    There are many days where I feel like I can't get out of bed and its really affecting my attendance and how I feel later on in the day. I just feel so emotionally exhausted and down and low and tired and it feels like getting out of bed is trying to climb a mountain. I end up missing school and then have a bunch of things to catch up on and then I feel guilty for not going in etc My school has been very understanding but I keep telling them that I'm going to try harder to come to school but how can I? What are some things you do to help you get out of bed in the morning?? I was thinking maybe if I plan my outfit the night before because I always feel a little more motivated to get up if I know what I'm going to wear/have an outfit in mind. I'm also thinking to stop the snooze button and just force myself to get out of bed as soon as I wake up although sometimes when I wake up then snooze for like half an hour I am able to wake up that half an hour later.

    I had the exact same problem. Try to sleep early what ever the time is. Then make sure u go to the shower straught outa ur bed. It will also help to have someone to wakeu up .

    The snooze button is literally my bae! I keep my alarms close together, like one every two minutes to annoy myself into getting up. Maybe be try packing your bag the night before too. Also if you are foodie, make a yummy breakfast the night before (like flap jacks, nutella sanwiches or something) so you have it to look foward to in the morning. I can also send you some easy microwave mug breakfasts which are pretty healthy if you want
    Also set up a positive energetic playlist to make you feel pumped and motivated in the morning and play it in full blast!

    I completely understand this feeling. Do you feel better once you do get out of bed? It's hard because on one hand the advice to just get out of bed is somewhat relevant because you probably will feel better if you do. However I know that it really is not that simple.

    How is your sleep cycle/sleeping patterns?

    How about you think about what you most want for breakfast (even if it's not that healthy) and just so you look forward to getting up to eating breakfast? I feel so basic for suggesting food as a solution.

    Even if I get 10 hours of sleep, 8 hours of sleep or even 4 hours of sleep, I always feel so tired in the morning...

    My mothers way of waking me up is horrible.

    Dragging myself to shower first thing is another task but I guess I'll feel better when I get out.

    No I don't feel better once I get out of bed if I've woken up feeling really low etc which happens at least twice a week :sad:

    I try to get at least 7 hours of sleep although sometimes it goes to 5 hours or 9 hours. Although lately I've been trying to fix my sleeping pattern but I still feel so exhausted when I wake up no matter how many hours I've slept.

    I never have time for a nice breakfast in the morning :getmecoat: maybe that's one of the problems :lol: I'm literally always late :L

    I feel the same way EVERYDAY but I remind myself of the consequences of not attending e.g. missing important content, attendance, inside jokes (always miss the best ones when I skip school) etc. Going to school also makes revision a lot easier cause you're actually revising instead of learning some things for the first time.
    I also plan a really good breakfast and sort out my backpack and outfit the night before so I don't have a silly 'reason' to not go in.

    I have depression, I go therapy and I'm on medication.

    Should have made my OP anon :grumble:
    Depending on how long this has been going on, have you considered that it might be the medication? Many antidepressants have tiredness as a side effect and can make it a lot harder to get out of bed.

    I don't. If I wanna stay in bed all day then I do. And it's pretty damn often.

    one of the side effects is insomnia and I felt like this way before I started medication

    If you dont mind me probing (apologies but I am a bit curious about these things):
    how long ave you been experiencing symptoms?
    how many hours sleep do you usually get?;
    are there any changes in your diet /exercise regime / what is your normal exercise/dietary regime (also when do you eat/exercise before going to bed)?
    have you had any changes in your life(health/social/school/relationships)?
    is your condition affected by whether?
    have you tried anything to combat changes in your mood (be it see GP/pharmacist for medication or counselling)
