Im on a lot of medication but i still get stuck in the depressive/anxious loop sometimes. Lately I've been so anxious generally that i just cant get out of bed. the thought of getting up just scares me ****less. so i sleep till noon or 1 every day. when i get up im depressed because i wasted so much time. i dont know what to do!! :hide

I wouldn't say being anxious and depressed to the point of not wanting to get out of bed is normal :) If you are on meds and they aren't doing the job it is time to have them adjusted..

I used to stay in bed all the time. Now I got a nest-like chair and stay in that instead :)

Im the king of this,and not suprisingly...im unemployed and isolated from anyone or thing outside of my house.. I do the same thing and sleep into the afternoon,wake up, and feel depressed about getting up. I get sick of thinking about being depressed and having no reason to get out of bed...so eventually the only way to stop your brain's self-talk is go back to sleep. Ill have times where im just in bed sleeping or trying to fall asleep for 1 1/2- 2 1/2 days straight. When im hungry enough that its keeping me awake,i eat. Since im up to eat,ill take a shower. Sometimes after that point i feel slightly better and get up, sometimes i feel the same and go from the shower back to the bed. It sucks and i dont recommend sleeping as an escape from reality or your thoughts. 2005 is almost over, and i missed it.
