Too depressed to clean my apartment.

Posted by keva74 @keva74, Feb 6, 2019

Hi, I’m a 74 year old diabetic. It is type 2 and I was diagnosed in my 40’s. I have alternated between acceptance and completely ignoring it.the depression came on after I had a portion of my colon remove. During recovery I pulled my back out and have totally lost interest in daily cleaning. Dishes, laundry, floors, etc.. taking 100 mg sertraline, for 6 nonetheless but very little changes. I’m ashamed to have anyone over. It’s not healthy, but I’m having trouble getting started

@keva74

If I knew why, maybe I could change it, on my own. I’m physically able to do the work. I just see no purpose in it. No one ever comes over and I would try to stop them if they did. Sort of a catch 22. I want to have a clean place, but I can’t muster the interest to clean

Very smart idea. I’m thinking about doing that as well. I appreciate your suggestion. I do hate cleaning, especially dishes. Might switch to paper plates, too.
