 Duke - Mon Jan 30, 2006 9:01 am

today i was ment to go to work as and i really need the money but i just don't seem to have the energy or the motivation i just feel laszy, now the thing is that this keeps happaning i'll be full of energy for a few days sometimes wont even be able to sleep ive got so much, then all of a sudden i just wake up and i just cant be asked to do anything. but a day or two later i'll be full of energy. its realyl starting to effect my finacial situation. so is there something wrong or am ijust plain lazy?

another thing while iam here while iam at work as its not a particuly brain demanding job (iam a window cleaner) all i do i think and get worried about my girlfriend thinking all the time "is she cheating on me, is she gona finish with me, am i keeping her interested enough" its driving me mad and its putting a real big strain on my relationship as it worries me so much even though i know its stupid and it just doesnt go out of my head that i keep getting jealous around my girlfriend when she goes out with friends and i keep asking really stupid questions with almost split up 4 times this past week because of it. and whats more because iam not regully going to work i cant afford to by her things or take her out much to apolagise wich in turn worries me more that she's gona get bored of me cause i know she really likes going out.

i really need some help or just advice.

User avatar This is looking like a self-esteen/depression issue to me. You sleep alot,lack of energy, plus you have concerns about your girlfriend leaving you and so on. I would recomend getting checked out by a doc and getting on some form of antidepressant possibly. With this info you have given thats all the advice I can give. But thank you for writing, I hope this was of some help. Good luck to you.
