I was wondering how other people with depression battle constant fatigue? I have tried eating healthy, getting all my servings of fruit and veggies hoping it would help. I’ve taken up jogging everyday for quite a while hoping the exercise would boost my energy. I’ve been taking multi-vitamins and other supplements that are supposed to increase energy. Nothing seems to work. I usually sleep a good 8 or 9 hours at night and get up in the morning, go jogging, eat breakfast all that good stuff, but within an hour or so of being up I just want to sleep more. I can fight off sleep by watching TV or a movie, surfing the internet, playing video games, stuff that don’t take a lot of energy. But anytime I try to do something productive like clean up my apartment, work on a homework assignment, do laundry etc, I can only do so much before I am so tired I can do nothing but take a nap. In between what I sleep at night and all the naps I take during the day, I sleep probably 14 hours or more per day. When I am awake, I am far too tired to really do anything. I can’t get anything productive done. Are there any suggestions for fighting off this fatigue and getting productive things done? I can live without cleaning my apartment, but I am so far behind in homework that I am close to failing out of school this semester if I don’t get caught up.
