I have genetically passed down severe depression and anxiety. Although, I am a generally upbeat and happy person on the outside. I have a few friends and a great family. No serious health risks or illnesses. I should be extremely grateful to have the life I have, but at the end of the day I feel a huge dark cloud come over me. I can sink into a deep deep sadness and over think everything that went wrong throughout the day. I also have add. This makes it hard to plan my day or even have any kind of routine. I wish I had the motivation to exercise and eat right but I just don't see the point. I read that is supposed to help with my problems but I just can't get out and do it. Instead I sit in my apartment and stress out over stupid stuff. I just need to find the motivation, however, life seems so up and down for me that it doesn't seem worth it to even try. I truly care for other people but when it comes to myself i couldnt care any less. I know I sound pathetic to you and I'm sorry. I just need any kind of advice to be able to get out of my head. So in conclusion, is it normal to be so depressed but not be able to get off my ass and do anything about it? Any help would be truly heard. Please don't be mean, I am a very sensitive person.
