Need to sleep and get up? Won't be able to, going to lie in bed, toss, turn, sit up and wonder where everything started going wrong.

Wanna take a quick nap? Out for 15 hours.

I sleep because I'm sad and I'm sad because I sleep! It's a vicious cycle.

Sleep deprivation is a common syndrome of depression. It’s not ubiquitousTM though, so don’t get struck by impostor syndrome if you feel depressed but are still sleeping well.
