Report This Post (To report rule violations to admin) I Never Feel Rested in Related Issues & Disorders Posted July 5, 2008 I am always exhausted. Always. I rarely feel "rested" - it doesn't matter if I get 3 hours of sleep or 13 hours, I feel exhausted. I almost always want to sleep, and when I do get up I don't want to get up becuase I am so tired. Ofcourse, I do get up because I have to, but that only leads to the perpetual cycle of exhaustion. I feel like I am almost always running on empty. Also, being that I have Hashimotos and also have ADD and other general anxiety tendencies, I have to "feel" like sleeping, in order to go to sleep (which is so not condusive to feeling well rested!) And, with my energy levels being virtually nil because I feel cruddy all of the time, if I get a burst of energy at 1am, I'll take it when I can get it (also, not condusive to feeling well rested.) Sleeping isn't always my problem, sleeping well - is ! I know this only adds fuel to the fire. Anyone relate?
