Well, I'm a healthy sixteen year old, but for the past five months or so, I've been feeling increasingly tired. In the past month, it's gotten so bad, I've had to stay home or go into school late some days. In the afternoons after school, I sleep for usually three hours and about nine or ten hours at night. Despite all of this sleeping, I'm still exhausted constantly. Coffee or anything like that just exacerbates it.
I've gone to my physician and she ran blood tests for lyme disease, mono, anemia, and a battery of other things. She referred me to a therapist, thinking it was a mental issue. The therapist told me flat out that nothing was wrong with me mentally. I'm terrified that this will just keep going on, so if you have an answer at all, please share it with me.
