I've been getting fatigue a lot recently and was wondering how long you are all awake for when your eyes start to get heavy and you feel shattered? I wake up at about 6am and feel half dead by about 8pm. I'm usually fast asleep by 10. I have a stressful job so maybe that's why I feel so exhausted
I'm generally awake between 530 and 630, kids up around 6/7, I could easily sleep by around 2 in the afternoon! Generally asleep by 22/2230. I think it's the time of year too. I need to hibernate in this weather!
Depends on how big the emergency is, and thus how much adrenaline in my system. Start to really flag beyond the 24 hour mark. 48 hours is a major struggle. Hard to believe I used to have to do 72 hours plus.
Mine is about nine hours, DC wakes at 5-6 and by 3 in the afternoon I'm absolutely wrecked. I get through it with coffee and trying not to sit down too much. Usually get a burst of energy around 8, but that might be because the kids are asleep for the first time that day and I have time to my own thoughts (moan moan moan)
Can I ask about your mental health? When my anxiety is really bad, I can’t sleep, but when it’s kind of low-level bubbling under all the time I can sleep for England. When it’s not there at all/at a normal level I find I need a more average amount of sleep and wake up feeling fresh. Do you feel refreshed when you wake up? Is your sleep a solid block or is it disturbed?
I am very, very anaemic and I've recently had two big operations so currently, about three. It takes an hour for my brain to get into gear and out of sleep mode, then by lunchtime I'm tired again! I'm eating well (just snaffling a homemade "breakfast" bar, courtesy of Eat Well For Less) but can't do any exercise due to my operation. I can't sleep, so it's a vicious cycle!
I've read somewhere that the average time people stay awake is about 16-17 hours per day so I'm around that mark. Just wish I felt more energised. Sometimes feel like I'm trudging through mud because my body feels so tired
I usually wake up once in the night, sometimes twice but always manage to get back to sleep unless i have to get up for a wee and then I struggle. My mental health probably isn't the best as I do have anxiety and stress going on
