Well, the fatigue crash that I thought might happen tomorrow has happened tonight :(
I was going along quite happily today, feeling quite awake and so I did a bit of tidying and I dyed my hair! I must say I am happy with my hair!! I sat down after I had done these bits and low and behold I fell asleep. I have to explain though that when I say I fell asleep, it's not like just a light nap. I am completely out of it. And I have no control over it.
I had heard of fatigue before I had MS, but I never really understood it. I assumed it was just feeling more tired than normal, but it's not. It is something that takes over completely. I find that I am not able to complete ordinary tasks without a lot of extra effort. It can be very debilitating.

So an early night for me tonight!
