No motivation #Depression

I was diagnostised with depression 2 years ago.
I have never been without energy and motivation for such a long time.
School is almost here and I should get involved in studying.
But not only in learning, but also in everyday simple things.
How not to be constantly tired and without energy?
I'm not sure if I'm in an episode right now, but I feel like I should pull myself together.

I’m new here!

I just recently got diagnosed with hypothyroidism, after going back and forth about it. Thyroid problems run in my family and knew something was up. I had blood work done, and my TSH level was at 4.767 out of the range bar that goes to the highest of 4.780. Last year at this time it was 1.119 (somewhere along those lines). Why did this change in a year ? He said it was fine, I begged to differ. I have known many people with “high normal” results and ended up having to go to a specialist bc even though it was in range, it was still high. I also went back and forth with him about taking synthroid. I knew it was needed. At first he said no, then I had really raise my voice and explain to him how I have every symptom and will not be ignored of it. He gave me the medicine, starting at 25 mg daily. Why do doctor’s question And argue some of the basic things? I almost felt as an inconvenience. What side effects of hypothyroidism do people suffer the most?

No energy!

Fatigue is hitting really bad! My sleep schedule is all over the place! Feeling emotional again! So overwhelming!
I forced myself to go for a walk with Loki today and it was great! Got some good shots of him. Came home, had a bite eat went to sleep and didn't wake up until 5:30.
I still have no energy still after that. Hope it passes!

Been so busy! I have been finding it hard to get on here! 😁
Well first I want to say I am done my plank challenge and I lost five pounds doing so! It was tough and there was a few days I would have to miss because I was in a flare up but still proud I stuck to it!
This month I am starting a new challenge! The booty challenge! Haha... much easier then then the plank challenge!!
On the weekend was my 11 year anniversary! We made the best of it when we are in restrictions from covid. We will celebrate a bit more when things open! But I made all our favorite foods, laid around watching girly shows for me! (That is a gift on its own) haha...
Loki got his yearly shots and he did so much better this time around! He felt a little yucky, you could tell but not like he did when he was a baby pup!
I have been on the go that I feel a bit worn out! A case of Laziness hit me last night! So I am going to TRY to relax

Why is there never anything that can be done?

Quick info about my oldest daughter! She was diagnosed with ADHD, Learning disabilities, and a few other things. Which has lead her to be bullied and taken advantage of most of her life. It got bad to the point she tried to commit suicide and was in the hospital for 2 months.
When your daughter goes through so much, it's not just a toll on her it is a toll on the whole family.
She graduated, got help and is a apprentice in the hair industry. I am so proud of her, she has come a long way!
I was happy she found a really good friend, she was done school and hear I thought I was done fighting bullies but nope. Since than I had to help her fight off a employer who harrassed her during a hardship of putting our family dog down, a employee who is jealous and now a ex best friend of hers who we are like grieving for someone we though was an awesome person!
My body with this stress is going into flare!
This last time, her so called best friend was to help each other out by paying my daughter to clean her apartment.
Well they didn't end up paying her, treating her like poo, making messes while my daughter cleaned and expected her to clean up after them. My daughter ended up coming home in tears and left her jacket at her house with work keys. Long story short, try to steal jacket, got jacket back, stole work keys, got police involved, tried to get my daughter in trouble with work, gave the key back and we though perfect we can be done with them. Blocked numbers, social media accounts.
Nope, called from different numbers, made different accounts to bug my daughter again about some headphones that was given to my daughter before all of this. My daughter called me from work and I told her to reply they can come get them when she get home.
Had some big man pull up to my house with other people in it, to pick up these headphones and I told him he will have to come back later or tomorrow to get them because my daughter is at work. Well he started calling me names and threatened me with the police, I told him to get off my property and called the police. They asked him to leave and I can contact him a better time to pick up the headphones.
When does this stuff stop? Why couldn't he be just an adult and say hey can you message me when a good time is to pick up the headphones? These girls continued to harrass my daughter after the police left.
There is absolutely nothing legally we can do to stop these girls. Nothing! Even during all the years of being bullied by the same kids for 7 years, nothing! The law always seems to protect the bullies more so their victims!
After this if they continue after these headphones the only thing I can do is go down to the courthouse and try to get a civilian retraining order!
Just no energy for this anymore!

Constantly feeling tired all the time.#Noenergy #TooLittleSleep #Sleeptoomuch

I wish I knew how to better explain how I'm feeling, but the only way to say it is that I'm tired,no scratch that, I'm EXHAUSTED. I have little to no energy at all to anything, I feel like I'm always at work, due to being the reliable one that everyone comes to and asks to cover a shift here, and cover a shift there. I live in a small town, and I don't currently own a car, so I'm always having to walk to get anywhere, including my job. I have to force myself to make the walk to work or any place else for that matter, everything is so spread out and far away. I don't know what to do about how I'm feeling, and I'm absolutely scared that something will happen to me either on my way to work or while I'm at work. 😭😭😭

No energy to deal with death #DepressiveEpisodes

My mother in law has been in hospice for a little over a week and tonight is likely her final hours. I’ve gotten a couple calls from family telling me that they’re on their way over to the house and asking if I’m going to go over there too.
I am not.
I have been struggling with a depressive episode for almost a month now and I just don’t have the energy to go over there, especially at this time of night. I’ve already gone to visit her a few times since she’s been in hospice so I feel like I’ve made peace with her passing already.
I could hear the disappointment in their voices when I said no and rambled some excuse for why. Now is not the time to tell them I can’t go to be in a house full of sad people when I’ve already been sad for weeks. I feel like I’ll just deal with this new sadness tomorrow. #Depression #DepressiveEpisodes #Noenergy #icantdoit

Summer heat #fibroflare #Pain #Noenergy

Anyone else struggling in this heat? I live on the border of Wales and SW England and I’m really struggling at the moment. It’s meant to be getting hotter but I find that I have zero energy and 100% pain mainly in my legs but the rest of my body is catching up quickly ☹️ Any ideas on how to cope??
