I Am Always Tired

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 1,930 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.

    Hey, I am always tired.

    I work long-ish hours, 10-11hrs per day 5 days per week. I don't do a lot of exercise, mainly because I don't have the time in the week because I am just so tired when I get home from work to do any and at the weekend I feel like I need to catch up on sleep. I eat well and try...

    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 look forward to a day

    where I am no longer tired every single day. I have three young daughters close in age and they are hard work. I love them loads of course but I look forward to being able to sleep better some day!

    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 ;/

    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 know what it feels like to not be tired.

    I've been exhausted every day of my life for the past 10 years or so now. Either my insomnia keeps me up all night or my depression makes me sleep all day, ever day. Even when I get a normal 6-8 hours of good sleep, I'm still sleepy all day. There may be some underlying health...

    I'm pretty miserable right now.

    Some could argue that I have no right to be. I have a roof over my head, a job, a family (however dysfunctional), a car (that was given to me by my best friend), and a boyfriend that cares for and supports me. On paper, I should be ecstatic. But I'm not. My job stresses me out...

    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'm always feeling wiped out. Always tired. I'm tired right now. I got some sleep last night but not enough. It's always the same. I have a good life. I have a nice place with the woman I love. We are happy here. I go to work every day to keep us here. She works too. It's just...

    I could sleep all night

    and still take a two or three hour nap. Sometimes I take two naps. Doctors never found anything. I gave up and succumbed to the sleep.

    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?

    for 10+ hours every day and still wake up and feel like I've only gotten 2 hours of sleep. I just want to feel refreshed and like I can take on the day; that happens so rarely

    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...
