Can’t continue like this

Can’t go on feeling so low.
I’m neglecting my duties like spending time with my puppy.

I look horrible and feel like hell.

Although the Depakote is stopping me from cycling downward towards suicidal thinking it has not stopped me from being depressed and dead.

I cannot live like this especially as I am needed by my father and puppy.

I have very little motivation to do simple basic things like shave and brush my teeth right now.

I haven’t shaved in weeks.

I may make an earlier appointment to see my psychiatrist.

This is awful.

Sorry you are having a hard time @Wave . I have similar motivation problems. They are hard to overcome.

Yes, I’ve had a number of anti-depressants make me manic also. Prozac, Zoloft both sent me to the hospital. I feel so lucky I can take an SSNRI without the same problem. If only there was something you pdoc could think of. Another type of med.

All I can suggest is try cutting out coffee. That improved things for me. It might do the same for you.

I hope you start to feel better soon, you deserve good things my friend! I know how it can be with low motivation, it makes the simple things so hard to do.

Sorry you are feeling this way, @Wave. Whenever I feel depressed or low, I turn on my favorite music and just take it easy. Hope you feel better soon

Hope you feel better soon! When I was like that my pdoc put me on Cymbalta. Too bad you can’t take AD’s, maybe your pdoc will have some ideas.

I’m sorry you’re feeling so down @Wave Moving up your pdoc appointment is a good idea. I hope things improve soon.

I’m sorry you feel so low, but remember feelings are cyclical and they are sure to change soon.

Have you tried one from every class to be sure? SSRI? SNRI? NDRI? TCA? MAOI?
