All,
 
The anxiety's been behaving itself well, but I have just been so tired these past couple of weeks.  I don't know if my vitamins just aren't doing it any more, or if my recent return to the joys of caffeine is having a silly kickback, or if a slight weight increase is making me apneatic and wrecking my sleep.
 
I don't think there's a genuine medical problem, as I regularly get my thyroid and sugar tested, and I've had two sleep studies, both when heavier, that came back fine.  I walk to work every day, so while I'm not in great shape, I'm also not immobile.
 
I mean, I used to come online at least twice a day, and now it's tough to summon the energy for twice a week.  And that's for things I enjoy.  When it comes to work or household chores, it's been tough to even start a task, let alone follow through.
 
Any advice or "me too"s are gladly welcome!
 
Hugs to all,
percycat

Hey Percy,

Hello my sweet cat.  This is a change for you and I would like you to check in with your Doc.

You could have a medical cause...........low hemoglobin, electrolytes off especially Potassium. I won't try to guess anymore but do get the check up, do it for us as well as  for you.

Big giant fluffy hugs.

Kitt

Percy,

sleepy kitty, I agree with the notion of getting blood work, but I also notice that when the seasons change my energy levels can go wacko. We are moving into summer over here and some day are 90° and then we have a cool change and it's down to 60° and blowing a gale. My energy and my mood can be severy affected by weather. This might factor in for you too??

A return to caffiene might also be sapping your energy if your body had adjusted to life without it. I drink caffiene now and I am like the muppet beaker..memememememee!

Hugs dear friend,

Meg

Thanks, all, for the good wishes and good advice.

I should go ahead and schedule a checkup, just in case. However, this used to happen to me a lot - just running out of steam entirely for weeks. Some of it's due to the ups and downs of my job, but I hadn't felt this way since back in the spring.

Just trying to keep plugging away at doing healthy things and making healthier choices about my diet and activites.

Love to all,
percycat

PS - Meg, I had to laugh out loud at your Beaker reference! That's exactly how he was! Just no explosions in your face on account of that caffeine, okay? :)

I think it is a good idea on your part to see a doc about this
and have a full check up and bloodwork done

Let us know how things are going Puss Puss

Percy - Do you take medication? Because if you do, it could be something with that. What's happened to me in the past is that if I have too much or too little, it makes me extremely exhausted. I'd call your doctor like everyone says and ask him/her about that and see what they say.

Hope that helps :] And hope things get better soon.

And dance with somebody tonight
Cuz I’m lonely; I feel empty inside
Can’t you make me feel alive?
