At times I feel that way but doesn't everybody? I used to think money would make life happy but it doesn't matter what you have because you can still appreciate a sunset or sunrise, a good book, a beautiful smile, etc., just as much as the next person. The best things in life are free.

You can still chose to participate in things even if you are down. Actually, I often think that I should do the opposite of what I feel at that time. For example, have you ever been so tired that you don't want to exercise at all? But once you get moving you realize that you were very glad you did. It is like that with a lot of things.

For me, I am my own worst enemy because I try and talk myself out of things instead of going with my gut. Anxiety is my big problem with pure "O" ocd. When I just ignore or laugh at some of my thoughts I proceed much easier.

I know we all just don't want to struggle but we all do. Everyone is fighting some type of battle. A very good OCD doctor said "We are all fu**ing nuts." Once I realized that I am human I felt better.

So, if you can get out and move. Exercise is great. Even just walking! Do little things for yourself and then be proud of yourself. Eat something healthy and say "that was good for me" and if you eat something not so healthy say "it won't kill me, don't sweat it." What I am getting at is give youself a break and use positive reinforcement even if you do something not so great. We are all human, accept it. But don't give up, keep trying.
