I Am Always Tired

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 1,462 People

    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.

    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 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.

    tired. I have sleep apnea..am supposed to sleep with a CPAP machine...but that thing drives me crazy & I can't sleep with it on. Even if I DO manage to get to sleep with it on, I take it off during the night without remember doing so.:( I get up early now so I can exercise...

    I could sleep for 12 hours

    and still be tired. I want so badly to sleep and wake up feeling refreshed. That's how sleep is supposed to work. You go to sleep, get about 9+ hours of sleep, then wake up feeling refreshed and well rested and ready to start your day. For me it's go to sleep, get 7+ hours of...

    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?

    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!

    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 Love Sleeping, But Not All the Time...

    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...

    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...

    I've lost my appetite

    because of self-medicating and I don't tell anyone about it. I like it when they worried about my health and I feel so tired almost all day. I'm a selfish brat :)

    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...

    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.

    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.

    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...
