    Being lethargic is a state of mind. Well, and body. You want to move it, move it.

  2. I can relate to this word, I’ve often felt dull and lethargic so now I can say I feel kinda hebetude.

    Well I can say I learned something new today. I work in mental health and will carry this word with me to describe some patients!

  4. I hope my attitude makes my hebetude state disappear. Not sure if that is used correctly…but I don’t want that word to be used to describe me ever!
