I am new to this group but found it on the internet tonight and thought I would give it a try. I am a single mom with two children. I have been dealing with depression and anxiety for over five years now but lately it has gotten worse. I only work two days a week at the moment and the rest of the time I am at home. It is hard to do anything. I don't want to clean house, I don't want to do grocery shopping, I don't want to do anything but sit on my couch and watch tv. I say I don't want to which is not correct, I want to do all of those things but can't seem to get the energy or the motivation who so. I want to be active again and happy and energetic but am at a lost as to how to get that all back again. I am failing at my job of being a good mother in my opinion because the day to day activities are so hard to motivate myself to do. I am in pain constantly and I know it's because of the depression and the lack of exercise and lack of eating right I just wish I could figure out how to get my life back.
