  1. My life consists of waking up, turning on my tv and watching YouTube all day. I eat if I can manage to get off the couch. I never really leave the house. I don’t work, have an income or run any errands, my girlfriend does. The rare time I do leave it’s for something essential like food. I’ve gained 50 pounds over the last 6 months from doing nothing. I jump when my phone (rarely) rings or makes a noise. Everything makes me nervous and gives me anxiety. I try to get out when I can. I get lost in the days as everyday feels the same. I’ve been stuck in the same rut for over a year now. Doing the same thin everyday just to wake up the next day to repeat the same things, being worthless. Anyone else stuck in something similar? Feeling completely non self sufficient, worthless and lay in bed or on the couch all day just to do the same thing the next day?
  2. 8 months that you haven’t worked? rachel- yes due to anxiety.
  3. I’m not working due to the anxiety/depression. Spending all of my savings on daily expenses.
  4. I don’t really go outside. I don’t work so I don’t even really leave the house. I try to get out sometimes for a few minutes just to get out but then I start to get anxiety so I go back inside. But then I get anxious inside because know I’m couped up. Half the days I don’t even get dressed, I just lay on the couch and watch tv and YouTube all day until my gf comes home from work to see she’s just disappointed once again. Wake up at 2 in the afternoon. Then repeat the next day. Anyone else? Been going on for about a year now.
  5. Does anyone else find that everyone in there family has a different opinion? I’m the focus of my family because of my problem. I live on my grandmothers property in her in law suite, my dad lives in the main house. To sum up what I’m talking about, everyone has there “answer” to get me to get out of bed and try to get a job or get “fixed” Grandmother- always tries to send me inpatient (I’ve been twice) or kick me out for not doing anything with my life Father- doesn’t understand why I just can’t grt out of bed and work. Therapy and meds are wack. Negative outlook Aunt- stirs the family up all the time about my depression Girlfriend- understands to an extent It’s like I’m always trying to keep my family “at bay” with my disease. And they make my anxiety worse a lot. Anyone else??
  6. Has anyone noticed a difference between the two? I have been going to a hospital ran psychatritry ran place for almost a year now and have not really been getting better. I know that is the correct way to do it, but it seems they are extremely strict on the medication, barely perscribing anything that could posibaly help. I am not sure if it is because of regulations that are put on them or a higher up watchful eye or what but my experence is that private ran places seem to try different type things. Anyone else have an opinion? The reason I am asking if becasue I am thikning of finding a new pdoc as I dont even leave the house barely now.
  7. Yeah real tough. I can get up and do something but after I’m done say at 11am, I just want to jump right back in bed. It’s hard to stay out if that makes sense. I just want to go back to my safe place I guess.
  8. I’m on meds. Seems like I have to push myself a little harder which I’m sure everyone knows isn’t easy. This sucks. It’s nice to know people here understand though.
  9. Hello all. It seems like every 3-4 years when my OCD and depression get really bad I fall off the wagon with work and general day to day tasks into a cycle that only leads downhill..was just looking to see if anyone has been in the same boat and what you do. The cycle is something like..Don't work do to OCD, mental illness so I have no money > Don't leave the house even though it benefits my mental health becasue I don't have money to buy things or do (only so many free things to do) > Go to bed at 4am wake up in afternoon 3-5pm becasue there is nothing to fill my day with > depressed that I sleep until 5pm ut have anxiety about what to do with my entire day if I get up any eariler > Try to find a job but then get horrendious anxiety about having to mange "Real life" with a job >Go to bed and repeat the next day. I'm sure there are things I missed, but that is A general overview. Anyone else in the same boat and have any advice? Thanks.
