I am a 22 year old female and everything in my life should be making me happy but I'm simply just not. I am constantly down, have no energy and I am not interested in doing anything and get little enjoyment out of anything. That is, except food. I am one of those people who turns to food and have gained a little weight recently. I would in no circumstances regard myself as fat yet I can't help but have no body confidence.
I am not having any suicidal thoughts by any means but, I do worry about being a burden on those around me and have somewhat distanced myself. I find myself not enjoying life and leading a boring life that seems to be passing me by.
I certainly do not want to try anti depressants since I feel my condition is probably mild however, I wonder if anyone has any tips on how to just enjoy the simple things more? More energy is probably the best solution however I cannot find the energy in the slightest to get out of bed before midday unless I have to for work or, to even tidy up and clean. I used to be very clean person and now even my dishes get left until they literally need doing because I have nothing left to use. On my days off i do nothing except sit in front of the TV and play monotonous games on my phone. Caffeine and sugar does little to help me.
I have ready a few articles recently about a connection between depression and the contraceptive pill however, I have been using this for around 5 years and it is only really the last few months that I have felt this way so I am unsure as to whether this could be the connection.
Does anyone have any thoughts on what I could do to perk myself up?
