Being super organized is the only way I manage. I found that using a calendar that syncs between all my devices is a huge help. I’ve started insisting on the first appointment of the day with all my doctors. I have routines I stick to, shopping for food, cleaning the house, yard work is always scheduled the same time and day of the week. It doesn’t always work out but typically I’m on target. I menu plan lunch and dinners, I have six weeks of menus that I rotate. I also meal prep once a month and use a food saver to freeze meals. This one I stole from my grandma…… Every New Years Eve I take my list of typical birthday/ anniversary cards i will need for the coming year. I then watch TV on New Years Eve and address the envelopes file them in a box by date. I put the date in the corner of the envelope that the stamp will cover. It was a struggle at first for me but it’s second nature now.

Exercise, exercise has the possible to cause orexin in the large intestine to cross the brain barrier to the VTA ,and wake up part of the function. Dont exercise at night, preferably between 3 and 6 pm.🙂(Of course, this is what I found through my own research, and does not represent any medical advice.)

Well, started a Keto diet! Heard it supposed to helped with fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue! Only been on it for two weeks now! I noticed I don’t have heartburn anymore!

The keto is really helping me! I also take a drink that has 30 of protein in it! Gives some energy too! I only nap once a day or sometimes I don’t nap at all!

If I have a sleep attack, I stop what I am doing, and let it happen. If I fight it things go completely ary.
Usually within 5 to 10 minutes I wake up and can go back to what I was doing.
