Depressed? Sad? What to do?
Tuesday, May 31, 2016
How do you know when you are struggling with depression? I feel depressed about a situation and most days don't want to leave home. So I struggle through a work day and put on a happy face until I can get back home again. There are a few days that I feel good & maybe even happy, but it doesn't last. It started with empty nest back in Sept so I have assumed it is situational, that maybe I need to give it a full year to grieve. But my youngest isn't speaking to me which makes it all the worse. Around the same time this started my bestest workout friend moved away. I've tried going to workouts and don't feel better afterwards. In fact I want to cry because I can't seem to do the things I used to do. As a result, I've gained quite a bit of weight back. Which makes me even sadder. At what point do you decide to see a doctor? Anyone have experience?
