So dang tired

Went to my internship today. Cared for animals then I was spray painting. I only worked for 3 hours but dang I was tired. I took a long nap afterwards. I slept good cuz of daylight savings time, could the inhalation of spray paint make me tired? Never been so tired after such a short shift…albeit I did work hard.

I wake up tired. Endure the day tired. Go to bed tired. There is no state of non-tiredness in my life since being medicated.

Yeah I was like that on clozaril…sleep 20 hours per day…eat the other 4

It’s partly the medications. I wish I could work, but we all have limitations.

Well that all included a physical work so I wouldn’t be concerned…
I also get tired (and bored) after only a few activities.

Once you get into a routine you won’t get so tired. Something new usually is draining.

I texted the girl I was spray painting with she said she was unordinarily tired too.

Yes it could. Be careful. Maybe wear one of those face masks next time.

I get real tired - I take like 3 hour naps at a time!

Its the shorter days - I like to Hibernate during the Autumn/Winter Months.

Agreed. Face masks are essential for spray painting.

Why do people with sz and sza get so tired?

I’m like this too. Although for me it has nothing to do with meds.

Its partially because of the Antipsychotics - they drain you!

Thanks! What’s the least sedating ap?

Latuda and Abilify are not as sedating usually - Geodon can be this way as well.
