So tired

Seriously. All the time. No matter how much sleep I get. I just feel exhausted, and it's that achy exhausted too.

I spoke with my therapist about it, she says it's the depression and that I have to force myself to do things. But it's so hard. I just feel so awful, my body doesn't want to function, all it wants to do is go to sleep.

It's kind of freaking me out a bit. I've always been depressed and felt tired, but not like this. I've never slept like I have been lately (9+ hours a night and sometimes an afternoon nap of 2 hours). I usually have problems sleeping. I usually sleep 3-5 hours a night. That's how I've been my entire life.

Maybe it's the meds, I really don't think so. Maybe I've discovered one of their unknown side effects, lol.

I just wish I had some energy. The meds are working a bit, I'm have bouts where I feel better a few times a day. But I'm just so exhausted that I can't take advantage of them.

Blech.

I feel your pain, sister. I wonder sometimes if out therapists REALLY KNOW how we feel when they tell us that we just have to do things. I can sleep 15+ hours a day (usually +). I just don't have the energy to get up and do things. Eventually I come out of the funk though.... Keep your chin up. :o)

Hi Jen,sometimes depression can come when you are going through a spiritual/internal change. If that feels like you, I suggest you google "spiritual depression". You'll find all sorts of viewpoints there, and some may be helpful.

If that's not your cuppa tea, that's ok : )

Take care,
Carol.
