Hey all. I'm 25, and living in San Diego. I am currently active duty in the navy, have been for the past 6 years. Over the last year, it's been getting harder and harder for me to care about anything. I have a beautiful wife and an equally beautiful little girl at home. I hate my job, but it pays the bills, i just feel empty inside. i really don't know what else to write in here. My day to day life is full of things hanging over my head and tons of stress. I thought i'd gotten over most of it a few years ago but i guess not. I'm sad most of the time and i feel tired a lot.
I know this isn't a lot to go off of, and i know if i get my act together i would be fine, but its so hard to get started...
I'm sorry you're feeling the way you're feeling. I also feel very empty, tired, lazy, and sad.
What's so hard for me is finding the motivation to do the things that I know will make my life better. Its hard for me to even make a phone call or shower. Its incredibly debilitating.
What I can say is that its important to get help. I had the same issues a couple of years ago and I decided to go on lexapro. It's a medication that was for anxiety and depression. It really helped me get out of the fog and get some positive perspective to make my life better.
I'm thinking of going on it again since I am feeling very hopeless. it didn't change my personality. Just my perspective... giving me more hope for the future.
I hope you're doing better. Best... Thank you for protecting our country.
