I am really wondering how others cope with morning depression. Most mornings I can't move burying my head under the covers until early afternoon when it starts to lift. Let's face the fact, meds help tremendously as well as Therapy, however, we need to try out our coping skills as well to see what works. I am completely unmotivated..I just want to be shut off from the world. I have my dogs by my side, I do my morning routine fast, which is my anxiety in getting laundry started, dogs fed, dishes washed, only to jump under the covers on the couch and bury my head. I am feeling better with my meds being changed and increased to 60 mg Cymbalta and Klonopin 3x daily. Spoke to my Nurse Practitioner yesterday via Telehealth. My morning depression has lifted some days and other days it's cutting myself off from the world.
Anyone relate to morning depression and what do you do to help motivate yourself?
