Ugh...... too tired to be a mom

I don't understand ...... as we age we have less energy than we used to, but become more mature so that we are capable of raising kids .... but then we're too damn tired to because they have SO MUCH MORE ENERGY than us. 

Sorry, just a random rant. I just feel like mother nature is a little confused. I'm not even that old, just in my late 20s and I just feel too tired to give my daughter the care she deserves because she's a bundle of energy and my candle is burning out.

I'll be 30 in July and as long as I get enough sleep, my energy level is fine. I'm a mom of 4.

Not depressed, although I was a while back. But I do have hypothyroidism .... I had my dr check is last month and they said my numbers are fine.

Yeah ....... I'm prone to take in way toooo much caffeine so I've cut back some. It was getting to where it just made me feel like I was having a heart attack and falling asleep at the same time.

Oh I feel your pain!  

Edit: I'm always tired and I've had everything checked.  I wish it was something that could be diagnosed so I could take a pill and feel better lol.
