I am constantly tired. I know the weather doesnt help as it is so hot. I am a teaching assistant and as it is coming towards the end of term we are all tired at school. However, my tiredness is so overwhelming. As I suffer with depression, anxiety and stress I wondered if it is a symptom of this. I am in a viscous circle as I know I need to do activity to keep my spirits up but Im so tired I can only just manage to get through the day at school which thankfully finishes at 3pm!
How do I overcome this. I was driving yesterday on the motorway and was falling asleep. My wife had to take over. I spent the weekend at a family wedding which was difficult as I had to put a false smile on and pretend my life was good but in fact I felt fed up and really tired. How can I go on. I get irritable and short tempered. I was going out later but I have just cancelled that as I feel terrible. I had an appraisal with my head teacher this afternoon. She is lovely. She knows how I feel and she asked is there any thing else she can do to help me. We have a few plans. To do with reducing my work load more. I dont want to be a burden.
