Being sedentary and "fatigue"?

I'm generally a sedentary guy. I go to school, but I have lots of down time, lots of reading, watching TV, lots of "boring" days, though I tend to enjoy what I do. While I exercise six of seven days a week (45 minutes to an hour of moderate aerobic exercise), most of my day is spent sitting down. I find myself "fatigued" and tired a lot, yawning, achy muscles, etc. My mom vehemently blames it on my being sedentary/lazy, but I'm unsure about that.

I also suffer from anxiety and a controlled case of Type II diabetes.

What say you? Is there a link between this all?

I have fibromyalgia, with fatigue being my worst symptom. I find that doing something boring or being sedentary can worsen the problem. I may be really tired in the morning, but I sit down and start doing computer work at my job and the fatigue deepens to the point where I literally can't hold my eyes open any longer.

They are definitely connected. But for me, even when I'm active, I'm tired. It just might not feel as pronounced.
