I have been really really tired a lot recently and I am not 100% sure where it is coming from. It doesn’t even matter how much sleep I get, I am just always tired. Is this normal? What should I do about this?

      Idk if this is helpful but I'm 99% of the time a sleepy person because of my conditions. But when I'm on a hypo/manic cycle, I tend to get no sleep but that's like 1% of the time. The only thing that helps me when I'm super sleepy is exercising during the day.

      Talk to your doctor about it because I am always tired and it’s because of my bipolar mania 1

      My meds make me tired. I keep getting fired for it.

        @Amos_P There are protections. I recommend registering with your job’s disability office if possible.

        @Hong Thing is, I rarely hit manic episodes. It’s like a once a year thing from what my psychiatrist and I discussed. So my hypo cycles usually always there. But I know when I hit a hypo cycle, but as of right now, I haven’t really been at all depressed. I feel like my usual self and just have chronic insomnia and narcolepsy.

          @ParanoiaK I feel that. I actually completely align with what you're saying except that I don't have narcolepsy. My "norm" is also hypomania and I rarely have manic episodes. When I said depressed, I really mean what I call mildly depressed which only entails being super sleepy and kinda mildly low.
