Life feels dull and gray. No matter how much you want to engage in the present moment, your lack of energy and motivation leaves you numb and frozen. Hope is a word that has lost its meaning and at this point you're note sure which direction in life is "up".
Feelings of sadness, emptiness and hopelessness are relentless. Bad days seem more common than good ones. Tearfulness and crying spells feel more familiar than laughter and warmth.
Loss of interest
Things that once brought you joy are no longer enticing or stimulating. You wonder how you can keep up with daily responsibilities when you struggle to want to engage with your past joys.
Disruptions of energy
You might be sleeping too much or too little. Physically you feel slowed down and sluggish. Daily responsibilities like doing the dishes or showering can sometimes feel impossible.
