In answer to your question "What do you do for your depression?". I take medications and go to therapy. I try to walk a lot too. I try to keep busy. My depression has been in remission for about a year now or more.
If I were you, I would start slowly. Maybe make a list of the things that you would to accomplish and check each thing off as you do it. You may be looking at the whole big picture when you could be breaking it down into pieces that are more managable. That is the one thing that I can come up with. Break it up into smaller tasks and take them one at a time.
I always say take life one day at a time. Do not dwell on the past or worry about the future. This is an easier way to live. And it works for me. Spending time dwelling on the past or worrying about the future takes a lot of energy. That tires us out. So think about it and see if you are doing this, it could be what is depleting your energy. Start out slowly. Usually once you get going, it creates more energy to complete the task at hand. Like doing the dishes, it always seems like such a big job when you look at them, but if you gradually start them, before you know it you are about done. At least that is how it is for me.
I wish you the best. I hope that others will come on and share their experiences with you and give you some tips on coping with these things.
Take care, keep posting.
