I've been depressed for a really long time. I'm a stay-at-home parent and I can no longer find the motivation to do anything. I do the bare minimum to care for my kids, I don't do laundry, I don't clean house like I should (I tidy up, bare minimum style) and I don't cook. I basically just lie around all day waiting for it to end so I can find some relief in sleeping until the next crappy day.
Lacking motivation to complete the simplest things on a daily basis is only making me feel even worse about myself. I have an easy job -- why can't I do it right? Some days are better than others but overall I am in a really dark place, have been for quite awhile and I don't know how to get myself out of this funk. I feel like I can hardly consider myself a functioning human being anymore.
Where do you find motivation to accomplish your goals? Where do you find the motivation to accomplish day-to-day tasks?
