So, when my therapist asked me about my health, I told her how tired I was.
She told me the reason why I was feeling tired and exhausted at times is because I have a lot going on mentally. I have the combining of more alternate personalities, more personalities making themselves known (I'm NOT creating new ones - these are ones that I created when I was a toddler, teenager and young adult), stress from some occurrences that have happened plus some other things that I have to do in relation to my therapy. My brain is using up a lot of energy.
I am told that over time, as things slow down, I will feel better and gain my normal energy level back. I knew that a person could feel drained from emotions but I didn't have any idea that all of the work my brain is currently doing, could leave me feeling extremely tired.
This is a time for a lot of self-care.
I stay out of crowds as much as possible because of the overload on my senses.
Yesterday morning, I had so much information overload at a meeting, that I was exhausted for the rest of the day and night.
A lot of time for meditation or quiet is in order for the brain and body to relax. Television and radio noise is stimulation and will overload a person's senses.
Keep phone conversations and text messages to a minimum because of stimulation.
It can take up to a month for someone to get back on track if they take the time to take care of themselves with soothing activities.
