I think I've felt this way since I remember.  My school holidays were spent on my own, hiding and shunning myself from society.  This trait has continued throughout my 20's, but I always thought I'd grow out of them.  I haven't.
 
I've done nothing for 10 years, except for hurting people because any time I'm with people I feel empty, unwhole, and need to take alcohol to fix the problem, resulting in me not being myself and acting out of character.  And I've had enough. 
 
I'm drinking right now, which I know is ridiculous, but it's all I have right now.  Other people have moved on with their lives.... I'm still stationary.  I can't move.  Does anyone else understand me?

I don't think you're just lazy and apathetic...I've dealt with the same feelings of emptiness, it could easily be a sign of depression or some other mood disorder. Or maybe you just need new things to fill that feeling of a void in your life A therapist could help, or possibly medication... Things will get better, don't give up hope

Depression makes us apatheic which leads to doing nothing which leads to more guilt...it is an awfel cycle but you can break it

First, put down the bottle, it hasn't cured your problems yet, has it? Don't think it will in future...it is a depressant, just make you worse
Second, now that yourhand is free, pick up the telephone and call alocal mental health clinic (have them even for those w/ no money) and get to a counselor. AAt least try an AA meeting, anything but isolating yourself in that bottle

Been there, dear, I'm not just talking...good luck keep posting

Hello, I agree with most of the others, you are not lazy or apathetic. I struggle with my depression but avoid alcohol as it simply makes me more depresed. I guess you have heard all the advice before but here is some: get some exercise like walking or going to the gym or anything. Another one see a movie or do some shopping, it is important to keep busy because if you dont your mind will think inward and you will feel more depressed. Good luck, we all need support and this site is good for that.

Your time will come when you move on with your life. You are actually doing so. Time is passing by. But you need to find some interests. Do you have a counselor? They can help us find that path that we want to take. Give us ideas, send us down that road. You need to get motivated with your life. Only you can do that for yourself. Try not to drink. It just makes you more depressed.

Take care of yourself.
