Hi, I don't know what to do. I've gotten into a bad habit of sleeping a lot. I sleep usually about 10-12 hours at night and then when my kids and I get up, usually late in the morning. Almost noon. We're only awake for 2-4 hours before I make us all lay down for a nap. They comply, especially my youngest. We take a nap for about 2-3 hours, so we're wasting the entire day. I always feel sort of sick when I wake up and I also feel so badly about sleeping so much. But the thing is, when we're awake in the mornings before our nap, all I can really think about it sleep. I'm so tired. Even if I'm doing other things, I'm just tired. It's always on my mind. But when I wake up in the late afternoon, from our nap, I feel so good and ready to start my day.......at the end of the day! That's when i feel my best. And then I'm awake and truckin' until about midnight or 1:00 in the morning. I'm so sick of this, do you all think this is depression or just a bad habit? I know I don't need this much sleep. How do I stop this vicious cycle? Please help me.

My ENT sent me for more tests last week...one where they had me lie back in a chair, with blacked out goggles on so I couldn't see while they administered water into my ears one at a time ( first warm, then room-tempurature, then cold) while they video taped my eyes and asked me questions to determine how cognizant I was... This test went HORRIBLY. They were about 20 seconds or so into...
