I know I should possibly go to a real doctor but I always feel like such a hypochondriac when I go to the Doc for anything other than a pill subscription.
Anyway - just thought I'd ask here to see if you think an appointment is necessary. Ever since I've had my jaw surgery in October I've been extremely tired. More tired than when I even had a newborn. My boys are now 5 & almost 3 and sleep through the night. DS2 gets up anywhere from 5am onwards but even if I go to sleep at a decent time I'm still completely exhausted.
I used to be extremely active. I'm talking sports 4 nights a week and running almost daily. Now just the thought of exerting any energy just about makes me want to cry!
I'm on holidays - have barely worked in the term before that (as I was on leave 5 weeks) and it takes a lot for me to even get my housework done. I was dead set an overachiever in that regard too. Never a folding basket laying around but now it takes me DAYS to contemplate folding.
I've had friends say general anaesthetic can take months to wear off but it's now been almost 3 months and the first thing I did after my boys went to their dad today was sleep!
I've put on weight (despite eating pretty well) and I just feel so used up. I feel like it's affecting me as a mummy because I barely want to play with my kids. I just want to lay on the couch. I'm so embarrassed even admitting this as I feel like such a horrible sloth
What do you think???
