated as even a person in great health needs to recharge the batteries from time to time. All we can do is hope that one day the energizer bunny will figure out a way to help with energy for all the sufferers of chronic fatigue syndrome.
