  • Can Social Anxiety make you lazy or just too tired to complete projects?

    I seem never to be able to complete a project like painting the walls or cleaning my apartment (I've half painted a wall 3 times). I never have the energy or make an excuse for myself. I don't have anybody to encourage me. I just don't know if it's because I'm lazy or something else. Sometimes when I take my meds I feel a bit more empowered but other times they make me want to curl up on the couch.
  • How do I not feel drained in my own home?

    Hey, so I just joined. Some back story for the above question: My husband and I invited a friend to move in with us about a year ago. This friend had just graduated college was kicked out of her parents home and was jobless. Now this friend has a job. All three of us have some mental health issues. I have anxiety/depression which I take medication for. My husband has some anger/paranoia which he goes to a counselor and therapist for. Our friend has depression. Anyway recently it seems like everyone is just tense. My husband and this friend at separate times come to me with near identical complaints about the other and how they won't listen, are toxic and manipulative etc. Additionally this friend is constantly complaining about how they don't have friends, how we don't care about them, how we never spend time with them. I am already incredibly drained from long unpredictable work hours and doings tasks all day long that tax my anxiety. Like public speaking, phone calls, open office environment, etc. When I get home I do try to be available for my friend but there works hours are even longer and more unpredictable than mine. However I just I feel like I am walking on eggshells in my own home. I don't know what to do. Does anyone have any advice or resources I can use?
  • Why do I cry?

    I am not shore what is going on with me. My energy is low, I cry for no reason. Mood is changing like a traffic light. My sister tells me that I have depression and anxiety. I do not have some special problem, could this be some phase or she is right?
