None left for me

I'm so tired. I have little to complain about, I'm grateful to be able to work. But working life is so exhausting, I don't have the energy to be happy in the evenings, and I spend most of the weekend recovering and sleeping to prepare for another week of work. Have things always been like this?

Check Up Time!

Sounds like it's time for a check up. Have your GP check your iron levels and your thyroid levels (a simple blood test). Both anemia and hypothyroidism (under-active thyroid gland) can cause ongoing fatigue and inability to "recharge" despite adequate rest. Both of these medical conditions are very common and can be managed with medication or prescribed supplements. Then again, your problem may not be medical but it's easy enough to check. Good luck!!

Life’s always been hard work. You think it’s hard now? Try being a working stiff in 1910’s, 30’s, 50’s... what you’re experiencing is a walk In the park.

Options include -
Move to a small town
Change jobs and do something easier
Don’t work and live on welfare
Marry a successful guy

"Welcome to Central Industrial. We are the future..."
Not much different than assembly line work in the Good Old Days (that's 10-50+ years back from any given moment, usually). It's gotten more interesting since many other countries have gone through their own technology revolutions. Production is truly global now, and the robots are coming...
The existing order is not productive enough to put everyone on universal welfare. Almost but not quite. Maybe 10-20 more years of using humans as economic production machines.
I don't know what it will look like after that, but not the same.

Have u spoken with a competent Holistic Medical adviser ie. a Naturopath or Dr. of Traditional Chinese Medicine. When i was suffering similar to what u r describing i did that, plus the Naturopath linked me with a competent dentist to get some infection taken out of my gums & my life energies soon revitalized.

Actually, yes. Particularly for people who've been sold the bill of goods that selling out the nation to Oriental interests and gangsters is a positive step.

It’s hard at first but gets easier fast and the increase in energy is well worth it.
