It's awful when you feel so weary, and everything is an effort. Plan time for yourself, but consider you may need a quick medical check up.

Think of the obvious; are you looking after yourself, eating regularly and sleeping regularly? Have you been checked for anemia, or thyroid problems. We can often think its a spiritual/psychological problem, when sometimes we need to rule out the physical first.

If it turns out not to be physical; be kind to yourself, apply the same sort of reasoning you would to a friend to yourself, and comfort yourself as you would someone you love. Do nice things for you and ask those around you to do so to.

All these things probably sound trite and obvious, but also notice how people here have come to support you and know that you are not alone.
