It’s not about motivation its lack of energy….
I am so envious of high energy people. I see them accomplishing above and beyond what the average person can or at least not getting winded by simply living.
Since I was a baby, that’s right since I was an infant, I chose to sleep as much as I could. I even slept through all of my nightly feedings. My mom thought I was dead!
Being a low energy person sucks. It impacts every single thing you do in life. Often things are either left undone or done poorly because I need to rest so frequently. Of course, there could always be an underlying cause such as low iron but I have been tested for pretty much everything that can be tested since I was 18.
I have experimented with supplements to increase energy but haven’t had much luck. The only one that has a mild effect once in awhile is creatine. Some medication works but I find they lose their efficiency quite fast so it may work one day and the next you might need double the dose (which is not recommended without doctor’s advice).
Sometimes I get so tired I can even fall asleep after a pot of coffee and I end up spending the entire day in bed. I feel bad for anyone with Chronic Fatigue and I often wonder if I have it as well. There isn’t much research on the condition or treatment but it’s a terrible disease. I think one of the reasons for lack of research is the fact some people still don’t believe it’s real and that it’s simply a matter of willpower. This is also an issue with depression.
Anxiety also has an impact on my ability to get things done. It can be paralyzing rather than motivating and I can’t even move. Usually this happens when I feel like I have a bunch of energy built up.
I hope I can have normal energy level but for a now life will continue to take enormous amounts effort. If I had the energy, I would do more, and do it better!
