I Don't Feel Like It

"I Don't Feel Like It."

If you're like me, suffering the effects of clinical depression, I'm sure you've uttered that phrase more than once. No matter what I attempt, either through traditional or alternative means, I still have days that I just don't want to participate in the daily activities that comprise this thing we call life. Today is one such day.

When I woke up this morning, I felt "blah." You know what I mean? The whole world just looked gray and lifeless, yet there wasn't a cloud in the sky. I tried to shake the feeling--I showered, exercised and even meditated--but I just couldn't get going. Sometimes I feel that days like these take away far more than just 24 hours. They seem to have a lingering effect that's hard to put into words.

So today, instead of offering advice, I'm going to ask for some. What sort of things have you tried to beat these "blue" days? With your permission I'd like to reprint some of your responses in hope that they will help others who are also struggling. Leave me a comment or send me an email. Thanks.
