why am i so freaking tired.

 8:27 pm on Sep 22, 2009 (gmt 0)

i went to sleep at or around 10:30...

alarm goes off at 6:30, i snooze until 6:50.

breakfast: oatmeal, raisins brown sugar.
bran muffin, 3 pats of margarine.
chai tea.

lunch: broccoli cheese rise, chicken apple sausage 2 bite size snickers candy. green tea

and its 2:30pm and im freaking exhausted... i could literally close my eyes and be OUT in a flat second.

my head is bobbing all over the place and my eyes are heavy.

my food intake was good... no major sources of caffine.

i think my sleep is good...

this happens quite a bit, whats wrong?

OK, but that's only one night and one day of meals. Maybe you've got some "sleep debt" you still owe your body. [en.wikipedia.org ]

3 guesses... You might need a new mattress, more physical activity, or you might need a vacation. When I'm really bored I feel like I could fall asleep when I blink my eyes.

What type of screen are you using and what refresh rate. Back in the day ctr screens where basicaly burning the eyes out of my head. Once I switched to flat pannel things improved. I used to get troubled by sleep starts, they are no longer an issue since swapping to flat panel.

Your hertz setting may also need checking. If its low it makes your eyes do a lot of the work.



 9:28 pm on Sep 22, 2009 (gmt 0)

I think you need to ask a doctor. Do we have a doctor in the house? :)

It may be that you just need some iron or something like that or it could even be something like diabetes. If I were you I would get it checked out just to be on the safe side.


 9:28 pm on Sep 22, 2009 (gmt 0)

i think my sleep is decent.

i would say no less than 7 hrs each night...

flat panel. 1280 x1024 60hz

what about anemia?
are there other symptoms of anemia?

ive been checked in the past (military) and was negative...is it something that could just appear one day?


 9:36 pm on Sep 22, 2009 (gmt 0)

it's probably all that being forced into posting thats wearing you out ..

BTW chai and tea are the exact same thing ..just different words for tea in different languages ..

BTW2 ..your diet looks like crap ..not surprised you feel tired ..get a blood analysis done ( like BDW hinted ) before you do yourself some long term harm ..and ask your doctor to explain what long sugars are and why they are better than short ones ..and what a vitamin is etc etc ( and why the ones you take in pill form are useless to your organism ) ..you may also be depressed ..get tested ..stop asking strangers in geek fora ..

About the only thing that I'd recommend is adding a daily multivitamin to your diet.

Other than that, go see a doctor! A simple check-up and discussion with a general practitioner will give you all sorts of options to explore.

>>> BTW chai and tea are exactly the same thing...

'Chai tea' refers, I believe, to the traditional herby, spicy infusion that's part Christmas in smell and part disgusting in taste.

It is sold extensively and expensively these days in the ubiquitous coffee shops du jour. Each to their own, of course :-)


 10:06 pm on Sep 22, 2009 (gmt 0)

>>> BTW chai and tea are exactly the same thing...

as Syzygy says they are not. Chai tea has Black Tea, Chicory Root, Cardamom, Pepper, Cinnamon, Ginger, Cloves and NO SUGAR.

green tea is green tea leaf.

i dont know what just "tea" is made of.....Tea leaves?

and how in the heck is my diet crap?

i thought i was doing good.

oatmeal, bran muffin, green tea?
better than a mcdonalds egg mcmuffin hashbrowns and coffee...


 10:09 pm on Sep 22, 2009 (gmt 0)

I think the
chicken apple sausage 2 bite size snickers candy
part qualifies as crap. :)

I know that I have been lagging in the afternoons the past month or so. I think it's mainly because I haven't been getting my lunch bike ride in. Sort of a Catch-22: no energy to ride, no riding results in less energy...


 10:21 pm on Sep 22, 2009 (gmt 0)

I am half tired reading all the comments till I am posting ;) j/k

maybe you require a vacation, were you dont have access to internet for atleast 48 hours (try this for sure)

Chai sounds Indian or hindi isn't it like adopted from Indian languages ?


 10:24 pm on Sep 22, 2009 (gmt 0)

chai ..indian word means tea ..
original meaning

not starbucks yuppy modern speak where chai means adulterated muck ..unless they also add the word masala ..in which case the meaning gets changed due the masala meaning mixture ( doesnt translate exactly but that is the gist of the word ) ..

example "masala chai" ..means "mixture tea" ..
as in "garam masala" means "mixed spices" ..and there are many many kinds of garam masala ..each to their own mix ..

your diet ..

you eat refined sugar ( proven carcinogen ) ( brown is not the same as "raw" ..brown means coloured white sugar ..ie dyed brown ..to fool ya ) at every sitting to start with ..
plus what sugar is probably already mixed into your muffin ..and what refined sugar is no doubt mixed into "broccoli cheese rise, chicken apple sausage 2 bite size snickers candy"..or did you make all these "delicious" items with your own fair hands ..and grow your own tea ..thought not ;)

BTW black tea is just fermented and treated green tea same general species ..one tastes bitter ..the other is flavour softened by fermentation and treating ..

I'll leave you to your own expert dietary advice ..horses and water ..


 10:34 pm on Sep 22, 2009 (gmt 0)

well my "chai tea" or "tea tea" is not from starbucks.

its Good Earth chai tea bagged tea. not the creamy treat that costs $5 and tastes like a milkshake.

the bran muffin is from my work cafeteria, and it tastes horrible, so i dont think there is much sugar in there.

so, cut back on the sugar. got it.

does excess amounts of sodium cause you to peak and crash like sugar?

maybe the sausage had too much sodium.


 10:39 pm on Sep 22, 2009 (gmt 0)

A lack of energy is often due to the cells being able to convert carbs due to many possible things, tis increasingly common

See a doctor, some folk don't and it doesn't go away on its own, infact,,,,,


 10:46 pm on Sep 22, 2009 (gmt 0)


bran muffin - Sugar and fats. Most of the calories coming from sugar and fat.

3 pats of margarine. Margarine can contain hydrogenated fats. Check the label. In any case, those are empty calories.

broccoli cheese rise: I don't know what that is, but the cheese adds cholesterol and fats to an otherwise healthy food choice. If you want to add a little fat to broccoli to satisfy your craving for fat, dip it in olive oil, let excess drip off, then bake it in your oven for twenty minutes at around 400 degrees.

chicken apple sausage - Cholesterol and unecessary fats. Most of the calories are coming from fat.

2 bite size snickers candy. Corn syrup, hydrogenated oil... This is highly refined processed product. This is not food, it's a science project.

Aside from the food, do you snore at night? Sleep apnea can rob you of the benefits of sleep. If you snore then go get yourself tested, it's a serious condition that can negatively affect your health.

This is not food, it's a science project.


Curious ..how tall are you ..whats your waist size ( widest part of body )..what do you weigh ..age ?

you dont have to answer ..but if you do be 100% honest ;)


 11:09 pm on Sep 22, 2009 (gmt 0)

Sleep debt and perhaps more exercise.


 2:53 pm on Sep 23, 2009 (gmt 0)

@leosghost OK, and for breakfast today:

1 hardboiled egg - dash of salt and pepper

cottage cheese - 2% milk - pepper 1 serving

cup of sliced fruit - strawberries, grapes, watermelon, canteloupe, melon, pineapple.

cup of green tea.

got good sleep last night.

played a game of softball. got home around 9:30pm, had a glass of merlot with my wife, got in bed asleep by 10:15.


 3:23 pm on Sep 23, 2009 (gmt 0)

It could be the sign of something more serious... if you don't feel like seeing a Doc about it, maybe post on a medical forum?


 3:30 pm on Sep 23, 2009 (gmt 0)

If your website crashed would you ask your medical doctor why it crashed?


 3:48 pm on Sep 23, 2009 (gmt 0)

Go for a full checkup ..ask the doc about what I said before and diet in general ..plus tell him this
HOWEVER... at that point when i feel just when im about to fall asleep, I shake myself awake because I feel like im about to stop breathing... and I have to shake my body back to life...

and that you sometimes eat crap :)

Now stop posting about it and phone the doc for that check up ..dont bother posting on a medical forum ..they all watch way too much house MD :)


 5:54 pm on Sep 23, 2009 (gmt 0)

Yup, Dr. is best option. Medical forum will push you harder in that direction that webmaster one will... unless problem is caused by a slipped disk? :O)


 6:10 pm on Sep 23, 2009 (gmt 0)

I am not suggesting anything, but you will not get any REM sleep when drunk. Any chance you are you are drinking alcohol in the evenings?


 6:11 pm on Sep 23, 2009 (gmt 0)

Also, I used to lose a lot of sleep because of heartburn. As soon as I solved that problem I was able to get a full night sleep on a regular basis.

You might have Mono (or infectious mononucleosis) you can get it as a kid and never show symptoms for years and years and as an adult one of the only symptoms you may have is fatigue. Well over 90% of all adults are exposed to mono at some point in their life.



 8:14 pm on Sep 23, 2009 (gmt 0)

All this talk.. talk, talk, talk. Do what I do, go take a nap.


 8:30 pm on Sep 23, 2009 (gmt 0)

Sorry to wake you up Grandpa- we'll try to keep things down from now on. :)


 8:43 pm on Sep 23, 2009 (gmt 0)

i tend to stray away from medical forums becuase i always get the worst case scenario and i freak myself out.

no i dont get drunk before i got to bed. one glass of merlot is healthy i dont care what anyone here says...

1 bottle.. .now thats a different story.

although its not out of my reach on a celebration evening.

ok off to the doc i go.

good ol VA medical hospital. i should be there a few days or so...
