I've been completely exhausted for the past week or two. Its not just sleepy-tired, though that's part of it---I'm waking up in the middle of the night a lot more than usual and having trouble falling back asleep (I think its the heat). Its just a complete physical exhaustion, like I can barely move after about 3 pm most days. G has been carrying most of the load of dinnertime because I just can't.

I've been getting up later in the morning. I do my workout/run but I am dragging myself through even the "easy" workouts and I'm running slower/stopping more than I have in a while. If I can motivate to take the kids to the park(I haven't in a week or so), I just sit there, instead of playing with them. We were going to bike to the park on my birthday for a picnic but we drove because I couldn't imagine biking for an hour.

I hate this! I'm not the most energetic at baseline, but this is untenable. There are things I want to do! I want to make sourdough and declutter the living room, and change out my clothes for the season.

I'm not sure what is going on. I can't be "coming down with something" because I have not encountered another human in weeks, and I have no other symptoms. Too much drinking, carb-y foods, increased P@xil (well, this is definitely part of it), running more?

Really hope it lifts soon.


  1. My guess is your new job responsibilities are causing this. Mental exhaustion is real. It's also super humid today, and frankly kind of gross outside. Not energy bestowing weather by any means. It's a sucky feeling, but I am confident you'll be feeling more yourself soon. Hang in there!

  2. maybe iron/b12? A few times I have felt very drag-y and bounced back with supplementation. Where I am we have pretty dark winters and so vitamin D can also be an issue, though I doubt it would be the only explanation for fatigue! Hope you feel better soon.

  3. I'll second the mental exhaustion. A friend of mine, also an academic, said that it feels like hauling logs all day. That seems apt.

  4. I second the vitamins' suggestion. Would suggest getting your blood work done, as it also sounds like hypothyroidism to me ( it manifested like that for my mom, for instance)
