As long as I can remember, I have been a rather 'tired' person. I fall asleep the instant my head hits the pillow, and I can often force myself to sleep within five minutes, no matter the conditions.
I've always fallen asleep first at sleepovers. I'm known for my incredibly deep sleeps, I would wake up at friends' houses with with a pile of items in front of my face from them throwing things at me.
Just about any time of the day I'm awake, I am ready for a nap. Woke up an hour ago? Sure I'll nap. In my school days I would sleep 10-6, then nap from about 4:30-8. I still, at twenty-four, average about nine hours a day split up over two sleeping periods.
I had a period of a few years where after napping, when I stood, I'd pass out. It was worst during my 'heavy nap' phases, and I still get the sensation, though I now know how to control what triggers the actual fainting.
When I was around six months old, my mother said I once slept for thirty-six hours straight. Being worried, she called the doctor and they said it was relatively normal, I just find the story indicative of my existence.
Uh.... does anyone have experience with this? I feel my consistent lack of energy is responsible for my overall lack of productivity, and I'd like to remedy it. Doctor, perhaps? Moar Red Bulls? I get a fair amount of exercise, enough to stay fitter than the average person I guess. Modern medicine may be my last bastion of hope....
