Please know it is not hopeless! It is hard, but try moving for 10-20 minutes a day, even just walking at the mall or in your neighorhood. Daily small amounts of activity can actually be energizing. I have to force myself sometimes but it really is worth it. Is there a gentle yoga or tai chi class you can join nearby? Even if you miss classes sometimes just having that on your schedule can be encouraging and you may meet people with similar concerns who have some understanding of what you’re going through. If your doctor is not addressing this or taking seriously maybe it’s time to find one who will. Give yourself permission to rest when you need it. That helped me a lot because I was stressing myself out thinking I was letting people down and I just had to say hey, I need this rest. I started keeping a gratitude journal that I write at least 3 things I’m grateful for every day and then when I’m really down I can look at it and things seem better. We are all so individual and have to just try things to see what works for each of us. So pick something to try and keep a log of whether it helps or not. That way you can take back control of some part of your life and see that you are trying to move forward. My mantra is “This is only temporary”. Where you are now is not where you will always be. Sending good thoughts and prayers your way!
