  • i am 49, a widowed SAHM ,raising 2 special need grandsons, i get about 5 hours of sleep at nite, i get to bed around 11:30 pm and up around 5 or 6. am to get boys off to school. i wake up feeling good, but after putting boys on bus and doing a few chores, the past year i find myself so tired,, so i nap for a few hours. which is totally unususal for me ,as i was used to going on 4 hours of sleep a nite for the last 27 yrs as i always worked niteshift, and never felt the need for more sleep.

    but i think its because i suffered a ruptured vertebra artery pseudoaneurysm and partially collapsed lung from blood going into chest july 20th 2009 that required me being given 4 units of blood.and a 8 day hospital stay in trauma unit.
    i thought though being its been 15 months i would of regained my strength.

  • I am a 30 yr old (gah I hate being that old)... SAHM of three... I go to bed at about 10:30-11:00pm and get up at 5am.

    At about 4pm I run down and if I can I nap for about an hour or as long as the kids let me... ;) I find myself feeling fatigued all the time but my nerves are crap so I think that's why I feel so drained..

  • I am 28 yrs old. I get up at 5:30 am to get both my kids ready for school. I am pregnant so before I get my son from school I take a cat nap around 12pm. When I finally get to bed It's around 9 pm.
