Lily, I'm glad you showered, but sorry you didn't feel motivated due to the meds you are taking.

I know a lot of people here on the board are looking for drug solutions, although I think that, in my case at least, drugs are not going to do much to help me.

I do use a bit of diazepam, 5 mg tablets which I usually break in half, taking a half, then another half an hour or more later.

Often times the diazepam makes me feel motivated and I work on many chores and projects which I would otherwise feel too depressed to do.

Other times the diazepam puts me to sleep, but I wake up feeling very motivated and energized to get to work.

But, occasionally, I do wake up after going to sleep from diazepam, and don't feel very good.

I've found that with all kinds of drugs, that the effects can often be contradictory.

From your post, I have no idea what kind of meds you are taking, and how or why they might make you feel unmotivated to do things.

Most of the meds I take are for my blood pressure and cholesterol, and more recently, a potassium supplement because of a deficiency of that chemical in my bloodstream, due to the blood pressure drugs.

I'm probably on 7 or 8 drugs now, only one being a minor tranquuilizer, and the rest related to my blood pressure and other accompanying conditions.

I think it's better not to take any drugs of any kind, but when you have certain diseases, it is a must to extend your life span and hopefully accomplish something with your life.

I'm wishing you well and hope that you can find some motivation to accomplish some good things in your own life.

Thank you so much! EFA's from Omega fish oil helps with cholesterol. it gives you/increases the good cholesterol and lowers the bad cholesterol. You can get it from a Health store. One of my uncles took it and his cholesterol went "down"! Then his wife which is my Aunt who didn't believe in it and didn't take them who was put on cholesterol medication then believed and started taking the Omega fish oil and now I don't know what happened bc they're in another country. If you buy it, get one in a small, dark container as it's hard to finish just one by the due date and so it stays fresh and EFA's are heat and light-sensitive so it must be put in the refrigerator too. Also always look at the ingredients label to choose the best one/brand. Good luck with your health!
