Join a self-help group for people with fatigue
Aside from talking to friends and family about their fatigue, many people find that joining a self-help group is useful. You can talk about how you’re getting on with your fatigue, and you can learn from other people’s experiences. Hearing from someone in the same situation as you can be really helpful in enabling you to become more confident in your decisions.
There may be local self-help groups for your particular condition, so ask your rheumatology team. Some organisations run self-management courses for people with long-term conditions such as arthritis, and some of these may address fatigue.
