Vitamin D3 deficiency.
Never thought I would hear that as a result from my blood work.
I didn’t have the insomnia issue, quite the opposite in fact. I have been experiencing hair loss, but I have psoriasis on my scalp (and more recently in my ears), so I am used to some hair loss. I have depression, but I didn’t feel hopeless or feel like I WANTED to stay in bed all day. I was just SO TIRED. Sleeping for 10 hours was doing nothing. I still wanted to sleep. *Sigh*
I am so very thankful for my BRF Kara. She got me through my 18km run last weekend. We are a kickass team when we run together 🙂
When I was at the doctor’s office I was shocked that this was my result. I asked him if this could cause the extreme fatigue and excessive sleeping. He said yes.
He advised me to start Vitamin D3 supplements, 2000IU per day. I should start feeling an improvement in a couple of weeks, and hopefully feel completely better in a month.
I was relieved to be sure. I had myself thinking it was something awful. Overthinking is my specialty 😉
Pretty sure I’ve been a hot mess all week. I have been so tired I’ve wanted to cry, and I almost have on quite a few occasions.
Now, to reset and be thankful. I’ll be fine to complete training and run my half in May!!

I’m so glad it was something simple with an easy fix and not something scary. I was thinking of you this week and it’s great news that yo can still do the half!
Thank you!! I am so happy I can keep going, and so happy it was something simple. Relief!!!
