Life Sucks

It's a bad day. I haven't spent much time out of bed because I feel so low. There just doesn't seem to be any point in doing anything. I really ought to have gone out today to get some money and a few essential food items, but it was just too cold. I will have to go out tomorrow no matter how I feel otherwise I won't have anything to eat.

At the moment, life really sucks.

I'm sorry it's like this again.I wish i had some helpful advice. I know well those feelings of lethargy and paralysis that come with depression. I know how hard it is to motivate oneself and find any point in doing anything at all.
I do find going for a walk helps,prefferably somewhere calm and remote, which is difficult to find in the midst of a city (we're lucky here with the peak districk being just 15 minutes drive away).
Sometimes I have to force myself to do something, set myself a simple task and try and complete it. Nothing too creative since that way frustration and defeatism lie. Something distracting or soporific, like sorting through old photos or cleaning my painting equipment ready for another (better) day.
There's also nothing worse than someone else telling you what you should do and to get on with it - so I'll shush now before I sound patronising or sanctimonious!
I really hope you find a way out of this, and soon.
Take care.

Hope things get better soon. I can really empathise with your descriptions of these bad days (having spent 16 hours out of 2 yesterday in bed myself without even the... energy? willpower? It's neither of those, exactly.. to try and argue with the miseries, just sunk in them. People can tell me what to do and all it does is make me feel useless for not being able to do it. So why do I want to do it myself?

Here goes: Be kind to yourself. Know it will pass. Know there are people concerned about you and rooting for you. I hope tomorrow is a better day
