Mental exhaustion

I haven’t been feeling well for a while now, I’ve been waking up with headaches that last the day, i was feeling nauseated, i am so exhausted yet am getting at least 11 hours sleep, i felt like my brain stopped working. After 2 weeks of felling like this I finally went to the doctor. After asking me loads of questions he diagnosed me with mental exhaustion. I had never heard of it before. The definition of mental exhaustion/fatigue is Mental fatigue is a temporary (does not last) trouble or problem. Mental fatigue may make it hard to pay attention or focus on a task. You may feel mental fatigue after doing work that takes a lot of mental energy. You may feel mental fatigue if you feel a lot of stress for a long period of time.

Because I’m working 2 jobs and studying in 5 different colleges my brain went into over drive and couldn’t keep up with me so in a way it felt like it had stopped working. I was given a vitamin b tonic to help me, i was told to try to relax, meditate and just unwind.

I’ve been trying my best the tonic is horrendous but I’m taking it, for two days i didn’t attend college or study. I spent 1 day in bed just relaxing.

Since then I have been going for walks in the evening with Asif, doing 20 minutes of meditation a day.

I’m feeling a lot better now thank god i caught up on some of my college work today and I finished 2 assignments.

I’m in bed now watching sister sister on Netflix it brings back lovely memories i used to watch it when I was younger.

I’m nice and chilled and planning to start taking better care of myself
