Fatigue and Depression

Posted on March 12, 2018

Chronic fatigue as a state of being tired—not sleepy, but physically drained, can feel overpowering for those dealing with depression. Managing how to cope with fatigue is best done alongside others who understand what you are going through.

On MyDepressionTeam, the social network and online support group for those living with depression, members talk about a range of personal experiences and struggles. Fatigue is one of the top 10 topics most discussed.

Here are a few question-and-answer threads about fatigue:

Extreme fatigue, grogginess, difficulty focusing. Depression symptom or medication side effect?

I've been feeling so exhausted. Does anyone else feel this way?

Does any of you experience chronic fatigue that makes it hard to have enough energy to function properly an do things you once could?

Here are some conversations about fatigue:

I have only started my meds today, I'm so exhausted I'm crying.

I am so tired, all the time! My brain is foggy, too. Does anyone ever feel like this?
