I Am Always Exhausted

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 11,024 People

    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?

    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 have been exhausted

    since I was 13. I've been to several doctors and been treated for depression (not depressed,just tired), my thyroid, I've tried diet, exercise, vitamins...nothing helped. Finally Mr Dr suggested Provigil. I hesitated for nearly two years due tho personal and family history of...

    so I skipped a ton of my classes

    because I haven't felt mentally fit to be in a classroom environment and I've been having anxiety. I ended up calling in my own absences at the office while pretending to be my mom. they found out about it and now I've gotten an in-school suspension until potentially the end of...

    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...

    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 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.

    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.

    I got about 6 hours of sleep last nite.

    It was borderline torture to get out of bed. I was OK the first few hours at work. Now I'm completely exhausted. I'm so tempted to take a nap on my lunch break. Naps don't always help though....the struggle.

    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.. :(

    recently, I've been tired ALL the time.

    I sleep normal amounts but am still so tired all day. I'm on a new antidepressant/ anti anxiety medication and I think it might be causing it

    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.

    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...
