how do I deal with constant exhaustion that doesn't go away even with a good sleep schedule. and a mother that tells me it's probably because I don't go outside enough? it's causing me to sleep in most or all my classes, not eat lunch and do poorly in certain classes. not to mention I ended up being late to all of my classes because of how tired I am.

      I'm not saying this 100% may be the case but I had this issue too. It could possibly be an iron deficiency. Im not diagnosing but I remember when I was tired all the time and I didn't even know. I was doing everything I could. Without enough oxygen in your blood, you may feel tired, weak, and short of breath. You get iron deficiency anemia when your body is low in iron. You need iron to make hemoglobin, a protein that helps your red blood cells carry oxygen. They do have over the counter meds that you can take and personally they helped me but if you want you can get your blood tested before you try that.

      Yet another possibility could be narcolepsy. If you're falling asleep in classes all the time, and falling asleep other places too, it could be. Definitely something to talk to your doctor about

      I recently got diagnosed with sleep apnea and found out that’s why I am so tired all the time. I was falling asleep at work and couldn’t get through the day without a nap no matter how long I slept at night. A blood test is also a good idea to rule out any thyroid disorders but a second step could be a sleep test

      I'm just saying this was my case I really didn't know for the longest time and when I heard that it caused you to be tired it made so much sense.
