I Can't Find the Energy to Exercise after Work

Dear A.B.,

I've been also feeling guilty that I just collapse into bed right after I get home from work from fatigue and exhaustion. I feel I'm not working on the depression enough by just staying in bed, I feel I should exercize, eat properly or engage in some activities but just can't find the energy at the moment. And I do need all the energy to get through work right now. But again, maybe I'm being too hard on myself -- it's a fine line isn't it... lazy or relaxing ? Y______

Dear Y______

When you have put in a good day's work, and the work has been difficult, and you have stuck to the work and finished, then it is time to rest and relax. You should eat properly but this should be a matter of a little forethought rather than fixing anything elaborate. Perhaps work is the only activity you have the energy for at the moment. That is quite all right. As the work becomes easier you will have more energy for other things. A. B. Curtiss

Dear Y,

Have been following your most recent posts, but have been uncertain of how or what I could contribute.

Just decided to chime in to let you know I hope you get through this rough patch soon. I am sorry that things have been so difficult lately. I know you are a very bright, capable person, & I admire your tenacity. You (really) can do it!

Remember, the darkest light is just before dawn!

Warm regards,

Ginger
