    I went to bed before 9 pm last night and I woke up exhausted. Almost an hour later and Im STILL yawning!

    Its been like this for almost a week now. I dont do anything hardcore during the day. Wake up, take my son to school, come home plop down on BYC [​IMG], play toys with my other son, make lunch, go pick son up, cook dinner, go to bed. Few little things in between but nothing out of the ordinary.

    Im wondering if Im skipping out on something in the food department?? [​IMG]


    Im...just....so...sleepzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

    I think I'm going through something similar.
    I have no energy to do anything but a lot of sleeping.
    although I do know I have some stress in my life that could be upsetting my energy levels.

    Could it be changing season?

    That could be a possibility. It's cooled down considerably and I'm able to sleep more comfortably. I was getting cranky in the heat ...lol

    Iron? Try a multi-vit with iron and see if that makes a difference.

    Just a general multi-vitamin is always a good idea. Try to get in a short nap mid-day if you can. I won't mention the "maybe it's simply aging" thing, since you mentioned having little ones at home...lol. I hope your energy level is back to normal soon [​IMG]. If not, don't put off a physical from your doctor (including blood work). Could be a vit./mineral deficiency.

    Calcium.

    That helps me get sleep.

    Oh yes. I always forget I am a little anemic and have very low iron levels. My Dr. told me about it about 5 years ago. When I was preggo the docs were super worried about it and put me on iron supplement.
    I just like to pretend that I dont need any kind of pills to live.

    I dont even like to take advil when I have a headache or growing pain.



    I just wonder why it affects me sometimes more than others...

    Are you pregnant? It's in the BYC water.
