Link I'll never drink again Vol. 2: I'm so tired.

I'm so tired.

I've recently complained to my sponsor and my therapist about how tired I seem to be lately. I really thought that once I started working out I'd feel more energized and I don't. When I first quit drinking I couldn't sleep at all. Now I seem to sleep constantly. I slept good Friday night and then I lay down for a nap on Saturday afternoon around 4 pm and I didn't wake up till 8:15 pm. Jeese. Then I slept last night till 5 this morning. Now I feel like taking a nap again. Nobody should need 15 hours of sleep each day, should they? I'm not depressed. I used to sleep a lot when I was depressed. Maybe I'm getting too much exercise at the gym. I'm sure my trainer wouldn't agree. Heck, I'm not bored. I've got lots to do. I just feel tired. My therapist says I've gone from standing still to suddenly going 60 mph. Both he and my sponsor suggested I give it another month. Patience has never been one of my virtues. I'll try.

Hannen,

Being tired is our bodies way of telling us to slow down. THink about it though we never slept, life was one constant party. In the beginning we have to break that pattern and try to get some sllep. Then when our bodies start recovering from the abuse it took, it requires more sleep...Enjoy it while it lasts..lol :)

I agree that you should jsut keepon keeping on. Your body (emotionally and physically) needs time to adjust to the new schedule that you are giving it. It takes a little time though. Don't give up 5 sit-ups before the miracle.
