Snookie is infamous around these parts
Default Very very very very tired all the time

I am always so tired I feel like I am barely present in my own life sometimes. My memory is appalling. I have never been able to take Ava to any baby massage classes, rhymetime etc because I am too drained. I am losing friends because unless they come to see me I just haven't the energy to meet them. If they do come to see me and stay more than a couple of hours I get so exhausted it is a struggle not to get crabby with them! I go to bed at around 10pm every night and I make sure the sink is shiny and I shower at night to make mornings easier. I really have to force myself to get things done through the sleepy fog. OH will watch dd sometimes on his days off so I can get extra sleep but that doesn't help. I have always been a sleepy person and would struggle with the afternoon slump at work but it is getting ridiculous. I get about 8 broken hours of sleep a night.

I'd love to hear any thoughts, suggestions, anything?

I'm like this too hun and I was/am a sleepy person too, as a baby I used to sleep from about 6/7 at night though till 10am, mum used to have to poke me to see I was still breathing No ideas/suggestions other than blood tests like Susie said, i have just done this myself as the tiredness was really getting to me too. Hope you feel a bit more perky soon

Will go get some blood tests done....honestly I'd be happy to find out I had an underactive thyroid or anaemia!

Are you feeling any better Claire?

Not much atm, but probably due to stress and lack of sleep, go get some tests done to put your mind at ease xx

I will do, I sometimes think I'll look back on my life and feel like I spent it just chasing sleep!

((hugs)), i too feel tired all the time. I've had the thyroid checks and they all came back normal. i'm waiting for an appointment with endocrine dept to see if they can find anything. It doesnt help when this weather is dull and dreary - its enough to wear anyone down. no one has any motivation to do anything. i honestly dont know the last time i saw sunshine. wonder how many of us could be suffering from SAD hope you feel better soon x
