Do you ever feel like you just can't handle anymore?

There are some days I just want to crawl back in bed and go back to sleep for another 8 or 24 hours, or a week. Lately I just don't seem to have the energy anymore, I don't want to cook the meals. I don't feel like playing with the dog. I just want to curl up on the bed with a book and run away. Depression is something I have lived with all my life. I am in ongoing treatment. It's strange that no matter what I know should be happening to me, or no matter how much I am sure I know I can handle it, there just comes a time occasionally when I cannot do what I need to. My doctor just changed my medication so I should be feeling better in a couple days. I'm just impatient to feel better. It doesn't do any good to keep busy or go outside in the sun, because the depression is from the inside, but it's hard for people who don't know depression to understand that. One cannot just snap out of it or put on a happy face. If only it were that easy... This too shall pass. It always does. It's just waiting for it that is difficult.

Usually when I get in that mood the best thing for me to do is find something that I really like to do and spend some time doing it. Before I know it...I'm in a better mood. AT PEACE WITHIN ~~STAND STRONG IN YOUR BELIEFS~~

Yep--- I feel like this alot- Like right now I should be cleaning and getting ready for the b-day party here tomorrow- My daughters- But I can't get the energy- I sat in teh chair and read for a while- I watched tv for a bit- I've been on the computer- but I just can't find the energy or want to clean and get things done! I'm thinking of hitting the sack for a nap and it's only 9:44 am
