Mid Morning crashes

I was wondering if anyone else experiences anything similar to this. I work 6am-2pm..and around about 9:30...I am so exhausted I feel like I'm going to collapse... I finish the rest of my shift feeling like I am in a dream. I was like this even back in highschool..It's weird...I feel like I can't stop staring...and i'm not staring at anything. I have not been to a doctor..was wondering if any of you might have any advice or similar expericence to share.

Re: Mid Morning crashes


I totally understand what you are saying. I get up at 6am with my kids during the school year and by the time I get them off to school, 7:30am or so, I can't function....I have to go lay down and sleep. Sometimes it's for 4 hours!!! It's like you can't control it, you have things you know in your mind you want to get done or do, but you simply cannot do them. I too, stare into space, looking at nothing, just sit. I am a type "A" personality and for me to just sit like that, is really strange for me.

I hate this, it is so hard to function on a daily basis. I feel like life is passing me by. I have restless leg syndrome also, and it's gotten worse since I have had another bout with CFS...going on 4 months now and so I have to take Requip for it. I wonder if there is a link between them?

Just know you are not alone! I'm right there with you!

Re: Mid Morning crashes

hi destiny. i have the same thing. get up at 630am to get my daughter to school then come home and jump in bed. i can stay there all day. sad to say but i can't wait till night time so i can go back to sleep. i have rsd and i take many meds. my doc just diagnosed me with narcolepsy and i am taking provagil to help keep me awake during the datime. have been taking it for a few weeks now and feel no better. i lie to my hubby, kids, mother, mom-in-law and my friends about what i do during the day cause i'm too embarrased to tell them the truth. i don't know why i have this now. never had any problems with this before. developed rsd in nov of 2005 and this day sleep stuff started about 6 mo. ago. oh well, hope you feel better soon. patti

Re: Mid Morning crashes

Thanks for your replies. I am happy I'm not's not easy. I wish I had insurance so I could go see my doctor. I have never gone to the doc for I have no idea what's going on. It just sucks.. b/c there is so much I want to do..but because I'm so tired...I don't do anything...I'm only 23 and have done hardly anything ppl my age do. grrrrrrrr
