If I stay home for more than a few days I get depressed. - April 30th 2015, 10:00 PM

I'm still getting over a pretty bad cold and haven't been outside properly for about five days. I've been to the chip shop with my dad but that wasn't really outside. I've noticed that if I stay inside for too long I'll get depressed :| It's not like it's been weeks or anything, just four-five days.

I feel like crap right now and it's not just because of the cold. I haven't felt like this in ages :/

Is this normal? I guess it would be if you haven't been outside for weeks but it hasn't been that long.

Need to go for a walk or something tomorrow.

I'd say that's pretty normal, especially if you've been sick. I got sick not long ago, and stayed inside, wasn't able to really do any chores, and because if the inactivity I just felt down. Just try and keep yourself a bit occupied and when you aren't sick really anymore, go outside and explore a bit, you'll feel better. Don't worry though, it'll pass.

This is extremely normal. When you are inside more than usual, you don't receive as much vitamin d as usual because your main source is the sun. Also, the fact that you're just almost away from the world can make you feel slightly lonely. I know this all too well, considering I'm home schooled and use to never get out of my house.
My best advice would be to just focus on getting over your sickness, get outside as much as you can, and stay connected with your friends. Hope you feel better soon :-)

If I don't exit my dwelling for one day, by early afternoon I start feeling very stuffed, headachy, nauseous. Like I physically am not getting enough fresh oxygen. So yes it's very normal.

I'd agree that this is normal. You have been stuck in the house for days and it's natural to want to get out. To be honest, I have actually being feeling the same way myself for the past couple of weeks now that the weather has been nicer (I'm not sick, but just don't wish to be cooped up inside).

I think going for a walk is a great idea - sometimes a good walk can do wonders

I know, right? Crazy how a 30 minute walk around the park helped me so much :| Just putting make-up made me feel better too. I went to the doctors earlier too for my contraception injection and just talking to him (someone new) helped a lot too.
