Hi I am new on this site and I would like your advice . Over the last five weeks or so I have found myself having just enough energy to go through my day (secondary school Special Needs Dept) then I just want to come home and sleep . I am physically exhausted I can't even be bothered to go for a coffee after work or walk round the village some days .
I know I am stressed but I have usually found ways round relaxing and it has worked but I have never experienced this before . I even throw my clothes on the floor I am too tired to pick them up , I have two children at home one with Downs Syndrome and a boy 21 yrs who is leaving for Australia for a year in September. I have been a single parent for 10years , have no support from their father and work full time , weekends are spent with my daughter mostly , son working , so I am restricted what I can do .
I am still having hot flushes now and again , watching my weight, good healthy diet, which is within range considering my sedentary job . I have been on Citalopram 20mg since my daughter was born for anxiety .
Is it old age just arriving early as I use to be able to do things so spontaneously now I have to think if I have the energy first .
Thank you for any advice
