I feel totally flat and depleted of energy all the time. As hard as I try, I just can't get myself to feel excited about anything in my life. I feel isolated and very lonely and don't feel like I can trust anyone with the way I feel. I don't go out or have any family close by so I spend all my time in the house. It's as if I'm in a fog and just can't shake it. I did see a doctor a while back and he didn't want to listen to what I had to say, he just wanted to put me on anti depressents which I didn't really want to do.

I used to feel like that. You just have to keep reminding yourself that you have to do this, you have to do that. And when you feel like theres nothing to be excited about, go out and do something. Just going to the shops to get food will help take you out of this rut, it clears your mind a little, and changes your routine. You feel lonely? Im in the exact situation right now. Im trying to be a bit more happy and make my self look forward to things more. So what im trying to say is change your routine, do something unexpected and give your self a little reward after doing things like a piece of chocolate Razz Hope this helped. Feel better Smile
