I don’t have the energy/motivation to live my life

Ever since high school graduation, I’ve been chained to my bed.

Whenever I try to get out of it, my body feels so heavy and the only thing that I can think about is how tired I am. I get weird headaches from sleeping around too much, and I can feel my life wasting away by the minute, but my bed still won’t let me go.

I don’t have the energy or motivation to take care of myself or to be productive in any way. I lost passion for my hobbies and barely ever talk to my friends/family.

. . .

I don’t believe that I’m going through any depressive episodes – I’ve had one before, so I know what it’s like. Although, I do believe that my current actions may be a habit that developed from previous depressive episodes.

I was prescribed with meds for treatment, but I stopped. I didn’t think it was doing much for me. The lack of meds for my depression may be relevant to the current situation, but I doubt it.

. . .

I sleep way too much for it to be considered healthy. When I’m not sleeping, I’m laying around and doing nothing. I don’t want to continue this, but nothing else is keeping me motivated to stay out of bed. I want to get up and improve my life but I lack self discipline and always feel tired.

I just want to have a bit more energy. Anything that’ll make me feel like an actual living being. Anything that’ll give me the strength to get out of the bed and STAY out of it.

. . .

(You may see the same post a few times around reddit because I'm looking to get as much help/advice as I can)

Also, from other reddit posts, I was told that I may still be experiencing depression, even if I don't feel it emotionally.

I am scheduling an appointment with a therapist and psychiatrist but I would still like to hear what others have to say.
