I may actually have some sort of mild Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, if that sort of thing can happen in degrees, because my whole life I've dealt with bouts of exhaustion.

Wow I definitely have this too I think, I'm seriously tired constantly, no matter what I do, how much I slept, etc.

mbillie,

Well at least I have good company. Seriously, during my annual Palm Desert golf trip every day goes like this: golf, nap, pool time, nap, dinner/bar, nap, after hours suite. Three naps required just to get through the day, most of the others soldier on without needing any (and presumably without the aid of cocaine).

Hmm, could your tiredness be something lack-of-exercise/bad diet related?

A move a co-worker of mine used to do is just to drive to a nearby park or otherwise large parking lot and then take a nap in the car.

No on the exercise, very possibly on the diet. But my whole life? I think even at my very healthiest I wasn't having this problem.

Also, this country is so retarded with the "nap = lazy" thing. The links/pic that El D posted are pretty much irrefutable evidence as to their value in so many ways (if executed reasonably, of course). But the stigma is far greater than the facts at this point and who knows if we as a society will ever overcome it.

Is leaving your office an option? A few times I would leave and nap in a garden bench across the street or travel to the post office to pick up a package.

One of my old coworkers has this worked out perfectly.

Basically, you want to time it to coincide with your lunch break. For maximum time, wait for the boss to leave for lunch. Immediately leave after. Get your lunch, then just park your car in a nearby parking lot or other shady area and snooze in a food-induced coma.

Your boss could think you left right as he arrived - permitting up to nearly a 2 hour lunch+nap combo.
