Was Wondering On Anyone's Bad Days Do They Ever Feel Numb Inside?

Was Wondering On Anyone's Bad Days Do They Ever Feel Numb Inside?

Hard to describe this but I mean like does anyone feel numb at times but just carries on with daily life. Like as if you don't want to do anything. You feel nothing but no point explaining to anyone knowing they won't understand as they haven't been through depression and that?

I feel like that numb but low in mood, no motivation, lack of interest no energy to do anything I feel so lifeless and empty inside with little bouts of fleeting sadness that washes over me. Mostly… read more

How Do You Keep Motivated To Stay Active And Healthy?

How Do You Keep Motivated To Stay Active And Healthy?

My depression comes in waves and so does anxiety. I used to work out all the time and easy healthy all the time, but as I got older my depression and anxiety got worse. It's like "one week on, one week off" when it comes to exercising and eating right.

How do some of you keep motivated through depression to do some daily exercise?

I too find music to lift my mood, especially country because it tells a story. I play Jason Alden and Tim McGraw.

Has Anyone Used A Service Dog For Depression?

Has Anyone Used A Service Dog For Depression?

I'm thinking of getting a puppy in a year or so and train them to aid my depression. Maybe have them do deep pressure on my bad days. Has anyone used a dog for this kind of thing? I've found a breed that fits all the requirements of the family (not a lot of barking, not a lot of shedding), and I'm hoping this would be helpful, since I've tried so many different meds and have yet to find a good fit. Would love to hear others' experience. Thank you.

Crying

Crying

I read over and over about people like us crying a lot. I’ve never been able to, as far back as I can remember. It’s not that it bothers me so much . I just don’t understand it. I was just told my favorite fur baby died this morning. Not a tear. Not much feeling. In fact almost a feeling of relief , one less thing to have to care about. I can feel my mother watching me for something. I guess I’ll have to give her some kinda reaction so she’ll feel I’m grieving.
Kinda sick huh.

I have fear and anxiety over future events that I should cry at that I won't be able to.

Has Anyone Done Genomind & How Where Your Results?

Genomind is a test to determine which medications will work best for each individual person. I saw it on Dr.Phil. This way your not a medication guinea pig.

A MyDepressionTeam Member said:

Yes. I had it done. They suggested Pristiq which worked well for 5 years and vyanase I believe. I am going off pristiqu as it elevates liver enzymes, can cause glaucoma, etc
