I feel like there is something wrong with me :/

So I am not diagnosed with anything. I have and always have had a great life.

My problems come and go. Like procrastination, felling overwhelmed, felling tiered and like I just don't want to do anything at all. Sometimes I am the amazing person I want to be, being very busy doing fun thing and doing things I don't like.

Here is an example. About 3 days ago I was awesome doing all the dishes and the laundry was caught up and I took the kids the the park and library, also I made 3 good meals. Then the next day I did stuff but not nearly as much then today I basically did nothing.. I just felt like blah

I have always been this way, what could this be? Anyone else have this kind of problem?

What have you done to help? I just feel like I don't want to live like this anymore.

Quoting ambergem: Yes. Exactly.

Went to a primary care physician. She prescribed Wellbutrin XL and said get counseling because it's just as important. I had to go to brand name only. Generic was what I was on before counselor highly suggested brand. It helped a lot once I made that switch. My counseling helps a lot. The med kicks me in gear and keeps me balanced.

Oh check out FlyLady.net too. My counselor just suggested it. Amazing!!! Started this Mon signed up for emails and started following it. It's designed for depressed mothers who need to get their homes in order by a woman who was one herself. I've made so many improvements already for keeping up with the house and patient, kind motivation. I want to yell this from the rooftops!!!

I am like you in that there are days I don't get anything done. If I were you, I would make an appt with a therapist and let them evaluate you. You may be suffering from depression.

Thank you ladies, I will be making an appointment. I just needed someone to tell me that I'm the only one like this and that there is something I can do.

I also have a huge problem with falling asleep and staying asleep, I always wake up every night at least once.

Have you turn your Will over to Jesus
and ask for His Will for your life???
I prayed you have a blessed night!
((Love & hugs)))
