    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...

    Its Something to Do

    Sleeping is good, the only bad part is nightmares, which, unfortunately, I get vividly and not infrequently. But apart from that sleeping is one of the best things, you snuggle up nice and warm under a cozy blanket with the fan cranked up so the wind brushes your face softly, as...

    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...

    Fatigue Controls My Life

    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...

    Worn Out

    It really scares me to some point. I feel completely worn out, like all the life has been sucked out of me. I feel like a zombie, and just want to sleep the whole day. Feels like I've been working non stop. I hope it's just a period or smth.

    No Energy

    It's like this for years. I have never a lot of energy. I feel tired often. I don't feel like doing things. I don't feel energetic and happy. When I try to dance or do something that happy energetic people do, I get tired. It feels like there is a really heavy something in my...

    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...

    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 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...

    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.

    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.
