Sadsack, welcome to HW. I have been feeling the same way for the last two and a half years. I tried 2 jobs since but quit them due to stress. I am home everyday and My finances are a mess. I began thinking.. am I lazy or not? I asked a friend who knows me well and she assured me that before getting this low with depression she admired how I was a get up and go person and how hard I used to work.
I say this to say that I completely understand why lazy would enter your mind. You are not lazy but depression makes one very unmotivated. Added to that the AD we take most times make us feel tired. I am really sorry about
the flooding of your home. I bet you look at it and dont know where to start. I hope when the ice melts the damage wont be that bad.
Maybe you could try a stressfree job for maybe 2 to 3 days per week and see how it goes. Getting out really helps but its the motivation to get out that keeps us trapped. I wish you all the best and keep us posted.
We are more than what we do, much more than what we accomplish, far more than what we possess.
