Every night before going to sleep I think of the good things, try to boost my morale. But I am getting up depressed, start late, unable to complete work, look at my backlogs. And, depressed during the whole day unable to do work. This cylce continues everyday, and, I do not know how long I can continue this.

  • I went through something similar. I finally got up the nerve to discuss it with my family doctor. I didn't want to admit I needed help. Anyway, she started me on an anti-depressant. After months of depression, within days I was feeling back to normal. I continue this medicine and feel great. Please go see your family doctor or ob/gyn. They can help you. It can and will get better. Good luck.

This cylce continues everyday, and, I do not know how long I can continue this.This happens frequently to people when they are busy and have no other fun activity. Depression is something doesnt hit a person overnight. When a job becomes a routine and you find no interest in the work that your are doing getting depressed is very common. I had the similar situation in 2008 with the work load. I tried to do a couple of things which really helped me. I tried to go for a walk in the evenings. I went for long drives atleast once in a month or two. Did join gym and when the gym was not accessible I took some workout DVD's so that I could do at home and its a very nice mood regulator indeed. Some interesting workout DVD's are turbo jam, p90X etc etc... All I am trying to say is that when we dont get something interesting all these things happen. I would suggest you should take a nice vacation or try to get in touch with a hobby which interests you.
