I'm not sure to who this will go to but if you are a trained therapist, pls tell me how I should deal with my depression. I am currently umemployed and dont have the money to go see a psychiatrist/therapist who could help me. My problem in a nutshell is this - I dont know when my depression creeped in that bad but since the past one year I cannot recall when I was truly happy or excited about anything. I have tried to read a lot on how to tackle depression and anxiety, and whenever I felt low, I would do some of my fav activities like making cards, etc. While that kept me engaged and happy for a while, the past six months, nothing keeps me happy. Things that once used to excite me no longer. It has come to this that I feel tired ALL-THE-TIME and starting my day and getting out of the bed feels like a HUGE task. It has affected my daily work so much so that my levels of productivity have gone down. I was once an achiever and a go-getter, now I dont even recognize myself. Pls help me.
