Is it part of my depression to be constantly tired? Most of the time, esp when I have days off from work (I work part-time) I can/will sleep the entire day away. I lack motivation to do anything. I feel overwhelmed doing the simplest tasks. Im always feeling unfulfilled.

Depression does cause fatigue. It may be worth having a blood test just to see if you are lacking any nutrients. It is possible you could lack iron too.
