(I think they would also attest that my nursing knowledge,skills, coordination, compassion and teaching were intact and still valuable.) I live off of ibuprofen
because my body aches/hurts all the time. And the only thing that helps after 6 hours, is rest. I still have tremendous fatigue mid afternoon, but responds well to rest to allow for sedentary work in the evenings. I can still work on my garden, acreage, home, but 4-6 hours is the maximum on a day - generally 2-4 hours.
