Hi & welcome to any Newbies :)

This thread is mainly used for brief pen pictures. Post where you like but you are more likely to get responses if you press the 'New Topic' button to start your own thread in the Newbies or Mutual Support rooms.

Best Wishes

I'd suggest not thinking of yourself as lazy is a good starting point :) . I've heard it said by experts that lack of self compassion is one of the pillars of depression. Cut yourself some slack :) If we could consciously control this thing then we wouldn't be depressed or anxious, it can't be said too often that just trying to pull yourself together doesn't work and nor does beating yourself up about it.

I would try small and gentle steps. Break things up into small chunks. Start with getting dressed, then spending time in the sitting room one day before trying to walk to the end of your path the next, etc. A great suggestion I have heard for getting moving is to go to sleep in sportswear, that way you can get up, put trainers on and get outside without stopping to think.

Sorry this is the first answer you have had. This thread is mainly for introductions and questions or requests for responses are often missed. You will get more responses if you want to paste your post into a new thread in the Newbies or Mutual Support rooms.

Be kind to yourself.

Thank you for getting back to me. I feel like an idiot now. For posting in the wrong place. I don’t know what to do with my feelings, I have a partner but he’s grieving recently after the loss of one of his relatives. But I need someone, all I have is him. I hate coming home to an empty house and no one to give a toss what time I get home. If it wasn’t for him I don’t think anyone would notice if I was dead or alive. I hate the emptiness of this house. I don’t have any family. I wish I had someone.. all I need is just someone who loves me then I think I would be okay

Hello Everyone

I came across this site while looking at the NHS mental health website. I like the look and sound of this site and has made me feel comfortable to register. Hopefully, I can get help here and maybe help others too. :-)
