At the first of the year, I began feeling useless and hopeless which in March was followed by extreme anxiety which led to 13 lost days and hospitalization.  After beginning a cocktail of medications, zyprexa was eventually added which zapped the anxiety thank the Lord.  Unfortunately, the endlessly long days remain.  I have lost all joy in work which I had prior to the first of this year.  Since I always loved life and work prior to the first of January, I think I must be left with depression.  I take zyprexa when needed and Lamictal and Lexapro all the time.  Maybe I need a different or additional anti-depressant.  I know I should be thankful that I am functional now that the anxiety is under control but I can barely drag myself out of bed in the morning and I can barely do more than cook and do laundry at home. I am able to work now, also, though there is no enjoyment.  I sleep whenever I can.   Since this is all new as of Jan 08, do you think this is a new form of depression for me?

Yes, that's true. It does sound like a kind of depression, but nonetheless, you still aren't feeling "normal" and so you need to talk about it with your psych. He/she will probably evaluate your meds.

Thanks for your comments.

 

I am going to try to treat this with exercise.  I don't exercise because I am depressed which causes me to be more depressed, it's a vicious circle which I am going to try to break.
