Hi, I have never spoke to a doctor before! I am a 35 year old male, This year especially for the last 4 months I have had a problem. Its hard to describe but I will do my best. I cant stop sleeping and its taking over my life. I feel like the life has been sucked out of me. My sleeping pattern is also all messed up. I love being awake on a night and not through the day. I have always been like this but 4 months ago things have got worse than ever. I can sleep easily for 16 hours no problem and want to sleep more, but keep dragging myself out of bed as I am worried about loosing weight from not eating enough and also want to help myself but I cant snap out of it this time. i am a strong person but this time it has got me! A year ago I was in amazing physical condition and trained a minimum of 5 times a week with more exercise on top but last year around november this problem started and stopped me from being able to train, but over the last year this problem has escalated, the last 4 months being the worst. I feel o.k just so tired and low on energy. I dont smoke or drink and eat as well as I can, I understand diet from my times in exercise training. It sounds strange but I feel like I should be in hibernation. I really do! It has stopped me having a social life too! I have read about SAD disease and did consider getting a light box. I do have friends and family to talk to but nobody understands even though they try too, I don't even understand and I am a well educated person. I have read about depression and although I do sometimes get a little depressed as most probably do I am sure this is something more. I do not like the idea of taking medicines and fear if I go to the doctor I will just be given pills to mask the problem but I want to understand and get to the cause of the problem. I do not seem to have a life because of all this sleep. Sorry if I have not explained things the best but its hard to explain. I just know something is not right compared to how other people are, maby there is no problem and I am just different? I have come online as I wanted someone to talk to me rather than offer me medication as thats all my doctor would do! I can go into more detail if necessary! Thank you!
