It Seems Like I'm Always Alone.

I notice that when I do get out of the house and actually do something and socialize (Even if it's just with one friend) I feel somewhat better. It is at least a distraction from the negative thoughts that usually swirl around my head. I guess I'm just venting.

And I know what you mean about motivation. There are a couple of beautifull walking trails within a 5-10 minute drive of my house, which I've walked on before a few times. And I know excercise is another thing that would be good for me, but I just can't get up and do it.

I have a very hard time doing this myself but I ALWAYS make it to my therapy or psychiatrist appointments. Those meetings have an advantage of containing numerous things that are attractive: First is the internal feeling that they may understand the possible way to fix ourselves and end the pain. Second is that it actually is a social interaction with someone who can at least sympathize. Third, is that we've paid for it and will waste the money if we don't go.
One thing that has been close to that for me has been guided meditation sessions. Depending on where you are, there might be ones that meed multiple times per week and take donations at the end. I've been donating exactly $2 each time because I'm so financially unstable at the moment.
But if you know you can get up for the therapy appointments, you know it is possible for you to get up and out to do something.

Maybe I can force myself to get up and take a walk before my appointment tommorrow. I don't know.
