Has anyone continued to feel exhausted and drained of energy even after recovering from depression?
After two years of moderate depression (and anxiety) I made significant improvements and have now felt consistently well for four months (HURRAY!
), to the point that I'm now gradually reducing my anti-depressant dosage. But the one thing that hasn't improved as much as I hoped is my energy level. I'm still physically and mentally sluggish, struggling to manage a full week of 9-5s and needing a whole day of being horizontal and doing nothing at the weekend to recover.
My sleep pattern is good and I'm eating well, but I'm really missing the energy and drive I used to have and wondering if I'll ever get it back? I'd really like to hear your experiences/thoughts/advice.
