  • I really struggle with fatigue, as well as tiredness, acknowledging they are two different things. I realized they were different things about a year ago when I got the Glow app for my phone – I’m nearing menopausal age and wanted to start tracking my cycles to get a sense of how long/short they were so I could pay attention to avoid scheduling things at times when I know I won’t have energy for them. In this app, they have lists of physical symptoms, where fatigue is listed, whereas “tired” is listed under mood/emotional (honestly I don’t know who makes this stuff up). With another app I have been tracking my sleep, thinking that my tiredness and fatigue could be remedied if only I got enough sleep, but despite my best efforts of getting a reasonable amount of sleep (8 hours for me), I still feel tired and fatigued all day every day.

    And yes, to Gail’s post above, absolutely – I have laid down to sleep or nap and then, sure enough, my mind won’t shut off or my muscles will feel restless and sleep evades me. It’s so annoying how we can be tired and/or fatigued all day and then when it finally comes time to go to bed or take a nap, the body says nope.

    I don’t push myself to exhaustion as much as I used to. I have been hopeful that by the exercise I am doing that my energy levels would improve ┬ábut alas, there has been no change. I still have to give myself a big pep talk before putting on my running shoes, “ok let’s do this, I’ll feel much better after for having done it”. In fact, because of the intensity of my workouts I find I have even less energy. It makes me wonder, what is wrong with me?

    What signals fatigue for me is that everything feels like I’m walking through a fog. I feel like if I were to curl up on comfy furniture that I would probably fall asleep (though that seldom happens). Mostly I push through because I have to, work must be done. I’ve noticed lately though that I don’t have time to keep my house as clean as I would like – a combination of being really busy with school/work but also just not having energy to do everything and something must give.

    I would love to know what it would take to improve my energy levels. I would like to know what it’s like to not feel #tiredallthetime. Do I need to spend more time outside? Move to a place that has more natural light and brighter walls/floors? Change my diet to a more plant-based, whole-foods, raw diet? All of these things? I would love to stop clicking #fatigue on my Glow app.
