Does depression cause you to not be able to function under the simplist of tasks?  Most seem sooo overwhelming to do that I just can't do them.  I'm forcing myself to get up each day and get dressed and make my bed and eat but other than that nothing holds my attention and my concentration and motivation are gone.

Very much so for me Ocean, the smallest job can seem too hard sometimes.

Yes Ocean, this can happen. Try to take it one moment at a time. Don't give up because it will be better in time. Hang in there my friend.

Keep posting.

Depression can be paralyzing...and the less we do, the guiltier we feel so it can become a vicious cycle. It is essential that you set one very small goal ( a load of laundry, or vacuum or even shower) and do that each day, and add one more when it seems realistic. Otherwise total inertia will set in. Take it from an expert-LOL!!!

Eventually, you will have good days, sometimes we just have to muddle thru the best we can. Try to get outside for 10-15 minutes, for the sun and fresh air, listen to music, breathe deep, on my worst days, I cannot seem to be able to read (and books are my passion) so I have to do other things, mindless chores...but try to push youurself a little...every little bit helps

Take care-i really understand

Ocean...the others are right, it does sound like depression. Maggie is right set small goals for yourself and get outside just for a bit. Hang in there it will get better.

Ditto. I have that same problem, especially when anxiety sets in on top of it. After several days of the anxiety where I could hardly sit still, or lie still, I had a work day that started out reluctantly, a little shaky, but ended pretty well. At the moment I'm feeling better than I have in over a week. Still I'm keeping my Dr. appointment Tuesday because I want to be stable. It's all the more difficult because this is a brand new game for me. 60 years of trials and tribulations with only headaches. I started cracking up when I got the boss from hell. I can always tell I'm on the upswing when my appetite comes back and I start thinking about what I want to do next. Right now I'm just marveling at the sense of peace I feel and wondering how I got it. I have been practicing the Healing Codes. Maybe they're finally kicking in?!

And yes, the last few days I did only what I felt up to, which wasn't much. Sometimes it was plot to go to the bathroom, then wash my face, and so on.
