Drained

Mar 25, 2015 11:57 AM

I'm absolutely exhausted today. The sun is out right now but the rest of the week is going to rain. I didn't sleep well, but that's normal. I just feel very wiped out and sleepy. I guess I'll just have to go with it and rest. Hope the rest of you have a peaceful day.

I'm really wiped out too. I think we all just need to rest now. I did an exam Wednesday and Thursday last week and today, I finish it tomorrow, I'm so tired. I've heard of new transdermal patches for energy with either vitamin s and minerals or vitamins, minerals and caffeine

Geez, and I thought it was just me. I had an appt this morning and was gone 3 hr. Now I'm fighting sleep. Im afraid if I nap this late I won't sleep tonight. And I have another appt tomorrow.

I've been feeling more exhausted every afternoon since about 2-3 weeks ago. I get very tired after going anywhere. And yes, drained is the right description. Hope everyone rests well today & tonight.

No, it's definitely not just you, FlappsyLady... It's pretty much all of us right now. I find that if I have to go out and run errands or to go to the doctor's office or any number of things, I come home and not only is my pain level elevated because I've skipped a dose of meds, but I feel like I got hit by a bus and find it very difficult, if not sometimes impossible to keep my eyes open. I try to fight it because most of the time if I get a nap in the afternoon, then it effects my night sleep (Or Lack Thereof). There just has to be a better way!!!

I had a weird episode the other day. Was in pain and tired like usual at home. Next thing I know I am waking up. Didn't feel like I was going to sleep and it was just late afternoon but I was out for almost an hour. Missed a call from my wife, which means I was really out cause my phone always wakes me. It kinda scared me.

Jay that happened to me the other day. I was tired but never felt myself drifting off. When I woke up, it was light and I thought that it was the ne t day until I checked my phone and realized three hours had passed!!! That was the best sleep I've gotten in a long time. Wish I could sleep like that at night.

Today it seems like everyone is feeling drained and I am as well I wonder what makes us feel so drained is it just the pain or the daily struggle of dealing with pain

Tiernanangel05, I think both contribute to it. For me, I'm so tired all day because I either slept with painful interruptions, having to turn over or adjust something (pillows, covers, etc), or I couldn't sleep at all because of the pain. Then I get up and drag through the day. It's a vicious cycle. 🙏🌼

Hi everyone I have been doing the same way, if I have to go out to the Drs,or paying bills I am so tired and my pain levels are up.I have to lay down usually fall asleep reading I don't realize that I going too when I wake up I've been asleep for 1-2 hrs.
