Why don’t I have energy

I don’t even want to eat. I have so much to do. My poor children and husband suffer while I can’t help feeling sorry for myself. I want to be normal. When will that happen? Why can’t I find the right medicine or treatment? I’m alienating everyone

What kind of shakes are they?

One is called Ensure. They're usually by the vitamins.

I would love to have children and a spouse to be around. I would love them.

I think normal is ever changing, even though slightly sometimes. Hope you find the right combination for your life and happiness. I'd like to be content and family and friends around. Hope for the best!

I would say you need to talk to your Dr. sounds like depression to me, why suffer there is some good medicine out there. Do not let your husband and children suffer because of you suffering. Go get help, be strong, I send love & hugs.. Sprinkle 1

Thank you. I am on Lexapro 10 mg for a couple of weeks. Maybe I should increase it?

Maybe. Check with your doctor first, though.

I'm not saying this is the right thing to do but I notice I'm way more depressed when I'm exhausted or even tired. It's usually super frustrating because during the day I'm exhausted depressed and at night I'm wide awake anxious. I've tried everything and I have to say that having a 5 hour energy shot in the morning totally gets me going and usually out of my depressive funk .
