I am so tired. Tired like you cant even keep your eyes open. But I slept almost 10 hours last night. I didn’t do much today. I wasn’t even out in the sun as much as I would have liked to. So why am i so tired. EDS depletes my energy. I have basically half the energy of a “normal” person. I cant do a whole day’s worth of stuff usually, and many days I need a nap in the middle in order to get all my work done in a day. Productive for me is being able to get to all my classes, do one or two online errands or a blog post, and wash off all my makeup and brush my teeth at the end of the day. Its just too much sometimes. Its finals now and I have a billion things to do and no energy and also no digestive capability for eating things that give me extra energy. So i just stumble along and hope that I can take a nap and then soon this will all be over and I can sleep forever (two weeks) until the next thing starts. Luckily, I also have an amazing support system of people who motivate me and help me to finish my work and to keep my health in check. Without those people I would probably be asleep most of the time or not be in school. Fatigue is a big part of why many people with EDS arent/did not go to school. I wish there was something we could do for this but like most EDS things its something you kind of have to deal with and find your own way out of.
