For me it's writing. I can't get enough of it. I always have at least 4 stories on the go and that makes me want to get onto the 'net every day or so and write a bit more.
Plenty of things get me excited and I would like to do them, but most involve money - I haven't got a job and the enthusiasm to get one just isn't there. There's also the time problem, any job I'll get will conflict with Uni.
I used to enjoy creative writing, but in my depression I think I might have conditioned myself to associate it with absolute failure (I declined so much at that time that I didn't bother to hand in the assignment to complete a course I was doing well in). I haven't picked up a pen to do some creative writing since.

I understand you, it's hard to explain that you care for others but then you don't at the same time. This has been my mentality for years, I told myself to be passive and avoid everything, but I used to be a very different person not too long ago.

It could very well be severe fatigue. I've had many restless nights for the last few months even though I'm my least stressful since it's the holidays. I've been treated for Depression but not Insomnia (which I originally sought to find help for), so it'd be a good idea to consult the doctor.
Other symptoms - I'm not sure but I'm restless at night (mostly because of the environment where I sleep) but when I do sleep it's often for 12+ hours, well into the afternoon sometimes.
