I’m tired

Postby living_the_phoenix » Mon Jan 06, 2020 1:35 pm

The chronic nature of this stupid disorder may be less a trial then the will to maintain treatment. I’m tired of being this someone else, this person void of the joy that defines my favourite memories. I’m tired of the slog of forward momentum, getting through another day, then another. Believing that the dreams of others will bring me peace. I’m tired of that pain in my soul that is a true battle between life and death, where life is the numb side effect and death is void. I think I’m over complicating my life...or is it the way it has to be? I’m tired. How do you stop being so tired?

On difficult days, I’ve felt tired too.

Meds can and do affect our mood, our energy level. Environmental situations sometimes are toxic for us. I’ve had all these things affect me at different times in my life. Can you give an example of a situation in which you feel this way? And the manner it has you viewing life this way you explain in your post. This illness is not easy, and that is an understatement. (sometimes throughout our lives; to me it has felt/been this way).

How are you feeling these days?

I have Bipolar I and ADD as well. Just sharing that which we have in common.

Bipolar I
ADD (not the hyperactive kind)
*I take loads of meds, but they keep me stable :D
