I used to be that way and the doctor says depression. You either sleep a lot or don't sleep at all. Both depression. Changed anything in your life recently?

Hi, welcome to the forum, we cannot put you in particular diagnosis. But it can be idiopathic hypersomnia where there is excessive daytime sleepiness without cataplexy or sleep paralysis. Usually one will not be in deep sleep. The causes for such hypersomnia remain unknown but environmental, psychological factors may play role. Such prolonged sleepiness can cause clinically significant distress or impairment in social, occupational, or other important areas of functioning.

The causes which need to be ruled out are viral infection, substance abuse, alcohol etc. The drugs like modafinil or methyl phenidate against prescription can help decrease sleepiness during day. Take regular naps during day whenever you get free time. I suggest you to consult sleep specialist. Take care and regards.
