Sleeping too much/too little is a sign of
depression, not necessarily a cause. Too much
is more lumped into what is called "atypical
depression". Anyways I think it could exacerbate
things a bit as this is my experience. If I am
only mildly depressed, and I force my self out
of bed to get up and do things, even just taking
a shower, I often feel good. In fact long term
sleep deprivation has in some studies anecdotally
been shown to have an anti-depressant response.
Ever stayed up to late studying for a Final or
something and got a little "slap-happy" ?. ;)

PS. you ask a lot of questions recently
on this newsgroup. Could you please review for us your diagnosis
and any failed/positivite medical trials?
I'll try to dig through
your old posts, but I just want to make sure that
we don't give advice inconsistent with your
diagnosis and experiences.
