I have this feeling on and off. I feel like doing nothing. I feel like I might cry. My pain level is not very high right now, but I just can't function. I am not on any meds. I am in a fog. I am easily irritated. I also notice as I try to make this post I can barley type. I don't know what I want to do. I don't want to go back to bed, but I feel tired. I don't want to watch T.V. I just don't know what it is. I feel lost. I have had this feeling in the past and it always passes, but at the time I feel like I'm in my own world. I am supposed to go to work today, but I feel like I can't. I just want to sit here and space out. I don't want to be social. When the phone rings I ignore it. I only want to see my immediate family, beacause they understand and love me. I just want to stay in my lttle cocoon and feel protected from the outside world. I guess it's depression, but I have been on antidepressants before with very bad results. I felt alot worse and almost sucicidal(sp). I guess I will take the day off and lethis work it self out.

Treebo, I've had plenty of days like that.  You just want to sit and stare.  But, what I do is I pick something to do and get busy and then those feelings go away.  Just the moving and accomplishing things helps with those "blah" moods.  If you are to work today, then get ready to go!  You will be fine.  Many times I end up having a good day after a lousy beginning like this. 
Also, don't tell yourself you "can't" do something.  In most cases,  you really can do it but you are convincing yourself that you can't.  That's some depression speaking to you.  You don't want to live your life like that.  So, choose what is important for you to do and move forward.  I hope you have a happily surprising day today!

Treebo, I feel like that when I haven't had restful sleep, like a zombie. It is almost like you have taken a med that puts you in that state but you haven't. Try getting up and moving sometimes that does help.
If you are depressed try again to get help for it. Fibromites tend to be low on serontonin.
luv and hugs

Treebo. I am not trying to diagnose you. I just want to share something that I suffer with. I am bipolar. If you are bipolar, often just taking an antidepressant has bad effects. A person with bipolar needs mood stabilizers to help with the antidepressant to control the levels of seretonin.
I sometimes have days like you are having, even on my meds. But I would be that way all the time, or have other bad feelings and attitudes and actions without the meds.
I hope if you continue to suffer, you will seek professional help.
I pray that this will pass and you will be ok without professional intervention.

Treebo, I think it is great that you decided to go to work. Just making that decision
got you jumpstarted. There have been days I had to force myself to get my focus, or I could
and I have walked around the house like a total spacecat.

If you are having trouble on a daily basis, please let your doctor know.
