Can't get motivated to break my Depression...

I currently suffer from Depression, Mood Disorder NOS, Anxiety, PTSD, etc. and am having a huge problem returning to work. I know all the issues I mentioned that I have clearly contribute to my inability to get out of bed and get to work daily. I have had several years of therapy, counselling, meds but I still can't get my self going in the morning. I have missed a ton of work days over the years and my employer has had enough. I've missed the last 2 weeks as well - staying home sleeping. I live alone - I realize that's a huge problem in and of itself. I have 2 kids that are grown adults (I am divorced as well) and they are also tired of my work problems and have started to distance themselves from me. I have 1 close friend - I'm not dating now - and he's also going through turmoil so he's not much help either. I guess the bottom line is that I'm out of options in trying to turn myself around. I'm running out of money and will lose my job if I haven't done so already....

I think my need, and question here is what do I do now??? Obviously it's down to me now. I really have no other family other than my distant kids. I know I have to do the work here. It's my responsibility alone now. Any suggestions on motivation for me, or things I can do to find the motivation to get myself up and to work daily???

Larry ,give yourself some credit .By posting on here you have made a step towards helping yourself .That in of itself deserves a pat on the back You made this step so now you must make the next .You must work towards getting up and getting back into life . Right out small affirmations and post them where you can see them when stuck in bed i.e. You can make it /Its up to you / Get Back into life .
