I have no energy
My strength is gone
I struggle to concentrate
I’m totally withdrawn

I slept for sixty hours
In four consecutive days
My thoughts are disconnected
Reality is a haze

I feel like a prisoner
I’m in a stupor
Slowly I get out of bed
I’m unsteady and I stagger

I’m lethargic
Utterly fatigued and spent
What shall I do
I feel such torment

I’m exhausted
Beyond the extreme
Feeling defeated
I feel like I could scream

Everything is a struggle
No matter how trivial
This is a battle
Both mental and physical
