Oh my gosh, I am ALWAYS tired. Yesterday afternoon I was at my desk and my eyes were so heavy. I had to ask my boss if I could leave early for fear of falling asleep on my keyboard. Of course by the time I got kids picked up and made it home I needed to prepare dinner...so much for a nap, haha! But what stinks about it is that I know that a nap wouldn't have really helped anyway.
I've had my iron level checked and it is okay - but I also have a thyroid disease which can cause fatigue. I think it is from the CD though because there are other signs that I'm not absorbing the nutrients I need, my eyesite has deteriorated, my skin is terribly dry and cracked, and I'm losing weight. And like FallColors said, our immune system is busy attacking us...which I'm sure uses a lot of energy.
I hope the multi-vitamin helps you soon! Have you thought of Vitamin B injections? I just had my first one on Monday and it seemed to help boost my energy (and my outlook!)...at least for the day :)
