Re: Tired all the time

I take iron and vitamin D and that seems to help me alot.Also to exercise and eat healthy might make a difference.Not that I know how or even do.

Re: Tired all the time

Same here with the fatigue. I've been dealing with it since age 12 (am 30 now) but have never been diagnosed with anything. I strongly suspect endometriosis since the onset coincided with my first period.

The fatigue goes hand in hand with lack of attention, depression and amotivation for me. My brain feels foggy and slowed and everything is a giant effort. Stimulants are a miracle remedy for ALL those symptoms but I've never been prescribed anything other than SSRI's and similar worthless drugs that never worked for me. (I was on antidepressants for 9 years with zero improvement). As a result, I've resorted to grey-area stimulants like 2-FMA and 4-FA to manage my symptoms. They work wonders but I worry what they might be doing to my health :\

Without insurance I have little hope for finding a doctor who will take me seriously. The ADD aggravates the depression and feelings of worthlessness but I've yet to be formally diagnosed. Bah.

Re: Tired all the time

May I ask where you get those obscure stimulants? silk road? Yes, I suggest you see a psychiatrist and get dg. that way you'll get stimulants prescribed.

Re: Tired all the time

Well...I take 2 gr of fish oil; 5,000 UI vitamin D-3 every other day; b-complex; P-5-P; and various other vitamins/herbs and I'm still tired all the time.

I've tried Nuvigil but that only "wake me up" for about 4 hours. Besides, it interfers with birth control pills. I've been on numerous anti-depressants over the years they only make things worse. Thanks to Wellbutrin my memory is shot etc. etc.

The only thing that works for me is Tramadol. Unfortunately my doctor would rather prescribe Cymbalta so I've resorted to OP but taking 50 mg every other day seems to improve my well being and gives me energy so I don't see a point in stopping.

Re: Tired all the time

If You have trouble falling asleep try taking melatonin. My pdoc says it works for some people and doesn't have the side effects as over the counter sleep aides. it's all natural

Re: Tired all the time

I only get 'tired' all the time when i'm not making a change that needs to be made and i'm resisting facing my truth - like now - i'm feeling like a prisoner to my kid and while I told him my feelings are infantile like his outbursts - they arise from a similar place for us both - frustrated efforts - so let go is my advise...no expectation and still go to school - do your best.

I'm in a precarious position and i'm so bloody tired of this SSDD from my own son that I decided to be true to me and serve him I'd best divest from the whole thing. He can do nothing and cover his rent and i'll go on my merry way.

I cannot tolerate for long those who sit in their utter misery as I've watched my own brother go from a ski instructor/stunt ski'r and mtn biker/restaurant owner to in only 2 yrs a mind in a lifeless body only fearing the loss of his ability to swallow or breathe

I look at the horror of my family's early death - the men - and I think it means nothing because I do not buy the whole 'sins' thing -I truly think that we all have lessons and that's that - we gotta figure our own out - it's not my job to ever dictate to my son my goals - I just set him up to know it's always a choice and consequence - so if he does drop out and he's serious I told him that he must handle the whole thing - I am no longer going to be involved if he waffles as usual - and then i'm a moron for fighting for him - but in this case - I just told him that I am going to start to focus on my joy - and he do the same and to text me if he has an issue otherwise to spend some time daily working on his goals - like going back to WA so he can live with friends in our home and I can be free to finally take care of only me.

That's the kind of 'tired' that only goes away when you bury your dead. I'm cremating mine. With blessings.

Re: Tired all the time

I have never been able to fall right to sleep. Some people can fall a sleep as soon as their head hits the pillow.

Re: Tired all the time

I'm up to 12 hours sleeping per day.

I think it's mostly because there's nothing interesting to be awake for.

Nothing stressful nothing joyful.

By that I mean we're up - if there's something interesting to do.

Personally - I'm simply waiting for a world without money to materialise.

It's no fun waiting for a bus.

Sleep 'd seem like the best way to wile away a wait.
