From reading all of these posts it really alarms me how many of us experience this. It seems like many of you are just like me. You have tried so many things and nothing has worked. It is rare that I will have days that I actually feel awake and I cherish those days. I often wonder if there is something biologically wrong with me. Or perhaps that I make myself anxious by constantly worrying about this….and that the anxiety actually makes me more fatigued. It really is hell to go through life like this. I hope we all figure it out.
I am a 14 year old female, and I hate getting up early in the mornings for school. Yes I realize everyone says this, but for me I feel it’s different because I’m starting to actually worry about how tired I am becoming. I have no energy for anything anymore. It’s scaring me help me!

Many people, especially young people, find themselves worried about being tired. It’s normal to worry, but that will only make you feel worse.
Try to accept that many, many teens and young adults feel tired all the time. Of course, that doesn’t mean you should accept being tired. Just try not to worry about it.
