I think that I am indeed just a lazy person. I suffer from depression, however not as bad as many others here. I have been lazy as long as I can remember. I am lazy both physically and mentally. I always look for the easy way out.


Even with meds, I really am searching for a magic pill although I know it does not exist. I was always told "you can do it if you want to" which to some extent is true. If I find something that I like or want, I will usually do whatever it takes to get it done. Those situations are very few and far between. I find myself to lazy to even do the things that I enjoy.


I do achieve minor accomplishments, but far too few. I think that I do the least amount of work of the 50,000-person workforce for which I am part of. At least the 200 that work at this same location. That is a scary thought.


I recently and currently am on TRT or HRT-testosterone replacement therapy. I have a thread about it. I was really praying that this was a missed diagnosis from way back. I match many, but not all the symptoms of low T. (I should update that thread)


Anyway I am exactly 3 weeks into 2.5mg/day testosterone treatment. 2.5mg is the lowest dose. So far I have not felt any different. The endo said it might not work. I am not giving up. But if this turns out to be a bust, the only explanation is that I am truly a very, very lazy person.

Oh gawd how I saw myself in your post. I went thru that stage. I went from a cleaning fanatic to not giving a crap and letting everything pile up. Then I became more depressed looking at my house and all of the laundry.
I have been off of meds for 1 1/2 years now,and have to force myself to get things done. Then I feel so much better after scrubbing house and finishing all of the laundry,I wonder why I even got into that mode.
I was told during one of my sessions,that in order to get better you have to change your enviroment. I firmly belive that,and do my best to keep my enviroment a pleasurable state..
You have to push yourself hard,the more you push the easier it gets.

I agree with you that pushing myself is what I need to try and do. however I have never experienced being a cleaning fanatic. I haven't really gone from one extreme to the other such as yourself, I have always been on the unmotivated, lazy side.

It has been over 2 years since we have let my mother into our condo due to clutter and mess. We have set a date for 10/22 for her to come over. One way or another at least the living space will be clean. I am afraid we will end up throwing everything in closets and stairs and cabinets (you get the picture) and thus really fixing nothing.

We ARE GOING TO TRY! That is the plan anyway.

I know I am not lazy but have been called that by my relatives. My problem is that I can not accomplish in any given day what I need to get done. It is very frustrating. Depression and other problems (asthma/pain) contribute to my problems.

My problem has been that others (when I was younger) wanted me to throw my energy into more "acceptable" patterns for a woman. I on the other hand wanted to be educated, do creative work, etc. I did what I wanted without any strokes except for my husband who died. He appreciated the real me the most. I'm stuck with all these negative pictures of myself now that I am all alone.

But time has moved forward and people are begining to realize that women can and should accomplish other things besides...being a housewife, working, having babies, working and never having time to explore themselves as individuals.
I guess I am angry too.
