    I don't know if I have low energy levels or other people just keep pushing on while I grow tired and sleep. Just going to class leaves me wore out and on any one day I never have more then 3 classes ;however, I do have class M-F. Right after class I just want to go home and watch some TV or go to sleep. Even at 9:30 I feel like going to bed. I have this friend I keep meaning to call up about going mountain biking but I am afraid that if I make that part of my daily routine I am going to be wiped.

    I want to make a routine where I cycle in the morning but I don't think I could get up at 6am, ride at 6:30am come back at 8:00am, take another shower and then go to class. Maybe I should try going to bed at 10pm.. Now.. Yeah Im going to bed..

    You're already making excuses and you need to find solutions. Maybe get your bloodwork done for b12/iron deficiency, sleep more and see where it takes you. Do you exercise ? What's your diet like mostly ? Do you have an appetite at all ? Do you think it's useless or too demanding to see people and do stuff that you liked ?

    Good luck.

    Most ppl I know that work regular jobs go to bed anywhere between 9pm and midnight. When I was younger, 6 hours of sleep was all I needed....now I need 8+.

    You're young....experiment with time. Find something that works for you. When I was your age, I would get up and go sailing in the morning. It was seriously awesome. 6am on the lake, off by 8 and in class by 9:30. I still remember those days....it was heaven on earth.

    Also...if these are hard classes and/or boring classes, that will drain you.

    Ever take the SAT/ACT? Remember how pretty tired you felt after 4 hours of testing?

    If you're doing a good amount of work with your brain each day, it will wear you out.

    But yeah, also check your diet/sleep/exercise routine...and consider seeing a doc if it is a really big deal to you.

    For the most part I have always followed 8 hours of sleep rule but I suppose it is not enough. I usually go to bed at mid night and get up at 8am. This time I went to bed at about 10pm and got up at 8 and I don't feel like crap but that might change after class.

    I also only 200 cal's for breakfast but food make me sick in the morning.

    If you're living a relatively healthy lifestyle - reasonable amount of sleep, exercise, occasionally eating something other than junk food, then go see a doc - prolly get a full blood workup done, and maybe checked for mono. I've seen cases were the only symptoms were soreness and tiredness without any of the other classic symptoms.

    Well from everything you have told me before you work out, but maybe things have changed and you've cut down or need to try something new (the cycling I think is an excellent idea). Also, the fact that your mom in anemic in my opinion is definitely grounds for you getting some bloodwork done, because that could tell you a lot.

    If all you're doing is sitting around, of course you're going to be tired. Get your body moving and in a few weeks your energy will increase. If you feel it's a health issue, ask your doctor to check your blood for thyroid issues too.

    1. eat less junk food (start to slowly cut out the nasty shit like potato chips, soda, candy...)
    2. weightlift - go to your local gym or ymca, look in the F&N forum for routines or whatever, or PM me i can help you with a routine.
    3. cardio - 3x/4x a week for AT LEAST 30 minutes, whether itd be biking, running, jogging, walking, whatever.
    4. sleep - get at least 7-8 hours of sleep!

    anemia will drain the life out of you, no shit
    try some iron supps and see if those help

    but most of the low energy can generally be attributed to diet
    change up your diet and see how you react

    1) Don't eat junk food, a soda here and there. Maybe 1 a week...
    2)Yeah I suppose I do. I need to get some free weights.
    3)I used to cycle when I had a light load for class and I used to spend 2 hours
    4) Always have got the 7-8 hours but I feel I need 10.

    Just got out of class and I feel like going to bed.

    you might not be sleeping well. I know I don't because of mild sleep apnea (I need 10+ hours of sleep to feel rested, which I rarely get).

    I think having something to do after class that I can just leave when I want and is sort of fun would get me out of that sleepy mode right after school.

    That was just my thought - could be any number of sleep disorders. You can go to your doc and try to get a referral to a sleep specialist ...

    But definitely get back into a regular exercise routine, and keep to a regular sleep schedule helps - not sleeping in, going to bed earlier/later, taking naps, etc.

    drink water and lots of it - dehydration very quickly leads to lack of energy.
