    Basically it's when you oversleep. you may have trouble sleeping at first, but once you do you end up sleeping way too much and wake up feeling tired and like you didn't rest at all. seems to be happening a lot to me lately.

    Yeah- I'm usually the opposite, but I have gone through spells where I'd just sleep and sleep and sleep and always feel tired.
    I didn't know what the technical term for it was! XD thanks!

    -- right now though; I'm in the opposite category. no sleep...ever. 0___0

    I alternate between periods of insomnia and hypersomnia, sometimes having both at the same time e.g. struggling to fall asleep, but then sleeping for hours and not being able to wake up when I want to. I've had to strategically set up 6 different alarms to make sure I get up in the mornings, and even then I can sometimes sleep through. Damn you snooze button... :dry:

    Like that bit with the alarm clocks,:cool: I need to have them spread out like that, still end up going back to sleep, actually more like hiding.:eek:hmy:

    I usually sleep 12 to 14 hours a day, sometimes up to 20 hours, but that's extreme even for me. I feel tired all the time, but it might be due to like a million other mental health issues I have... ugh, it's so frustrating not being able to know what caused what problem... it's all just a tangled up mess I can't sort out...
