Oversleeping is a well known sign of depression.

@ Pamela H.

What do you think? No, of course I did not read your correction.
My "assumptions" were obviously born from your mis-typed comment; anyone who reads "I am denying that depression exists" would think the same as I did.
If you dislike assumptons so much, stop creating them. I loathe them as well.

Eve W.: Please have your thyroid checked immediately. Sleeping this many hours a day is one of the symptoms of hypothyroidism, a condition which can kill you if it's not treated.

Valentina R. Did you not read my correction? It was an obvious typo. I have family members who suffer from depression so I do NOT deny that depression exists. I am now closing this page and will not be reading any more of your attacks and baseless assumptions such as:- "Had a happy life? Have few worries? Studied a lot and therefore are an expert? Good for you. But please, wherever your inappropriate confidence comes from, keep your pseudo-smart science away from the rest of us inferior human beings".
Sadly there are too many people in this world that make assumptions based on little or no information, and you, Valentina, are one such person.

@ Pamela H.

Yes, and I suppose you think you are indeed part of the "wisest" side of the world?

You seem to be very defensive about this topic, as I did not criticize "everything else you said", but just part of it, and yet you felt offended enough to proudly repeat how strong and firm your (uncorrect) beliefs and wide (?) knowledge are.

"I am denying that depression exists."

That is where any "credentials" you claim to have instantly evaporate. Very worrisome statement, lacking of any logic and truth, and extremely offensive for everyone who suffers from this life-sucking disease.
Had a happy life? Have few worries? Studied a lot and therefore are an expert? Good for you. But please, wherever your inappropriate confidence comes from, keep your pseudo-smart science away from the rest of us inferior human beings.

Correction: I am NOT denying depression exists.

Valentina R, I am denying that depression exists. Please don't presume to know what I am thinking and then post it here as 'fact'. What are your credentials that show you know what 'normal' is or is not? Even the wisest, most educated people battle with the question of 'What is normal'. That which is normal for one person may not be for another.
I stand by everything else I said, and have received several green stars for my comment which is from many years of observation and interest in the topic. And please keep your "Uh no" sarcasm in check.
