I am permanently tired but unsure as to the cause (or causes - as is my GP) as I take 19 ppd (pills per day) and 20 on Sundays. At least I'm still alive! (In between the long sleeps) I don't find the medical profession too helpful with these symptoms which I have had since a heart bi-pass some 18 years ago! At least I.m still alive (as I said earlier!) Are you still enjoying life? I do most of the time, and, you guessed it.... At least I'm still alive! Good luck with your health PS - I have tried the private sector(several times) in desperation but all they want is ones dosh! Should have known better, but.... At least I'm still alive!!!
