> Hi all,
> I'm having terrible trouble getting up in the morning. I finally get up at about 10:30/11:00 but I'm only up for a few hours before I need a nap. I'm going to bed about 10pm with help from meds to go to sleep.

That sounds much like what I've been struggling with. Apathy (lack of desire/motivation) compounded by anergia (lack of energy). Stimulants help. Many people seem to suggest or imply that will-power is the solution, but the apathy robs you of that will-power. I guess they mean determination. Obviously, with enough determination, you can force yourself out of bed. If you do it enough, it becomes easier because it becomes habitual. I've personally achieved this to an extent (it's not perfect) as far as going out for walks is concerned.
