This isn’t just dangerous for train conductors. Our roads are clogged with fender benders to tragedies because of everyday people, like you and me, who are driving while drowsy.
I should know. This is exactly the problem that started this ten-year research and recovery program now called Fatigue Be Gone. See, I was driving from San Diego to Virginia and no matter what hour of the day, I was exhausted. Coffee didn’t help. Candy bars didn’t help. A good night’s sleep didn’t help.

One of the easiest and most enjoyable ways I’ve found to boost my energy, physically and emotionally, is by volunteering as a dog-walker at my local shelter. I call it an “energy-boost secret” because so few people seem to know about it!
While it is no secret that exercise is essential to boost our energy and maintain our brain-power, we who battle fatigue also know how easy it is to bail out of the commitment we make to ourselves, even to our friend who is expecting us at the gym … When you’re tired all the time the couch looks huge and comfy and the gym is so far, far away. One tomorrow leads to the next …
Arthritis Joint Pain can be your curse or your wake up call and a blessing. Guess who gets to choose? Three letter word — sounds like Casper the ghost’s favorite word …
What causes arthritis joint pain in the first place? For most it is simply a side affect of aging, a result of lifetime wear and tear. The most common form, osteoarthritis, shows up as joint inflammation and swelling, joint pain, stiffness and decreased range of motion.
