I Have Such Horrible Fatigue, Can You Please Give Me All of the Tips You Can Think of To Help Fight It?

I am 19 years old, i have not been working out in the past month but was tired even when i was working out daily (weights and cardio), I am healthy, as in no sicknesses or anything of the sort - not even allergic to anything. I don't eat fruit or drink milk, and not too much vegetables either really, BUT, I also DON'T have any fast food, pastry types of foods, cookies or soda or alcohol at all. I only have WATER and have a lot of meals through out the day. My meals are like sandwiches with tomatoes and turkey, lettuce and mayo. And my dinners are like brown rice with meat and vegetables and bread.  I'm not over weight at all, infact I have a 6-pack and am pretty fit. (not said to be brag but just because I know physique is an important factor). and I take my Multi-Vitamins every day

I AM NOT DEPRESSED AT ALL, i wake up every morning excited for the day. I sleep just fine, in fact I now am in bed about 11 hours because it takes me an hour to fall asleep and I AUTOMATICALLY wake up early in the morning around 8am; making me take another hour to fall back asleep to wake up around 10:30am. but I make sure I get my 8-9 hours of sleep in. . ALSO--> i work from the MINUTE I GET UP to the MINUTE I get tired, which is sometimes 4pm in the daytime or sometimes 7pm...When I say work i mean MENTALLY, doing a lot of homework for college. (i take ONLINE CLASSES), so I'm really sitting a lot and mentally figuring things out. That's my life. Yet I know to take 10-15 min. breaks every hour or so when I work. I WENT TO THE DOCTORS and got my blood work done, everything was fine!!! along with URINE TESTS, everything was fine!!!!

So I ask yyou to please give me all the tips and advice you can think of, this is really stopping me from getting things done to the point where I might fail my clases, regardless, it's just stopping me from living period; I feel paralized hoenstly, i feel paralyzed and it sucks.

PLEASE HELP...PLEASE HELP...PLEASE>>>>>HELP!!!! thank you so much.

Staying healthy and fit doesn't just mean doing the exercise regularly, being conscious on your diet and not being sick at all.  While I was reading, it seems like your life has been programmed from the moment you wake up to the time you sleep.  Have you reflected on this already?  Please don't get me wrong - there is absolutely nothing wrong in planning your activities.  Just don't forget to have fun and enjoy.

Sometimes, because we are too conscious on things that we think is right for us, we tend to forget what is it that we really want.  Are you happy with what you are doing?  What is it that you dream most your life would be?  

I personally believe that if you are happy with what you are doing, you can never get tired because you look forward to doing it everyday.  Inject some stuffs that you love to do aside from those you have mentioned.  Take time to reflect on this.  Get out of that comfort zone and explore.  You're still young and there are a lot of good things outside that zone in store for you.  Good Luck!

Ok you definitely know what you are talking about because I definitely am programmed from wake to shut-eye. I do this to get as much work done as i possibly can because I have a certain goal that I'm trying to reach which requires a lot of mental work. And I even took time off school for this goal. The goal itself is irrelevant. But anyways I wake up every day EXCITED for the day, I kid you not. so that should rule out the psychological aspect, i get excited because I know that with the work I get done every day, I become THAT much closer to my "goal".

But yes I have reflected on the fact that I'm working working all day, and i don't know I don't mind it that much, I am on a time crunch so when I go out, it's not that often but I'm not worried because my life won't be like this forever, the point is, is that my mind is definitely on the money if you know what I'm saying. Therefor I have drive every day and am ultimately happy with that i'm doing.

tell me what you think!!! thanks again for your reply.. much apprecitaed!!
I am glad that you are happy with what you do.  Fatigue sometimes is affected by the emotional aspect of life.  How is your relationship with the people around you?  

On my personal understanding, as what we have both agreed, your life has been programmed by you.  With that program, how much time is being spent to satisfy human's emotional needs?

I understand also that you are focused in earning money.  There is absolutely no problem with that.  I actually appreciate you for the drive you have in meeting your goals.  However, we should also remember that we also need to have a break.  Maybe it is about time also that you treat yourself with some activities that would relax your muscles such as going to the spa or massage (though you already do exercise, a massage would relax those muscles and would rejuvinate you).  Have you ever tried this?  Are you a big worrier?  Do you always worry about things?  This could also contribute to fatigue.  Take time to relax sometimes because you deserve to be happier.
