    When ever I get home, I feel tired and like doing nothing. Its only 6:30 and I feel like going to bed. Even just sitting here on the computer feels like a drain. Its not just once in a while either, its like 3-4 times a week and I dont even have a job I just go to school and thats it. I sleep like a baby too.

    when you feel like that, do some jumping jacks, or drop and do pushups, crunches - something to get the blood flowing - sounds a bit :broly: but it really works :)

    Wow are you keeping track or something. I did not say I was emotionly tired or anything. I am just tired in general. It feels like I just got off a 12 hour shift when I get home half the time. I feel drossy, thats the best word for it and no I am not taking anything.

    Being drossy.. No, its not. Being emotionly tired is differnt from being drained. If I was emotionly tired I would be posting something like "Oo, I am so tired of life, its such a drain, when will it end" lol, I dont have depression.

    Yes, it is. Being emotionally strained can make you physically tired, and as a result you need to sleep more.

    Not saying you're depressed, just splitting hairs. :)

    How many hours a night do you sleep? If you sleep too many, it can make you tired for the rest of the day, and you want to sleep more and more.

    do you exercise at all? if you don't this is probably the reason why....


    i find it funny how everyone here tries to pin everything on depression. try exercise, it should help./

    I sleep 8-9 in a good bed. Nah I dont exercise but I need to. I feel alright at school until about 2, then the day starts to drag and I get tired. Then I get home and I am just drained.
     
  11. I do believe your "tired" feeling is connected to the burdens we discussed. It is likely a symptom of unmanaged tension and stress [which if left unchecked will develop into clinical depression based on what I've observed in the words of our conversation]. The body only has so much energy available to it in a given span of time. Your energy is being used not only meeting daily responsibilities in school, as well as outside of class - but also inside your mind on conflicts you've been unable to reconcile on your own. To resolve this conflict I recommend the same course of action as I did yesterday.

    I can occasionally listen to you, but ultimately I am powerless in all manners to solve the issue until you choose to handle the situation as I've indicated, or as a specialist defines.

    I thought clinical depression was something you are born with. Because its brain chemicals, how can you offset chemcials buy not dealing with stress?
     
  13. No, the complex causes of Clinical depression aren't exclusive to genetics alone. Clinical depression isn't necessarily more severe in intensity than depression. The difference between Depression and Clinical Depression is all in the name. One is clinically defined because it takes place over a longer span of time [2 weeks or longer consistently] than regular depression which may happen on and off for a few days.

    The body and mind are not separate entities. They are one whole system interacting directly with each other through a number of biological pathways. What happens to the body, happens to the mind, and what happens to the mind, happens to the body - though the degree of cause and effect and pathology for one or the other depends on the problem that leads to disorder or illness. If stress affects the mind, the body is affected by various pathways. If the stress becomes distress, or is not managed or resolved - it can lead to a chronic state in which the body actually breaks down, or weakens in multiple ways. This may show up initially as "tired" or weakness, strange moods, or it can evolve into a state where the body deals with constant infection from low immunity, or the mind experiences irritability, depression or even more severe ailments depending on how long the chronic state has been going on, and how the bodies been able to cope with it.

    I think all of the time is an overstatement. I dont seem to get tired until around 2, everyday. Reguardless if I goto school or not.

    You are thinking that since you don't do anything besides school, you shouldnt be tired. But not doing anything exactly the reason you are feeling this way. You are just bored, go out for a sports team or something at school or run or do something physical. I know because thats what ive had the same problem.

    I was like that too, mind you I was 23-24 at that time and I only had a sitting job from 9 to 5 :ugh2: (with a 10 minutes commute) :ugh:

    I solved this with exercise, I started swimming again and good enough I felt ten times better after swimming than in the whole day :)

    You should try at least a fast walk, 5-10 minutes.:)

    Oh my lord if someone else blames that on depression. Its called probable lack of exercise and eating habits. The south beach diet has a lot of good guidelines you should use. Im not saying go on it, but the stuff you eat on there is great for energy, contrary to popular belief. U need complex carbs i.e. nuts, beans, whole grains, fruits, veggies etc... Stop eating crap for food, and exercise at least 30 mins every day, and I guarantee you will feel good my man.
     
  21. I'm not saying it's depression, but mental health is definitely involved. I can say that because I know the context of his symptoms [He's posted here enough times to get a pattern] and his past history.

    I'm tired 24/7. I sleep 14 hours every night, and sometimes I take frequent naps during the day. It's really insane.

    AFA my mental health goes, I go to a shrink and I have schizophrenia and depression, but those are pretty much gone now.. I just love to sleep.
    I don't mean to hijack your thread but I could also use some help on this.
     
  24. There are as many ways to meditate as their are people who do it. The most common form of meditation is finding a place where you're comfortable and able to relax: And then doing deep breathing while focusing on the breath. One might count to 5 or 6 seconds while breathing in thru their nose, hold for 1 second, and then breath out slowly for another 5-6 seconds, and again holding for 1 at the bottom before the new cycle begins. Doing this for a set duration of time can help clear the mind, focus attention, and help an individual center themselves. It works well to relieve tension and stress if done consistently.
