Pursuing "Life" while still recovering

Posted by Joanne on December 31, 1999, at 6:53:51

I've read several posts where some of you function extremely well on the outside, a.k.a. university classes, careers, professions..all those things in life many people (including me :) want. Although my depression is stabilized through the Wellbutrin/Ativan/Ambien/Sonata combo, it is still very difficult for me to commit to almost ANYTHING unless it's the spur of the moment. I rarely make plans in advance because I don't know if I'll be able to keep the commitment...depends how I feel that day! Anything from 'having lunch with a friend' to going to classes at the right time on the right day...terrify me. Is this just a social problem I have which has nothing to do with depression? (lack of being able to commit and do something. Girls I work with take 5 classes at college, raise kids, a husband, and a home, hold down a full time job, and they function perfectly well. I can barely make it to one class each day faithfully. Any advice? Maybe this is where I need to talk to my theraist. Anway, just seeing if anyone else out there has this problem. Doesn't seem like it, but if anyone does, I'd appreciate any help. Thanks, and Happy New Year Everyone!!!!!!Love, Joanne
