How do you get out of your routine?


I feel like I'm doing the same thing everyday . It's really depressing me that my depression controls my whole day . It consumes me , holds me down and keeps me from doing anything . my husband and others think it's being lazy . But it's so much more than that. It takes all my energy to get out of bed. That small act itself seems huge , and then My body goes to the couch and then the invisible weights come on and it's like I'm chained to the couch and I can't seem to get up . Most days I don't want to do anything at all . Just me having to care for my child who is one and a half is exhausting ... I love him and try so hard but I feeL most days barely able to care for myself let alone my son. And it's super over weleming . I just want to be able to do normal things - wake up , drink

Coffee, and get things done around the house , play outside with my son etc... How can I try to be normal?

Hello Jade Raye,

Take small steps...the first is going to be difficult. But each step will bring you closer to your goal. At my age, it's getting hard yet we always feel better when we MOVE. Trust me. Be aware of your son. He will motivate you to keep trying.

Life moves fast. Hope you make tomorrow count. I really want to follow you and your daily progress. Eager to hear a good report !!!
