    Default Is sadness/exhaustion normal?

    Hi everyone,

    I often read this forum but have only just decided to post. I have a question.

    I have 3 boys 5,3 and 1. I get exhausted. When I do I get quite sad/moody. This isn't normal for me but has been happening on and off for about a year. My kids don't sleep we'll so that naturally ads to the tiredness, but it's an overwhelming tiredness that I get where every muscle feels heavy. So does my heart. Today I feel fine though. I don't always feel like that.

    Is this normal or should I see someone?

    Could it be hormones? Pay attention to your cycle and see if its happening at certain times during the month, I find I get a bit down the week before my period.

    Doesn't hurt to get it checked out. I was feeling like that and it turned out I had very low iron stores.

    Hope you you feel better soon

    You know mum2twinboys I'd actually thought if that. I think you're right, I might go get checked out. Blood test can't hurt. I guess I just wanted to know whether it was within the realm of 'normal'.
