Am i lazy , depressed or what is wrong with me?
I am 72 and live alone. I never had children. So i really do feel very alone. I don't have any friends to run around with. My dr. says i am fine and i am taking Zoloft which i love and plan to never quit it. But still i am so lazy . I just stay home because i don't want to get up and clean up. It just does not seem worth the effort. I have lots of friends and aquaintances but no one close to share my life or a meal or to chum around with. Now that is depressing and i can't seem to fix it. I have 2 dogs and we are outside walking a lot ; meeting and talking to people and that is it. I have worked hard all my life;hard physical work and long hours . I retired to nothing. I do have a little part time job that gets me up and out 2-3 days per week. I know i am lonely but nothing seems to work to help me with that problem. Any suggestions . I think most of all ; i would like to feel good enough that i wanted to take a shower and get fixed up everyday.But it's like ; "why bother" .
