I was just remembering back when I was between the age of 12-17 years old. I remember getting more than enough sleep in one night but never having the energy to get up from my bed. I was told by my siblings and even an old ex (when we lived together) that I "never do shit all day", and that I'm "being lazy" but they never understood why. I had never spoken to my siblings or my ex at the time about my depression, I just let them assume that I was a lazy bum. Once, when I was back in Louisiana, I came home from school super exhausted--- after having fallen asleep in my classes and on the bus ride home, I went straight to my room and immediately crashed.
I didn't wake up to eat, I didn't wake up to use the restroom, and I didn't even say anything to my parents when I got home. I remember waking up late for school the next day with my backpack and shoes still on from the afternoon before! Day after day I would fall asleep in all my classes, on the bus ride home but never for 16 hours straight. I was in 8th grade. I don't know where I'm going with this post but I wanna say that if you know anybody who appears to be exhausted all day or if they spend majority of their day isolated from everyone around them or sleeping too much, check in on them and be considerate of what you say to them.
Sending positive vibes.
