Hypersomnia: This change makes me wonder about the possibility that you might be either taking a medication that is causing you to sleep more, or that you have a sleep disorder that is interrupting your sleep, or that you have a mild form of depression, or possibly some other medical condition. You should see your doctor for an evaluation.
