I don't know what's wrong with me lately but I'm lacking motivation in just about every area in my life. I used to be on top of my game at work - so creative and driven. I used to be inspired to make all these lists to do projects and cleaning around the house. I used to do fun crafts and educational stuff with my kids. I used to cook a lot. Everything just feels like too much work now and not interesting.

What do you think used to motivate you?

I used to spend a lot of time reading different blogs. When I became busy with just surviving, I didn't have the time or care to read blogs anymore. Now I have a little more time but the interest hasn't come back yet.

Maybe :-/

I have had problems with depression during my life. Haven't heard of Dysthymia but upon looking it up, I probably do have that at this time of life.

Yeah I thought it was part of my personality type. I have been on Prozac and Zoloft. All I really got out of them were undesirable side effects though. I think things would be better if some general life challenges would calm down - sick family, car accidents, etc...

I have given up on them too. I went on Buspar for short term during a trying time where I was so full of anxiety I couldn't eat. As soon as I was able to eat, I stopped it. It's a short term, non addictive anti-depressant/anxiety med. I hit 'add to circle' for you.
