Default Unemployed

Anyone else unable to work due to being depressed? I left my job in October. 2013 because of anxiety and found a new job feb 2014. I left there June 1 because of overwhelming fatigue that won't go away and my job was very physically demanding. I want to go back to work but I'm so damn tired all the time I can barely function. Anyone else ? How do I get more energy?

Me. I have managed somehow to work my whole life but things got so bad and long lasting I applied for SSD. It's on appeal and no idea if I will win. This summer I have been feeling better and have worked some but I can feel it creeping back.

I haven't been able to hold a job for long due to anxiety and depression. Can't get SSD, not enough job history. Don't know if I could qualify for disability, but I wish I could. Sorry for your troubles.

I'm not working. Try women's energy alive brand vitamin. Make sure it's the energy one. Pretty sure there has been improvement for me.

I can relate. I managed to get myself terminated on account of my absence. I had no motivation or energy to keep working long, physically demanding days and nights. And it is even more difficult when you have anxiety. My anxiety keeps me up til morning most nights which has also resulted in missed interviews. I have tried jogging lately for the simple reason of "feel good" endorphins that are released during the exercise. I try working out often in hopes of tiring myself out so by the time night falls I might get a decent sleep. It doesn't work though, neither do all the sleeping pills. Have you tried other places of employment that are no so demanding?

All you need is your doctor to back you up for SSDI. I also worked part time.

I was teaching until I just could not go on any longer. I am 55, so I told everyone I was taking an early retirement. No one cared. I got SSDI and feel like somewhat of a loser for quitting work, but I just could not do it.

My pdoc has said he is totally on my side but I still am very worried I won't win. Especially since I have done a lot better this summer. That seems to be changing though.
