Can you say YAWN?

I can't get over this sleeping "illness" I've developed. I am only content while in bed sleeping and having dreams. I can barely function when I'm woken up. I ultimately end up back in bed after getting up for an hour. This is a miserable existence for me. I know that my little's are very active at night time but it's never made me feel this bad before. Then, I wonder, is it my grief that's causing this fatigue? I've lost the 5 most important people in my life over the past few years. Maybe I am depressed, I don't know anymore. I take 3 antidepressants and still feel tired and blue. I bought some B12 supplements today as I have been told they are the miracle I need. I am desperate to find a "cure" for us. It's so frustrating and I feel like people don't understand what I am saying. I feel like they think I'm a hypochondriac or something, especially the doctors. They think just because my thyroid level is normal that I should be doing leaps in the air or something. grrrrrrrrrrrrrrr I need motivation, energy and hope. Anyone have some of that to spare?

  1. depending on what meds you're on the fatigue could be a side effect. ik when i was on zoloft to ease my panic attacks it worsened my depression and caused fatigue. also give vitamin d a go. hope things get better for you soon.

  3. I haven't been checked for Narcolepsy but I think it's possible I could be. I have always been tired in my life it's just getting worse as I get older. I used to take Provigil (an anti-narcoleptic) and it helped pretty well but the side effects caused me to stop it.

  4. Hey Sherry,
    B-12 will only work if it is a B-12 complex AND if your B-12 is low. I went through all of this last month with my Doc. My thyroid levels were great but still No energy. I can tell you what helped me get a larger amount of energy was drinking a half a bottle of 5 hour (Maximum) and eating breakfast (That was the key) If I started getting down around lunch I drank the other half and eat a light lunch. I was amazed at the fact I coouldn't stand the bed and getting lots done in the process and at night I slept with a good rest.
    I hope you feel better soon.
