In brief: Sleep Hygiene
Maintaining a good sleep pattern minimizes a lot of issues.
From digestive problems to mood and anxiety.Please get your thyroid and metabolic profile checked a young person your age should not have these sleep problems.At times its not meds needed its some deficiencies that can cure these problems. Good luck.

There are sleep disorders associated with sleeping too much particularly for younger patients. Being evaluated by a sleep specialist for "hypersomnia" to rule out sleep disorders including Narcolepsy, Kliene-Levin syndrome, etc may be necessary.

In brief: Seek Help
If you are that sleepy, it may be a sign of a significant sleep disorder like sleep apnea or, since you are so young, even narcolepsy.
Get checked out. And please don't drive or do anything hazardous if sleepy.

In brief: Probably depression
Your other question asked about dealing w/ depressioin.
If you're 24 & sleeping constantly & unhappy, you might have a medical problem (low thyroid, lyme, etc) but more likely have depression. Increased sleep is more typical of bipolar d/o. Do you have periods (days to weeks to months, not minutes or hours) of increased energy followed by periods of great depression, without precipitants?
