    1, 2 and 5 are especially true which is when you should see a doctor or therapist because you’re probably suffering from depression.

        What do you do when you feel this way and you are already on meds for depression???

          Hi Carol, I’m not a trained medical professional. BUT I can tell you what works for me: Physical activity, even just walking. And a good therapist. Staying busy, doing things you enjoy. Even if you’re not in the mood. Hope this helps. <3 Rose

        Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Fibromyalgia, Depression. Difficut to diagnose the difference. All seem to be overlapping.

          So true. I think only a very skilled professional can make the distinction between these.

    Wonderful advice, Rose. And I agree with davesdining to discern if medical/therapeutic intervention is indicated. Thank you for your terrific posts!

      Hi Cathy, try to make one day this week a NON PJ day. Even if it’s just showering and changing into an oversized tee shirt. Start really simple. Also, getting outside helps regain some emotional strength. Sending you hugs and love <3 Rose Gardner.

      You are not alone kickingk, many struggle during the holidays. Don’t be hard on yourself. Do something special for yourself at least once a day. It can be small, but take time just for YOU. <3 Rose G.

    One very important weight to drop is feeling guilty for feeling this way. I think accepting the truth actually somehow starts a healing process which makes it less true. Seems to be a paradox. Thanks for speaking truth so we can embrace it.

    I can totally relate, I’ve had 3 straight pajama days this week. Alone, depressed feeling horrible and unwanted or needed. Like I don’t matter to anyone. People sure can make you feel low and unloved.

      Hi Zariah, sorry to hear you are struggling. People who make you feel low and unloved are NOT the people who should be in your life. Try surrounding yourself with positive cheerleaders, INCLUDING YOURSELF, and let the negative peeps go. Also, please visit my pages on FB. The Society for Recovering Doormats and Journey to Worthiness. Sending you many hugs and much love. Rose G. <3
