What's wrong with me!!

Postby saytara2000 » Wed Dec 05, 2018 8:31 pm

I'm having trouble doing what I'm supposed to do (have to), and that covers almost everything, eating, sleeping studying, going to university, going out.
Everything I know I should (must, supposed to) do, when the time comes to do it, I just find absolutely zero desire to do it and I go distract myself with whatever to pass the time. It has been like this for more than a year now.
Any idea what's wrong with me?

Hi. Having no desire to do anything sounds a lot like depression. At least in my experience. I have been battling major depression for years and am currently in the healing process. There are also other symptoms besides the „loss of motivation“ for example fatigue, feeling exhausted mostly, low moods, eating too much or not enough, sleeping not enough or too much etc. Of course I can‘t give you a diagnosis, but it would be good if you‘d go to a psychiatrist to get a correct diagnosis.

It does sound a lot like depression. Anxiety and feeling overwhelmed can go along with that.
Also, when was your last complete physical exam? There are chemical and endocrine imbalances that can make us lethargic, depressed and distracted.
It would be good to get this diagnosed and treated so that you can be everything you want to be.
Best of luck to you. :D

Yeah, it seems to be a depression. I felt the same way few years ago and you know just remember that it's totally fine with you and work on a positive attitude. And also find a good psychologist, real professional will help you :wink:

Have you considered ... that nothing is wrong with you? We can't diagnose you, but what I can say that being an adult is rather boring.

I find that having kids and being married is soooo boring. Parties, sex, and dancing drunk is fun! Do what makes you happy 8)
