Young businessman standing over a young businesswoman sleeping on a couchIn a word: Kids? USA Today, National Public Radio and other venues have brought up a Center for Disease Control Study that 10 percent of men  and 15 percent of women aged 18-44 are exhausted. Here’s the USA Today article.

Most of the articles about the study attribute the fatigue to child-rearing. I think it’s interesting that the CDC put out the graph below that NPR used,Tired women

I don’t see anything in that graph except that women are permanently more tired than men.

The comments on Scott Hensley’s article on the NPR page “Annals Of The Obvious: Women Way More Tired Than Men” are worth reading.

Draw your own conclusions. I think it’s time for a nap.
