I feel totally weak at times, today is such a time.
I mean I am not really weak, I just feel so weak like iron was in my body instead of blood.I am surprised I am still able to walk without collapsing.
I think it is all mental and not physical. I am also like who cares and it seems all life within me has gone. I wonder if other people too suffer from occasional weakness. Maybe it's depression. Because I can't get some thoughts out of my head. I always feel like nobody cares and everyone rejects me and that I'll never find a place where I am respected, I feel like everything is just a fight and it goes on my whole life. And I try to think of people I ve met that were nice but it seems without any value, it just doesn't make any difference. I just feel down and out and I am so exhausted I can't do anything. And when I think of what I could do it gets me down even more because I can't help but feel nobody values it and I can't do anything for me cause nothing feels good and it seems everything is so totally difficult.

Don't even know why I m putting it all down, just wonder if anybody too feels so weak sometimes.

Dear I,
I believe you're talking depression and I know it well. I have been through some days, some weeks, sometimes months, and one year of depression where I have felt all of these things. I feel like I weigh about 800 pounds and have NO motivation.

I can sleep for 14 hours and STILL be tired. I can't stop crying. I have very negative thoughts. And I have thought of suicide, planned it. But the interesting thing... when I'm NOT depressed I wonder, "What the HELL was I thinking?" "Why was I in that hole?"

My very first diagnosis when I was 15 was depression and DP/DR, but I was also extremely anxious.

My current diagnosis is GAD which includes depression, and DP/DR.

For me, meds and therapy have helped a great deal. It's important to seek help and remember this will pass. If it doesn't pass, you may need an antidepressant of some type, and you have to experiment.

Also, my chronic DP/DR sometimes just drags me down into a huge pit. And when I isolate myself, the depression feeds on that.

It's good to seek out company of other people. Distraction again, as well as a sense of normality. Close friends, or a small group of fun people for some low key talk or hanging out. A support group -- very helpful.

Hang in there,
I've been there off and on for most of my life.
I always manage to pull out of my misery.
But it takes effort.
Best,
D :shock:

Yeah maybe it's depression but terming it doesn't make it go away, but thanks for the reply Dreamer and pdr.

I know it will pass but it seems to me that the weakness and feelings of inferiority is the basement of my life and when I have moments of more strength it now seems that I just sometimes manage to get away from it but in the end it just leads down to the weakness anyway.
Being around people would definitely help but I am too lazy to do anything for it.

I do have anxiety and dr/dp, but not today, it just seems that the state I am in now is the same, but I am just too down to experience anxiety so I drown in this depressive state; don't know wether that makes sense or not, can't concentrate anyway, the depression is just both the dr and the anxiety without energy it seems.

No energy to get away from the basement of indifference, kind of an endless nagging without words or enough drive to act on it. And I don't even want to nag, I am just like whatever there is, who cares.
