- Tired-This is what a person experiences when they stay up late, have to get up early, or combine the two. Maybe you had a bad night's sleep or bad dreams.
- Really Tired-This is where I was when I was first diagnosed with Fibro and where I think I am now back to. I can only be awake for about 5 or 6 hours before I need a nap or I'm passing out in my chair. The other day I was cleaning house just to stay awake. And I was vacuuming, a pretty physical activity, and my eyes were closing, my head nodding off, because I literally couldn't stay awake. There are days that all I want to do is sleep. I don't care if I see anyone or eat anything. I just want to sleep.
- Exhaustion-This is where I was a few weeks ago. This is probably where insomniacs live. You're so tired that you couldn't sleep if you wanted to. I don't know how anyone functions here, it's so dangerous. You don't sleep at night. You're tired during the day, but don't nap, you don't fall asleep at your desk. You're a zombie.

Living Life At Half Speed
I've decided there are 3 levels of sleepiness. There's tired, really tired, and exhausted.
