Hi Silverlily

Welcome to Healing Well.
A lot of people here can understand how you are feeling. When my depression was really bad, it took so much effort to even get out of bed on a morning. I use to try adn set myself a target every day and It felt great whn I achieved it. Some days it was only little things such as walking to the end of the street and back. I tried to find a hobby and I tried to exercise. The exercise was hard as I couldn't motivate myself to do it but once I had, I felt really good after it.
Do you have any help with your depression?

Take care and keep posting

cherish all your happy moments....they make a fine cushion for old age

i was diagnosed twelve years ago.

i have been through several years of therapy, with some pretty decent LCSWs, but i also had a couple duds too.  i've been in groups, and even "checked in" for a month in 2003.

i have been on one or more meds for most of these twelve years.  i think my max was five at once.  various med "recipes" included prozac, zoloft, wellbutrin, serzone, effexor, xanax, trazadone, ambien, cymbalta, and a couple others i can't remember.

i did a few years of yoga, been in and out of a marriage, moved about the country a bit.

nothing quite took.

things got bad a few months ago.  i ended up quitting my job.  i weaned off cymbalta with my doc's help before i quit, because i am now uninsured.  i remain unmotivated and isolated.  i RARELY leave my apartment, and go day on end without talking to another human being.

i read a lot.
