Too much sleep, always feel exhausted

Patient : Hello, Over the last few weeks on many occasions, I have been getting in from work and sleeping from 7:30pm until 9 or 10 am. When I wake I don't feel refreshed at all. I'm not motivated to do anything and I feel like I'm sleeping my life away. I have been to my doctors and had blood tests to check for anemia and thyroid problems and both were clear. What else could this be? I have been like this on and off since my late teens. Any advice would really be appreciated. Many thanks Zoe
