I wonder if others could tell me how their motive power is after a manifestation of their symptoms?
I am currently struggling very much with drive to do hardly anything at all. I have a busy life normally, running a business, supporting my wife and children and so on. I also take part in volunteer work and have a multitude of hobbies.
However, after pushing myself recently I’ve nosedived once again. For the last week or two I’ve had as much get-up-and-go as a sloth on a slow day. I can’t be bothered. It’s taken me all day just to finally sit down and type a few lines here. In the past I get better but it can take weeks and weeks. My wife misses the enthusiastic and lively me. As a matter of fact, so do I!
I wonder if there is anything I can do to help myself? When I feel this way I can’t be bothered with anything. I become a rather boring person. I don’t have opinions on anything, I just don’t care. I’ve felt like this before, each time following a relapse. This time I thought I’d share my depressed state!
