 Im sleeping a lot and if i didnt have a job i would be sleeping all the time i was told that im sleeping my life away because i sleep during the day. i dont like diagnosing myself but i did some research and i heard that sleeping to much is a sign of depression. im not happy with my job but in this economy i have to just suck it up before i get a more convinent job (sorry if i spelled that wrong lol). seriously i dont know whats wrong with me, and i want to hang out but because i dont drive is a problem for me as well of why i care less to go hang out my life is just boring to me and i want to do somthing about it. its bad that i cant really hang out with my family because its somtimes no fun, madd drama wit moms , and its to innocent because its a family gathering. ive been innocent all my life starting at.....

i haven't been on a date

i haven't had my first kiss and also

the only time i was able to doll up and go somewhere without my fam is when it was my prom

(i know its a hot mess lol)

even though im a home body i would like to have fun without my mother or little sisters around and do crazy things without commiting any crimes you know

Sleeping during the day is a sign of depression, and the fact that you aren't having any fun is also a sign. I highly recommend you see a counselor. Talk to them and get things straight. You can do this if you try. How old are you? Sounds like you still live at home.

I hope that you feel better soon.

Set regular sleeping hours and stick to it. Your body will come around to the schedule. I used to either sleep alot or hardly at all. Things have gotten better, but you have to change your mind set. Hopefully you will make some new friends and find something that interest you, that in itself will give you more energy.

Take Care,

I think by catching your depression early, you can get a grip on it. I hope that you can see a counselor. If not, there are many good books on depression. It is nice after all, to know what you are up against. There are tons of good self help books. I started out that way, but ended up in counseling. I actually like it.

Currently, I am having the same problem. I don't have a job though; creates more time for me to sleep. So, I think to start off you might try picking a hobby that has some degree of spontaneity but make sure it has ties to your values. For instance, I took up biking (and then put it back down and took it back up) because I know that the fuel reserves have hit peak, the damage cause by pollution, and the wars related to it. This gives me exercise, sunlight, quiet time for reflection, and completely wears me out so that when I do sleep I think that I deserve it.

Another thing is that you need to speak to first your most trusted family member and have them provide support for you when you tell everyone that you want/need to be more independent. The advice about trying to force a regular sleep pattern was meant to be helpful, I think. However, this can be very difficult. I would also consider a change in diet.

I hope you wake up soon.

This was one of the main things that flagged up my depression to my Doctor. Go speak to your doctor and maybe they can help you, advise you on what you can do. I found that once I knew I had depression and knew that was why I was constantly sleeping it was easier for me to try and get a routine. I knew sleeping made me feel worse, so I set my alarm to get up at the same time every day and go to bed the same time every night.

Tell your family you want to do something fun, arrange a day out, lunch, shopping whatever takes your fancy. It will probably help you feel a bit more alive.

Hope this helps

Yes, very good advice. Get moving even if you do not feel like it. Routine in bedtime is very wise.
