I’m feeling overwhelmed with my current mental state right now. I find that I’m struggling with both oversleeping and depression lately. I don’t know what’s been causing it, but it sure is starting to get on top of me.
I used to be a night owl and was able to stay up late and still feel well-rested the next day, but lately, even if I go to bed early, I’m finding myself sleeping too much and then waking up feeling unrested and exhausted. It’s so frustrating because it doesn’t matter how little or how much I sleep - I just never feel refreshed in the morning!
On top of that, the excessive sleep seems to be making my depression worse too. Lately, when I wake up feeling unrested or have had a really bad nights sleep - no matter the amount - my depression starts creeping in more heavily than usual. Everything seems so difficult and it feels like there’s nothing around to help lift me out of it all.
It’s times like this when all of this feels like too much that remind me how important it is to take care of myself - mind and body - as best as possible in order to cope with these struggles I’m facing with sleeping and depression.
