  1. I guess I'm not the only one. I'm sorry to hear that others are struggling with this too. I try to live a somewhat healthy life, eating well, sleeping just enough, and getting a little exercise, but cleaning is just something I can't motivate myself to do unless it just becomes unbearable. I'll have to give some of these suggestions a try though.
  2. It seems like I can never keep up with these things. I try to do a little every day, but it's never enough or I just run out of energy before I can even get to them. It's hard enough just taking care of myself, let alone another person, a pet, and the whole house. I wish I could figure out how to make it easier, but I haven't got a clue. There's always so much that needs cleaning. It makes my depression worse that I can't keep up. Even my yard and the exterior of the house looks bad, but the thought of actually putting on clothes and going outside makes it unbearable. I'm so embarrassed, because my neighbors all have beautiful yards and homes. I wish there was a way to "get over it".
  3. I feel overwhelmed and worn out. I wish things were easier, but everything feels like an uphill struggle most of the time.
  4. Your username reminds me of the song Sweater Weather by The Neighbourhood I've never heard of that song, but I hope that's a good thing! :)
  5. I got some grocery shopping done, which was hard considering I walk to the store and back and it was in the 90's today. I got a shower when I got home and put a load of laundry in the washer. I'll dry it before bed, but will probably leave the folding until tomorrow. I'm trying to get more exercise into my day, so besides the walk to the store, I did some stretching for about 30 minutes. I don't really even know what I hope to gain from stretching, but it's a start at least.
  6. Despite how bad I've felt all day, I got a lot more done than I thought I would. I got my usual shower and then made some lentil curry to tide me over for a few days. Crockpots are a godsend! I also got some laundry put away and plan on finishing the rest tomorrow after I run some errands.
  7. I guess it depends on how low I'm feeling. If I'm feeling depressed but can still do things if I push myself enough, I'll make or buy some comfort food and watch a movie/TV show/anime on my laptop. Browsing the internet helps most of the time too. I always take a shower, regardless of how bad I feel, but on those really hard days, I break out the really nice smelling shampoo, body wash, and lotion. Sometimes, it perks me up slightly. If I'm having one of those days where I can't even get out of bed, not much helps me. I just stay in bed and sleep or watch something. Unfortunately, when I'm that depressed, not much can distract me from how bad I feel. I don't even have an appetite, so comfort food is out of the question on those days.
  8. Today was a busy day, but I feel like sometimes being busy keeps me from being too depressed. I took a short 15 minute walk to the grocery store and back, which seemed to lighten my mood a little. I took a shower when I got home and cooked a quick dinner for myself, with enough leftovers to last me a few days. I also put fresh sheets on my bed, hoping it would help me sleep a little better tonight.
  9. Restless, antsy, overwhelmed, and anxious. I've been feeling this way all day.
  10. My biggest one is contamination. I'm a hand washer, obsess about feeling clean and things being clean/germ-free, etc. It's pretty annoying when you just want to do something simple like cook a meal but it takes twice as long because you have to stop to wash your hands 20 times. I'm also a checker, obsessive worrier, have some rituals, and have magical thinking involving certain numbers and words.
  11. I've felt very depressed since late last night. I don't feel like doing much of anything, aside from lying in bed and watching something. I hope tomorrow is better.
  12. You should definitely avoid him at all costs. Normal people don't act that way. I'd also suggest keeping record of any further interactions - via phone or in real life - that you have with him, just in case you ever have to involve the police. Hopefully it never comes to that, but if it does, you'll be prepared and will have thorough evidence against him.
  13. I went to the pet store to pick up some medication and dog food. That was pretty difficult, because all I've wanted to do all day is wrap up in some heavy blankets and lie in bed, watching TV or reading. Dealing with people was hard today. I've also been busy taking care of my mother and making sure she's comfortable. She came home from the hospital yesterday, but is still sick and needing me a lot. I'm feeling really worn out because of that.
  14. Frustrated and anxious. I haven't been able to relax all day.
