And so on. I guess I've found a certain freedom in chronic fatigue. I should probably mention that although I'm tired all the time, I'm almost always alert. I attribute that to pain. It's hard to get drowsy when **** hurts lol.

Antihistamines definitely contribute.



I can't remember the last time I felt energetic in the morning. Feel like I have one big cycle of taking downer antihistamines at night, taking stimulants during the day. Lifting weights helps. I should really check out a breathing machine for apnea.

Certain types of food allergies and intolerances can cause chronic fatigue. I've started exploring this connection for myself.

depression can be a symptom of bipolar disorder, but he's right that depression as its own disorder can't coexist with bipolar disorder, by definition.

Most people with bipolar II disorder also suffer from episodes of depression. This is where the term "manic depression" comes from.

I know. Bipolar implies cycling between manic and depressed states (and sometimes mixed). Depressed mood is a symptom of bipolar in this case, not a separate disorder.

I feel tired all the time too. i have no energy to do anything. i actually feel the same when i go to sleep as when i wake up. i dont drink coffee but when i have i only felt wired and not awake. caffeine just doesnt do it for me. i cant get a regular nights sleep either. ill sleep for 2-4 hours wake up. lie around for half hour to an hour. then sleep for another 2- 4 hours. i cant seem to concentrate on anything and i just feel lousy all day.

I became chronically fatigued this summer. Finally in August/September I went to the doctor and added Wellbutrin to the Celexa I had been on for over a year. The Wellbutrin helped a ton with my depression and fatigue. It was like I went from seeing in black and white to color again.

Currently I'm on 9hr work days with using public transport and some walking to get around there and back. I'm not a great sleeper but I get really run down far too fast. I try to eat a lot of energy foods nice and clean, lots of water and daily exercise (which is proving tricky from my normal 1hr a day to hardly anything with new work hours)

I want to pick up my hobbies again but near the end of the work day I just get home and have no focus or energy
