Weekend Blues

Funny how some people have the Monday blues... for me it seems weekends are just as hard. When I wake up, I feel blue, like I have nothing to look forward to even though I may have plans. This weekend I felt like I didn't want to stay in bed yet I also didn't want to do anything else but I did. Does anyone experience this? It's like I don't know what I want. The mornings are just tough and I want this to change. Thanks everyone💓

Yes I do,its like there's no getup and go feeling?for me I'm in pain every morning and I feel like rubbish however once I've had my pain relief I feel somewhat better,however,years ago without pain in mornings I still had that feeling so I went to doctors and they gave me citalopram which gave me a little boost and I found myself not only wanting to do things but actually doing them.are you on any antidepressants?

Thanks for your reply curlybacks. I'm so sorry that you experience pain but glad to know that you can get relief from it. Okay, so you started Celexa, really great it helps you. I'm not on any medications and it is a last resort for me so I am trying everything else under the sun, meditation, self-help books and videos, acupuncture, etc. I just really worry about side effects of medication. But if I am getting worse and can't function, I will definitely take meds. Also, my depressive symptoms are really related to a loss/death of a loved one so sometimes I wonder if this is part of the grief/bereavement process and not clinical depression. I do see a therapist every week and that's been helpful.

I went through all natural remedies and self helps first to,so it was last resort for me I was suffering two losses at the time and was struggling to cope.it is part of the process yes,I'm no longer on citalopram,they helped me when needed help the most.I wish you the very best of luck,loss is such a long process things seem like thier improving then some little thing just makes you think and it gets you.

I'm so sorry about the two losses that you endured. We both know how devastating it can be. May I ask how long you were on the Celexa? And did you have any negative side effects? Yes, some days I do really well and then other days not so good. I think I had an exceptional day about 3 days ago and felt great, like my old self again. So maybe that's a good sign that I am making some improvement. Thank you again for chiming in!

Two&half years I believe it was,side effects possibly gritting teeth when asleep but then that could've been what I did through stress ,but I'm sure others noticed this same thing. I'm pleased for your day for you,they become so less often we forget what it feels like feeling great lol

I feel this way too. On weekends I feel like I should be going out or getting stuff done, but I freeze up with anxiety. I always say next weekend I’ll do something and then I never do. I just lay around all day. You’re definitely not alone. Maybe we can try going out one time to a store and feel we did something. Gotta start small. I’m sorry 😕

You definitely understand. Seems like your anxiety keeps you from going out . For me, it's mostly the little mood and lack of motivation. I do make sure I get out so the depressive symptoms don't feed themselves and I do feel better afterwards. But the mornings I'm back at the same feelings. Why don't you try going out today and let us know how it goes? Fresh air can do a world of good. We're here for you, too!

That’s awesome you push yourself to go out. Morning anxiety is rough. I’ll try and get out today ☺️

Maria, just wanted to say that yes, morning anxiety is painful!

I feel that way to. Especially on a Friday night when I'm wrapped up in my blanket at 8 o'clock in my bed watching netflixs thinking of the people who are out having fun like in my younger days. (Not saying I'm old now ha) Then I think about if I were out somewhere I would probably be wishing I was home in my blanket in bed watching netflixs. (Crowds people make me uncomfortable) I guess at times i wish i was with 1 person out to dinner or on a couch watching TV or a movie and not alone.

I hope things get better for you and you don't have them weekend blues. Hugs

Hi Michael, you hit the nail on the head. Being home alone isn't always the greatest but then being out with others also isn't satisfying. It's can be a confusing place to be. Do you have a friend that you could just hang out and chill with? I did that last night and it was good. Thanks for the well wishes and same to you🤗

I'm glad you were able to do that and chill. It's good to be able to do that. I don't have any one around where I am for that to happen. And I'm not really good at making friends either. One day it'll happen. Hugs!

I like your optimism 👍 Well you certainly have us as friends here! Enjoy the rest of your day 🤗

Yes. I am very grateful for everyone here. An amazing support we are for one another.
