I’m not sure if it’s the time change or the new meds or the weekend or the fact that Emma’s cutting eye teeth and sleeping terribly or a combination of all of the above, but sweet Jesus, I’m tired. All the time.
I’ll just be sitting here and then I’ll notice that my body feels warm and my eyes are heavy and my lids are closing. It’ll be something like 2 in the afternoon.
You know, not a normal time to be tired.
I can’t seem to figure this out. I also can’t seem to get enough sleep to 1) combat this feeling or 2) feel rested.
I spend the day with a little fog in the corners of my brain and feel like something’s missing but I don’t know just what that something might be.
Did I forget to take the dog out? Did I flip the laundry? Have I dropped a child off at school on a day when there is no school? Did I think there was no school and keep them here when they should be there?
I’m so tired I’d probably forget my own head if it weren’t attached.
All I want for Christmas is a full night’s sleep.

Anti-depressants make me horribly sleepy and it took me a long time to figure it out. The best solution I found is to take them at bed time. I was still tired, but that helped.

Yeah, I take it at night for that reason. The first doctor to prescribe them advised me about their sleepy side-effects. I have no doubt that a great deal of this being overwhelmingly tired is because of the medication.
