    The only thing worse

    than the feeling of realizing you nodded off someplace inappropriate is looking around and not being sure whether you've been asleep or not.

    I'm so used to getting 2-3 hours of sleep a

    night now, getting a 45-minute nap in seems like more of a nuisance than a blessing. I wake up disoriented and feeling like I missed something, which I did. Sleep.

    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...

    Always Tired

    I don't know what is wrong with me.  It seems like I don't have any energy ever.  Even when I was younger, I was always exhausted.  I have absolutely no energy to do anything and I am so fatigued and sleepy all the time.

    I always need a nap from 4pm

    until 8pm. I work 3-hour shifts and a deli and it's absolutely draining. Coffee/any form of caffeine offers little help ._.

    When my father leaves he lets me out of my room

    to clean the kitchen, basement, garage, and his lair (a.k.a room ). When he gets home I have to run into my room and wiat for him to lock the door. If i dont do just that everyday then the schedule will change probably for the rest of my life but thats a different story.

    But not in a tired or drowsy sense,

    really. I am exhausted in that the fires that so passionately fueled my creativity are dying in many ways and dead in others. Life without passion is not life at all, but a hollow shell that should be filled with love and life and zeal! If one does not feel this fulfillment, and...

    I work, go to school,

    am a mom and a wife. I never have any me time and I am always exhausted but I just can't seem to get my mind to stop! I'm so motivated and determined, yet feel so defeated and cornered at the same time. Thus is life?

    I'm tired all the time.

    I slept for three days straight and still felt tired. I've had a lot of hard times in my life and I'm always down. I feel like sleeping is a way to cope and get away from the world and my problems. But every time I wake up, I feel even worse than I did before.

    Emotionally tired. Mentally tired.

    Physically tired. Sexually tired. Is it laziness? No motivation to do anything. I wish I could trade lives with my dog so I can just lay around all day and have no responsibility.
