    I just would like to know how many of you have given up things that you used to do, or find that they are a lot more difficult to do since your mental state?

    I'm sorry my reply to your thread is so late.. i've only just seen it. When i was at my lowest, i did stop doing a lot of things that I used to do. I found it hard to do anything at really.. but it's like a vicious circle because the least i did to keep busy, the worse i felt.

    Are you finding things difficult at the moment? It is a common symptom of depression so you're not alone... is your doctor aware of how you're feeling?

  3. Motivation is a big problem now for me. There are alot of things I used to do more that I'm not doing at all now...... like singing. My voice is exceptionally deep and I used to get compliments all the time. I don't know exactly what's the problem.....:unsure: but I could take a few wild guesses & most likely I'd be right.

    Yeah, I feel like the artist in me died. And that used to be a big part of my identity.

    I have found that the things I used to enjoy and that would make me most happy I can no longer enjoy. I used to be outgoing and love to be with people. Now I don't leave my home unless it is necessary and I can't wait to get back. I am also a musician and my music used to carry me away from all that hurt. Now I feel nothing. The more down time I have the worse I feel, yet I do not feel like doing anything. I prefer isolation. The cycle continues. :(

    very very important things that i loved almost seem like a burden now, and i cant bring myself to do them. i sit and lie down and do nothing, wasting away. i lost interest, motivation, and i want to change, but cant.

    i know exactly how you feel.

    I've given up most things. Nothing brings me happiness like it used to.

    I don't do things I used to do because I've found them pointless.
