I am tired. All the time. Not sure why. When I get tired, I can’t hardly stay conscious. When I’m in the car for more than 25 minutes, I get so drowsy that I start to involuntarily fall asleep. Regardless of how cold the car is, how loud the music is, I just straight lose it. I’ll wake up after a split second, but I have to pull over so I don’t kill myself.
When I’m at the office, working, I have to listen to college kids rehearse a script at me for about 8 hours. When they’re practicing, I can hardly keep my eyes open. I can’t think straight hardly because I’m so tired.
If I get less than 7 1/2 hours of sleep, I am in this state all day. While I was away at college, I decided to wake up every morning at 6:30, regardless of what time I went to bed. I usually fell asleep right around 10:30 to get 8 hours of sleep. After about two weeks, something incredibly bizarre happened. I would set my alarm the night before, and then wake up at 10, with the alarm turned off. I would have no recollection of waking up or turning my alarm off, but somehow it would end up off, and I would wake up hours later than I wanted. This bizarre occurrence went on for about a week and a half before I started waking up to my alarm again.
Don’t even get me started on food comas. I eat a chipotle burrito and I have to hibernate for at least two hours before I am cognizant again.
I literally have no fucking clue what is going on. My dad has offered to get me a prescription of Providgial, a mental clarity/focus drug, but I have no desire to take any prescription meds.
Part of me things it might be some kind of food allergy that just makes me drowsy all day, but I don’t know. Has anyone ever seen or experienced anything like this?
