Apathy and Fatigue

I looked up fatigue on the Internet. The following are possible contributors;


Not enough sleep
Malnutrition
Vitamin deficiency
Lack of exercise
Anxiety
Grief
Mental stress
Physical stress



Fatigue symptoms include;

Weakness, lack of energy, tiredness, exhaustion




I should see a doctor if;

I have menstrual irregularities (sorry, Nanna) and sudden fatigue.





All of these apply.
(Though there were others)





There are numerous times throughout the week where I suddenly become exhausted. I have spurts where I'm fine one moment, and so very tired the next. Any tiny bit of energy exhaustion leads to me wanting to basically crash. When I wake up in the mornings, even after an adequate amount of sleep, I will feel so tired for the next 3-4 hours. This morning, for example, I woke up fairly late...ate breakfast...layed on the couch and fell back asleep for another two hours. Then I woke up, went into my room, sat on my bed, and fell asleep again. This afternoon, about an hour before church, I was cleaning my room. I sat down for a moment, and sudden extreme fatigue came over me, and I nearly crashed right there. I had to go to the couch and take an hour long nap. I've also been getting really bad headaches.


I guess I'm going to see a doctor soon.



I said all that number 1, to complain (lol) and number 2 to let you all know that fatigue apparently causes really extreme apathy. When I'm tired, I'm very apathetic towards everything. Nothing phases or concerns me. I really don't care about anything in the world. When I looked up fatigue on the Internet today, it said that apathy tends to come right along with it.

Wonderful.



This is what is going on in my life.
Isn't it great?
