I've posted before...I am diagnosed with depression and anxiety. I was diagnosed 5 years ago. Then it got better. Now it's worse It got really bad for a while. I had a few EEGs done and my brain activity wasn't the best. It showed I had bad depression.
I've been battling for a year now or more since I relapsed into my anxiety/depression. I was good for a while. I have not been back to "normal" since all of this happened again. But I have been better. Lately I am so LOW.
I HAVE NO MOTIVATION. I am able to go to work and if I push hard enough, I can wake up. But I could sleep all day everyday.
And it sucks because my anxiety doesn't feel that high, but the world just seems so different than it's ever did. It feels like I'm living in such a strange world.
I keep analyzing how things feel and look. I can't stop obsessing. I feel so tired and nothing seems to help. I wish I could get back to normal.
I'm just afraid I never will get back to normal or will end up on a psychiatric unit. That's a HUGE fear of mine. I'm afraid I will "lose touch with reality" or get I to a state where I have to be institutionalized forever.
I just want to feel good again. Any advice or thoughts?
I have spoken to my psychiatrist. I'm on trintellix, effexor, Clonazepam, and Seroquel.

Thanks in Advance

Hiya. You are on some heavy drugs which won't be helping with the lack of motivation and desire to sleep. Nowadays in Britain there aren't enough psych beds to be stuck in an institution for life and they don't do that any more anyway. I'm pretty sure it would be the same in Nebraska. So if you needed to go into hospital you would not be over kept. But there is little reason to think that will be necessary.

Depression is exhausting and horrendous - I know I speak from experience. You feel every minute of every day as it drags on and on. I am sorry that you are going through this. Have you ever tried any therapy?
