Got myself into a cycle of awake for a few hours/take to bed for a few hours ie more a succession of cat naps than a good 6-8 hours sleep.
Have tended to take to bed during the day once or twice as feel bored/empty and can see little point of being up but it's now got even worse .

Got a wake up call. Blood pressure was up above 140 for the first time ever when taken at the depot clinic. It seems that sleeping too much can cause raised BP and increased risk of strokes. Obviously awake 2-3 hours asleep 2-3 hours has had a detrimental effect on my BP.
