16 Memes That Might Make You Laugh If You're Always Tired

If you’re living with chronic health challenges, chances are being tired is a part of your everyday life. Whether fatigue, insomnia or unrestful sleep are symptoms of your illness, or you’re simply exhausted from dealing with doctors’ appointments and stress on top of your other day-to-day responsibilities, being tired is something most in our chronic illness community can relate to.

So we rounded up some memes that might make you laugh if you often feel tired. Always feeling exhausted isn’t funny, but these memes are.
