Sometimes this is described also as feeling like an 8 yr old going on 80.

Considering what you have likely experienced in your life it would be normal to feel tired. It would be normal to feel many uncomfortable feelings including sometimes, numbness- like living dead.

The good thing is that though these feelings can be revisited from time to time, you can and will feel better with time, perhaps with support from others and maybe with help from a professional as well.

You still have so much of your life ahead of you and I am sure "overwhelmed" is a feeling you are likely to have. Hang in there. Your life is valuable and important just as you are, just for being YOU.

Please take care of yourself and make time to refresh yourself and let others into your life that support that for you. YOU ARE WORTH it and DESERVE to have a good life.

It can be really hard to look back and no normal or safe "family of origin" is there. Those losses will be felt at times and sometimes very acutely. Maybe that is not your situation, but through all the feelings you may have that make you tired, please TAKE CARE OF YOU. We wouldn't want to lose you.
