The era of constant tiredness

Visible to anyone in the world
Edited by Richie Cuthbertson, Thursday, 30 Sept 2021, 19:46

Feeling a bit under the weather. Depression seems to be getting the better of me again. Mostly because I can't sleep well at the moment. It really frustrates me hearing all these experts telling how important sleep is, and the health dangers of not getting enough, but no matter how hard I try I just cannot get the bare minimum of 7 hours a night. I always wake up tired and unable to go back to sleep again. Eventually lieing there and not sleeping I get fed up of being in bed awake and I get up and study, but to be homest my brain just does not work well when it is tired, even with coffee. I look at the study materials and just struggle to comprehend them in this state of mind. I really hate insomnia. I've tried so many different things to help with sleep and nothing works. 

From talking to different people I realise I  am not alone with this problem. It feels like this modern age is cursed to be one where we humans are always tired and sleep deprived. No wonder the world is so crazy.
