Why is it when I'm tired... - September 13th 2010, 11:07 AM

This thread has been labeled as triggering, particularly on the subject of suicide, by the original poster or by a Moderator. The contents of this thread therefore might not be suitable for certain sensitive users. Please take this into consideration before continuing to read.

I feel like I'm going to snap at any moment? :| As in have a panic attack or something. Also, about two years ago I went through a phase where I would sleep every other day (stupid, I know) I drank loads of red bull once to keep me awake and I went insane (literally) :/ I was really scared, kept crying, felt depersonalised, had a strong urge to jump out my window etc. I feel like something like that may happen again.

Does anyone else feel like this when tired?

Yup ^^

Being tired actually affects mood a great deal. Since your energy and resistances are very low, it will affect you mentally too and your mind has far less tolerance and will snap a great deal easier. The majority of the time that I've ever been extremely depressed, snapped, made a stupid decision or got angry ....it's been when I was tired or hadn't slept enough.

Basically sleep is very important to rest your mind too. Snapping more easily when tired is the same for everyone. Also forcefully keeping yourself awake (such as caffeine) is a very bad idea mood-wise, because it keeps your body awake, but your mind stays tired and gets more and more exhausted.

At least I know it's normal, that's a plus I guess :/ Insomnia really doesn't help I also just feel genuinely tired when I shouldn't be at all ._____.

Sleep is a necessary function. Sleep deprivation can affect the mood, your health, everything. So yes, it is normal to feel that way when you are tired. How many hours of sleep are you getting each night? You should be getting 8 to feel at your best. If you are getting that (or more than that), I would suggest seeing a doctor to see if you have sleep apnea or something like that.

Sorry about all this info, I'm just taking a class right now that focuses mainly on sleep

I have about 10-11 hours sleep a night :/ I actually couldn't go to college this morning because I was so damn tired (I had 8 hours sleep) I'm going to my GP at 4pm. I can't live like this anymore

I went and he give me sleeping pills He said if I will be able to fall asleep earlier (which I couldn't before due to my insomnia) I will be able to sleep longer and will be less tired. He said in general I seemed healthy though.

This is me when I can't go to sleep at night. I swear when I'm really tired I just feel like bawling my eyes out over every little thing.

If i don't sleep it normally makes me really ill. I have awful headache and i'm really sick. Kinda gross.
I feel awful all the time. I mean, i get enough sleep but i'm always so tired even after 9 hours of sleep. I'm constantly exhausted. At first i thought it was emotionaly tired but i'm not sure anymore


How come dumb stuff seems so smart while you're doing it?
Good friends get drunk with you. Best friends hold your hair back when you've had a bit too much to drink!
There's no such thing as good girls gone wrong, only bad girls found out.
I've learned...
that maturity has more to do with what types
of experiences you've had and what you've
learned from them and less to do with how
many birthdays you've celebrated.
