Sleep drives me insane

It feels like that’s just what I was born to do is sleep. My body craves sleep more than anything else it seems like. That’s why I really don’t like going on any meds w sedating effects because they never just last the night they last well into the next day too. It’s so so difficult. If I don’t take my modafinil I don’t function, I have no idea how I made it though college off that med.

Even now I feel so loopy despite getting a solid 8 hours sleep last night. It’s immensely frustrating. I go to sleep and just dream and dream, one vivid dream after the other. A voice was taunting me last night saying I put sleep above all else in my life including loved ones. I hate that deep down I feel it’s true. I’m arranging my whole lifestyle and future career around being able to sleep as much as possible for crying out loud.

Off medication I can sleep all day long and still go for more sleep. Yesterday I was asleep most of the day and basically just woke up for meals. I slept from 1 am to 2 pm, then had breakfast, then was asleep until 5 pm, had dinner, went to sleep until 8:30 pm. I was still sleepy and went to sleep for the night just 4 hours later.

I bet you have a lot of dreams if you sleep that long

Hi @Anna

It’s okay to sleep a lot. Don’t feel guilty to take care of yourself. If you want to sleep, just go and sleep.

In the future, maybe do some exercises if you are not. You will feel more energized.

It’s okay to do whatever your body needs. (((hugs))) don’t worry too much and ignore the voices!
