Have you ever been treated for depression or anxiety?
It does feel more physical than some sort of unwillingness. I know that I'm far from lazy-I look at my work and home energy in between whatever this is/can be.
It happens more when I'm dealing with emotional pain that I'm trying to theoretically run from or stuff down. So, though I know my anxiety well enough I know this is usually a depression symptom.
I never thought anyone else could understand how I feel. No one else has ever understood this no matter how I've tried to explain it.

It is exactly that. Frozen.

It is emotional pain I am...hiding from I guess....I know it's there but I don't know how to change it so I just bury it. But I think it causes a void that I try & fill with other things sometimes like exercise or getting too involved in other people's lives. Distraction perhaps? But inevitably it leaves me feeling empty. & like there is actually a gaping hole in my body.

Thank you Healing4me for understanding me,

Thank you Annoyedgrunt 84 for this thread I'm sorry if I've butted in on you. I just...it just meant a lot to be understood.

& sorry I've been treated in the past for depression, my anxiety has never been treated & I am depressed again I think but some days I feel better & then think it feels like I made the depressed days or hours up so I've never been back to my GP. Though I do have an app in a couple of weeks time because the lows are getting lower even though they are not necessarily lasting longer than a few days at a time.

Thank you again.
