I literally sleep all the time but am still tired… is there anything wrong?

Blue Asked: I literally sleep all the time but am still tired… is there anything wrong?

I'm sure I don't have sleep apnea, but lately I've been sleeping all day and all night, and I'm still tired. I'm ashamed of this, actually. I have been putting off all of my homework and am now failing several classes just so I can sleep. I'm too exhausted to do work I don't want to do. I'm not anemic, I got tested for it, neither am I over weight. I'm also not pregnant, and am 16 years old. I mean, lately I've been crying every night for the past few months due to family issues, so i'm not sure if this could be the problem. I also am starting to get panic attacks when I cry every once in a while and have been extremely stressed and incredibly miserable. My sleeping habits and everything else have changed who I am :/ I used to be stronger and better than this! But I can't seem to change, even though I really want to :(. I don't have the money to go to the doctor or anything, so is there anything I can do? Thanks.

You need to understand that mental issues are related to physical issues, your basically thinking about your life and family issues so much that its wearing you down. Thinking about those issues and neglecting your own health is bad, try to focus and have some activities away from home when you get the chance. If you can't help your family resolving the issues try to be with some friends or doing hobbies you like to help you forget about these issues.

you're probably suffering from depression & anxiety-2 illnesses that can be treated, but u need to c a dr. so u can get a diagnosis & they can help you probably with some medication and/or some therapy, teenagers also need more sleep that other people, but not as much as ur sleeping, the crying is a sign of anxiety which also can b treated by a dr.-go talk to your mom or dad & explain to them what u've said here & make sure that they no that u feel that you need to c a dr. as far as not having the money to go to a dr. there r mental health clinics in most counties (if you live in the u.s.) just look in your phone book-good luck to you & i hope this helps

You have low energy because of stress and lethargy.
Sleep is necessary, but not in excess. Too much sleep also causes tiredness. Fix a regular time for sleep. 8 hours sleep should be just enough. In the morning go for a walk in bright sunlight. Sunlight will regulate you body's sleep clock. If needed you can takeanap for not more than 20 minutes after lunch. Do more outdoor activities and light excercise.
Yoga and meditation will surely help you overcome anxiety If you dont know how to meditate, guided meditation CDs are available, ( I have attached a link for free guided meditations.) or you could just sit quietly with your eyes cosed and take deep smooth breaths for 15-20 minutes.
Eat foods that have more life energy. i.e. Fruits, vegetables, sprouts, nuts, dates and freshly cooked vegetarian food. Don't eat stale food or highly processed food. Avoid non-veg food fora few days, till you feel better.
Hope this helps. All the best!

If waking tired, after adequate sleep time, my 2 top suspects are * & ** Take 4 Omega 3 fish oil supplements, daily. They should be certified as being free of mercury, and if containing vitamin E, it should be shown as from a natural source; otherwise it is synthetic: avoid it! Consume with an orange, or its freshly squeezed juice, or another good antioxidant. Consider taking a 100% natural vitamin B complex, daily. Exercise moderately daily. Ginseng reputedly boost energy levels. DO NOT USE IF DIABETIC! See http://www.webmd.com/vitamins-lifestyle- & http://www.livestrong.com/article/59753- Have a high protein breakfast of fish, or eggs and possibly bacon within an hour of arising; they provide a lasting energy boost; no carbohydrates for 2 hrs, or extremely little. I note with interest that the Beijing Olympic decathlon gold medalist had scrambled eggs for breakfast.www.radiantrecovery.comrefers. Most people in modern society today eat a poor diet, with far too much processed foods, contributing to lack of energy, depression, and anxiety. Eat more in accordance with your "nutritional type":- ( 20 question quiz http://www.naturalhealthcoach.com/tools ) or at www.mercola.comAlso enter "ubiquinol" (a more usable form of CoQ10) & vitamin B12". See http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articl &

Minimise/eliminate consumption of highly processed foods, particularly grain products, such as white bread, donuts, cake, cookies/biscuits, or anything with sugar. Opt for more wholefoods, non-starchy vegetables (especially broccoli, and spinach, with lemon, or vinegar), and fruit. Have a medical checkup, (thyroid function, adrenals*, etc. Google: "thyroid; Armour" Check out: www.stopthethyroidmadness.com& www.realthyroidhelp.com& http://www.peertrainer.com/LoungeCommuni & www.feelingfff.com ) including blood tests, for low iron levels, blood glucose levels, etc. Many people in Western countries are lacking in vitamins & minerals, such as zinc, magnesium, and calcium, & vitamin D3. Dr. John Cannell of http://vitaminDcouncil.org advises that the co-factors most often deficient in the American diet, and necessary to optimise its absorption, and utilisation are magnesium, zinc, boron, and vitamin K2 ( http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articl ). I recommend using either health food/vitamin stores, or Googling: " … ; supplies" rather than risking any old, or substandard products at supermarkets, or even on pharmacy shelves. Another possibility is that you may be developing Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. Check this out at: www.mayoclinic.com See: http://www.collectivewizdom.com/FoodsTha and manage stress by practicing one of the following, daily: www.drcoxconsulting.com/managing-stress. or http://altmedicine.about.com/cs/mindbody or www.wikihow.com/Meditateand/or Tai Chi, Qi Gong, or yoga. Females may benefit by balancing the DHA, & EPA versions of Omega 3 in krill oil with ALA flaxseed oil Omega 3, or at least one heaped tablespoonful of ground flaxseed, daily.
