I am leery of seeing a doctor to explain these odd conditions (no, I’m not pregnant!), but I seriously don’t know what to do. Here’s what’s been going on:
- For weeks, I’ve been tired. During the week, I get 6.5 – 8 hours of sleep each night (I know I should be at 8-9, but it’s just impossible a lot of the time), but I catch up on the weekends (usually 10-12 each night). However, I am ALWAYS tired. For example, I slept from 10pm-9:30am on Friday night & 2:30am (don’t ask) – 9:30am on Saturday night, then fell asleep on Sunday night at 9pm, slept until 6am, and was still tired. In three nights, that’s 27.5 hours of sleep (well at the correct 24 – 27 hours I should be getting), but I was still exhausted this morning. Exhausted like could barely get out of bed, tired.
- The little things have been grating on me extra hard recently. I’ve been out of sorts with people, easily annoyed, and feeling overburdened.
- Food hasn’t been tasting very good to me. I’ve been eating regularly, but nothing seems to spark my fancy. Food I previously enjoyed now tastes just passable & everything is unexciting.
- I haven’t felt happy. I almost always feel happy. I don’t feel sad exactly, just not happy.
It’s been a few weeks now, and I just assumed it’d get better (maybe it was allergies or catching up on sleep or a touch of the flu), but it hasn’t. I’m having difficulty juggling the different parts of my life when I can barely make myself get out of bed & do my work. What’s going on!?
