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.

trust me i know what you mean - i have so many days where im always tired - even if i get the proper amount of sleep i am still tired when i wake up - even after hours of being awake i am still tired - but there is nothing wrong with me

Me too, I sleep 11 hours or so on the days I have to get up for work (even then, I'm dragging myself out of bed) and maybe 14 or so when I don't have to be some where mandatory; and even on those days I'll lay in bed all day if I can.

The sadder part is, I actually have had multiple check ups. I don't eat much meat, but they say I have plenty of iron, my thyroid is fine, I'm not overweight, and I'm basically all-around physically healthy.

This upsets me, lol.

Then there's the mental aspect of it all-- Am I depressed? Anxiety, Stress?

Well, I've tried multiple medications for depression until I finally gave up. I've tried therapy, had psychiatric evaluations. I'm not really that depressed anymore, just depressed at the fact that I never have any energy, and am currently on a low-grade dose of xanex for anxiety.

SO... does this just mean I'm lazy, or maybe my environment is just too unstimulated. I work 40-48 hours a week at a hotel where I am constantly confined in a small quiet space, alone, (where I'm at now); and since I sleep so much, my life consists of nothing but work.

And I am 19 years old.

What I'm betting is that people sleep more when they don't have a self-motivated reason to want to wake up. I for sure don't.

If it isn't something medical, it may just be that you're bored with life and need something to look forward to. Good luck, I'm trying very hard myself...

I understand though, that finding exciting things in life is the least of your worries when it takes all you can to just get out of bed.

i totally know where you're coming from. have you had a full check up? it couldn't hurt. in my case, being diabetic and working nights doesn't help
