cant move

how much can i stay in bed, i feel like my brain has been wiped clean. nothing, no happy thought, no joy, nothing to look forward to. i feel very weak, i got up a few times to drink water, i put music on while i am laying in bed. its 3 weeks since my new dr took me off prosac added lithium and raised effexor to 375 from 400. after i called him today and told him how low i feel, he said to increase effexor to 450. i am just staring at the ceiling, with no purpose to get up

Try and just go walk for 5min or longer. You need get ur self out more or you will end up getting more weak , I was the same as you till I just made my self go to shop , it got me out for little while, u got to try or you will end up making your self more tried by doing nothing , I know it weird but more you do , the more your body won't try shit down , it takes time to get ur self out , I still have days where I want to hide in my bed , just keep pushing ur self as much as u can. U not alone 🤗


Glad to here you've got your music. Even though I know listening to something positive will help, I don't most times. It helps me to talk to a "higher power" to help me move. It may help to visualize yourself walking to complete a small task and even mimicking the motions. You are worthy and cared about.
