Some of the books I've read have claimed that too little sleep can contribute to mania, and too much sleep can cause you to be depressed.. so yes, it's possible.
13 hours is probably way too much. Drink a cup of coffee and go outside!

haha coffee has been drunk and i've been outside. i feel more mobile but i feel deeply sad and slow inside. its a weird feeling.
but also i sleep a lot becuase i have fibromyalgia and too little sleep gives me pain.

I have fibromyalgia, too, and I never know when I'm gonna have a bad flareup. Lately, I've been sleeping what seems like way too much. I'm not sure if I'm sleeping too much because I'm depressed or because I'm having a flare and need to sleep this much. Go figure.

Feel better soon.
