Anyone else just lay in bed all day due to depression?

I just want to sleep and never get up, just want to die!

Today is a laying in bed day. Now I don't work so no pressure to get up, race here, race there, do that. I pop my medication and stare at the walls.

Makes me feel better knowing that I'm not the only one who spends their life in bed. It's sad that we have to go online to express ourselves. Wish we could just share a cuppa together. The only people that understand are fellow sufferers. Very foggy and dark outside and it's only 2.45 pm. My cats have been asleep most of the day. Will just carry on reading my book and eating crisps.

It’s currently 9:40pm and I have been in bed all day. My family are mad at me because they don’t understand, to them I am just lazy. It’s funny because if I had a physical illness and stayed in bed, there would be no issue, but because my illness is “invisible” I’m labelled lazy.

I suffered from depression amd anxiety for many years, but this is the first time I cant get out of bed.
Today I left home to run some errands and suddenly I started feeling extremely tired and sleepy.
I had to return home , of course to bed. I lost my job on may and I feel I am falling into a ditch. I am afraid to loose my mind. Doctors tell me I have to think positive, but that is bullshit. I am sick and pills are not working . I would love to enjoy life, certainly life must be beautiful, but I cant and will never be able to enjoy it. I will like my life to end,but accidentally, not self inflicted. I am a bit afraid of what happens to people who committ suicide. Maybe they end up in a worst place.

My heart goes out to you all. Maybe some wonder treatment is on the horizon and we will all be cured in the future. I stopped taking antidepressants after 30 years on Friday, after tailing off for a year. I had been on the smallest dose (a few grains) for months. My God! spent all weekend trying not to kill myself. Held on and am now having these weird up and down feelings; hard to explain, even food tastes different. How can a few grains make such a massive difference? I intend to stay off for a month and see how I feel. The tiredness is slightly reduced. Marianda, your doctor has no understanding of depression. 'Stay positive' makes me want to scream. Try and do one nice thing for yourself today. It's harder to stay alive when life is so tough but I really don't think suicide is the answer.

Thanks for your kind words. I have tried so many times to stop taking antidepressants and the first 2 days I feel good , I feel my old self,but then I crash down. . I am going through a rough period, lost my job and I am in the middle of a family battle for an inheritance. I have 3 lawsuits. To make things worst my anxiety is so bad that is killing my inmune system. Everytime I have a problem I get all kind of infections . Why life has to be so sad?

Essentially yes, i transfer to the sofa perhaps but still do little but exist when i am not at work or other stuff.
I am in a bad habit of being awake mindlessly watching tv or surfing the net until 2 or 3am and i can sleep until 12-2pm so i lose most of my days to sleep.
I find sleep easier than long depressed days.

Uhh I made it!! Finally I got out of bed and went to a very nice restaurant for lunch with a friend¡! I have been so low in the last days and spent so many hours in bed that I started feeling tired in the middle of the lunch. The weather does not help. Its always overcast and gloomy here
I need some sun to cheer up.

Hopefully the law suits will seem like a bad dream soon. These things take ages and dealing with lawyers is so frustrating Marianda. Am sure you will get another job eventually and begin to rebuild your life. I know what you mean about sunshine. The weather makes such a difference to how people feel. The circle of life is all ups and downs but we have to keep trying. Look after yourself and get plenty of 'B' and 'C' vitamins.
