Is this because of depression?


Recommended Posts

Cindy, it's very hard to say what is causing your sleep irregularities, especially since none of us here is a professional. Depression is certainly one possible cause, and although I've never experience precisely what you describe, I know that I had a lot of trouble getting to sleep when I was depressed.

The very long cycle you describe, the possibility that you're controlling food intake as well (at least sometimes), the ups as well as downs, could mean other things. There are far too many possibilities for someone to guess over the internet. And no matter what, you would want to rule out medical problems first.

So it seems like you need to talk to your doctor, and maybe ask them to talk to a specialist.
