I'm tired

I would have thought that after an almost 3 hour sleep this morning, I'd not be feeling so tired. But in fact, I almost fell asleep again this evening while Mr E. cooked dinner. And this has me a little worried. I'm taking a lot of medications at the moment to help with the head. Are they what's making me so tired, is it the having the headache / migraine or is it something else?

I hate being this tired but most of all I hate my intolerance of the little things. I've felt this way before. Like I want to go to bed, pull the covers over my head and wake up in a month or maybe even next year.

Why am I feeling this way? I've just had a great, albeit, tiring holiday with the family. I have pretty good kids, a decent, flexible job and a husband who cooks dinner when I'm really tired. Oh, he loves me, too. Can't beat that, really.

Why do I feel that the world is going to cave in? Is it the fact that despite taking the 24 hour med, the 12 hour med and panadeine forte that my head is still aching? Is it that school holidays are about to start and I will have to juggle work with the family's needs? Is it that the events previously labelled 'unlikely to be psychosis' have occurred again and seem to stronger than before?

Maybe it one or more of those things. Maybe it's just that I'm a glass half empty kind of girl. Whatever it is, I hope it goes away soon. After all, my life is pretty good most of the time.

Sorry you're having a hard time. Hope you feel better soon! As my mother would say, "Chin up, Butter Cup!" :)

This headache will be cured, if I have to go to uni and become a Dr in something and do it my God damn self!
The events 'unlikely to be delusions' are quite likely exasperated by stress- the family has just had a big holiday and is trying to settle back into routine, and the important thing is they are being talked about, which means they can be monitored and appropriate action taken as required.
Oh and have a coffee, that cup is supposed to be half empty- well if it's a good one anyway!

Oh my goodness. You still have the headaches?! Holy shit. Do you want the details of my neuro physio just for a chat? Not sure it will help ... but maybe??

Sounds like you've got a helluva lot going on - no wonder you're tired - your body just wants to sleep to get away from the pain. Keep persisting until they find out what's wrong with you. I wish I could offer more help, but I can offer support xx
