    I Think We All Do At Times....

    I think we all do at times. We would not be human with human emotions if we did not. Life is a struggle and it is up to us how we cope with it.

    ...

    Even when I get a day off, even when I'm being left completely to my own devices, for some reason, I always feel stressed. No matter what I do, I feel harried, and/or just plain interrupted. If kiddo, fiance, roomie, dog, or cat don't interrupt me, then I'll interrupt myself. I...

    No Motivation Whatsoever

    I'm being treated for depression and ADHD, but either my meds don't work properly or I don't take them correctly, I cannot drag myself out of bed on the weekends. I suffer just to get up and make it to work, but that's about it. I have to force myself to do everything, including...

    Into More Pieces Than My Heart Was Made Of.

    Does it break my heart? Of course. Every moment of every day, into more pieces than my heart was made of. I never thought of myself as quiet, much less silent. I never thought about things at all. Everything changed, and that distance wedged itself between me and my happiness. It...

    Depression

    I have very little energy and motivation because of my depression. I am classed as high functioning but people don't seem to understand just how much effort it takes to survive and get through the daily tasks of living. Even brushing my teeth can be a huge task.

    Lift the Load Please.

    It is a struggle to go through the motions of a life.  It is exhausting.  My days last forever because I don't sleep much.  How do you move forward?  I am stuck.

    Euthanize Me!
