I can sleep anywhere for very long periods of time?

Basically, I have fallen asleep in the weirdest places... I have fallen asleep in band class in high school, driving, every day at my old job, standing up....etc. The longest I have slept is upwards of 23 hours only getting up to use the restroom. I have a lot of trouble waking up, which I believe is from sleeping too much. It is becoming a major issue. I ALWAYS fall asleep when I'm in a car in the sun. I try so hard to not drive while it's nice out...but sometimes I really have to go places like work or something...and I have fallen asleep driving many times... THIS IS SO DANGEROUS. I don't know what to do.... I just want to be able to wake up after 8 hours of sleep and feel as energized as normal people. Any clue what's going on?! I have been tested for anemia and thyroid issues and I have neither.
