      Personally I sleep when I can even if it's not a "normal" schedule. And when I'm awake enough and physically able I'll do what I can. Even if it's just showering and eating it's a win 😊

      Can definitely relate... Chronic pain, fatigue and a heart condition here, among other issues. I'm unable to work and I receive disability benefits. Very fortunate that I have an understanding partner who helps when needed. I basically only have energy for a couple light chores at most and then I exercise when I'm able. I also take naps when needed. But I realize not everyone has these options.

      Have you spoken to a doctor about this? It could be an indication of a chronic illness? I find it difficult to get anything done, it's a constant struggle and it's exhausting but knowing why I feel that way does help me manage it. If you haven't been diagnosed with anything my advice is to keep a list of things that you think are 'odd' for you or just feel off and go to the doctors if you can.

          @lcplbubles I am so sorry to hear that. If you are already in the process of getting seen by a specialist then I don't think I can recommend anything else unfortunately. I would still say to keep the list! I really hope that you get answers soon

      Frankly, I barely get anything done. I don’t have much advice, there. But I know how terrible it is to be physically exhausted all the time. I might suggest blood work to catch any abnormalities in your blood chemistry (anemia, abnormally shaped/sized cells, etc.). Or to see if perhaps you may have Sleep Apnea, which often makes people tired in the day because it hurts your sleep quality. I’m sorry that doesn’t help much. I also wanted to say I think it’s pretty inappropriate for someone to claim that it’s “just anxiety.”

        @tigershark98 thanks I would know if it was just anxiety but it's not

      That’s just anxiety sweetheart I changed my eating habits and started doing a lot of fruit and vegetables smoothies with ginger in it and drinking plenty of water I promise you will see a difference

        @Nitapooh I wish it was just anxiety I use to be able to do so much more even In the worst of situations
