After feeling like my life has been a long dreamy episode, I am 21 years old now, and have followed many medical avenues into finding out exactly why I feel like this, and if there is anything I can do about it.
I dont want to sleep, but once I do, I sleep for a minimum of 8 hours. In the morning, I dont want to wake up. During the day, I almost collapse from fatigue. Every day of my life so far: waking up in the morning to give myself a reason to go through with the day.
I haven't got this sleep issue because I am depressed (as all the doctors have told me) , I am depressed BECAUSE I have this sleep problem.
Thoughts pour into my mind continuously with no break every day.
As other posters have stated, this is no way to live life.
Tonight, I am trying melatonin for the first time, hoping it may be the "miracle cure", although I know it isnt.....nothing is.
I do have a passion for life, but this has dragged me down for so long, that I dont recognise when I am awake or asleep anymore.View Thread
