A year and a half ago I went through a terrible time with my manic depressision and post traumatic stress disorder. I ended up being committed and spent 3 months away from my family. After coming home I have had a very good control and awareness of my depression and no manic episodes, but I also have no motivation to do anything!!! I am tired during the day to the point that my doctor has put me on a stimulant called providal 2x a day and although it has helped if I sit down or say...go to church I will still fall asleep. I am drinking caffine in the morning to keep myself awake but if I drink it in the afternoon I do not sleep at night. My night time sleeping consists of interupted episodes where I can not stay in bed and now I am bothered also by twitching and jumping in my legs. I do not feel my depression is getting bad again but I have no feelings at all except frustration with myself, I have no motivation to do anything I have a daughter getting ready for prom and another expecting her first baby and although I am happy for them in their excitement I just can't get up enough stamina to even want to go to the store. Is this chronic fatigue or more post tramic stess from the results of the trama I have went through in the last year and a half?
