Why am I tired all the time? - Live Well - NHS Choices

Dr Rupal Shah, a GP in south London, says tiredness is one of the most common complaints she sees in her surgery. “I see loads and loads of patients who complain of feeling exhausted, even though they’re sleeping well. Often it’s been going on for several months.”

At any given time, one in five people feels unusually tired, and one in 10 have prolonged fatigue, according to the Royal College of Psychiatrists. Women tend to feel tired more than men.

Dr Shah says she routinely takes a blood test from patients complaining of tiredness to rule out a medical cause, such as anaemia or an underactive thyroid gland.

“There’s more chance of a medical reason for tiredness if there are other symptoms as well, such as heavy periods, weight loss, a change in bowel habits, hair loss, extreme thirst and so on.”

If you want to work out how you became tired in the first place, it can help to think about:

Downsizing - the women turning their backs on fake breasts

When Lynne Hayes's partner cheated on her in 2009, she was convinced she knew how to fix things. “I was an emotional wreck and my self-esteem was shattered,” says the Brisbane mother of four. “I started toying with the idea that if I had better breasts that things would be better, he would love me again and stop seeing her. Was I delusional that by replacing my implants I could fix everything in my life? Who knows? In hindsight therapy would have been a much cheaper option and a lot better for my health.”

HELP – Explant Info Facebook Group deleted | Lynne Hayes

Explant Info has been Empowering Woman on a Global Scale for four years that was until last night when someone reported a picture of my breasts on the group to Facebook. Facebook took action against me by blocking me access to Facebook for 48 hours (something that they later revoked) BUT the worst part was they DELETED the private Facebook group Explant Info from Facebook.I am saddened that someone would be so toxic as to cut the lifeline that so many women globally have and do use on a daily basis. I am confused; I am hurting, I am furious.
I’ve complained and sent messages to Facebook, at this stage there is nothing more I can do.
