    A couple of times I have been at work, thinking ok when I get home I am going to do it. Have it all planned out, hubby is out for the night etc, Then I get home and feel so exhausted that instead of doing it, I end up falling asleep like at 6.30pm!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    The only plan and attempt I have ever made fuelled me with energy up until the point where it failed and then I became exhausted.

    Maybe your exhaustion is just general, or something is telling you not to attempt..

    my plans, and subsequent attempts, weren't draining, more; calming. i was serene (thinking) taht i would have a chance to be free of this place.

    but of course i'm still here.

    its exhausting recovering mentally from one for me.

    the anger and patheticness that sets in after you survive. thats almost as bad as wanting to die imo

    The anxiety and tension I feel right before getting down to business makes me tired.

    I am always having panic, when I plan for suicide... I see a future I am satisfied with, and I calm down, usually now with more energy and clear thinking. When I give up the idea of suicide, I go back to panic and crazy, racing thoughts with a hopeless, bleak future.

    After attempting I have actually felt much happier and more energised. :eek:hmy:

    We are all different.

    I don't find myself physically exhausted, but mentally very much so.

    It's a proven fact that both depression and anxiety can cause physical effects. That may be where you are getting these feelings.
