Went to dr. last week to find out why I feel tired all the time. they drew blood, got some of the results back to day. so far everything is fine. the thyroid has yet to come back. if it is negative the dr. wants me to have a sleep study done.
he thinks the reason could be i'm not getting the deep r.e.m. sleep a person needs. the reason for this could be because of a sleep disorder, or even apnea. if its not apnea and some other disorder the dr.'s thinking it could be because i'm fat. he told me that being fat does affect a person's sleep. he asked if i snore, i told him my wife says i do, really loud. he thinks it might be because my breathing is being cut off at night so my body wakes itself up so i can regain my breathing thus i'm not getting the deep r.e.m. sleep i need.
i asked him what treatment options are there for this. he said quite simply lose weight. i then asked him if i feel tired from not getting enough sleep and rest how can i possibly go to the Y and exercise to lose weight? he said you'll have to force yourself to do so if you want to get the sleep you need.
so heres where you good folks come in. I need some positive motivation so i can force myself to do this. words of encouragement, etc.
i'm still waiting for one more blood test to come back then i'll probably have the sleep study done. but i need to get a start on this right away.
i do not need to know how to eat and exercise properly, i already know all of that. its putting the exercise into practice and use is what i need help with.
maybe others here who are fat is suffering from the same problem, or there are those that need to lose weight for other reasons. well lets help each other.
has anyone else ever had a problem like this? what were the solutions to solve it so you could get sleep & rest you need?
