I feel like I havent rested or slept, when I have.
Everything is annoying me, edgy smhair moody, dried up and just ugh. I guess its more symptoms of depression, I just dont want to do any of this today, and my list is long. I am at work pretending to function, but I had better find a way to function and get some work done, or I am gonna have problems.
Sorry to just yak out a bunch of negativity, I REALLY dont want to be like this.
I hope everyone else is having a better day. You all deserve the best.

Tired sleep is a symptom of depression. I have problems with that too. I take ambien to help me get a rested sleep. But my insurance company is balking on it, so I will have to find something else.

Try to focus today and maybe do some meditation at night. Try to clear your mind so that you can do your work. I hope that this helps. I know how hard it is to function when you don't feel good.

One day at a time my friend. Stay in the moment. Best wishes to you today.

Hugs, Karen

Karen is right on about poor sleep being a symptom of depression, so getting your depression treated may help with your sleep.

The reverse is also true -- depression can be a symptom of sleep disorders, so sometimes getting a sleep disorder treated can help with depression.

In either case, sticking with it & getting treatment can really help. Hang in there!

I too am in the soup today. Did some yard work which helped and read for a bit. I find that activity helps but things seem to annoy me all the time.

I saw my Doc last week and he is going to double my Welbutrin. I asked if I should get off medication entirely, but he doesn't think I should.

Are you taking anything for depression and if so how are you affected by it ? In any event, I know you will get through this bad period.

I have found it useful to scale my days on a 1 to 10 basis. 1 I feel great. 10 the pits. Today I'm a 5. ( Sunny and Warm here ) I have also

taught myself to count to 10 before reacting to an annoyance. You need these little tricks to keep on track.

You are making progress. I can tell yeah

I just read an article that said a part of depression can be cured by getting proper sleep, since depression tend to mess with your inner clockwork. Maybe body-known hormone based pills like melatonine can help. I use those myself, and there are wonderful. The (Dutch) article can be found here:

So maybe a visit to your doctor to help you out with your sleep can be a good start.

All the very best my friend!
