Is there any way you could get a part time job, say 3 days a week or something? Because that might be easier to cope with :dontknow:

I'm feeling quite low (not for any reason in particular), plus really tired even though I've spent most of the afternoon asleep. Depression is really exhausting...
I'm already employed, 4 Days a week. It goes quite well, but since the company moved offices i'm not sure that i'm enjoying it as much.

I've had a nasty day today. It's really made me think. Some good things happened, some bad things happened. My Mum will simply say, focus on the positives. But thats almost impossible when I was over 2 hours late for work, which stuffed up my day completely...! All because of a Trainee Bus Driver... ARGH!!!

My whole Job situation has really made me think that i'm no good for work if I can't drive. Truth is, it's not going to happen... I am incapable of riding a bike without crashing, let alone a 2 tonne weapon of mass destruction...!

Maybe I should consider a change in career... Hmmm, like my folks will let that happen :rolleyes:

How is everyone today

I hate days like those, when you cant do anything and you feel crap. You cant talk because theres some **** stuck at the back of your throat and your stomach feels like it's a washing machine.

I'm just failing with everything and not coping with anything at the moment. Getting out of bed/showering/eating is the biggest effort at the moment never mind assignments. I just want to give up. Off to CBT now. Bet she'll try and convince me I'm not a failure. Ha, I know I am. Sorry.

Don't say that. What are you doing over the Easter holiday? Going home? or was it you that's living at home already? (sorry, I don't remember if it was you or not ) Will a break from uni work be a good thing?

Can you actually recover from depression and actually feel happy without the aid of medication?

Also would you say having depression make you feeel as though you want to be left alone and not in the mood to socialise?

I'm pretty sure people have recovered from depression without medication (I'm talking about true/strong depression) although I doubt many people manage it when its really severe.

Yes depression can made you want to be solitary and not want to socialise. It can make you feel like not wanting to go out anywhere at all.

I would agree with that to a certain extent. When I was seriously depressed I didn't want to do anything. Just walking to the fridge for some milk was too much effort. Walking to the bus stop was too much effort.

Once I was on the right medication, things improved. I still have depression, but it's not as bad fortunately.

I started my citalopram today and it made me feel so sick :cry:
I talked to one of my friends about it today and i think she found it kind of confusing cause she said she thought i was happy. Does anyone thing you can be so used to not feeling anything or being unhappy that you try and covering it up by appearing happy on the outside?
I rather like this place, i may stay for a while :grouphugs:

I always tried to not tell friends about things. Alot of the time people don't understand.
Also, being dead and empty on the inside and appearing happy on the outside is something i do all the time now.

anyway :hugs: hope the meds go ok for you.

(i'm Luke by the way :hi:)

I tried to explain it to her that it was they type where there's a chemical unbalance in the brain rather than problems giving me depression and she understood that. I'm living with her next year and she's a incredible influence on me, she makes me laugh and it helps.

Oh and i'm Charlotte :hi: thanks for your reply :redface:
