Does anyone else have severe lethargy when in a depressive state? I always feel like I’m just being lazy, but doing anything is physically and mentally exhausting

      Yes totally, as I lay in bed at 3 in the afternoon. I did shower tho. Props for that 🙈

      Yes it can be very draining. I'm tired all of the time because of my autoimmune disease by depression makes it worse.

      Mine mixes with anxiety and I get sort of paralyzed and can’t sort out what to do.

      👍I sometimes feel that way more often then not. Such as today while working I had a hit of depression I had to remind myself to breath and just tackle my next steps but even that seemed hard. I happens to forget my meds so I was kicking myself even more but at that moment I just wanted to be at home in bed. Many hugs. Thank you for sharing

      I have a lot of trouble with fatigue in general and also executive dysfunction so I definitely can relate.

      Me too, it just feels like everything takes a lot more energy than it used to

      Absolutely! Been experiencing this off and on for a long time. Currently on because of work stresses and a new pet that has more energy than my partner bargained for. I feel really guilty for not doing more around the house but I’m genuinely exhausted all the time. And my bed is so comfortable 🥲

      It’s so difficult from almost any angle. I find comfort in using the Finch app, and learning about other ways to manage my energy such as Spoon theory. You are not alone. 💕

      how i would explain it to other people is that it feels like you’re waist deep in mud & so it’s hard to even take a single step

    • HopefulHufflepuff

      I do feel judged by people close to me for it. I wish knew how to explain it in a way they would understand

      I hear ya! And it’s hard to explain to other people because it’s not something a lot of people understand

      Yes. I know what you mean. It can feel like a debilitating exhaustion. And I just start feeling guilty and anxious over things not getting done. I've recently found out that part of this is also due to inflammation and gut health, which influences both my mental health and my physical energy.
