Why am I so exhausted?

I've been so exhausted lately. Both Saturday and Sunday I slept in until 1pm, and Monday and Tuesday I had to force myself out of bed. It's so hard, and all day I feel so exhausted. I'm even going to bed early! It's really starting to bother me, especially when I can't get simple things done because I'm so exhausted. Any suggestions?

  • could you be/are you pregnant? if so its just part of pregnancy. if not, than i would have your iron checked, low iron can make you tired. so can depression. if you don't think its either of those, than i believe its vitamin B12 that is supposed to help w/energy. you could try taking that for awhile and see if that helps, if not i would call the doc and have some blood work done to make sure everythings ok
