I Am Always Exhausted

    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 ******* hate being a doctor.

    Here I am, 2 years out of med school, a "prestigious" surgery resident at a "prestigious" hospital where I get the "privilege" of working 100+ hours a week, every week with no end in site. They made the 80 hour work week limit for residents but nobody cares. Nobody follows it...

    I don't know if this is a medical issue

    or what, but I do intend on bringing this up at my next check up. Because it's like no matter how much sleep I got the night before, I'm STILL extremely exhausted as if I had none atall.

    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.

    I have so many things

    that I need/want to do but I don't have any energy or will to get off my ***. What motivates you even when you may feel exhausted?

    I can never not be tired.

    I can't sometimes drink redbull and fall asleep right after. Or it takes me two hours before I fall asleep.

    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.

    Might be suffering from narcolepsy,

    'cause I've been dead tired all the time lately. I feel like I've been doing more living in my dreams, and less in real life. I should get checked.. :(

    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...

    The day started good.

    Well, good isn't really the right word. But it was better than it usually is. But I ended up pushing someone I love away and did something stupid. I'm tried of making these mistakes. I'm tired of pushing people way. It sucks the life out of me. I'm so exhausted. All the time...

    with. When I'm around strangers, I'm awkward and quiet, minding my own business. People see that as being snobbish. I just like to be quiet 'cause I'm really bad at socializing (no matter how hard I try). I just want someone to just know me and maybe accept the REAL me...

    I'm always exhausted,

    and I think that I am the one who usually exhausts myself by worrying about random stuff or just thinking too much. Talking to people in person exhausts me, because of my constant thoughts of what others are thinking.

    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. :(

    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...
