    I’m a long sleeper. I need 10 – 11 hours to sleep.

    I work for 12 hours per day including the commuting or transportation.

    It ends up having 1-2 free hours per day to do my needs or have fun.

    I find this routine very exhausting. It’s very hard to wake up every morning. This fatigue lasts the whole day and really affects my nerves. I’m depressed now because of this constant fatigue. Unlike my friends at work, they are refreshed and have a good memory and focus.

    It’s very hard to find another similar job so how can I adapt?

    Welcome to the forum. I am not surprised to hear that you are experiencing fatigue when you work 12 hours per day and only have one or two hours for yourself each day. Do your friends at work also work 12 hours every day?

    Needing 10 to 11 hours of sleep is very unusual and may be a contributing factor to your fatigue. How do you feel you sleep? Do you wake in the morning feeling refreshed?
