Unmotivated Mornings

This morning has been tough… I did not feel like going to school today, so I am just sitting at home feeling VERY unmotivated. I thought I would post on here incase anyone else is experiencing the same (or similar) things as me. Remember that it is totally okay to take a day off, and just just focus on yourself! If all you do today is sit on the couch, I am still proud of you! You’re doing amazing :) #Depression #Unmotivated

Not gonna lie…

Not gonna lie, but I’ve felt pretty exhausted for the past few months. I developed Muscular Dysphonia and my fiancé got a diagnosis of stage 2 Thyroid Cancer. So, we’ve been bouncing around from doctor to doctor. Sometimes not even being able to get ahold of doctors. It’s been exhausting. No amount of sleep will help. We have both settled into a depression that we can’t seem to pull out of. We have our good days, but then we just fall right back down our respective rabbit holes. It seems like I can’t get a grip. There isn’t a ladder that can reach down far enough to pull me out of this. I feel stuck, and work just keeps trying to pile more onto my already cracking china plate. Words of encouragement are nice, but I feel like they just bounce right off of me. I can’t go to therapy because I can’t talk due to the dysphonia. I’ve waited two weeks to hear from a speech therapist. Two phone calls, six transfers, a voicemail, and one call back later; I finally have an appointment…in two weeks…It just seems like life is like. “Oh, that doesn’t seem like enough. Let’s throw another curve ball at her!” And it does. And my china plate cracks a bit more. #Depression #exhausted #Drained #Unmotivated

Behind closed doors...

#Depression #Shame #Hoarsing #Unmotivated

This is my room. It's an absolute diaste overrun by mountains of STUFF. Mostly clothes I have worn once, or some even brand new and got buried in the rubble. I am so ashamed, and embarrassed. I go to great lengths to make sure no one ever comes over. I sit on my bed almost all day, everyday with my phone in front of my face. I don't have a job, I haven't worked in 4 years. I had a job since I was 12 years old kkdI feel judged and ridiculed by everyone in my life - especially my family. No one ever asks me "What's going on?" "How can I help?" "Do you want to talk about?" They just add to the awful things I already feel about myself. "You don't work - you have no excuse." "You're almost 35 now, it's time to put on your big girl pants." "Just throw everything out and start again." It's not that easy - if it was, do you not think I'd have done that by now? I don't even know where to start to be honest, everytime I try it's not long before I give up. I feel so overwhelmed and everyday it gets a little worse. I'm always late and so when I'm frantically trying to find something and I can't- I start throwing things across the room, calling myself terrible names and wondering why I keep doing this to myself. I scream, I cry, I kick walls, hit myself - the stress is so intense I feel like I will explode. I don't know how this happened and I don't know how to stop it.

One of those in bed all day days

Insomnia kept me up all night I took a bunch of melatonin and smoked a blunt and still didn't fall asleep until about noon fifteen only slept until 5 and now I brushed my teeth and changed my clothes. Back n bed waiting for my love to come in and cook for me. He loves that and knows I can't cook and I wait tables so I'm not trying to. I don't work on Mondays and unless it's important for years I don't get out of bed. Manic Monday has always been very real to me. #Depression #Unmotivated #ManicMonday

Unmotivated & Confused

I’m feeling super unmotivated these past two weeks. I got invited to go to one my friends house to watch church and hang out with the sisters but I’m honestly thinking about cancelling. I want to keep my job but I don’t know how to drive and don’t know when I will be learning and catching public transportation and going to work has been super hard on my health lately and it’s not getting any better (my health declines more and more every week it seems like). I decided to stay home from work today. I’ve been catching rides (Uber) but I can’t keep up with spending 25+ dollars everyday to get back and forth to work and save money it’s impossible. I need some advice, encouragement, anything. I could quit my job and go back to unemployment and save and pay for my insurance that way or I could find a new job, but I don’t want anything that would be straineous but also pays well. Somebody help please 🤦🏾‍♀️ #Anxiety #Depression #Unmotivated #Feelingsorryformyself #confused #Undiagnosed


I really dislike work

I have a job that I just don’t feel connected to. I know a lot of people don’t, jobs are just a means to an end. However, it’s important to me that I feel what I am doing is worthwhile. I actually work in Social Services but I’m not doing anything that excites me. I am not sure if this is depression or the job. For a minute my job gave me a project to work on that kept me busy and stressed from the moment I arrived and I loved it. I adjusted and created a plan to deal with the workload and then they hired someone else to do it. So now I am back to watching the clock. I don’t think I’m depressed, I think I’m bored and feel stifled. I want to live life on my own terms and have adventures with people I love. That can’t be too much to ask for. Not depressed, discontent. #venting #Job #Unmotivated #Depression


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!!

Creativity has gone

I no longer feel creative. I’m considering selling my camera, lenses and every single thing to do with this “hobby” as someone called it because I know I’ve lost the feeling for it. I don’t think it will return. Aunt Anhedonia is here to stay and I have no interest anymore. #Depression #anhedonia #selfsoubt #Unmotivated


Tomorrow’s goals #depressed #Unmotivated

Tomorrow I will pretend I’m ok and go out of the house to see people. #self -motivation
