I am literally tired all the time, is there something wrong with me?

I am literally tired from the second I wake up to the second I go to sleep. I can't stay awake in my classes and I am doing poorly because of it. My foster mom thinks I am just growing, but I'm not convinced. Everyone my age (15) can't be this tired all the time. Right? Or am is it just in my head? Thank you!

My sister was like that, and it turns out she has mild anemia. You should go to the doctor.

I'm the same way because I'm nocturnal, literally. I never get sleep unless it's a weekend. Even if I'm very lucky and I do get sleep, I'm still tired the next day merely because I have no body clock. Maybe this is you, as well.

Anemia, depression, medications, improper diet, lack of B vitamins.anorexia , bulimia, lack of exercise. So many reasons. Speak to your doctor. He should do bloodwork.

If you are in foster care your foster parents need to seek medical attention for you.
Talk to the school nurse about it and maybe she can help get you some medical attention.
Are you getting enough sleep? At least 8 hours per day. Are you getting enough protein in your daily diet? You may have cat scratch fever or possibly a bug bite of some sort that you haven't noticed yet. It could be any number of things.
