    No motivation to do anything anymore

    I donít know if this is in the right spot or not but, Iíve come to a point in my life where I have literally no motivation anymore and I donít know why. Everyday is a struggle for me. I left a toxic job recently to start a new one a few weeks ago hoping it would make my life easier to say the least. But I have no motivation to start learning a new job again, and I feel like Iím in a brain fog every single day and the things I take in at this new job just go in one ear and out the other. That scares me because if I donít learn the job properly, I obviously wonít do well and therefore I wonít be able to work. And thereís so much that I have to learn, and itís making me incredibly anxious, and I already want to leave. And on top of that, I have no motivation to even finish college because Iíve had to work full time and I donít have the time to do any of my schoolwork, and that compounds me not wanting to do anything anymore either.

    I could literally go on and on with a ton of other issues compounding my problem, but I wouldnít even know where to start. Iíve tried to better my life so many times, and each time I think itís going somewhat marginally better, it just gets taken away. I canít think of anything else to try and make it better anymore. I thought life would get better as I got older but it has just gotten worse.

    Frankly, it sounds like depression. I felt that way after my illnesses and sought professional help. With therapy, meds and hard work I was able to overcome it. You can do the same if you apply yourself.

    I can relate, dealing with brain fog and a total lack of motivation toward by job right now. Sad and hopeless about eveything also. Therapy is helping me now...my current therapist isn’t pushy or judgemental in any way and just lets me vent. Looking into trying meds again as well.

    Maybe you need first to find yourself again and the reason why are you doing things. Indulge also in recreational activities like walking, exercising or yoga. It would help you to have clearer mind and attain inner peace.

    It is very hard when the old black dog comes through your door.
    I don’t have any motivation on bad days,I don’t even get out of bed or eat,it is bloody awful,even my meds don’t help.
    Done the yoga thing but wasn’t my cup of tea I do exercise when I am well I jump on my motorbike and go for a ride in the country.

    Wishing you better days ahead

    Lolalee1, have you seen the people that tour Europe, India and the US on their bikes. It looks like absolute bliss.

    On the other hand I did 12 miles on a scooter in winter and when I got back home I was so froze stiff that the misses had to put the bike away from me. Took me about 3 hours to get home because I got lost and my phone battery died

    @OP yes I can relate very much to this. Agree with Fishmanpa it sounds like classic depression.

    I am feeling rightly the same way. I dont have that drive unlike before. I dont know who to turn to, to speak up to...I just feel so discouraged.
