Does Any One Ever Feel Tired And Exhausted Despite Feeling Better Psychologically?

Does Any One Ever Feel Tired And Exhausted Despite Feeling Better Psychologically?

I’ve been feeling good for several months now, but still experience fatigue on a daily basis. I have started exercising but find it just exhausts me more. I’m supposed to return to work next month for half days and I’m not sure how this fatigue is going to affect me. Anyone else have this experience?

I have been dealing with being tired and exhausted for several years now. It is the one thing that has remained constant through the years, I finally found a med that helps me maintain a steady emotional state but I am still tired even after sleeping 10 to12 hours I never feel rested. Most of the time doing a simple task as waking dishes drains me and I have to rest before doing anything else. Been working with my doctor to try other meds but so far nothing is helping.

I know that feeling well, after a life of being frantic this wretched fatigue was something I was not used to I found it frustrating and it just would not go. I would get the odd day where I would wake up full of beans, and thought the fatigue was all behind me. But alas, after a few hours I just wanted to curl up and die again.

The last few months I have felt better than I have done for the past forty years, I have no idea where the energy has come from. I did get myself a rescue dog last year, it’s my first ever dog and I have the responsibility of having to take him out at least twice a day. Whilst on walks I meet other dog walkers and often chat and then continue our walk in the woods, he has helped tremendously plus we have had an unusual lengthy hot spell here in the UK which has helped my mood no end.

The winters are always worse for me, but this past winter I had to go out to walk the dog twice a day so I was getting a few miles of walking in daily. . I am naturally a caring person so having the dog is a boon.

I often wonder how they see every day with such a positive outlook, and although most of the time I take him walking on the same route, he always greets the walk with enthusiasm and like it’s his first day everyday. We have a lot to learn from dogs !

My solution is taking breaks helps alot and barely exercise waste of energy ... take little walks and that is enough.

Yes I often feel tired, I am not feeling too bad mentally at the moment just stressed with work. I think it's the normal stress people feel without depression because I am looking forward to August when work calms down. I have suffered with depression most of my life and this feels different. My only worty is that for me extreame stress can triggr major depression. Does anyone else experience this?

I’m experiencing the same thing this last 10 days and it’s weird because in my 30 years of depression I’ve never experienced anything similar. Emotionally/psychologically I’m feeling ok and quite stable and have for a long time. But every morning lately I have been waking up exhausted and feeling half dead. Lost all interest in everything I loved, lost appetite etc. Yet feeling ok in my mind. Very strange and I’ve not met anyone else experiencing this yet...
