I sit around all day not doing anything because I don’t feel like doing anything but when my family gets mad due to it, I cry because I know I’m lazy and I know I’m worthless but I’m trying. I don’t know why I’m so lazy. I hate myself every day due to it. I’m so physically tired all the time.

    Maybe your body knows that doing something just to please your family is not a worthy investment. Unfortunately my family is not a worthy investment and I had to find a new one. Now I am making a good wage and plan to enlist in the Navy...something I never would have imagined! Listen to your instincts. The only person who knows what's best for you is you

    I am/was like this. Turns out I had a bunch of medical problems. The best thing you can do is listen to yourself and what your body tells you. You're the only one who can experience you.

    Listening to what your body wants/needs is so important, and sometimes it needs more rest than others. I know it's frustrating when family doesn't understand why you can't do things as much as them, but they don't have to deal with the things you do

    Honestly I do the same thing but it’s because our body is so tired from overworking itself mentally and physically throughout the years so it wants a break now. It’s ok to take a break but slowly try and do things little by little again even if it’s just getting up and changing your outfit or just organizing a small area. I also agree on the whole point that your body just doesn’t think that the people your with are worthy of you as a person anymore so try and branch out to others you trust. For me my real family is my friends that I trust my life with.

    I understand what your saying- when I don’t have to go to work I can’t seem to get off the couch and stop watching the tv or projector. I feel like a terrible mom and wife as I would love to hike , go out smile and laugh like I used to when I was young I just can’t seem to shake the fog I get into. When I plan things with family lately I get overly anxious and end up telling them I am sick or some excuse to not see them as it takes to much out of me with all the analyzing I do around others.I hate to say it because COVID is not good at all but with it and having to restrict who you see and where you go was a breath of fresh air to me…. I didn’t have to try and explain myself as I always had too.

    This is depression, not laziness. It's a symptom of a disease, not a personality trait. Would you blame someone with a broken leg for not being able to walk fast enough? Invisible illnesses are hard to deal with and I'm sorry your family doesn't understand. You can get help and treatment to make things somewhat easier and make life feel more doable. Best of luck 💕
