No matter how much sleep i get...

I'm still exhausted! I know my iron is low but this is getting silly.

Hubs is convinced I'm pregnant again but I'm not...I just got my period.

  • Have you talked to your dr? I have that same problem. I went to the dr and told him how tired I was, he ran a ton of tests and it turns out I have an autoimmune disease - sjogrens syndrome. There's really no cure for it, and not any medication to help, but at least I know I'm not being lazy!

  • I feel the same. Sometimes you just have to give in and have yourself a five minute power nap.

  • Do you exercise? I know that sounds crazy when you are so tired but something happens when you get your blood pumping. Sooo when you feel wiped out, put on some sneakers and take a brisk walk around the block or do some stretching of your entire body. Bring a bottle of water too. I bet you may feel more energized and it will help you get more restful sleep at night. Try things like reducing soda's coffee and sugar and drink more water. Find a good multi-vitamin and take it daily.

  • I'm always feel exhausted. But I know I don't eat right, get anywhere close to a good nights sleep, work full time outside the home, raising 2 children, and taking care of my disabled husband. Yeah, I'm exhausted.

  • I just self-diagnosed myself with Sjorgen's syndrome now, lol.

    I do exercise. I don't go out for walks but I have an exercise ball that I use because I'm trying to get back into shape. I usually do about two half hour workouts, and then I bounce on it a lot when I'm watching tv after DS goes to bed.

    For the most part I eat fairly healthy and while my son is energetic, he's typically easy to deal with.

    Guess I'm just gettin' older!
