I’m tired

I wake up, I’m tired

I can have good undisturbed sleep and still wake up feeling tired. It makes no difference if I go to bed early or late, get up with the birds or have a lay in. I’m still tired.

I rest, I’m tired

I can have a lazy day, not leaving my flat at all, and I’m still tired. I can take naps or avoid them, I’m still tired.

I train, I’m tired

Excersise energises me for a short period of time. Once the endorphins (Endorphins are chemicals produced by the body to relieve stress and pain. They work similarly to a class of drugs called opioids. Opioids relieve pain and can produce a feeling of euphoria) have worn off, I’m tired.

I eat well, I’m tired

I can eat clean all day, flooding my body with nutrients and vitamins, and still feel tired. I’m currently vegetarian and take the necessary supplements to support this, I’m still tired. It makes no difference if my diet is clean or dirty, I’m always tired.

Medication, I’m tired

I have hypothyroidism and pernicious anemia. Both can me me tired. I take medication for both. The medication seems to make no difference, I’m still tired.

Hydration, I’m tired

I make sure I drink plenty of water during the day. More so when I train and take creatine. Yet again, I’m still tired.

Caffeine, I’m tired

I can drink a gallon of black coffee, or cut it out altogether, I’m still tired. Even energy drinks have little if any affect.

So, why?

Why am I always tired? What can I do?
