I don’t know if I’m faking it?

0

For the past few months I’ve been feeling very tired and unmotivated. I would just doze off as soon as I’m sitting down because nothing catches my attention enough to keep me awake. Everyone I talked to tells me that I’m just being lazy but I often feel an uncontrollable urge to just fall asleep or just sit and listen to my thoughts, whatever they may be. I currently have a healthy sleep schedule and I eat healthy meals regularly but for some reason I still feel this way.

A lot of the time, I also feel really sad and unfocused on anything because of stress from school. But since I’m a psych major, I’m not sure if I feel that way because I actually am sad, unmotivated, and unfocused or if it’s because I know the symptoms of anxiety and mood disorders and for some reason I just want something to blame. I know I sound like a horrible person for wanting to blame a disorder (I’m not consciously trying to!), so I’m hoping you guys would be kind enough to share your thoughts.

Thanks :)

By experience i can tell you stress can be very exhausting, even if you eat and sleep healthy it can consume a lot of your energy not only physical but mental, maybe it's also leading you to feel kind of depressed, i don't know. I remember one time that I started to have a lot of problems at school, i couldn't concentrate on anything, i used to forget important things and money everywhere, so it was causing me trouble to function every day.I went to the neurologist to ask him to give me something that would help my attention problem, he told me i had depression and i hadn't even realize! it didn't even crossed my mind, and after analizing a series of events that had happened to me before the wole thing started i think he was right.I don' think you're a bad person, maybe you can consult someone like I did to give you his/her neutral opinion, i know it's very hard to live that way, I hope you can find a solution :-)

I think you may be iron deficient. When your body is lacking in iron and vitamin C+D, it starts to shut down and you can feel sad and tired all the time. I'd go and see your doctor to go and have a blood sample done to check your iron levels. Make sure you go outside often to soak up sun so that your body produces enough vitamin D and eat plenty of red meat or heaps of broccoli or spinach. If your doctor thinks your're iron deficient then they may prescribe iron supplements for you to take n_n I had this exact problem last year (loss of focus, wanting to fall asleep all the time) and now that I've amped up my iron intake, I'm pretty awake most of the day.
