I have been dealing with high functioning depression for a while now. I have been in this slump and I cant seem to get myself out of it. My days consist of work and sleeping. Im trying to pull myself out of it but I just cant at the current moment. I think its because Im feeling so empty and unfulfilled. A couple of years ago I had my entire life planned out and now I have no clue what to do with myself on a daily basis. Usually, going to the gym helps out but I cant bring myself to go to the gym. Im in this weird depressive state where I dont have the desire to do anything that will more than likely help me feel better.
What I wish I was doing instead of having to get up to be a productive person:
I am so fed up with feeling like this. Its a day to day struggle with no end in sight. Ive hit this type of low twice in my life. The first time I dropped out of high school for about two months and just wandered around aimlessly. The second time I quit my job and stayed holed up in my apartment for two months. I desperately need some time off, I was considering taking a leave but I have bills to pay you know? With all the craziness going on in the world mental health days should really be added as a benefit. Even though I want to, I really can’t afford to just drop out of life at this current moment.
Hopefully, I feel better soon.
