Default I can't get out of bed, I don't laugh anymore

Hello,
I am here to get some support of course. I have a hard time getting out of bed. I don't laugh anymore. I don't feel like myself at all. I am 41 years old, just got out of a relationship, and am on antidepressants and I don't feel anything is working! I don't even want to take a bath!! I know it's gross but I have no motivation. I'm not interested in my children. This is all just wrong! I don't want to feel like this!

Hi Cc77, just wanted to say hello and glad you're here. I found this forum about 3 weeks ago. It seems like many people here on the forum, including me, share your experience. I also never want to get out of bed, feel joy in my heart, or interest in anything...for months now. It's good to hear you're on antidepressants. I hope that starts helping soon. Keep posting and enjoy reading the posts. It's a supportive community here I'm finding, you don't have to hide. - Grace

Hi there and welcome
I am glad you found your way here as you can get plenty of support here. I think the anti depressants will help you but I noticed you saying you don't want to feel like that and this is a good sign you want to get better
How long have you been depressed.

Hi there. I'm sorry you are feeling so melancholy. I've been there. It's very exhausting and depressing. I'm glad you are on antidepressants. If they are not working though, either you've not been on them long enough or perhaps you need to switch. I hope you will post in the depression forum and meet some other members who can be empathic toward your plight. You are not alone for sure. I know life feels like a real effort right now, so it is good to get all the support you can. I hope you can find lots here. All the best to you my friend.

Hello Cc77, it's nice to meet you. Welcome to Psych Central. I'm glad you are here.
Every accomplishment you make will bring you closer to freedom. I didn't want to get out of bed today, but I forced myself. Now I feel a little bit better. I understand what you mean about the shower. That's the next big step for me. I don't want to. I have to go out and mow the lawn, so I'll probably wait until I finish that to take a shower.

It is great that you are on medication for your Depression. You must be seeing a doctor then. You are brave and making some good choices. Keep up the good work.
If you want a good laugh, check out Dane Cook on youtube. He is so funny. Beware of a lot of filthy words. Don't listen in front of the kids.

Well, I sure hope you get to feeling better. See you around.
