I was diagnosed with cirrhosis a few months ago and it has been a roll coaster. I have finally evened out my blood pressure and heart rate with medication changed but the extreme fatigue is what is getting me now. I have no energy. I am working full time and I am literally sleeping on my lunch hour. How do I shake this problem. I am 45 and I have been tired more than normal but now seems 10 times worse.

This is mentally, emotionally, physically draining. Also there is so much I do not know.
