How would you describe any fatigue you have had from depression?
I ask as I'm struggling with fatigue and running out of options for physical causes, leaving me depression as a cause. and comparing my symptoms with other depression sufferers would help me judge my fatigue. I'd describe myself as depressed, but as a result of fatigue and other health challenges rather than vice-versa; sure, I've had depression on-and-off over the past 35 years (I'm now in my late 50s), but this fatigue hit me before my current depression and, looking back, I had some fatigue issues before my first depression.
I describe mine as a mental fatigue, feeling like having lead capes on my shoulders, brain and eyes; they drag my eyes and motivation down, I have to make a big effort to lift the weights to do anything and the weights push me to sitting down again. My body itself doesn't feel fatigued and I can exercise well for my age.
