Hi. So my anxiety has been fine these days and was able to lower it to 25mg zoloft and have been on that dose for 5 months but I am encountering a new problem that I've been kind of having for quite some time now. I've been feeling hopeless and I feel as if my life is pointless. Nothing really entertains me. I do have a very caring girlfriend and family(mother is divorced though) and I am currently working as a seasonal gardener, which was one of the things I always wanted to do in my career; to work outside with nature and maintain beautiful flower gardens. I also have future plans after this seasonal gardening job, which is to go back to school to earn a degree/certificate in horticulture. Everything sounds good in my life so far right? Well, for some reason I'm just not enjoying life. I don't enjoy work as much as I thought I would and the weekends feel extra short that I feel like I didn't get to spend enough time with my girlfriend. I just feel as if everything I'm doing is pointless and won't go anywhere with it. I don't understand why I'm feeling like this, I feel very nihilistic. Is this depression? Or some other mental illness that I have?
