slept all night... still tired

 what are the possibilities?

 

I went to bed around midnight, and woke up around 8:30... my "normal" sleep schedule is bed by 3, up by 8. i sat on the couch while DS ate breakfast- and fell asleep.

then i got up and went to where DS was (down in the basement/our bedroom) and fell asleep down there.

we went upstairs b/c my brother got home, bro was playing the game, me and DS were watching him... and i fell asleep.

its like i literally cannot keep myself awake!

i'm thinking of making a doctor appointment for this. but in the mean time- is there anything i can do to help myself? i mean, even yesterday (Saturday), i took a nap from 2-5 and still went to bed at midnight.

Quoting marshakay:

talk to your GP about this. what if you fell asleep while driving?

lol i havent even thought of that! my mom has my car right now so i dont even drive. but i get it back May 9th and it is true- what if i do get so tired that i fall asleep while driving. that would be the worst! i asked my mom if she can watch DS tomorrow if i can set up a doc appt. i'm really hoping that i'm able to.

this is a dumb moment here- but whats a GP?
