I just don't want to do ANYTHING! I see dishes in the sink and I turn away. I don't cook anymore (thanks to my loving husband) and think taking the dishes out of the dishwasher is a major chore. Is this something anyone else has felt?
Does anyone else feel this way? - Anxiety and Depre...
He retired 10 years before me so we got in a GREAT routine-I worked, he took care of meals. I know I should help, but I feel so tired all I want to do is lie around and read or ruminate. This SUCKS!
I know I'm not alone and am glad/sorry others are going through this. I gotta put my head down and get stuff done. Thanks for your reply!
Feeling guilty is second nature to me. Have been that way for a long time. Also trying to deal with my mom's stuff (she's in a nursing home) as well as our own. Wish I had my strength back. Thanks for responding to me.
Yes, mine seems to be 24/7. Thanks for listening and commiserating (hope I spelled it right).
Lol yep plenty of people feel this way. When I see dishes I turn away not because I’m lazy, but I’m just mentally and emotionally exhausted from my mental illnesses. I still do take out the trash, do my laundry, wash dishes, and even cook but that’s on a very rare day:/ I’m simply beat and too depressed.
I know I feel lazy just sitting here, but it's the best I can do right now.
Yeah. Unless you enjoy loading and unloading a dishwasher I think it is completely normal. Why?
I know part of my depression is due to not having a purpose since I've retired. Just doing housework is not fun, but I don't know what else to do. People have given me ideas, but none of them appeal to me. Just showering and eating is a chore. Thank goodness for this site as I know others feel the same way.
