    Default Normal exhaustion/ functioning level

    It may be normal, I’m not saying it’s not, but that’s not my experience.
    I don’t jump out of bed everyday with a pep in my step, but I do have enough energy to get things moving along and often in mid-morning, you’ll find me dancing around with kids or playing funny games. Just generally moving my body. I have days where I feel completely flat and I’m like how you describe, simple tasks are too much, but definitely not every day.
    I’m sorry you are feeling this way. Perhaps you just need a break? Some time to recharge. I’d try and start with that. An evening or even a night away if you can. Maybe get someone in to tidy up so you can go away and not have to stress about it. I’d also make a visit with your GP, have your levels checked. Stuff like low iron can really fatigue you. If you don’t want to try that just yet, I find Berocca in the morning helps on those flat days. Might be completely placebo, who knows.

    sounds abnormal to me. there’s tired but if you’re constantly like this, i’d be asking my gp to run some bloods. you might be very low in iron? could it be cfs? i’d be having a chat to my gp. i’d also ignore parents, they tend to whitewash things with broad generalizations. yes “everyone is tired” but the tiredness you’re describing sounds more than usual imo.

    I agree with previous posters. I’d make a trip to the GP and explain what’s going on.
    Ask for tests
    You mention exercise, but are you overweight? I am. And I find the heavier I get the harder everything is, the tireder I am and the worse I sleep. I have to do something about it urgently. This may not be your situation at all. But just thought I’d mention it because at my heaviest I could barely do anything.

    I wouldn’t say that’s normal and would definitely be getting some bloods done. Fatigue always has an underlying cause, and it may be something simple to fix like low iron. Yes, it’s tiring being a Mum, but even when I was getting minimal sleep with newborns I had more energy than you describe. Please go to the Dr, you need to look after you first.

    Default Normal exhaustion/ functioning level

    I echo everyone’s sentiments. What you’re describing doesn’t sound ‘normal’, especially fatigue/tiredness that is so severe you’re forgetting to go to the toilet/eat/drink etc.

    It may well be psychosomatic, but I would definitely be doing as others have suggested and getting full bloods done.
    I know that the thought of that (going to the Doctor etc) is probably hard, but it’s very worrisome what you’re describing, especially feeling everything is a ‘failure’. At least by getting a professional to see/hear/test you, you can find out what is really going on with your mind and body.

    Everyone has days where they’re flat and can’t do anything and can’t focus. But every day means there’s probably more going on. Definitely chat to your GP. Might be something you can easily fix.

    I agree with the others - definitely doesn't sound normal!! But without knowing what your psychosocial disability is, it's hard to distinguish whether it's related to that or something else?? So sorry you're going through this

    Gotta be honest other parents have expected nothing of me? I’ve never been asked to contribute anything. I buy the raffle tickets but aside from school concerts and parent teacher interviews, everything else is voluntary with no guilt attached. Maybe find a new school!
