I have been through a lot in life too, which helps me to be able to empathize with situations, thoughts and feelings that we have. Sometimes, it's not easy just being human.

Sometimes you just have to drag yourself to the doctors and get help. Asking a friend or family member can help. It may also help to break it down in to little steps: what exactly do you need to do to go get help? Step one: find the doctors phone numbers. 2: find your phone and calendar. 3: call and set up an appointment 4: arrange transportation for that day... etc. Take it one step at a time and inch your way there. If needed, give yourself rewards for each/some step(s) and definitely work on speaking positively to yourself for every step you take. :) I wish you the best.

In my personal experience, I found seeking help to be helpful. I understand it may not be for everyone though I would encourage you to seek it since I do care for your well-being. I think it is important to care for your health and I also found things such as writing in a journal or practicing my hobbies to be beneficial. Cheers!

First you start out slowly. Try to do a 5-10 minute task each day till you get used to that. Then add to those couple of minutes each day, try maybe walking around the house to pick up a couple of pieces of trash. Continue adding then every day or every two days!

If your too exhausted and tired, try helping someone else or supporting a cause. Ive learned form past experiences, that it helps you and gives you strength to look at your own problems and seek help.

You aren't alone! Even if you are, you can always think to yourself. If people are letting you down, just know that this is your own life. It isn't your friends, or your families, or the bullies.

What about getting someone to come to you? Or, you can always speak to a close friend/family member about what is going on and they can try and find the help for you. :)

try changing your routine. sometimes doing something new and a change is what you need. Sleep could help but you can also be oversleeping.

Don't worry about feeling exhausted because you are always welcome to this site to talk/vent your problems. Also, some hotlines (not only for suicide) can help.

DIY: Do it yourself. You may not think you're strong enough, but if you wake up every morning and go to work, school, wherever, enduring the pain and hardships and the feelings (or lack thereof), then you are strong enough to motivate yourself to become better. Make time for yourself before anyone else :)

Hello, I will tell you my own experience: I have had depression for years, I did self-harm, I was tired of everything and I just didn't want things get better, but then my life changed dramatically. Everything will be fine, you have to wait, and seek help. You can tell your friends, your parents, your teachers at school... Anyone will help you, but you can't just give up, you mustn't throw in the towel, because you're stronger than all your problems, and some day your life will chage for the better. If you need someone to talk to, listeners from 7 Cups of Tea will be here to help you with everything we can. Stay strong sweetie!

Figure out the best single place to seek help, then save up your energy and make a big effort. When you're there, tell them you're always too tired to ask for help in other places and find out if you can get someone to help you with everything, not just one thing.

Attempt to talk to someone that you trust that can motivate, assist and help you seek further help such as reaching a hotline or contacting professional advice such as a therapist.

You can dial a helpline that can assist you. There are home doctors that can come to you, and you can seek counselling online.

Possibly try sleeping more at night. Maybe if you aren't sleeping, you can try sleeping medicine. I think that eating more energizing foods can also help.

7 Cups is a good place to start. When you feel too exhausted to go out or to research a doctor, coming here for support is convenient and easy. Maybe, with more support and encouragement, you will be more motivated to find a doctor or counselor. Plus, there are counselors here as well.

Well being on here is a good start. You know you need help and being here maybe you can find the support to speak to professionals

Talk to someone over the phone that you can trust. Don't over think things and take a few deep breaths and try to relax.

If you are always tired, take a nap. As simple as that might sound, it sure works. Taking those extra hours of sleep will definitely make you feel better. If this does not help, either try it for a longer time and/or seek professional help.

learning to find not tiny spark that will help you to motivate to seek help finding those I can relate and connect to what you are going through finding someone with and uplifted personality showing you that they are willing to listen and to help

You can try telling your family or friend to arrange help for you. It’s really important to get help. If you don’t ask for help you’ll continue staying exhausted and tired.

Well if your tired and your too exhausted to seek help I would say then stay home and do some meditation and listen to soft music. Music can calm the soul down and make you focus better on the problems that you are having being tired and exhausted. Last thing you can do is tell yourself to go to bed early and get up feeling refreshed and then get yourself to a place that can really help you when you got the proper sleep. Really in the end it is about taking it easy and really listening to your body mind and soul.
