Zero motivation at work, think I'm depressed

I'm fairly ok away from work but have really done bugger all this week. Part of my job is face to face with the public, part is less urgent paperwork stuff. I dread the face to face stuff but I can do it, I just put it on like a performance. I cannot manage to do any of the less urgent stuff though. I am extremely aware of expectations at the moment, and if I feel like I am 'expected' to do something, it makes me want to crawl under the duvet and avoid it. I've just wasted a whole afternoon of having the office to myself and I feel awful about it. Just want to go home, get drunk and cry.

Just after a bit of hand holding really. GP has prescribed Paroxetine 20mg, haven't started yet - will that help with the lethargy and procrastination?

I have felt like that at work before. If it isnt in any other part of your life, are you sure it isnt the job? I moved on and am so much happier now. Life is too short - if you can work elsewhere and feel it will help then dont worry about doing it and seize the day
