I’m Exhausted & Here’s Why …

It’s funny isn’t it; how us millennials seem to always been complaining about something. That we’re exhausted, we want to travel but can’t afford it & that buying a house is only something we can dream of. But in reality things are different & we have every right to complain about certain things. I’m just as bad when it comes to complaining. I’m exhausted & I’m not afraid to tell the world (& annoy everyone in the process)

I moan all the time that I’m tired & y’no what I’m not lying. It’s not a shallow comment because I didn’t go to bed at a decent time the night before. Heck I could go to bed at 8pm, sleep through till 8am & still be utterly shattered. There’s not enough sleep to suffice the never ending emotional cycle I’m on. My body is exhausted & that’s my reality.

I wanted to make 2018 the year I stopped whinging about being tired & for a minute there I thought I’d cracked it. My lovely moment of illness over the Christmas holidays did leave me feeling refreshed. A little overslept maybe but I’d finally caught up on all that missed sleep. Turns out I just didn’t have the energy to think or do pretty much anything to actually exhaust myself.

Flash forward to the second week of January; I’m back to full health (kinda) & I’m back to the daily grind of life. Well that also means all my disorder has free rein to do it’s thing & drain every ounce of energy I had regained.

Time to skip to mid February & that illness is still lingering (loving the migraines.. not), I’m back into my work routine & I’m blogging my socks off to get ahead. That moment of bliss that catching up on sleep gave me has long gone & I’m back to the usual moaning & groaning.

I’m tired; I can’t deny that. The emotional rollercoaster my mind feels the need to buy a ticket for on a daily basis is dragging me down & no amount of sleep is refreshing me. Let’s add the new anxieties that have reared their ugly head to the mix & well my brains having a party over here.

I spent a long time getting to know myself & learning how to cope with my disorder. I had it all mapped out. I knew what made me tick & how to destress in moments of panic. Not gonna lie I knew how to enjoy the ride & let it play itself out. But now I have this weird little thing about crowds & well I don’t know what to do about that.

Here’s sits a girl who never really understood the whole social anxiety thing. I was lucky to never have to worry about that. However now it’s something that is affecting me too & I really don’t know what to do about it. Anxiety isn’t something I know about or something I have learned to cope with.

All I know is it’s making me even more tired & I’ve had enough. Time to check myself into the doctors & ask for help. I’m not taking this lying down & my brain is not going to lead me down another crappy path. Not today Satan.

    I’m glad you’re going to speak about this, it must be very frustrating to feel tired no matter how much you sleep. I think as a society, we can be too tough on ourselves and not get help soon enough, hopefully you’ll be feeling better soon x

    Many people dont get just how much mental and emotional issues and affect our physical lives. Anxiety is physically and mentally exhausting. Thank you for sharing!
