Hi Pelican2, have you considered booking a psychologist appointment? Perhaps you could try some therapy as well?

I woke up this morning and pulled the covers over my face and then I thought.. “yes I can stay in bed all day and feel helpless but what else can I do”

“Also is it ok if I find it hard to get going? Of course. “

I believe each of us have a choice and that’s a wonderful thing.

lets choose for today, this morning or this hour to find one thing to lift our mood.

I can do it and so can you.
