No, no, no. Not THAT F word. Although, sometimes I’m dropping that F bomb way too much.
The other F word. AKA: FATIGUE.
Fatigue, exhaustion, lethargy, burnout….whatever word you would like to call it I’ve had it in spades. It is debilitating to say the least. Went to the Doctor, he ran all kinds of blood work and, as is normal for me, found absolutely nothing wrong. Has no idea why I’m so freaking tired All. The. Time. I’ve been dealing with this for well over 6 months. I’m so tired of being tired.
I just keep pushing through doing what must done, but when I have some down time I’m usually taking a nap. It’s pathetic. I hate it. Some friends thought I should go on antidepressants because it gives them energy. Let me just go on record saying that I think antidepressants are way over prescribed in this country. I believe that some people truly need them, but I think Doctors are using them to cover the symptom and not find the cause.
Something has to change. I’m entering the busiest time of year for my business and I don’t have time to be tired. If anyone has any thought or ideas on a natural way to boost my energy levels please let me know. I’d love to know what you do to keep your energy levels up.
