Feeling pretty low

I was doing so well mood-wise for months and now all of a sudden, the bottom fell out.

Felt very low for a week, but it’s getting worse.

Thank God I see my psychiatrist in a couple of days.

I don’t know how much more of this I can endure.

We’ll I had my Lamictal dose lowered a bit but this was months ago.

I don’t know if it’s related but it could be.

25mg was giving me cognitive issues so she lowered it to 12.5mg

Well, exercise lifts my mood. You could try vigorous exercise to give you a temporary boost.

I hardly have the motivation to walk
I certainly can’t do any kind of exercise not even walking slowly. @deezinageorge

Thank you @everhopeful @Aziz @jukebox

You mean the negatives of schizophrenia or a low mood/feeling tired?

I suffer from negatives from my meds and from depression (low moods)

Now I’m experiencing depression (low mood)

Oh no :frowning: I’m so sorry. I hope your dr can help you feel better soon.

Sorry @Wave, I hate depression. Luckily for me my antidepressant works for me. I don’t know if you can take antidepressants but if you can’t then try to walk outside every day and get some sun until you start feeling better. Being outside and in the sun should help with depression. I know when I get depressed and have troubling thoughts at times it helps to go for a walk outside especially when it’s sunny and I can think things over.

Sometimes I have to push myself to go outside and walk, but afterwards I feel better.

Think about the prize!

You certainly can walk. You just have to push past the feeling of not wanting to. It’s difficult, but the endorphins from getting some exercise will improve your mood. So will getting some sunshone- vitamin d!

I like walks late night or really early morning when the sun is rising. It’s quiet and no one is around. Serene.
