I think exhaustion is so much worse than being plain tired. It's like saying you have the flu when really it's the common cold (or man flu!) Of course you feel crap, snotty and sore nose, bunged up and a headache. But it's not until you've actually had flu do you realise how much worse it is, a cold is just annoying in comparison.

I've been guilty of it, over exaggerating symptoms or how I feel. But I've been there now, I know the difference. I wont use the word exhaustion now unless it's warranted. But then again it's a long word to use when talking is an effort!

But what do you think? What exaggerations annoy you?
