So I’m male, 62, retired due to depression 3 years ago, lacking in enthusiasm and energy, but not stuck in my bed. I just can’t get going in the morning. Feel more enthusiastic at night but can’t get going. Taking 60mg of fluoxitine (which is the max I’m told) and some vitamins got my diet going well, but totally lack enthusiasm. Still see the Shrink, but I don’t have a clear pathway ahead, it’s just for a blether. He doesn’t think I should take myself on as a project! Friends and very understanding family give advice but I can’t, can’t go with it and move forward. Maybe it’s just me. Oh I also pee a lot in small quantities. It’s just old age? of course!
Got thyroid checked by Dr and he said it was within parameters etc etc etc blah blah. So, got two tests from Medical Company last year. Eventually summoned up courage to show the paperwork to the Doc, guess what? Yup! Didn’t even read the Doctors comments provided.
