    Too tired to explain

    now - maybe after a nap.

    I'm like the hulk of sleepiness.

    "Well cap, I'm always tired!" -falls asleep- ha I wish. But that's not the case. My mind festers on my darkness and perpetuates it to the point I feel I'm on the brink of insanity. There's no winning when you're the real enemy. But that's the twisted joke of it all when you're...

    It's already 11pm so I'll be heading off to

    sleep now. To those I was chatting with in PM, I apologize. I have tests and other high school stuff to do tomorrow and I need energy for that. I'll be sure to come back and answer any and all PM's as soon as I get back though~! Have a great day/night!

    I don't know why, but I'm always tired.

    I wake up in the morning and have to drag myself out of bed, I get home from work and find myself lounging on the couch until it's time to actually go to bed. I try making myself get out and do things, but it rarely works. :(

    In 2006, at the age of thirty

    and being at the two-year college forever due to having child, mathematical struggles, and so forth, I transferred to California State University, Dominguez Hills. I learned from my mistakes at the two-year and was determined to not repeat them, so I was on top of everything...

    feeling even more exhausted?

    I need to make a doctors appointment again.

    So tired all the time. I went to bed at 9pm last night and now it's 850pm and I'm in bed again tonight. I typically wake up at 630am! Should be enough sleep! #Hypothyroid... #Under active thyroid... Ugh...... #synthroid 100mg

    My wife relies on me quite a bit.

    She's depressed (I think), so after I go to bed at around 2-3 a.m., I get up with the kids, let her sleep, do chores and make her coffee, then go to work on about 3-4 hours' sleep. Not especially good for my lifespan.

    To be honest I'm never not tired.

    When I was a baby my mom took me to the doctors because she thought something was wrong with me because I would sleep for hours without food. I still today skip meals and events in favor for sleep. Should I be worried?

    I'm always tired no matter what I do.

    It's been this way for years. I have a severe iron deficiency, and now the neurologist things I have narcolepsy on top of that. The thought of me being like this forever scares me. It's been this way since I was 17, and I'm now 25. :(

    I have severe hypothyroidism

    and it causes me to be exhausted and find it hard to get out of bed. I struggle with depression and mood swings from it as well as many other side affects. I wonder if anyone else is exhausted from their thyroid.

    I think my life is quite good.

    .. I mean, it could be worse. It get up every morning and go to university/work depending on my timetable... I have to, I don't like it but that's my life. I don't even know why I try this hard to fit in. Since the end of holidays, I don't want to wake up anymore.

    It's My Theme

    I think the theme of my life lately should be “Tired- A Story of Exhaustion.”  I’m so tired, so tired I can’t think. I can’t think what food to eat or even TO eat most days. I can’t decide what clothes to wear because again that would take too much thought.   Even...

    Maybe it's chronic fatigue syndrome,

    maybe it's depression, maybe it's something else. Hopefully I'll find the answer someday.

    Let me tell you something exhasution: it

    doesn't have to result from physical strain. I have struggled with fatigue my whole life. When I was a kid, it was probably my diet at fault; too much sugar leads to "crashes" where you feel very sleepy. As a teen-going-on-20, I began suffering from fatigue caused by clinical...

    I just have no reason to continue I'm always
