Ground hog day. Help!

Posted , 7 users are following.

I've been so depressed lately, more than usual. I have nothing in life to look forward to. I get up every day, have breakfast, go for a walk, shower, lunch, go to my stupid pt job for the afternoon, come home, eat dinner, go to bed. Rinse and repeat. Every day in and out. More recently I've been exhausted emotionally and physically. The walks aren't as enjoyable. I have no life...nothing going on. I'm just existing and I'm stuck. Help!!

    Sounds tedious and I'm in the same place so I understand where you are at.  I just see it as the better way of getting through each day and hoping something will happen during the course of the tedium to make it better.  Right now we have very hot weather and that has a negative effect on me - no energy at all.  I can look forward to this ending at some point.  Just keep going - something will improve.  Take care.

    Please, check in with your health care provider.

    You will have better days.

    I always try to get out into nature I love the birds and the bees, flowers trees and the blue skies. Look at nature through the eyes of a child--with wonder and no questions,just enjoy it.

    I will pray for you to find happiness

    You need something else except for the mundane and it sounds like the walking isn't doing much any more,  try walking a different way,  try speaking to different people as being alone physically is not a joke - that's how I felt yesterday.  I went out in the end I needed to.

    Change your routine. When you're home go out to different places. Park, store, movies etc. 👍

    Hi Jill - same here. Some days I don't mind it one bit - but then once in a while it hits me that I'm alone and there seems nothing on the horizon. Everything was the opposite of that for 40 years. Still - things could be much worse...

    Did you talk to the psychologist? He/she may help you to find some motivation to move on. All these routine things make me bored and sad too. Try to find some new hobby, a little change in your life can help a bit.
