Exhausted

Up until a few days ago I'd been sleeping a constant number of hours per night and feeling good. I started feeling a little more tired than usual a few days ago and noticed that as I got more tired, I also felt more itchy. So itchy, in fact, that I have red marks from where I've been scratching

I was exhausted all day yesterday and ended up sleeping until 2pm!! today, something that I haven't done in a very long time. I only got up because the doorbell rang with a delivery - if the doorbell hadn't rung, I think I'd have slept until the early evening. Or tomorrow.

I have no idea why I'm so tired right now. Am I fighting something off? Is it related to some emotional stuff I realized last week that I've been trying not to think about? Is it because I've run out of my Celebrex painkiller? I don't know. All I know is that I'm really, really, really tired and if I stay this tired it's going to be hard to get things done.

sleep... sleep... sleep... i'd say to heck with getting things done. what you need to get done right now is keeping yourself healthy, no?

one thing to keep in mind is that excess sleep can exacerbate depression (due to excess serotonin or something), which you might want to keep in mind on the off chance it is unresolved issues that are leading to excess sleep.
