Why am I so tired?

For the last several weeks, I've been very tired and prone to napping during the day. This doesn't seem to affect my ability to fall asleep at night. Before you suggest sleep apnea: yep, I have it. I use my CPAP as directed - I breathe so much better with it on that it's no hassle for me to use it (even during my frequent naps). More details below: [more inside]

Constantly tired: like depression without the hopelessness. What gives?

I'm constantly tired to the point of not being able to get out of bed until early afternoon, napping frequently and generally feeling lethargic, apathetic and kind of nauseous. I finished a contract job 5 weeks ago & assumed my tiredness was a result of wrapping up the project. Then I went on a very chilled 3 week holiday and put the exhaustion on return down to jet lag. I've seen my doctor and my bloodwork is fine. My diet is decent, minimal alcohol, one coffee a day, so I'm fairly sure this is a psychological thing. I take an SSRI for anxiety but was actually talking to my doctor about tapering off as I've been really well for the past year. Physically, it feels like the bout of depression I had four years ago, but my mood isn't low (more flat) and I don't feel hopeless, just like everything's a massive effort, even helpful things like exercise and socialising. Obviously, YANMD, but has anyone else been there? What can I do to shake this?

Feeling exhausted?

I'm curious if anyone else has a specific place in their body where they feel tired. If I'm quite underslept, I have what I believe are standard feelings of leaden limbs and blurry, burning eyes, but I also have a specifically localized feeling that's hard to describe, in the back of my throat, in the pharynx. It just feels thick and very, very tired back there. I'm not sure why I feel exhaustion in this manner--can anyone speculate or enlighten me?

Energy drain...

Every afternoon starting from 2 to about 4 p.m. I find myself exhausted beyond belief. I need tips or solutions to keep my energy up during those two hours so that I can actually *do* things instead of just enter some brain/body fog state where I can't even spell my own name right. [more inside]
