I need so much sleep a day, that it's becoming a bit of a joke!
I have to have 10 hours sleep at night, and a nap at some point during the day, normally the moment I get in from placement or whatever else I'm doing. Yesterday I got in and didn't make it past the front door I was that tired, so had an hour nap by it...... my housemates are starting to suspect I'm turning into a cat!
I am reasonably anemic and take iron for it, but this doesn't seem to improve it much. Does anyone else suffer from being tired all the time? I spoke to a GP about it, and he just made the standard 'i'm not surprised, maybe it's the drug's maybe it's the impact on your body from your lungs' comment.
If anyone has any advice on dealing with tiredness than that would be amazing... or in a similar position?
I try to be healthy, I try to exercise to make it better, but going running when your exhausted isn't much fun. I also eat a mountain of dextrose tablets walking around placement, which I'm guessing isn't doing me a lot of good - the sugar dips? but they keep me awake, so I keep taking them...
