I used to be an earlybird and get out of bed to either go for a run or go out cycling with my club. Since I have been on medication, I have been waking up much later no matter how early I go to bed! This fustrates me as I am thinking about going back into work and maybe going to college.
I wonder, will it always be like this for me? Does anyone else feel the same?!:mad:

Hi PRR,

Its incrediably frustrating when that happens ins't it. Unfortunately some medications and also types of mental health illness can effect how tired and motivated a person feels.

It seems to be the norm that once a person begins on the road to recovery and starts to make progress then motivation slowly becomes more preasant. I have to say it differs from person to person, but I am sure at some point in the future you will be able to feel less exhausted.

Take care.

yes I feel the same the need to sleep is overwhelming and its as if there is a blockage in me stopping me from doing jobs that need doing. I don't know whether its continued symtoms of depression or the medication or both but it seems to be going on a long time.

its horrible thing to have, ive had it for many years even gets to the point sometimes where i cant start or finish a conversation in work. Its so much a struggle for me to hold down a proper job for more then 8month. Chronic Fatigue was ruled out so i aint got a clue why im like this.

Jo knows me, the rest of you don't so hi.

When i was last here I don't remember there being a sleep section otherwise I would have been in it all the time.

I have posted elsewhere how my sleep continues to cause a problem. It has just got so out of control I slept for 11 hours last night and then slept all day. Since my return to work (March 10) today is the first day I have taken off. I don't think it will be the last.
