  • It sounds like you should get your sugar checked out for diabetes. You should be able to find free diabetes testing somewhere in your area. If not in your neighborhood,check a clinic in a less fortunate neighborhood near you.

  • I agree, get your blood sugar checked. Maybe look up the rest of the symptoms of diabetes and see if they sound familiar to you. If this lethargy is all during the day and just gets worse after you eat, you could have a sleeping disorder. Good luck!
