I'm pooped...

And I'll bet you're pooped, your loved ones are pooped and your kids are pooped and your pups are pooped. Seems we're a world of "poop-out" people & pups. I don't know how that all happened and for a while I thought it was just me....I seem to always be tired. When I wake up, I'm already tired. To think of actually being awake & functioning until bedtime, just the thought makes me tired...

I was in 7-11 the other morning getting coffee - my morning caffeine fix. I used to drink really weak coffee, with artificial sweetener and artificial creamer to give me artificial energy. But that doesn't seem to work anymore. And, it seems, it's not working for anyone else either. Along with the creamer, they are now carrying what they call a "Shot" - complete with the warning not to consume more than 2 a day! Yep, almost pure caffeine - to add to your morning coffee. In the cooler, there's a whole array of "energy drinks" that anyone can buy. And they do - young kids in school are needing to be more awake. "Rock Star" and "Red Bull" and "Full Throttle"...What's up with that? What are we doing now that we didn't before? What should we be doing that we aren't now? It's really worth some thought. I don't have any answers. I'm too tired to think right now.

You are right about being tired all the time. I wake up tired and never seem to wake up. They say exercise helps to rev you up but I am just too tired to even think about exercising. I watched an exercise video last night...does that count? Probably not because it just made me more tired and then I was depressed at looking at those way to perky women! Ended up being depressed and tired- nope, exercise does not do it for me:>))
