I dont feel motivated
darcywilder123 posted:
I am normally very motivated and love to work hard, but lately all I want to do is sleep! I am not suicidal/depressed. I get stressed out easily and I am 14 years old and very mature for my age. What is wrong with me?
darcywilder123 responded:

deasertrose replied to darcywilder123's response:
I have been depressed for most of my life. The symptoms I have are I don't enjoy doing anything that I use to like, sewing, cooking , gardening and going on vacation. I don't like being alone or with people. Right now I have severe problems with my memory, i sleep all the time and I shake. that might be a side effect of my meds. Hope this helps.

Hi darcywilder
I am sorry you are feeling the way you are but commend you on your efforts to seek help and advice.
I don't want to sound patronising but at 14 years old you have hormones flying through your body, peer pressure, exam pressure. Expectation to decide what you want to do with the rest of your life.
Darcy if this is not what is making you feel demotivated, I am going to hazard a guess at something more sinister. You do not have to share either way, I would just like you to know that help is out there on a personal level
People often say that motivation doesn't last. Well, neither does bathing - that's why we recommend it daily...........Zig Ziglar
