Hey guys and gals. I'm 53 yrs old Male. Lately absolutely nothing gives me joy or meaning. I show up sometimes 3 hours late for work. I just have no motivation at all. It use to not be this way. Why am I experiencing this. I'm looking for some tips from anyone who has encountered this in their life. Btw...there is no tragedies or shortcomings that are the cause. It just is there.

Hi Confused Dave welcome to the forums. I have experienced similar symptoms. I also had problems sleeping and between the depression and the lack of sleep I would drink about a lot of coffee a day just to keep going. Eventually I crashed and made an effort to get on some anti depressants (which sent me into mania which is how I found out I was bipolar but I digress). One of my symptoms was I stopped being able to eat much. The only way I was able to get to work on time was to wake up several hours before work started and do a five mile power walk to get my endorphins going. I slogged through the day at work and finally told my supervisor about it and she let me take a medical leave to have it treated. I would strongly suggest you speak with your doctor about what you have been experiencing. It is possible that medication could help you to avoid a crash and burn. We do have a Depression Forum you might find helpful to browse through and post in if you’d like. Here’s a link to it:


We are also here if you’d like to chat some too.
It’s nice to have you here with us. xo, j
