Why Am I Always Tired?

Now I’m not talking about just having a tiring day and needing some sleep. This post ‘why am I always tired’ is reaching out to those that have such fatigue, that it interferes with their daily life.

ME/CFSChronic Fatigue Syndrome

Is there a chance that you may have Chronic Fatigue Syndrome known as CFS?  In the UK it is often known as Myalgic Encephalomyelitis or ME.  This description of the condition recognises that the muscles and the brain are major problem sites.  Sometimes ME is thought to mean Mental Exhaustion.  Although this appears to be a good description, it can be misconstrued to be a psychological condition which it isn’t, but it can cause psychological problems such as depression, anxiety and panic attacks.

Are you pregnant?  If so I want you to read this article on pregnancy health info., because it could actually save your life.  That does sound a little dramatic in this day and age but there is a condition that is induced by pregnancy that can be a danger to both mother and child.

Going through a pregnancy should be a stirring, emotional and moving experience.  For your body to cope with the extra burden and stress which it has to deal with, you need to be in the best of health.  An expectant mum should be glowing, happy and excited about her forthcoming event.  She is bringing new life into the world and that is a momentous occassion.  If you do all the right things ie.  eat healthily (no junk food), don’t smoke, don’t drink sodas, don’t drink alcohol, don’t take drugs, exercise gently but regularly, you should go through your pregnancy with no problems and produce a healthy child.
