I thought it was because, even though the calendar said it was spring, we still were having winter weather and it was causing me to hibernate.
I have had bouts of fatigue and sleepiness over the years.
I had an episode of anemia that made me feel like I was wading through molasses with lead weights on my shoes.
I would fall asleep in meetings and at my desk at work.
But this time, it was a feeling of being so sleepy that I just wanted to flop on the couch for most of the day.
I'm not depressed, I'm taking my thyroid medication (before I was diagnosed as hypothyroid, I felt like a slug).
What could it be?
Ahh, yes! My doctor changed the dosage of a medication that I take for depression and anxiety. Of course, she did this several weeks ago. It made sense to ask her if this could be the cause of the sleepiness.
Yup. So, last night, per her instructions, I reduced the dose. This morning, I am wide awake and have no desire to lie down on a horizontal surface and snooooooze the day away.
I think I'll make bread today!
