Really no motivation. Where is my fight?

Posted , 8 users are following.

I am completely lost. Today it's not that I cannot answer phones and, or, talk to anybody as such it's the fact I don't want to. I was doing roughly ok until about two hours ago. Now I'm back at crap setting. And it's noisy in my head. I can't think properly or focus. Don't want to go out. Don't want to exist. It's ridiculous. I'm tired of it.

    Your not alone friend...  I’m in the exact same mode - now . It comes and goes though.  I have a lot of things I want to get done, but the way I feel I just want to lie down and be very “still”, hoping it will pass..  I get frustrated because I feel so tight, wound-up, with a zillion worrisome thoughts running through my head.  It’s disabling, and it’s hard to explain to others. .  I just don’t understand why I can’t just be normal and be happy, steady, and solid.  

    FYI, I’m on 20mg Prozac (6wks). I’m past most of the side effects, but my anxiety still crops up.  I exercise (run) to burn some of the tension and it helps a little.  

    Anyway, your not alone with this battle.  Keep fighting.

      It's not anxiety, sure I have that. It's more depression right now. Sorry to hear you and the rest of the guys who replied are going through it. Does anybody know how to shut themselves up so the mind doesn't feel like thoughts are going warp speed, no matter what they may be of? Thanks. Going to push myself to get doing some things today.

      Hi, thanks for the info. Already on meds. Yes, more depression than anxiety, have a killer headache. Hopefully you are having a better day today, and everybody else is too. No meds work at all for you? I have really only one kind of med that helps more than others I tried but when I had to come off them for different reasons I felt less muggy. If only there was a balance of feeling less stupid and and thoughts going warp speed I think I would have a better ratio of being able to focus and achieve more in the day.

      Hi Ann...I never go out alone..I always have someone with me...and even then I am still anxious...I take xanax  0.5 3 times daily...it only helps for a few hours...not ideal. I know, but I really dont care at this stage...if they help me to leave the house.  then so be it...I am suffering with this for 30 years, and tried everything...my GP couldn't care less.and I feel so alone...now this past year depression has set in....mainly because I want to go out, to do normal things like shopping. or walking..but I cant.because I feel like falling.All my blood tests are normal...it is so hard to live with this...xx.

      You are just same as me. Weve tried all anti deps and all gave me worse effects so now only on benzo to get me out.  Im getting so fed up with this over last few years, surelynthere must be something to help . Have you had lithium, they havent tried it for me as they say ive got anxiety, but now imhave depression too.  I am scared they will talk about ect as i think i couldnt take that.  Have younheard they are trialling ketamine in usa with. Good results.  Theres also trans cranial at private clinics. I am lost though as nhs isnt interested

      How did you get on today? I managed to cook a deliciously untasty dinner and take a call. It was from my inner self telling me my cooking was awful X) It wasn't. The call, not the dinner. The dinner was indeed awful.

      Congrats to you on a full day. Seriously, quite envious. I used to love night times. There used to be less d*******s to deal with and less noise. Waiting for sleep to come. Taking forever, hope you have a good sleep and good weekend.
