I’m a 16 year old girl and for a long time ive been sleeping excessively, anytime I can. Normally I sleep for over 3 hours in the day no matter what I’d done during the day. And 10 at night, For example, if I got home at 4pm after school, I’d be tired from 4.30-6 so I wouldn’t do anything productive at all, then end up giving in at 6 and sleep till 9 or 10. By the time I wake up I’ll still feel drousy because ive slept for so long, and I feel down because its another day where I’ve slept for hours, and its something I hate doing. Even typing about it, its got me choked up. My family tell me I should just snap out of it and stop sleeping, and ive tried telling them its a lot harder for me than that, but they don’t understand. Tonight, I realized its got too much, I set a timer for say, an hour, but it never works, I’ll just turn it off and sleep again, and when it happened today, my mum jut started shouting at me for sleeping, because she wants me to stop, but she doesn’t understand how hard it is for me to stop. If I don’t sleep, I feel lifeless and like I have no energy to do anything, but if I do sleep, I still feel lifeless and as if ive got no energy. Its really effecting me mentally, im quite a healthy person, I eat healthy food and exercise, but sleeping so much has really stopped me from doing a lot of things, this includes school work and revision for important exams. As a result of this, my grades have fallen a lot, and its all building up. I want to stop this before it gets too late, I sit my gcses in 6 or 7 months and I need to do well to achieve my goal. I just feel like I cant be bothered, I have no motivation, and I know it sounds bad but if I could choose between living and not living, I would choose not living, because its so much easier, I feel like im doing no good at the moment and really have been searching for inspiration, but I cant find any. I used to think it was simply that im a teenager and that im lazy but looking round at people my age, theyre all doing fine, none of them are as bad as I am at the moment, it just makes me feel extrememly un happy and I don’t want to go to the doctor because I don’t know if it is worth it and even if it was, my parents wouldnt understand as they’ve got their own problems at the moment.
