hi everybody after my stroke 2 months ago I was sleeping ok now I feel as I’m sleeping all the time , I’ve been told this could be depression would like to no anybody’s thoughts mark

Hello Mollymoo,

After a stroke your brain has had a huge truma and needs plenty of sleep to aid recovery. When I was in hospital I spent almost all day sleeping and the nurses said this was to be expected so I didn't worry. When i came out of hospital I still needed lots of sleep even though i was sleeping normally at night. Even now after almost 2 years post stroke I still need lots of sleep to keep going so try not to worry as this is quite normal. I think you would know if you were depressed as that is different. Just go with your body, if it needs sleep give it some. Good luck in your recovery.
