-Exhausted after physical exertion.
Middle English past participle of forswinke, “exhausted from physical exertion,” most commonly in the performance of household chores. Terms with similar meanings included dwang and snool, “to oppress or exhaust one’s vital energies by overwork,” while tireling denoted a person who was easily fatiqued by physical exertion. The sixteenth-century toilful was used of a hardworking individual or one who was characterized by toiling, and the related verb thripple meant “to toil ceaselessly.” Titteravating was an early dialectic variant in eastern England for “tiresome.
Used in a sentence:

GoFundMe REFUNDS DONATIONS FROM SCAM... GoFundMe has refunded more than $400,000 to 14,000 donors who were scammed into helping what they thought was a homeless veteran from Philadelphia. The people behind the scam, Johnny Bobbitt, Mark D’Amico and Katelyn McClure, face charges of theft by deception and conspiracy to commit theft of deception. Officials say they falsely claimed in a viral GoFundMe post in 2017 that Bobbitt, who is homeless gave his last $20 to McClure so she could get gas when stranded in Philadelphia. Bobbitt sued D'Amico and McClure in August, claiming they were using the GoFundMe money as their “personal piggy bank.”
