Q. I’m 68-years-old and I’m tired a lot. What do you think could be causing this?
For starters, I never make a personal diagnosis; I’m not qualified. I’m a journalist, not a physician. If you have persistent fatigue, I recommend you see a doctor for a check-up.
I suffer from fatigue that I know is caused by seasonal allergies. When the pollen and mold counts are high, I lose energy and doze off during the day.
Figuring out why you are fatigued is very difficult because there are so many possible causes.

Q. My 17-year-old daughter has become so difficult to deal with this past year. She is a senior in high school and is all set to begin college this fall.

“Adolescence” was panelist Mike Daniels’ immediate response. “That is what is going on and it is pretty normal,” he said.
