Since I was about 16 I have always felt tired. Some days better than others. I always struggled to wake up and even when I woke up I struggled to get out of the bed. This caused a lot of problems in my job and my home life with four children.
Now I am fifty six and have a pension so not as much of a problem. My children are older and I don't have much responsibilities. I live on my own most of the time meaning I go to bed and get up when I want.
The problem is, I have four grown up children. Two of them got a lot of my genes including "the lazy gene" and struggle the same way I did.
When I was young I just thought I was a lazy sod. I even pretended I was on the beer when I was late for work as that was more acceptable back then than just admitting I was tired and had sleep issues.
My ex wife looks down on my son and daughter with the same problem. I know they have the same issues I have and their lives are suffering because of it. Their self worth is also affected because of it.
Later on in life I sought help for this issue but tests showed nothing. I wish I could find out if other people suffer with this issue and if anything can be done about it. Not for myself as I have it easy now. I am sure my son and daughter are not just lazy, I'm convinced I passed on "the lazy gene" . My other two daughters got more of my ex wife's traits and are morning larks.
