I am recently unemployed and in a severe depression. The depression is not just about the recent ending of my contract, but before that, I lost a relationship and my house and never fully recovered.
Anyway, now, amid all the horrible talk of the economy, I have to go out and find a job. But I am deeply depressed, and at night I have goals of getting out of bed and encourage myself and even write a note to put next to the bed.
But the next morning, it is like something in me is tieing me to the bed. I wake with very frightening, anxious or dark thoughts.
And I SIMPLY CAN'T GET OUT OF BED. It's like I'm stuck, and the hours tick by.
Do any people with severe depression problems have any tips for how to get out of bed?
