There was a poll similar to this on the 'other site', and the last I checked about 75-80% were worse in the morning, and better later in the day. I don't start to feel "better", until about 3pm or so, then have to take a nap after "lunch", then feel better after dinner, and by 11pm or so feel almost 'normal', although that's definitely relative. 10-15 years ago I could go out and walk for a mile or more in the early evening and not pay for it too much the next day, maybe 2 or 3 times a week. But now, I can walk down the hall and back at 11pm, whereas I can barely move around my apartment until 3pm or so. I feel like I'm 90 at 6:30am, and about 45 at 11pm...(with 90 year old muscles).
