do you think you are lazy?

1

lately I’ve been feeling like a lazy blob.
All I want to do is watch tv.
Sadly, I feel its the only way I can laugh or cry.
When there is silence my mind won’t stop racing.
I never want to go outside, i eat unhealthy..
i blame being anemic or my depression.
but yea, i guess I admit I am lazy

That's not being lazy. Lazy is when you can't walk upstairs and stay downstairs the whole night cause you don't wanna move your position. Eating unhealthy isn't abnormal, so your good

Your depression is flaring up, I'm so sorry for that :( Have you tried a medicine? It's not laziness, it's your brain chemistry, you definitely don't need to blame yourself.

I used to think I was lazy until i realised I just lacked the core motivation to do anything or be happy - ie, depression. The most advice I can give is experiment doing a bunch of things (if you can find the motivation) and see if you enjoy anything. Maybe do something that used to make you happy :)

Depression doesn't make you lazy, it makes you tired. Don't mix them up but don't ever use being tired as an excuse for being lazy, heh!

Your not lazy, you just have nothing to do! We all have those lazy days (sometimes weeks)! The best thing you can do is get out of your comfort zone. Go out, meet people, take a walk, exercise, pick up a new hobby, basically just do anything that will distract your mind!

This sounds very similar to when I'm in my depression - not being able to get out of bed, get dressed, eat, shower, see people, open the curtains etc... These are essential things that everyone needs to be doing. They are fulfilling our basic needs and if we don't do them that means there is something wrong with us. I would suggest seeing you doctor and talking about this. A lot of people mistake this for laziness but it isn't. It's depression.

Maybe you're lazy, maybe you're not. I used to tell my sister that laziness is the key to progress. It's a joke but there's some truth to it. But what you might have is probably TV-itis or something. TV can do that. What if there was a power interruption or some kind of technical problem and you can't watch TV? I'm pretty sure you'll go find something to do. What goes on in your mind when you're not watching TV? Of course there might be depression or something just one of those days. I suppose we all go through that at some point or another.

i understand your position.. it's not being lazy totally.. but i would rather prefer being all by myself and stay home and blame things ob being depressed.. instead of trying to do something productive and worthwhile.. if relates

Yeah that isn't laziness, it's sounds like depression all the way. My personal definition of laziness is when you just go out of your way to avoid difficulties and work because you would rather be doing something fun or relaxing, not because you want to quiet your mind for a while. Take it at your own pace but try to move around a bit to start off. If a doctor has recommended something to help you out, do that first, but try to change up your day a little and see if it helps
