Question sleep deprivation

does anyone here find that the more sleep they get the more depressed and tired they get? i find that the BEST cure for being depressed is going a minimum of 48 hours without seems to push me into a short lived hypomanic episode everytime i do it that i quickly come out of. then sleep a bit and find i feel more stable for awhile. any ideas?

Re: sleep deprivation

I'd be very careful with that way of treating depression.
I guess it could work. I've seen a lot over the years and had never heard of this one.
God Bless
