    I have no energy and feel really weak. My body just doesn't feel right. I need to sleep. Anyone else experiencing this? :(

    These are normal, classic symptoms of depression. They could also be associated to medications you may be taking. Have you discussed this with your doctor or your case manager?

    Hiya, Pogosticker...Sure sounds like the physical side of depression! Perhaps your doc could help? I hope you feel better soon, hun!

    You should also request labs be done to check other possible causes, especially thyroid levels. It's a hugely under-diagnosed contributor, maybe even cause, of depression - especially the physical symptoms associate with it (weakness, fatigue, listlessness, etc)

    All the time...I can be really tired and still not sleep at all...and in all sorts of physical pain always. Sorry you feel this way. :hug:
