Dealing with unexplained depression

Lately I haven’t felt like myself. Everything is grey and dull, and it’s always a struggle to get out of bed in the morning. I feel like I’m walking through life with a fog around my head every day, and it’s hard to shake off.

It’s frustrating because I can’t seem to figure out why this is happening. Everything should be ok on the surface - no job losses or health problems, but still here’s this sadness that pervades everything.

I know what people will say - exercise, talk to someone, join a group - but everything feels like too much effort at the moment. It seems like there is an insurmountable amount of energy needed just to make it through the day never mind try something new.

Maybe tomorrow will be better. For now, try to focus on getting through today as best you can. That’s what has been helping me lately - trying hard not to focus on the future but just the task that needs to be done right now until things may eventually start getting better.
