“But You’re Always Tired!”

Whilst I’ve generally come to the conclusion that I am unable to work full-time for the time being – and maybe never work full-time again – it’s a statement I’ve truly gotten tired of hearing.

Ha! See that? I made a terrible pun.

It’s not even the fact that I’m tired all the time – although, sometimes that really does drive me nuts.

Instead, it’s the constant comments of, “But you’re always tired.”

Yes, yes I am.

Every action takes energy – energy I don’t always have to give.

Every time I push myself in any way, it can result in things like falling asleep at Disneyland.

Which legitimately happened. Seriously.

Often, it doesn’t take much for my energy to drain – simple tasks can be exhausting for me.

When I do work, I am constantly exhausted. The art of waking up is something I haven’t yet mastered, especially on days where I haven’t naturally woken up.

I don’t need you to remind me that I’ve told you that I’m tired.

I don’t need you to remind me when you ask what I plan on doing, and my response is an earnest “sleeping”, you tell me that’s all I ever do.

If I could have a different life, I’d pick a different one.

But this is the card I’ve been dealt, and this is my life, no matter how boring it may seem to you.

    I’m so sorry you struggle with this, Carla. Sadly, I can kind of relate. Perhaps it’s due to the fact that because of my anxiety, I don’t get out much and do much – or because I’m not used to doing a lot, but when I do, I tend to get tired easily. I also think that boredom plays into it and I hate when people criticize me for being tired – something that I’m not fond of about myself.
