Stuck: Lost All Ambition

I have friends and relatives who have depression and they will tell me they get mad when people tell them to take action because with their depression there is nothing they can do. I don't agree and that is why I try to get help and take action. Sometimes no matter what I do I don't feel better but I work as hard as I can, which is very hard when depressed, to get better.

@blue99 I have been diagnosed with clinical depression a couple of times, and know it is easy for me to slip into that mindset. In my humble thinking, not taking any action is also an action, if that makes sense to you. I applaud anyone who makes the effort to change their situation, no matter how small. It takes a lot of energy to get out of the quagmire, doesn't it? And a lot of imagination, and not just a little bit of bravery. I applaud all of us @georgette12 @kleelibby @johnhans and all those who are reading this thread, nodding their heads knowing we are all part of this group!
