    Yawn . . . Zzzzzzz!

    I don't remember ever having energy. I don't know if my low energy is from depression, which is likely, or if there might be something more like a thyroid problem or a magnesium- or iron-deficiency. All I know is that I wake up feeling like I could sleep several more hours and...

    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.

    Usually Only When I'm Working

    I am mostly exhausted when I am working. I come home in the afternoons after work and I feel like I could collapse immediately and sleep until the next morning. Unfortunately, I'm a mother to a young child so I can't do that. I have dishes to do, dinner to cook, bathes to fix...

    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...

    Soo Sleepy All the Time.

    I think it is related to depression, but I am always tired.  I slept from 4 AM- 1 PM and it took every ounce of energy for me to get out of the bed, right now it is 6 PM and I have been feeling like curling up for a nap for the past two hours.  This is my life...

    Exhausted

    I'm often exhausted and it is due to PTSD.  PTSD causes exhaustion and so many other symptoms.  Whatever injury harms our mental or emotional bodies will probably have an effect on our physical bodies as well.I try to take care of myself as best as possible.
