I sleep all day and night and wake up feeling tired and worn out!!!:frowning: I had a miserable break up with my boyfriend couple of days ago… the purpose of my existence has now gone away and all I can do is miss him….We were in a relationship for 3 long years and it’s like the person I know now is an alien….
He was a handsome guy I met at the university and initially, we spent all our time together… There were 7 people in the circle including me and my bae. We hung out together all the time at a friend’s place. But everything changed suddenly…I was hunting for a job to keep up to my expenses. I appeared for a couple of interviews and ultimately got selected at this café… I had to join in a week and so I was planning my schedule accordingly as I was also preparing for my LSATs too. As days passed, I got busier with work at the restaurant and studies, while the others did hang out all the time….
I guess that’s where it all fell apart…My boyfriend and I met just once a week and that too was hard because I was the one chasing him. Some days, he wouldn’t pick my call or would just give lame excuses :frowning:((( I could sense that we were losing the grip over our connection.
I decided to face the problem and went to meet him at his place, but again Mr. Cheater was out of sight and contact. And a few days later, I found out from a common friend that he was already hanging out with a girl from our group. After connecting the dots, I understood why he was never reachable. I never noticed or may be I was too stupid to look out that he was cheating on me. I broke up with him and all the people in the gang. And I miss him terribly now. It feels like a part of me is taken away.
I just want to sleep all day….my curtains are drawn and I love making the room really dark and just wrap myself in the comforter. I just don’t want to wake up and think about him and my future. Everything just seems too hard. It is as if I have nothing to look forward to when I wake up. Even when I sleep for 14 hours straight, I feel like I would just want to go straight back to my bed. I want to get rid of this terrible feeling and I don’t know how to.
Many days I just end up having pizza in bed. I know that I may be in depression but right now, I just don’t care. Has this happened to any of you? Even when I sleep so much, I feel uneasy and exhausted all the time, as if there is no mental peace.

Everyone should realize the importance of sleep to ensure longevity of life else you can face strokes or other sickness even in younger ages.

“I now know why people see depression as the major cause of sleeping too much. My
mother is suffering from narcolepsy (as the idiot so called doctor says) and sleeps all
the time. I don’t even know if it is the presence of that disease anymore…
Mom and dad met with a terrible accident last year. She survived and we lost dad and
since then she is living a life that holds no purpose. She wakes up, eats a little and
goes back to sleep. And this is the routine she has been following for almost 11
months now. There are days when she does not even rest for a single minute and
keeps talking all day as if nothing is wrong. The other day we went out to meet some
family friends and she was all jolly the whole time. Suddenly after coming back
home, mom started calling someone, that someone to our surprise was dad. She did
not have a clue about what had happened last year. I took her to multiple doctors but
nothing helped. It’s like we lost our mom too in that accident. I really feel like doing
something to get the happy version of her back but I am so helpless… I hope no
person on this earth go through a trauma like this ever!!”

Hey Kaitlin, I feel terrible to hear such a thing. Sometimes, the loss of a dear one can actually become loss of life. I can feel the pain that you must be going through. I guess there cannot be a direct solution for this. But maybe your little steps will get her back to being normal someday. I am sure you are trying many things and I would like to share some of the tips that helped my friend recover faster. Moving to a new place, socialising or meeting friends, exercising, meditation, yoga, music therapy, and other engaging activities would help.

There are many factors here depending on work regime, health, habits like alcohol consumption or mood.

Alcoholics face such problems the most because they usually end up drinking at the time they usually hit the bed, which then affects your sleep pattern. Its like dehydration to the body which puts you to sleep longer.

Work regime you can’t say exactly. I would call it work stress but then that’s about mental health in all which is important as well. Even mental health is related to getting a good sleep.

Sleeping 14 hours and waking still feeling sleepy, especially when you have had a major upheaval in your life, can cause situational depression. Keeping your living space darkened, and going back to bed can just make the problem worse. If this has been going on for more than two weeks, it is time to make a change. See your doctor, and tell him or her exactly what you are experiencing, and for how long. Write it down in two or three short statements or questions, to take with you to your visit, if you think you will not have the courage to tell the doctor this problem. This always helps me. Do not feel embarrassed or shy about sharing this. VERY short-term treatment with antidepressants can really help. The mildest, lowest-dose can really help. Maybe you will only have to take it for two or three months, then your doctor can help you wean off it. DO NOT TAKE ANYONE ELSE’S MEDICINE, however. Each antidepressant acts differently in the body.
If you cannot see a doctor, check out herbal teas at a health food store. Ginseng has helped me. Also, RESIST THE URGE TO KEEP YOUR ROOM DARK ALL DAY. I know the sunlight might make you feel exposed, or as though the rest of the world goes by happily while you suffer, but open your curtains, lift the shades as soon as you wake up. Sunlight is invigorating, and we all need it. It helps get our body, mind and spirit back in sync with the world, and that is what you need.
Drink a lot of good, clean water to stay hydrated. Eat good, healthy food. Start with one piece of your favorite fruit or vegetable. Stretch, do yoga, try slow deep breathing. Read books with encouraging words and thoughts. Write about how you feel, but don’t dwell on it. Write as though you were talking to a dear friend who is feeling like you do now. What would you say to him or her? How would you tell him or her to make a positive change to feel better? BE YOUR OWN BEST FRIEND, and follow your own advice.
Soon you will start to feel better. Allow yourself to feel better. You have gone through a terrible loss, but, like a broken bone or a cut or scrape, your body WANTS to heal, and you will. When you do heal, you will have a powerful gift of knowledge and experience to help you if you ever feel this way again.
