For the last few days I have felt extremely drained. I haven't tracked any of my food. I have however, still managed to drink alot of water. I have a container that holds 18 cups and I have to fill it up at least twice a day...once in the afternoon and again before bed.

My sleep patterns are strange. I go to bed and when I wake up in the morning, I am ready to tackle my day. As soon as I eat and take my medication, I am ready for bed. Length of time up varies from one to two hours. Good thing though is I am not sleeping as long as I used to during the day. Maybe an hour and a half now instead of three to five as before.

I have tried to assess what I am eating. I normally eat either a bowl of oatmeal or cereal now. If I eat eggs and bacon, it is the same sleepy outcome. If I can by chance stay up and beat the sleep, then it's the same fight with lunch and dinner.

Exercising when I am drained hurts all over. It's like I can't pick myself up or even lift my feet to walk. I have plans during the coming week to address some of these issues but not sure what the results will be.

I welcome any thoughts or suggestions. I don't want to get derailed from my healthy lifestyle change. I have been able to keep some Fast Break goals consistent even with this awful feeling.

    You don't have a throat infection, do you? Because that can interfere with your sleep. You might should visit a sleep clinic. It could be that you aren't breathing at night. They would be able to tell at the clinic when they're observing you. Sleep is so important. I hope you get this worked out soon. I've been having similar problems, with being tired, from my PTSD. My nightmares are so bad that I am scared to go to sleep.

    I do I know that I have a Potassium and Vitamin D deficiency. I need to also remember to keep a check on my blood sugar. Remembering to track my sugar after I eat has become a problem to remember.

    I am setting up an appointment this week to have my A1C and other blood work done so that I can better manage all this. Something just isn't right.

    I am wondering if I just might be getting to much because I take a multivitamin, potassium and Vitamin D as the doctor recommended before. I will keep you posted.

    Have you spoken to your doctor yet? There's a possibility of a medical reason for these symptoms, and if it's something like a vitamin deficiency or another problem easily corrected by a small change, then it's important to get it corrected right away.
