i sit in n do nothing, im 26, i do not have a degree n i notice most people on here seem very creative n intelligent but im just bla bla boring n no interests or knowledge of anything, im sooooooo depressed but now people are gettin fed up cause i have a daughter so i should snap out of it, i just wanna die. i dont even want to wash. the only thing that gives me a bit of energy to get dressed is every couple of weeks if i go to buy sleeping tablets for a few nights, cause i do count down the hours till i can go asleep at night, but sometimes then i cant sleep. i really thought by this age id be over all this but the years are passing and im just getting older and worse

You're not going to get better if you do nothing. You have a daughter, that's great. Focus on being a good parent to her. And you need to see a psychologist for depression and SA. It doesn't disappear with time unless you're actively treating it.

Do you have a job? What do you want to be doing? Even with a child it's possible to get a degree if that's what you really want.

Many times I have sat and done nothing as well. I am not motivated and I literally have to force myself to go do something. Once I get started, keeping the momentum is usually not that hard. If I come inside for any reason, I resort right back to doing nothing again.

I have health issues now and it makes it many times harder to force myself to get started. I do have hobbies, my favorite one photography. If I can get into the vehicle and leave, I am usually alright as long as I stay out of the motels.

It is difficult, but you have to keep telling yourself that you need to get out. Going for a long walk helps too, it is good exercise and believe it or not, will put you in a better state of mind. I believe that exercise is the key to motivation.

I am 48, and I can say that seeing a psychologist probably will only make you feel worse. What probably will make you feel better is pushing forward and getting that degree and/or job. As soon as useful activity stops a feeling of despair starts to settle in. By encouraging introspection, a clinical psychologist will only increase your pensiveness.

its so strange, i feel like a depressed n lazy 16 yr old except im 26.. i really thought as i got older i would grow up but i didnt. if im 100% away from the toxic relationship and drugs, then i begin to get a little motivation but then i go running back to all that. i feel regret for waisting my youth, but im still doing it, i used to be good looking, good job, now my front teeth have been knocked out by the father of my child so they are fake, i look older than i am with dark circles under my eyes, and i have health issues. but yet im still in a rut. i dont know what i expect people to say, but its good to talk

No matter what happened to you .. i am sure you are an interesting person. You might look at yr self and think .. oh boy i am not so good.. but other people would be interested in you all the same.. i am sure if i met you we will haev a great conversation. Just go sit in the park every now and then and talk to people.

Also there is nothing called '' snap out of it''

Hugs:)
