Im sure there is a medical explanation for this :rolleyes: ....


I worked 70 hours in 6 days and dont have enough day off so although the next days are only 5 or 4 days straight but my body dont get enough rest bec.of the reason I have to do the chores and run errand.And because of lack of rest I noticed that there are times I am not in myself,or I dont think straight or less focus.My body can only get 6 hour of sleep on working days and 8 hours sleep on day offs ,although my body is active again but there are times my brain is slow to respond of making descision or less focus.I take vitamins for my immune system and cardiovascular system but I dont have vitamins for brain power...Stress is also part of my job aside from stress with paper works for my son.

It's nice to earn money but I think it's important to try to find the right balance. All work and no play isn't really sustainable for the long haul. If there is a particularly stubborn financial situation you need to get through right now, then good that you are able to pick up the necessary hours at work to help you through, but maybe you need to look at your priorities a little bit.

Shone Im with Gregg - you are hitting it too hard.. Yes i know having the money is good, the boy coming soon, etc but if you get sick or crash then the money stops.. It would be wiser to cut back your hours so you can make sure you will be doing it for the long haul and not crash on the rocks - so to speak..

That is a good question Gregg..I dont know? I can't answer that ,right now Im still aiming for our dream.I did, took 5 days rest on my birthday that was my bday gift for myself so I visited doctors to check my health it was 2 consecutive days,monday and tuesday and then Wednesday was painting that big hotdog for my husband business which took me 12 hours to finish and then Friday was my complete rest and the next time I know my 5 days was over. Im trying to figure out which is the top priorities but unfortunately everything is top.I need to pay health insurance ,retirement,send money home,pay some bills.With my husband included in my insurance I need to pay 200 every paycheck so 400 a month.And no complain about it bec.although its expensive it also gives us Health saving to use to pay for the deductables.My husband hurt himself last week and I was so worried that he might undergone some surgery bec.of his knee.I called the orthopedic doctor and set an appointment for him.Im so glad I have a job that pays the insurance in times like this OMG its very expensive just for an MRI...its hard but its a commitment and a responsibility.My husband is doing his best too,and to be one of the top of Austin's best coffee trailer in Yelp,we can see we are heading in the right direction.He also work 6 days every week and on his one and only day off on Sundays he need to do some errand for his business too.

So you think there is no vitamins for Brain power :P

You said you already take Vitamins, but look into taking the ones below in those you regularly take if you are not out in the sun enough or do not eat enough of the foods to get the quantities needed.

Vitamin D deficiency, blood tests can see if a person is low on D. I have been found to need D by my doctor and take 1000 D-3 twice a day and now blood tests show my level is normal. Probably good to have yours checked if you feel run down.

Below are also Vitamins for being tired.

Iron is an important supplement for women to take due to their monthly visitor

Vitamin C

Omega Fish Oil
B complex with Folic acid


Best is always to get enough rest. Posted Image Feel better soon.

Im taking B complex too.So far BP is always in normal range,although when I had an infection I had a irregular heart rate which we often called tachy.Well its normal findings tho,when you have infection heart rate will sometimes irregular but right now Im back to normal rythm.I think part of this is fatigue.I tried to eat veggies as best as I can and aslo bought those vegetable vitamin supplement and fruit vitamin supplement..
