Sleeping my way out of a hole

I’ve spent the past three weeks sleeping about 14 hours a day. I feel into a hole of depression. I got sick and needed a visit to the ER and antibiotics for a week in early February. Then my cat got sick and died. That was the turning point. Things are looking up again… probably because the weather is getting warmer, and the days are getting longer.

Seasonal Affective Disorder is one of the few mental hiccups in my mind. My mood and emotions are stable, but I lack the motivation and energy to go the distance sometimes. This means I fall behind on reading, I miss class discussions, and eventually, I have to ask for extensions on my homework.

I have two incompletes from Spring 2015. I must complete these. Now that I’m sleeping less, and able to focus a little bit more on the tasks at hand, I’m hopeful I can catch up on Spring 2015, and remain current on Spring 2016.
