I am having such a hard time feeling motivated. I'm always so tired and I have zero energy. I feel constantly overwhelmed and it feels like it almost paralyzes me when I start to think about everything I need to get done. So much so that I don't know where to start so I end up avoiding my responsibilities and it's starting to not only effect my parenting but also my relationship. I feel so lost and my mind feels fuzzy all the time. Does anyone else feel like this? What do you do to stop this feeling? I'm so afraid of doctors that I haven't seen any in about a year and I am currently on no medications at all.

      I can relate. What I started to do is break down what I wanted and need to accomplish every day on my Google calendar. This helped me to reach the milestones I need every day. If I didn't reach them I would just move the goal to another day.

      Hi everyone! Although it’s nice to know I’m not alone, it’s awful to know so many are suffering. And those that can’t relate don’t understand. So having support and giving support will hopefully help us all. It’s hard to get my husband to understand that when I don’t respond the way he wants that I’m not trying to be rude I just can’t concentrate. For me there is a lot of repetitive thoughts, like a loop. People don’t realize how physically exhausting depression is. How guilty we feel for being unmotivated. How distracted we get. How we struggle to find meaning when we feel our lowest. It’s the worst. I did TMS. It did help some. I think science is improving and to me there is hope in that.

        @Shell_Belle I have a friend that did Spravato and it helped her quite a bit!

          @packersfan95 I had to google it. It sounds like it’s for people who are suicidal? TMS is to treat more moderate depression I believe. I’d say my depression is moderate. But it’s unrelenting. It never really goes away. So it’s hard. I’m happy your friend found something to help her. I still don’t fully understand it. I’m going to research it a little more.

      I have this alot to. Sometimes I just need to go outside and take a breather. Most the time when I get like this is because I'm over stimulated and need everything to just be quiet and calm for a while.

      I feel the same way, even though I’m on medication. I’ve made progress from where I was a year ago but the feeling doesn’t go away. Some days I just don’t do anything but try to be compassionate with myself because this feeling weighs heavy. So I’ll rest and try again. What has helped most days is taking it one day at a time, set small goals, do something I don’t like with something I do. For example, I watch tv or listen to music while doing chores. Meditate or do something just for me.

      I feel the same way. I neglecting responsibilities and isolating from people because it’s so hard just getting motivated to do ANYTHING. I’ve tried to just do one little thing a day but I still just feel so overwhelmed with everything that it feels like no end in sight with responsibility 😥

      I feel like this every day for the past week or more. And I'm on medication. Iv tried to get fresh air, take my toddler outside and play, coffee, showers, face washing all kinds of stuff and I just end up feeling that way. So if any one has answers that would be helpful. And I'm on medication, and not helping much. Iv even tring vitamin B12 and nothing. So I feel you, and understand. Sorry I don't have an answer to your second question tho. 😥
