    I have severe depression and I don't do the things I enjoy anymore. All I want to do is stay in bed all day I have no motivation at all.

    Has anyone got any ideas?

    Go to your GP and get diagnosed.
    he will either give you some medication or arrange for you to get acess to a therapist.

    Take it one day at a time and try to put some structure in each day by doing things.

    I'm a big believer in getting regular exercise as it helps you get out and also makes you feel better.

    Films and music can cheer you up. Vol work helps you socialise with others.

    Sorry your feeling like this, do you have any close friends to talk to about this, or a gf/bf perhaps?

    Maybe it's your body, if you're not feeling well or aren't as energetic as u used to be you could exercise/eat better.

    There's always a story to why people go into depression. You have to find yours. Whenever you're feeling something, express to someone you trust and is close to you so you do not make yourself burst with all of it inside. Also find a way you can express yourself. I advise you not to go on tablets as they have really bad side-effects. You can even talk to me if you want. x

    Then find another Dr. I cnat imagine a Dr would not prescribe you some anti depressants or book you for a therapist in a diagnosis of depression.

    Attack it from the angle of making your life more structured and looking after yourself.

    Deal with the issues that have caused you to be depressed.

    Its difficulty when you have no motivation but take baby steps and build on them.
    Nothing dramatic, but you start somewhere.

    Go for a walk 5 mins, do some shopping, read an article etc. Try and do x things a day and keep adding stuff. Take it one day at a time.

    Force yourself to get out of bed everyday for a week and go to the gym usually by that time you have started to see little results and got some complements that will fuel you going more

    Been there. First off, awesome that you've realised it's a problem and you've reached out for help and advice. Shows you are already on the road to recovery, you want to get well.

    Make an appointment to see your GP, but even more important I'd say, try and talk to a councillor. In my experience not only are they trained medical and mental health experts, who've seen the full range of every issue, they're in the profession because they're genuinely, honestly beautiful warm human beings, that just want to help people.

    Standard stuff. Don't eat junk food or drink too much alcohol. Learn how to cook from scratch healthy nutritious meals from fresh ingredients. Drink plenty of water, stay hydrated. Get a good nights sleep every night. If you are single, try and meet someone you like. Have passionate sex. Not to be vulgar, but having an intimate partner makes a huge difference to quality of life. Or get a pet. But don't do rude things to it!

    Whatever you do, OP, I would really advise not talking to this person.

    If you would like me to go over what is wrong with your post, I will happily do so.

    Ho ho ho, so funny. Almost as funny as you thinking counselors are "mental health experts". :toofunny:

    yep my idea is to force yourself to do things. i'm fortunate enough to have never been medically diagnosed with any kind of mental condition but i know what it's like to feel demotivated and unhappy and i can tell you it's a self-fulfilling beast that feeds on itself. there'll be discomfort at first but i think if there is nothing physically stopping you from getting up and just doing things then you really have to force it before things get worse and you begin to miss opportunities.
