    Sorry to hear that.

    What are your biggest stessors now?

    Are you still on Lexapro or was it still making you tired? Are you able to see a therapist?

    It may also help to get some bloodwork done to check for thyroid, vitamin deficiencies, etc.

    It sounds like things are really tough for you forgetmenot.

    Is there one small change you could make for yourself just to have one thing that's different to look forward to?

    And my guess is you need to put yourself first regardless of what is going on in your family.

    Have you ever benefited from a hot bath or something like that? Small ways of putting self-care first.



    Or some other distraction may be helpful to kill time and relax until you get professional help.

    As for me, I had always thought myself tough, one of the people who could survive if I'd been sent to a concentration camp.

    In 1991, I had a series of losses. My mother died, a relationship I'd been in ended, I moved back to the United States from some years abroad, and I got through all of those experiences intact.

    But in 1994, three years later, I found myself losing interest in almost everything. I didn't want to do any of the things I had previously wanted to do, and I didn't know why. The opposite of depression is not happiness, but vitality. And it was vitality that seemed to seep away from me in that moment. Everything there was to do seemed like too much work. I would come home and I would see the red light flashing on my answering machine, and instead of being thrilled to hear from my friends, I would think, "What a lot of people that is to have to call back." Or I would decide I should have lunch, and then I would think, but I'd have to get the food out and put it on a plate and cut it up and chew it and swallow it, and it felt to me like the Stations of the Cross...
