In 2002, during a period of 6 months I suddenly felt very tired. Tired to do anything. Even walk till the grossery shop. I never thought that it could have something to do with the mind. Depression is the only possible source for this?
definetly depressed, right now i am trying to exersize and see a psychologist for the depression. kinda scared of meds but they may be a part of my life in the near future. any med suggestions other than paxil. hows welbutrin?
Foggy. Next time you feel fatigued, or zombie like, or like another synapse will not occur, or so lethargic you hardly feel alive, go take a cold shower or run around the block or get involved in a rousing arguement with someone. What I find is that for the most part this fatigue is not true fatigue but rather a symptom that seems like fatigue. So often I feel listess as well as tired and this does not make sense. Maybe mental fatigue can cause body fatigue, but in our case ( mine anyway) I can trick back my mental fatigue by pumping blood to my brain. I can be energized in a moment, which tells me it is not true fatigue. Anxiety thoughts indeed wear us out, but these dp/dr symptoms seem to be real fakers.
foggy, i take welbutrin. im not a med advocate by any means, but it has helped with depression. not in a very noticable way, it was subtle and my mood improved over time. its helped to stabalize me but it doesnt make me feel too high. i havent experienced any annoying side effects either. there is one downer though, its not easy to get off of. i have tried tapering off of it and every time my depression comes back 10 fold.. so i have to go right back up to my full dosage.
