2. When you cancel plans on your friends last minute because out of no where you feel like you've been hit by a tidal wave of fatigue.

3. When you put on makeup and everyone's like "You look amazing! You must be feeling better!" and it takes every ounce of the minimal energy you have left not to jump into a detailed explanation about how you're actually dying inside.
