I figure this is about the biggest, least judgemental audience I'm going to get to ask this question. Are any of you just ALWAYS tired without any apparent reason? I am and it's been like this for years. I can remember going to my doctor even before my daughter was born and telling them how tired I am. It's not a physical tired so much as a mental tired. My mind and head most of the time just feel like I need to lay down and take a nap. But when I do the naps don't make me feel better. I'm 36, female (for those of you that hadn't figured that out!), have a happy family life and good social life. My health is good although I'm probably a good 60 pounds overweight. But even when I was thin I felt like this. I go to the doctor regularly, have had my thyroid tested and everything else. I've taken vitamins in the past although I can't say they ever made me feel any different. The only time I can say I feel really awake is when I'm outside doing whatever activity has taken me out there and it has to be on my time. The earlier I have to get up the crummier I feel. Getting up before 6am actually makes my stomach hurt - even if it's for an activity I love. Unfortunately, my employer is completely unflexible and won't even consider letting me work 9-6. Any ideas, suggestions, solutions? I'm so tired of feeling this way! I'd say I've felt like this since I was 20 or so.
