I have been struggling with feeling sad at different points

(855)

I have been struggling with feeling sad at different points in the day and always wanting to sleep. I can have happy moments throughout the day but then either anxiety or an extreme sadness hits me and I feel like crying. I am doing what I can to help myself but have a difficult time getting myself to do much, though there are spurts where I can. I started with a new psychiatrist a couple weeks ago and it felt like she was dismissing me and thought it wasn’t a major problem. She said she thought getting a hold of my sleep would help and put me on sleep meds. They work and I fall asleep but I am still exhausted. I want to get better and am pretty self aware from dealing with it for decades. I have done the therapy but I’m stuck in this hole. I know I need extra help which may be medical but do not feel like I have anyone to really help. How have you gotten through to doctors?

I sleep most of the day and even missed visiting my sister because I wanted to sleep. I also suffer from depression and wanting to sleep all the time. Maybe we can motivate each other

@hernameislauren I would love to have someone who understands to help hold myself accountable and get motivated. Sleep is the only thing I look forward to and what I wait for all day. It creeps in more and more into my work day. I think I crave it because my brain is shut off and I don’t have to think. Sleep has also helped calm and revive me in the past. What time of day is most difficult for you? How was your sister about it? Sometimes I think I purposely do it to avoid life.
