Depression set in, I feel like a zombie

I've been kind of bad lately, definitely not myself. Dreading things more than usual, not wanting to go to work, this cold weather is really getting to me too.

I wish I could tell you, describe to you the amount of sickness I felt today. I was so scared I was going to get even sicker, that scares me. Today was just really bad. I even called in and didn't go to work.

The zombie feeling was back, it's been a long time since I've had that and I'm sleeping a lot lately. I have to force myself to leave the house, even to run errands or work. I found a SAD light that a friend let me borrow and sat in front of it, 2 times today, 20 minutes each time. I'm hoping that will help me some.

Thanks for reading my post. I just needed to vent. If you have any other ideas for me please, please share them with me.

Hi :)

I was thinking whether it might be worth trying to get a SAD lamp like a alarm clock so before your alarm goes off for a while, you will get the light?

I'm sorry that you felt so bad you had to ring in sick :hug1:

Take care.
