i am 21 and for as long as i can remember i have been incredibly "lazy" or so iv always been told. i can sleep in till 3pm and still feel tired, and if i drag myself out of bed for work at 8am i cant concentrate and feel lithargic and sleepy all day, i dont go to bed late either, usually around midnight. even if i go to sleep at 10pm i would have trouble getting up at 10am. if no one drags me out of bed i will sleep for around 12 - 14 hours. i know its not laziness, i dont want to be like this, i envy anyone who can get up at 8am and go for a walk, i wish i could do that but i physically cant. its making me very sad because i am literally sleeping my life away when i should be enjoying life. doctors just hand me anti depressants, which i dont want nor need, im not depressed, but it does get me down obviousley, but other than that i am a very happy upbeat person. i so badly want to change, does anyone have any idea what it could be? maybe i can tell the doctors what iv got before they hand me pills!
