Why am I so tired!?!?
At the moment, I seem to be permanently tired, seriously! My change in medication dosage means I do sleep through the night now, but I struggle to get to sleep in the first place. I try each day to then be up by 10 am, in the hope I will not make the situation worse. It's like I'm not quite on UK time.
Most days a nap or at least a lie down feels essential, like mid afternoon my body just runs out of energy and I need to recuperate. I think I need to get back into going to the pool, that should help, but I've been avoiding it due to tiredness. A vicious circle. Thankfully I've not gained the weight I lost, so I can reboot and carry on.
I feel like it's a battle, napping to feel better probably contributes to the delay in getting to sleep at night. Then I feel lazy and like I should do better, guilt is a problem. But I just need to remind myself I'm only at two weeks on this dose of meds and I'm recovering which is a battle in itself.
I'll try getting exercise back in my days this week and let you know how I get on, maybe that's the solution.
- Do you nap?
- Or suffer from insomnia?
- Are you then left feeling lazy or guilty?
I want to hear from you, so let me know.
