Default No Enthusiasm for anything

It's been around 6-8 months since I 'recovered' from Depression and Anxiety, but I'm now stuck with motivation so low that I can't even be bothered to do simple tasks like make my bed or fold my clothes or do anything but stay in the house. 3 years back I was doing important tasks like school assignments early but now, at Uni, I tend to do it the day before. I'm even studying for exams on the same morning. :oops:

This is having a really bad effect on my life and my future. At Uni I'm missing all these chances to meet and become better friends with the people there. I actually asked one out of those few girls whom I like but know they also like me, then ditched her by not calling her later that week. Yes, incredibly stupid and insesitive... I feel really bad about it but it's the past now.

I feel quite stuck now, 'low motivation' should have disappeared with the rest of Anxiety and Depression but this symptom has lingered. Does anyone have any suggestions? Please I really need help here, this is just as bad as any anxiety, and there aren't any guides I can find that will help me find some solution to it. well excepting all those self-help and self-motivational books/videos, that don't seem to do anything for me :?

Does the idea of doing anything at all get you excited? Do more of those. I can't tell you what those things are, but have a think and figure out what does it for you.

For me it's writing. I can't get enough of it. I always have at least 4 stories on the go and that makes me want to get onto the 'net every day or so and write a bit more.

I have had this for the last so many years. It was so bad, that I was too lazy to
open my bills & pay them. In my case it was severe fatigue.

I tried different things. Biggest thing was changed my diet. Also found that I have
something called Candida, which creates food allergies, anxiety, fatigue etc
With Candida, as long as you eat sugars and carbs, it feeds the yeast in the body
which makes your symptoms worse. Changing the diet helps a lot.

Try & get to the root cause. If Western Medicine doesnt get you there, explore
other ones.

List your other symptoms if you have any?

Plenty of things get me excited and I would like to do them, but most involve money - I haven't got a job and the enthusiasm to get one just isn't there. There's also the time problem, any job I'll get will conflict with Uni.

I used to enjoy creative writing, but in my depression I think I might have conditioned myself to associate it with absolute failure (I declined so much at that time that I didn't bother to hand in the assignment to complete a course I was doing well in). I haven't picked up a pen to do some creative writing since.

I understand you, it's hard to explain that you care for others but then you don't at the same time. This has been my mentality for years, I told myself to be passive and avoid everything, but I used to be a very different person not too long ago.

It could very well be severe fatigue. I've had many restless nights for the last few months even though I'm my least stressful since it's the holidays. I've been treated for Depression but not Insomnia (which I originally sought to find help for), so it'd be a good idea to consult the doctor.
Other symptoms - I'm not sure but I'm restless at night (mostly because of the environment where I sleep) but when I do sleep it's often for 12+ hours, well into the afternoon sometimes.

I also lack motivation for everything. I actually find that caffeine helps a little bit, but it's temporary, and I develop a tolerance to the effects if I drink coffee every day, so I don't.
Most of the time I just sit at home and avoid stuff. Can't seem to care enough about stuff to do anything about it.
