How are you today?
I thought I'd open this discussion to talk about depression in the day-to-day.
Depression can sometimes make it hard to get out of bed, to complete daily tasks, or socialize with others.
What about you? How does your depression impact you in the day-to-day? What do you do to fight it?

Also, if you haven't already seen it, we also have an ongoing survey on this topic, assessing symptoms and impacts on the everyday life of patients affected by depression. You can check it out here: Survey: Impact of Depression on Everyday Life

For me its hard to do anything. Sometimes I won't shower,eat,answe the phone. I have no motivation its like I'm stuck with the thought in my head and trapped in a space not moving. It's a very lonely feeling. I get to a point thst i just miss work. Wont call wont show up for days. I end up looking around my house and the mess builds and dishes in the sink. I judt can't do anything and i feel like i dont want to do anything. Like there is no point to anything. It is hard. My daughter shows up and forces me to do somethings at times and open the windows or get outside.

For me depression has been very hard it's somethingthat I've been struggling with since I was younger and it's just gotten worse and worse I don't really know what this group is honestly I'm not really used to writing groups like this but I've been trying everything and so I thought maybe this would help I've been on five different depression medications and I went to a therapist but nothing seems to help sometimes I don't even want to get up in the morning I just want to sleep all day I have no motivation to live anymore which sucks because I am pregnant and I'm trying to get better for the baby but it's just so hard with everything going on my boyfriend is a recovering drug addict and I've been through so much stuff that I can't even being to recover I just I want to be happy I want this baby to be happy I just don't know what to do I don't have anybody else all my family is disconnected from me and it just sucks but maybe this group will help anyway I'm very antisocial so I don't really don't even know how to talk to people like that and sometimes being around a lot of people gives me a panic attack but I'm willing to try anything for this baby so thank you for listening and part of my story

I Just joined this group and I must say that I am so relieved to know that it's just not all in my head. I was not sure about the symptoms that I have been experiencing, staying in the bed all day, overeating while binge watching television, walking through the junkie house from the kitchen back to the bedroom with more food, (not even hungry) feeling disgusted. The sadness along with no energy is what gets me.

I have been struggling with depression for most my life however it had not been as bad as it is now I have been fighting it for a couple months but now it's so bad I have not left my house in a week I haven't
watch TV, or played any of my games I just seat here once in awhile I check this page, and once in awhile I will trun on some music but i am so tired of feeling miserable and my anxiety,and depression is paralyzing

Lately I’ve been feeling so alone and lost I don’t know why .. I have my kids a business good future wife but I feel like I’m bottled up and no one listens and if they try I can’t explain myself right and I start arguments or come off mean I can’t find the middle and I’ve been hiding from my feelings but it’s not working I feel even more pushed away
