can anyone tell me if it is normal to sleep for about 16-18 hours a day. My oh seems to be sleeping so much.I must admit I quite like the few hours in the afternoon to catch up with housework and washing, but it doesn’t seem right. He sleeps almost 11 hours at night and is then asleep after breakfast and again after lunch. He’s getting more and more confused and wants me with him all the time when he’s awake. ( or which ever woman I am at the moment, sister, daughter or whoever) but when he’s awake I have to help with washing and dressing, and every thing else. The sleeping is fairly new though.is this yet another stage of this slow death?
