tired and unmotivated - February 1st 2010, 09:25 PM

This thread has been labeled as triggering by the original poster or by a Moderator. Please take this into consideration before continuing to read.

recently i have beeen very tired and unmotivated more than usual i have already been diagnosed with depression (i have not been put on anti depressants as my docotor does not want to put me on them and i dont want to go on them either as i have been on ritalin and concertas most of my life for ADHD) but the thing is all day im feeling tired, no matter what i do what time i go to bed or sleep in until i am tired and am finding it hard to get motivated and going but i have to, some mornings i am fighting a battle agianst my body to get out of body i think i have got worse, at work i cant go quick, im just on a go slow have been for 3 weeks is it worth going back to the doctor and talking to the doctor or should i just leave it and hope it will pass ? all i know is i cannot go on like this, its afftecting my work, my college work and its affecting me so much, i dont want to be on anti depressants at the moment i am med free and want to remain this way but i know i cant go on like this. do i just wait and see if it will pass or do i talk to my doctor and explain how i have been feeling to my mum ? what do i do ?

Well if you explain how you feel, it could help you. Unfortunately, if they don't have any alternative solutions, they may put you on medications.

Perhaps you should try some St.Johns Wort? I've heard that some folks have used it for their depression, and it's all-natural. So I mean, it wouldn't be AS much like a medication. And if you're tired, perhaps some Vitamin B-12 could help too? So try getting a Vitamin B Multivitamin.

If none of the above work, after trying them out for about 2-4 weeks, then it may be time to go to your doctor.

I think that you should talk to your doctor about it. You shouldnt just sit around and try t o let something like this past on your own bc its going to be even harder to go thru

St Johns wort is available in the UK, I think asda sells it, it's usually with the vitamins and stuff. Maybe talk to your doctor about doing some cognitive behavioural therapy or seeing a councillor? sometimes they can help
