Exhausted

I can't stand this shite anymore, I am exhausted!

I have slept for about 5+ hours. Then later on I went back to bed and slept for another 2 or 3 hours and now I can go back to bed and sleep some more.  My body does not function the way it is supposed to function...Damn me!  I don't even have the energy to take a shower, yes to this point!  Will I?  I don't know.  If I can't, then tomorrow is another day!

OH!! Sister! I fully understand where you are at!<br />
I have episodes myself where I can't get out of bed and get my day started. I'm in bed but not sleeping or sleep but not well at all.<br />
Many days I force myself to go to work and have had just a few hours of sleep.<br />
I don't know what will work for you. I just have to force myself to move forward. Sometimes I am like a little kid and need to promise myself a "treat" if I will get my day moving!<br />
This is a form of isolation from your PTSD.<br />
It's hard to "re-engage" in life, really hard when you have life's bumps along the way.<br />
It just comes down to motivation vs the payoff! Find something to motivate you.<br />
Like...get up and send me a "Nasty gram" saying how stupid I am for trying to motivate you!<br />
Hee Hee! I know, not very funny. Just don't hurt yourself with isolating....<br />

Hi Lobo6 :) Sorry you are also having these problems, hugs. I guess, we have to take it as it comes and be strong regardless even if it is hard We need trying to be motivated. Thanks for the comment, it made me somewhat smile at the same time.
