    The Weekends Are A Problem...

    I don't work, really, so the weekends don't mean all that much. And yet, somehow, I manage to sleep way more during Saturday and Sunday than on the other days. I often go to sleep even earlier on the weekends than normal. I freak myself out that way. I will go to sleep at 9-ish...

    I sleep too much! I hate

    that I'm not a go getter no more. I'm experienced, degreed intelligent but all I want to do is shut out the world because of fear of rejection. I sleep 12-14 hours a day. This has been my routine for the past month. Any sleepers out there? I know this is pretty extreme

    Others might sleep a good 8 hours

    and feel refreshed, I on the other hand need 12+ hours just to function for the next day.
