wanting to sleep all the time!

Posted by Give me my bed and pillow! on January 05, 2002 at 23:39:26:

I can go to bed at 10 pm, wake up at 11 am, go back to bed at 2pm till about 4 pm and still go back to sleep that night at 10:30pm! All I want to do is sleep! My husband is getting mad at me because he wants to do things on the weekends, but all I want to do is catch up on my sleep since I work all week. I am not a morning person, so getting up at 6:30 every moring is very hard. My eyes want to shut frequently during the day. When I get home at 6pm every weeknight, I have to fight to stay awake till bedtime. Once my head hits the pillow, I am out! I always have vivid, weird, sometimes scary dreams. I call out in my sleep, recently saying, "Nooooo!" because a monster was going to eat me! I am 28 and always loved to sleep. People make fun of me and I feel like I'm a freak. In 1999 I got on antidepressants, and I seemed to wake up more during the day and was excited to do things, but now it's getting very bad again. I don't want to do anything but sleep. I am on Zoloft so I don't know if that has anything to do with my night sweats, but that seems to be a problem lately too. Leg cramps, yes. Jerking, yes. I don't hit or kick my husband, but I hurt him enough by never wanting to have sex anymore. All I want to do is sleep! Help me!
