Sometimes I wonder if I suffer from Chronic Fatigue Syndrome or some other ailments, I go to bet at 9pm some evenings waking up at 6am and still feel exhausted throughout the entire day. I often have to drink a half gallon of tea or more just to keep myself caffeinated enough to stay awake throughout the day. I have spent numerous hours researching the web on how to determine if I really have an issue, or this is just the consequence of having a full time job, 4 blogs and a family with two little kids.
I was researching how to cure ailments and notice that many cures for Chronic Fatigue Syndrome involve B12 injections, sleep aids, or even anti-depressants. For me however I notice that I feel worse on days where I don’t work out, I didn’t make time to work out yesterday and I tend to feel lethargic when I don’t make time to really push myself.
Nobody knows what causes Chronic Fatigue Syndrome because many different ailments can cause the same symptoms, you could be eating a poor diet, not exercising enough, be depressed, have a chemical or hormonal imbalance, not sleeping enough. These may all cause you to feel tired and fatigued, or you could just be drinking so much caffeine that when your intake decreases you are having a “down” period similar to coming off of stronger stimulants.
Either way take care of yourself and if you feel tired all the time like I do, try everything you can naturally before you resort to taking medication. Unless of course you are falling asleep while driving or operating machinery like you have narcolepsy.
