I was feeling positive last night, looking or ward to having something that gave me a sense of purpose to get me out of this rut. But then I just couldn't get up. It felt almost painful to get up. Depression is one manipulative b******.
I managed to get up to brush my teeth and the voices of reasoning came "it's not that bad if you don't go in" "just tell them you're sick people get sick from time to time" "they probably won't miss you anyway"
And then I rang in sick and went back to sleep, even though I normally get up early when I'm not working! I'm trying not to beat myself up too much cos that's only going to make me worse, but most of me thinks I'm just lazy. Is this normal with depression or am I just using it as an excuse?
