    It Comes and Goes...

    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...

    What can I say? I love my sleep.

    It's an escape from this world we live in. This world in which there are things like pain, suffering, famine, natural disasters and more. I'm sure there are good things about this world, but in my opinion the bad definitely seems to outweigh the good. Unfortunate really...

    No matter how little

    or how long of a sleep, i am constantly tired. My eyes seem to randomly hurt ever now and again; i also fall asleep randomly. Tho i enjoy sleep, this isnt benefiting me in anyway..

    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'm a Chronic Anemic,

    I have found an awesome coping tool that can truly help others Thrive! I'd love to share that with those who need it the most. The always tired, the listless, the depressed and the ones who crave that overall wellness most people seem to take for granted. You can also add me on...

    I can't wait until my schedule changes at work.

    I am so sick and tired of waking up at 230am to be to work by 3. SO DONE. I am emotionally, and mentally drained. My whole body hurts. I need a vacation.

    When I'm not working,

    I'm working on something else, anything that gets me money lately. I also feel like "pretty girls" have it easier. I wish I had a body like my coworker.

    I think it's time I visit the sleep doctor.

    Ever since I was about 8, I never slept well. I have a recommendation to see, but twice now it hasn't gone through... Meaning I'm going to have to call up the main line and go through the entire phone tree before I can find out if someone can properly help me. Their medical...

    I sleep 10 hours a night

    and I'm still tired, If I don't sleep those 10 hours I get a migraine and my left eye gets starts dropping. It gets to the point where I need to sleep in order to get rid of the migraine. No one in my family understands that I'm always tired and I hate it ;/

    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.

    I have a sleep disorder.

    No matter how exhausted I am, if I don't take something to sleep I will either not sleep or only sleep for 2 or 3 hours. Which is bad news when you have a mental illness. So, I take sleeping pills. And it does not matter how long I sleep or what I do to combat fatigue when I am...

    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...

    I don't want to leave my apartment.

    It's too cold, it's too rainy, and I'm way too tired to even drag myself out of bed. It's been too long since I've had a good 8 hours of sleep. Why is it so incredibly hard?

    If I could, I would sleep 14 hours straight. I love sleeping. It's one of my favorite things in the world. It's an escape from life. It's refreshing, soothing, and comforting. However, it hinders my ability to finish anything during the day. I daydream of sleeping while I'm doing...
