IBS leaves me feeling lethargic 99.9% of the time. Even when I’m having minimal symptoms, I still feel tired. I ache, I yawn, I feel heavy and I crave rest and sleep.
After a whirlwind trip to Dubai last week my body still seems to be playing catchup. I had bad anxiety the day we flew which led itself to a nasty IBS flare up which I’m still recuperating from. AKA the IBS down days. The ones where you’re so exhausted and lethargic that you can barely get out of bed. This weekend I felt the full effect of said down days and it sucked. Massively.
