I hate feeling so tired with no energy at all. I could close my eyes and take a nap so easy, so I keep getting up and down and doing small things to stay awake. The day started good and I actually got 7 hours of sleep! Got up cleaned, did dishes and laundry all before 11 am. Seeing I got up at 9 am I did good! While Tessa was doing her 1 hour for the week with the Math teacher, I cleaned the computer room and went thru the stuff we did buy her for Christmas and made a list of the few things I still need to get. Gave her, her spelling test and then WHAM I just got so tired. We are doing work now, well she is reading and doing it while I'm sitting here waiting to go on to the next part. However having a hard time as I said I'm tired!! Need a magic wake-up pill or something!

I slept past 1am last night and woke up at 6am. I know I needed more sleep but I can't sleep anymore. I don't take naps and today we are going to be busy since family from New Jersey are finally arriving.

I know I don't get enough sleep too, I think a lot of mine is stress but haven't figured out how to relieve it yet. Maybe one day. Hope you have a good time with the family.

Not to the extent that you keep nodding off and have to get up every few minutes to stay awake. At least I don't think it is.

I nod off when my body just can't take it anymore. When I wake I am a little more refreshed. This mostly happens when I haven't slept well the night before. Coffee keeps me going, but at a cost to my stomach.

@Ithink try a cup of tea. I have that when my stomach can't tolerate coffee.

I had this problem for a while. It was caused from stress and depression. I drink herbal teas (chai tea, green tea, and black tea usually) and eat dark chocolate now to combat the stress. I utilize Buddhist teachings into my everyday life. It can be practiced with Christianism without messing with any of their beliefs because it is the teachings Jesus and his brother actually taught and Buddhists don't really worship anyone or anything. Buddhist don't believe or disbelieve in a supreme entity. They just exist to better themselves and their world around them by self-improvement. A healthy and more fulfilled life starts with a healthy practice of eating as well as way of life. I hope this helps.

I already do herbal teas and such, always have. Starting to think my severe anemia is back. I do think stress and just dealing with sitting so much is part of the problem for me too. I have to figure something else but so dont want major surgery but might have to. Tired of feeling like this. Thanks for the ideas, going to look into the teachings.

I think that happens to most of us, and it is so hard to know why we feel so exhausted. Usually the tiredness lifts in the evening.
