Having a big problem lately that is really killing me all around. I am sleepy all day, bags under my eyes, minimal motivation or appetite, then when I lie down for sleep, my mind starts racing.
I always "go to bed" 9-10 hours before I have to get up. I take ZMA and melatonin, and tried chamomile tea in addition to that tonight. But I just couldn't get to sleep.
I'm pretty pressured by school and other than lifting, I don't have many things in my life which are exciting. I haven't been having great gym progress lately, plateauing every couple of weeks, getting in a crap mood after my workouts for no reason, even if I hit a nice PR. Caffeine doesn't work and I stopped having it.
I haven't taken a week off in 3-4 months now but last time I took a week off (keeping my diet still good) I lost strength.
I feel like I have just been depressed for the entire year, everything tires me out, I am restless. No interest in my old hobbies, I even have been losing interest in lifting because of my slow progress! And no interest in people to speak of
