    But I've Got a Pretty Good Idea Why...

    I'd say it has something to do with lack of sleep and my caffeine addiction.  I dunno just a thought! lol!

    Pills

    All the meds I take make me so tired I can't function, even if I tried.  I can't stand the side effects.  I wish there were a med that was free of the side stuff so I could go on with life and not look drunk all the time

    All the Time

    Which is surprising since I sleep most of the day. Or coudl that be the reason why?? Who knows. I'm constantly having to cover my mouth because I yawn so often when I'm up and about. Then I go back to bed for ages. I get up again, still sleepy.

    I Just Want to Go Back to Bed

    Especially ever since I started working. Being awake for daylight and asleep for the night is not natural to me. And I need more sleep than the average person usually anyway
