lately I've been feeling really down. no motivation to do much of anything, and going to work feels like raising someone from the afterlife. I've been feeling really lonely, when I think about people I've loved in the past and I start to get sadder and sadder to the point of crying, but no tears come out. I just hold onto my pillow and wait for the emotional destabilization to go away. it seems like any time I talk about my feelings of sadness they start to leave and I feel fake, I feel like none of this is real? it's the feeling of undeniable fear that someone will listen to me speak about my issues and call me a liar, tell me I "self-diagnosed" myself with depression. I feel depressed, I'm not diagnosed with depression, but I've been feeling depressed for a while now. from little spouts here and there to now feeling empty inside since 2020ish. I don't know what I should do. I think I need to see someone sometimes, but it's mitigated by venting it out to someone, or listening to music that makes me feel better, but at some point I need a real representation of "help". I don't know for sure what I need to be doing.

      I've been in the same boat it's affected me so much that I was put on mandatory leave and I try to think about the things that made me happy but it's just touch at the moment. I'm holding on. I've found it helpful to try and do one thing a day weather it's washing a plate or taking a shower even if I rinse off. Small accomplishments have made me feel better slowly

      A really good motivational tip that has helped me TONS is instead of looking at one task, just do the small thing to start that. So instead of imagining the words DO YOUR LAUNDRY, just think, I'm just gonna get up and pick up that shirt. And then it turns into "Oh, well I guess since I already have the shirt, I'll put it in the laundry basket. Oh, since I've already done this one, might as well do this one too. Since my hamper is full now, why don't I just pick up my hamper and take it to the washing machine. Since I'm already at the washing machine, why not just wash the clothes? You're tricking your brain

      For sure make a gratitude list find a group or a therapist for sure it's hard to open up but letting it out is good journal if you can't find someone and counteract Negitive thoughts easier said then done but it helps
