Just Don't Care?!

Lately, I have been having trouble caring about anything in my life. I would say that I am depressed, but I am not sad. I am just feel drained. I have no interest in spending time with my friends, I don't care about my schoolwork anymore (which used to be gratifying work), and my work is the last thing on my mind. If I could just stay in the house and hide away from the rest of the world. I would. Is anyone else going through this drought of happiness.

If you only had one of the syptoms you have listed I would think it was just a case of the blues, but, I think since you are experiencing more than one symptom though you may have a mild case of depression. if it's affecting you to the point where you don't want to leave the house then i'd say it wouldn't hurt talking to a counselor or just going over these symptoms with your pcp. i have felt like this in the past and it got to where when someone suggested talking to someone about how i felt i went through a million reasons in my mind why i didn't want to do it (primarily to avoid having to go somewhere when even a normal day was exahusting me) and this was the point when i realized it was a definite problem. if you have felt this way for more than 3-4 weeks i would definitely at least make an appt with your dr. to discuss it and let the expert decide whether you need additional treatment or not. remember: you don't have to do anything the dr. suggests but it wouldn't hurt to get his or her opinion. goood luck

Thanks for your input! However, I have been down that road before. When I was about nineteen I had depression. I am just in one of life's lost stages. I'm sure I will find my way. I just can't seem to figure it out. I don't know what I want to do with myself. I study IT, and I work. But I am just bored with it. What am I doing for the world?

I'm borderline. I'm a lightworker.. so when I get down, I don't typically stay there for long, although my needs and wants may change, as may the world around me.

Sometimes i am also have the same feeling with you. I care about everythings happen surround me. But now, i realize that i would not be able to solve or help all of the problem. So, yeah, i will just "pretend" not care about things that are not really important to me. Although it is difficult, i havew to try

I used to have such an interest in helping people....but, I don't know. I feel like I am getting old or something. I don't have faith in people anymore.

Well sounds like a co-incidence....I too going through same phase. I don't like anything and I feel like I want to change my world. The things that interests me now seems boring.....Buddy the best thing in my view is to stay positive because sooner or later everything will be fine.

I realize that I have nothing to be upset about! Many people have more problems then I do. I am just lost in life right now. I am sure I will find my way. Thank you!

I go through phases like that. It's not that I truely feel sad at this moment, but that everything just seems pointless, it's like a deeper sadness taht has not yet surfaced. I don't think I'm really depressed though, I've been convinced for a long while that I have Dual Personality Disorder, or something of that sort. I've never had it checked out though, I'm too scared to tell anyone that I think I should get checked out by a professional.
