if anyone has read through theyre new muscle development mag, they talk about a problem which i am determined that i think i have. its called hypersomnia, your basically going through your day feeling like garbage and sleepy as sh!t all day. this has been with me for a while now. its so stinkin hard just to get a half way decent mentality going into the gym without having to gag down 500/600 mg of caffeine and ephedra.
theyre's a drug doctors can perscribe you and i have a doctors appointment coming tomorrow, to get blood tested before i go on my suspension/var cycle in my 4th year of powerlifting.
when i sleep a good 8-10 hours, i wake up tired. when i sleep 4-5 hours i feel the same exact way. when i dont sleep at all, i will have just as much energy in the gym, as i did if i were to sleep regularly. this is pissin me off badly, im determined to win my weight class this year, and im not gonna let this disorder rip me off.
is anyone else familiar with this?

i might have to look into this. i really got to get this situation resolved, i might have the ability to bench well in the high 400's this year or maybe even hit 500, but i will never know untill i can get this sh!t ass disorder off me. my mentality wants to crush in the gym, but my body wants to sleep.

What you can do is go to a sleep clinic and theyll put a videocamera on you while you sleep probably and see if you toss and turn too much. I think theres drugs they give you to help.

i remember watching some tv show about a woman who slept on average 20 hours a day...she later got some treatment that made it possible for her to stay up

are you suffering from a depression? That could be the cause

i was, before i ever did my first cycle, for some time, then right after my first cycle, when i didnt run proper pct(which was the main cause), i didnt want anti depressants. i didnt need anti depressants. it was all a mind game to me and i conquered it well. i havnt had a depression problem for some time now.
