WHat do you do when you feel totally pooped out and like nothing can get you thrilled anymore?

Spring arrived, the sun is shining and all I want to do is close the curtains and sleep, sleep, sleep. Unfortunately I have to work. So as you might imagine: I'm doing a miserable job right now. I'm just about to drop everything and say: "i don't care." Unfortunately my family's welfare depends on my income. That's why I keep going. But it's not fun and hasn't been for the last 6 - 12 month, I guess.
Can anybody offer some cheering up?

  • I hear ya on this one.........all i want to do is sleep too on my days off. All i do is Go, Dog, Go!!! I go to work, come home and work some more.....Laundry, make dinner, clean alittle before and after dinner. Kids help with dishes, unload and load dishwasher, take out trash. I'm tired when i go to bed and tired when i get up. (Once i have coffee after awhile....I'm good until i get home.) But I want to stay home and not work anymore so bad but we can't afford it!! Go for a walk, walk alittle further each week!!

  • Sounds like you are depressed. You might need to go see a doctor about it. Go sit outside in the sun for a while each day and take a walk too. It might help. I heard the sun and walking helps with depression.

  • You seem to be depressed. Please ask your family doctor for a referral to a therapist

  • One thing you can do is get moving- dance, go for a walk, do some yoga- anything to get your blood pumping, even if you don't feel like it. It will raise your mood level. Try getting out in the sun- the bright light can also help raise it. Make sure to, no matter what, make time for something you really enjoy doing, even if it is as simple as a hot bath and a cup of coffee. I hope these things help you!
