Does anyone have the problem, they just dont wanna do ANYTHING, but you DONT feel depressed about it. I stopped school, dont listen to music anymore, stopped Tai Chi, have totally secluded myself from my friends, I cant log onto MSN anymore, but im not having any "down" feeling with it all most of the time, sure I feel down at times, but for the most part it just seems like some mental block, I just feel insane, yet sane to know right from wrong , it is just like some sort of a mental block or something. Something in me says nope dont do that. I used to play bass, was never great, but now im just like bass ? meh. and I get up in the morning and pace up and down the hallway, cause I cant bring myself to "doing" anything... if I try and sit and chill out even if I do feel relaxed it is like every minute feels like an hour, My days seem so frigging long... I wake up at like 5-6am... go to bed around 12-1... When I get up I get really frustrated.. I dont feel "down" but I cant be content with anything... I cant watch t.v, dont feel like being in the kitchen, so I end up going outside every 5 minutes to smoke, I never used to smoke, whacky I started I know, and I HATE IT ! I know when I was younger I was diagnosed with ADD, I sometimes wonder if this is all just a really really bad attention span to the point I cant do anything. Im getting really frustrated with it all. I try to explain to the p-doc how I feel, he says "your depressed" I says... I dont feel depressed. What the hell is wrong with me... can anyone relate to this huge jumbling rant... ahhhh... It is like I cant remember how I used to get through time... There was apoint when I seemed to keep myself busy but now it is like I cant, or I dont want to, and then I get really anxious about it. Ahhhh. The madness. Why cant I just be normal !
im a professional... on an amateur level !

I just wanted you to know that the same thing is happening to me currently, and i totally understand. But I also know why...for me its kind of a type of mixed episode. I cycle so quickly from manic to depressed and back to manic again, that i cant decide what i am even feeling about things. So far my solution is to do things for other people and talk to my husband about my frustrations when it gets to be too much. Mostly, my suggestion is to do something even if it sounds terrible, i find that doing something is better than doing nothing - but thats jsut a personal thing.

Anyway, hang in there, know you are not alone, although it may be something very different for you.

Good luck.

Twiggy, wellbruton may be new to you, but it isn't new to the market.
I take 600mg of buprion a day.  A lot of people would be climbing the
walls on that kind of dose, but I sleep like a baby.  I was taking 800mg
when I first started it.  The psy cut it down to 600 because he was
afraid I would have a seizure.  I weigh 245lbs so I think that the dose
is correct.  I also take Zoloft and Effexor, but things are going much
better now.

I take 200mg of Zoloft a day and 150 of Effexor in the morning and 75mg at night.

Have you ever looked at the symptons of "Chronic Fatigue Syndrome".  I will get

back to you later.

Whether you actually feel deprressed or not, those are all symptoms of depression.  My husband has a similar problem and his doc and I finally convinced him to take an anti depressant and he actually admitted to me yesterday that he feels better and feels like participating in life again.  Hang in there and give the meds a try!
