    I took my medicine for anemia.

    I woke up too late for breakfast but ate breakfast late anyway and a meal from Newk's. I don't is it because of my sleeping patterns and how I eat but I suddenly feel so fatigue.

    I never have enough energy to do anything on

    Me Too...

    I do lots of work and I always force myself to work until the work is done. In short... I am a restless person and thus the reason why I am always very tired.

    Very Much So

    I've never had a very healthy sleeping pattern; insomnia has been my companion ever since I was a child. It's gotten better over the years, but now I've developed a new problem: I'm not used to having a regular sleeping pattern. Therefore, I cannot keep one up, even though...

    Why I'm Soooo Tired.

    A lot of it has to do with my military past.  I am also tired of being home alone and not having someone there with me.  I have been single for a very long time, and have never truly been in love.  I think it is because of the fact that I use a cane to get around...

    For some reason I feel tired all the time - or, actually, I don't, but only because I have the time to sleep 10-12 hrs every night... I could use that time to study or work, but then my brain would not be awake half the time and I would feel like crap... So what to do? I know it...

    No, a Nap Won't Help

    It's difficult for you to understand that my tiredness is not cured by 6, 7 or even 8 hours of sleep.  The only thing that will cure my tiredness is myelin.   Have any to spare?
