No Motivation

I have been a diagnosed sufferer of depression for over 13 years. My meds do a good job stabilizing my moods. However, I enter these periods of no motivation that are suffocating. It happens when I return home from work. Once I get in my house I can't get off my couch or turn off the tv. I just sit here. I should be outside enjoying the nice weather, walking around the lake I live on. I literally want to scream right now, fighting with myself about going for a walk.

You are so not alone. Do what you enjoy. If you chose to be alone, make the best of it. Never give up, learn to beat the beast.

When I force myself to get up and go for a walk through the country park, because even if I don't want to my dog need it, I always feel at least a wee bit better about it once I'm out and walking. Maybe you should try and force yourself every so often and maybe after while of doing that it'll become a little easier to do or maybe become somewhat automatic to do.<br />

I hope you feel better soon and find something to pull you through the dark times.
