Fatigue Controls My Life

I'm twenty years old and I guess the first thing I should say about this story is that I have been struggling with my weight my whole life. I'm at my biggest weight yet- 200 pounds. I also have panic disorder and was diagnosed a long time ago with clinical depression. I've had vitamin B-12 and iron deficiency in the past but my most recent blood work results all came back normal.

The funny this is, I haven't felt this horrible ever in my life. It doesn't matter what I do or how too long or too little I sleep, I'm constantly tired. And not just the kind of tired that a quick nap with take care of. I mean full-out lethargic. Everything seems to take an effort. Holding my head up, standing up, walking up or down the staris and even talking takes too much. I can barely move the whole day from the lethargy and fatigue but when it's nighttime, I can't fall asleep.

I don't know why this is happening to me. If I get eight hours of sleepy, I'm tired all day. If I get eleven hours of sleep, I'm tired all day. I'll admit, I don't have a very good diet. I eat as little as possible, which I know is bad for my metabolism. I tend to eat at around 2pm and wont eat until dinner. Those are the only two times I usually eat in a day.

I don't drink much of anything. Sometimes I'll have too much pop. But sometimes I drink water too.

So could this extreme fatigue problem be just from my diet? I know a my boyfriend and best friend have a much worse diet than I do but they seem to be fine all day where I could sleep all day and still be tired.

But trying to exercise and lose the weight I want to lose is impossible when I feel like I can't move.
