    I'm twenty years old and I guess the first thing I should say about this story is that I have been struggling with my weight my whole life. I'm at my biggest weight yet- 200 pounds. I also have panic disorder and was diagnosed a long time ago with clinical depression. I've had...

    I'm so behind on homework.

    I hate work. I always want to sleep. I just lack motivation to do anything anymore. I use to be so involved with my community but I feel burnt out. I hate college. I just want to live life a little.

    No Energy

    I've always been very tired; even when I used to sleep through the night. I haven't had much energy since I was a kid. Before sleep decided to abandon me, I was looking for ways to increase my energy. Vitamins seemed to work for a while but then I was moving on to caffiene. Now...

    It's Kind of Scary

    I actually think I might be sick.  No matter what amount of sleep I get, I'm always tired.  And the possibility of sleep apneia is not really comforting.  Now my doctor told me I stop breathing at night.  Greeeeeat.

    Chronic Fatigue Syndrome??

    What the heck does that mean anyway?? I went to the doc, told her I'm always tired and fatigued, so she asked me to do some lab tests. It turned out I have nothing, no anemia or any rare level in my body. So she just said: "you may have CFS" and I was like : "wooot????", so she...

    I've been really tired these past couple of

    days, and I guess all of the extra sleep is really taking a down effect. I feel even more drained when I wake up, and the only thing that helps me is going outside and being active.

    Tired of everything. I wake up

    and I'm already tired. (Physically also). It's just another day of getting myself disappointed because I'm not the smartest or have the best work ethic for college. It's gotten so bad that I missed so many classes and I might fail this semester again. I'm just..... Tired.

    I don't know. Maybe it's lack of sleep, or nutrition or maybe just how I was born, but I've always felt a little lethargic. It's not always really bad, in fact I do have some pretty energetic days. It's just that no matter how awake I feel, or how much energy I seem to have...

    I was ... Even when I was getting 6-8 hours of

    sleep. I thought I was battling depression or maybe had a thyroid problem.. but just recently changed my diet, added a little cardio ( before that I only did hot yoga) , and vitamin D and I feel so much more energy. I'm wondering if I can keep this up .. Only time will tell!

    Yep, Always.

    Even a couple of cups of coffee every single day seem to do nothing to relieve this fatigue. And, when I had a job, I used to drink up to ten cups of coffee a day, and I [still] couldn't function or think straight. And it was hard because I had to deal with hotel guests (I was...
