- physical or mental weariness
It’s one of those words, and the feelings that accompany it, that I imagine anyone who suffers from mental illness is all too aware of. It is a tiredness that transcends the mere physical and mental, and seeps into the emotional and (if you are so inclined to believe in such) the spiritual. It is a weariness that no amount of sleep will rectify, but that a lack of sleep will exacerbate.
Even as I type this, I am afflicted by a long familiar lassitude.
