Does anyone experience the feeling of wanting to sleep all day? And even the thought of doing anything that takes a little effort seems like too much? I think I have been somewhat depressed all my life, but it has now reached a point where I just don't want to get out of bed any more. It's kinda scary, but I don't know how to turn it around.

How to turn it around... depends on why are you depressed. Its hard, some things arent easy to change, and some problems are really hard. What are your problems about ? When you think in cold, are so bad ? Your problems dont let you be happy ? Or its that you dont have anything to feel happy and you cant find something that gives you joy ?

Ah yes, it happens to me all the time. When things get hard, I get sleepy so I can just not deal with it.

Yeah that happens to me when my depression gets really bad
I'll literally stay in bed in the same spot the whole day and then just go to bed.

This happens to me sometimes. For me, I think the medication helps. It's not easy when it comes to finding a medication that works well, but I think once you do it can make a difference. I still deal with feeling anxious and depressed, but at least I'm not crying all the time. I hope you find something that will work for you.

I know this sounds stupid, but... did you try a cup of coffee or something with sugar to stimulate your body?
