Hi everyone thanks to prozac and therapy and you all I can get out of bed. Now i'm trying to work on getting to work on time. I just feel lethargic in the morning or I can't wake up and it's hard to get to work on time. Also i'm so lonely, i'm 27 I've been living here on my own for three years now I don't know anyone never had a boyfriend and I feel afraid of my future. How will I manage if i'm old and alone? Who will carry the groceries up the stairs? I think about stuff like that.

It warms my heart to hear that you're doing well. It should be encouraging for you that you want to continue improving by getting up and out the door in time for work. When your alarm goes off for work instead of hitting the snooze button slowly stretch nice and long in your bed and then swing those feet over the edge. Sit for a minute, take a deep breath and be thankful for another day. Keep a glass of water next to your bed and drink the whole glass. You'd be amazed at how refreshing a simple glass of water is first thing in the morning. As you make your way out of bed try not to focus on how lethargic you may be feeling and instead try to experience a bit of joy in the little steps you take to get ready. Thankful that you have a job to go to, thankful that you have a refreshing shower, thankful for the clothes you're able to get dressed in. A little gratitude can go a long way. Find a great motivational quote that really speaks to you and put it on your mirror to help get your going on your journey for the day.
It's always been really hard for me to meet people. I'm painfully introverted but taking classes has always helped. I can choose to socialize or just simply be engaged in the class. I feel like that gives me a bit of control rather than just throwing myself into a complete social situation. At least I can be somewhat confident that everyone in that class is there because they have an interest in that hobby as well so we can start out with some common ground. Hope these suggestions can help and praying for your continued progress.

@Romens8
I am proud of you for making the progress that you have made. You should be proud of yourself as well. Try to take each day as it comes and take baby steps to get back to how you want to feel. Try not to allow the anxiety of thinking of the future overwhelm you. You are a beautiful, valuable young lady who deserves to be happy. The future will be much brighter for you, just don't rush time and enjoy each day one day at a time. We are here for you.

Hey Romans8!

May I ask why your user name is Romans 8?
Could it be because of the chapter? In the event that it is, I must say that 8:28 is one of my favorites and so appropriate as a part of my response to your post!

Gods word in Romans 8:28 states "And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose."

You open up by stating that you can now get out of bed! Amen! That is such a blessing!!!! I absolutely validate your stated concerns and note that most people who are single ponder upon those things at some point, it's ok to but...
One day at a time Romans8, be proud of the progress you have made, and KNOW that you will continue to make!
