    I always find myself waking up around 11:00

    or 12 Cuz I feel like I have nothing to do .Idk of this is a sign of depression,because I feel like I'm not all that tired to be sleeping that much,but I just choose to.All my family and friends seem to wake up earlier then me that's why I'm posting this.Any answers people ?

    I tend to over sleep.

    Most nights I get around 14 hours of sleep. It makes life very hard. But without sleep I feel lost. The only time I don't sleep that much is when I'm with him.. But he is gone so il just sleep
