Setting goals helps you focus on something to give you hope in moving forward. With depression it can cause you to give up and not care about anything. Does your depression get really bad that you have no interest in anything at all?
Absolutely, some days it's worse than others but the most important thing is to recognise that it's the challenge that is making you feel like that... force yourself if you have to, to keep on making notes and writing down goals... it really does work to help you feel like you are actually accomplishing things
When you have nobody around or to talk to you can't set goals...i have a serious illness andl its an unseen illness..very scary being alone and sick and nothing to look forward to...
Yes, it does. I write almost every day. But sometimes that just isn't enough. I find myself walking around feeling hollow inside. pressure on the outside of me. These are the times when a drink would feel just fine. Then it passes, that becomes my goal for that moment. Then the mirror becomes me and I live for another day.
Absolutely. Sometimes I wonder where I'll be in five years or in ten. Sometimes I wonder if I'll even last another week. My depression makes everything seem overwhelming and impossible, so sometimes I don't even bother trying.
