3 panels. First panel, I sit on a couch, dinosaur looks out window and says 'It's lovely outside! Let's go for a walk!' Second panel, I say, 'Counterpoint...' Third panel, I have flopped backward and am having a nap.


It’s been a little while since I’ve posted a comic, and that’s largely because, well … I’ve been asleep a lot.

It’s just my usual Chronic Fatigue Syndrome fatigue (which comes and goes and will continue to come and go) and it’s actually lifted a lot over the last few weeks compared to how bad it was November/December last year. But, even so, I’m still working on getting back on top of my doing-stuff routine, which includes making comics.

I’m completely fine. I even know exactly what triggered the fatigue to be particularly bad, and it’s nothing to worry about. Still annoying for me, of course, but this is just life with a chronic illness.

      Thank you <3 I will be okay. I know why I'm more fatigued at the moment, and not only will it pass eventually but it will be worth it in the end.

      Fatigue may cause me to drop out from time to time, but I always come back.

    I relate.

    The biggest challenge for me is forgiving myself for not being my ideal self when my CSF level, and thus my energy for daily life, is a quart low (my phrase). Energy comes and goes, and rolling with the “goes” periods is always a work in progress.

    Here’s to less fatigue…

      Yeah, I struggle whenever my fatigue levels significantly fluctuate … in either direction. If I’m sudden more tired than I’ve been in a while, I’m too used to doing more and it’s extra frustrating to shut down. If I’m suddenly less tired, then I feel like I should just be ‘better’ and do *everything* (but still can’t), which is also frustrating.

      For me too, rolling with it is a work in progress.

    Sending a big Canadian style hug, it includes donuts and coffee (somehow) and goes on until my body temperature comes back up from zero. 😄
    Glad to see you here and sometimes on IG! I recently started a Twitter account, watch out world, for some carefully considered nuggets of wisdom and self deprecation 😆. Oh and a lot of my toons.

      Thank you for the Canadian virtual hug.

      I also have twitter! And I also use it a bit more than insta, tbh. I will track you down!

      Haha … what triggered that (which I knew at the time but wasn’t ready to say here) was pregnancy. As the baby is out in the world now, the issue is resolved! But thank you.

        I am so behind on my blog emails so I will eventually reach the the post where the baby is out in the world.
        Glad you are fine now

        No worries. I have also been super behind on other people’s blogs (since the baby was born. I guess maybe that’s a decent excuse?)
