    THANK YOU for this! Today in fact, I struggled (and lost the battle) to get myself to a doctor’s appointment. A few weeks ago, a different appointment fell victim. I feel guilty and embarrassed and I didn’t understand that this could be part of the depression.
    I can also identify with the mail thing. I have a stack of mail here about 14 pieces high and have opened perhaps half. I am expecting nothing bad, my bills are paid so why can’t I get it together?
    Same thing with a phone call I have been meaning to make for three weeks now. It’s not that difficult–and yet lately, it obviously is!

      Well, I woke up today to a hangnail which I’ve never had before, and it hurts so now I HAVE to go and get a pedicure so basically, unless I have PHYSICAL pain, I’m not moving!

    I cannot get out of bed. My house is a wreck. I lie in bed reading and watching Netflix.

    I didn’t know these were depression signs.

    I should know I was diagnosed bipolar I twelve years ago.

    Just thankful for the insight.

      Hi Deb, yes if you’re having trouble getting out of bed, and your place is a mess you should try and make an appointment with a professional cause those are bigger signs then the ones I mentioned in my article. Take care of yourself. Erica
