Unmotivated #motivationneeded

I feel like this year has been a massive fail on my side and that I've got no achievements over the past 12 months. I've been stuck in the house more days than I can count this year and majority of the time I've been at my desk thinking about all the things I could be doing but being unable to actually do it. I need a more positive outlook on this year but I feel like it's too late. I hope next year is better and I can go out more because the loneliness is eating me alive!!

What to do when you can’t move

I’ve just started a short term leave from work for a depressive episode that started around August. It’s been slowly getting worse until, about a week before Christmas my whole body was vibrating and I would jump three feet in the air if someone sneezed too loud because I was so hypersensitive. There was no way I could continue working so my boss and I agreed that I would take an extended leave over the holidays.

I’ve lived with undiagnosed high sensitivity/depression for most of my life, but was always very high functioning so people just said I was “high strung.” I learned not to listen to the warning signs and just kept pushing through. I am now 40 years old and I’m the middle of an episode of whatever mental health cocktail I have and I cannot think my way out of a paper bag, and I don’t know how to spend my days.

I feel like there is something I should be doing to make myself feel better but the days just kind of slip by...and I may have done one or two things around the house but I barely remember. In my mind I have ideas for things I’d like to be doing but my current reality is that it’s hard to remember to brush my teeth. I’m worried a month will roll around and I will still be staring at the ceiling unable to move, imagining the things I could do if I had the energy.

Does anyone have experience with taking leave for a depressive episode? What are some healthy ways to pass the time when you find it tiring to walk from your bed to the couch?

Any suggestions on how to get motivated when you are so down and isolated that you can barely make yourself move all day? Not being cynical. Really

looking for good suggestions other than the usual, “Take a walk!!!” Gotta get out of this pit. #Depression #motivationneeded #Need answers


What are your tricks to get out of bed when you're "downing"? #Depression #motivationneeded

I work full time and I'm a full time student or at least that's what I'm supposed to be right now. Lol I'm having more good days lately but I still have a whole lot of days where I can't pull myself out of bed and cancel the whole day.
