Hello, I don't know if I'm depressed, I've never even had a psychologist. But recently, I started just not feeling anything about any event in my life. I fail a class? ok. I lose my job? ok. I'm not happy, I'm not sad. I'm nothing. And I can't bring myself to do things, especially cleaning. My room is absolutely disgusting and it physically pains me to even think about cleaning. Even thought I hate living like this. I have to force myself into the shower when I have work in the morning. I don't want to talk to anyone about this, most of my friends didn't see a change. When I go to work or talk to friends I act like my normal happy self that never sees bad in the world.

serotonin and dopamine drop a person can feel kinda lifeless and dead inside. loosing motivation. becoming bored and tired with everything. etc...

people who have always had higher serotonin and dopamine wont understand that. they take them for granted.

dopamine is a relaxing and pleasurable feeling that is released when we have food or sex or material pleasures.

serotonin is pleasurable but not relaxing, it pumps us up. raising speed of mind, intelligence, self-esteem etc... giving energy and life.

Sounds like depression, but if it was severe you'd know.

There will be better days for you.

Music helps me. Music therapy or listening to good and uplifting songs on youtube makes me feel and think better. Listen to music several times a day or whenever you can.

Also doing what I love to do which is writing helps me too. What do you love to do? What are you good at? Is it cooking, baking, gardening, doing arts and crafts? Do it and it will make you happy and even be successful.

We can’t diagnose on the forum but it sounds very much how
I am when depressed.

I feel nothing matters and everything matters.
Like you with your room.
You don’t like it like that but can’t be bothered to do anything
with it.
That is exactly how I am.

But we are good at putting a ‘mask’ on with others and they all
think we are ok.

Have you seen your doctor?
If not, could I suggest that you do.

Wishing you well.

That sounds like depression but it would be good to get a diagnose by a professional and get a little more help to handle it. Because it can be other things causing you to feel that way and self-diagnose is never good to do.

At least you can try do little things at a time and set up routines in you day. That’s what have helped me a little. You start small and slowly build it up over time.

For example sunday is the day I clean. How much I don’t want to do it and wants to just lay in the bed, I will at least go up and do a little cleaning. Every day is a struggle to get up and start it for me.

It can also help writing down the things you need to do and check it off when you have done it.
