Whats up with me?
Ok, here goes .... I wake up every morning, drag myself out of bed, because I have to go to work. I hate the job (its me, not them) because I feel life is so bloody boring. Nothing excites me any more, not even the new house we moved into 2 weeks ago, as we are already having problems with the neighbours.

I feel like a zombi, get up, go to work, eat, sleep. Get up, go to work, eat, sleep. I only feel slightly depressed, as a full on depresseion is too much trouble. Even breathing is too much trouble. I used to always strive to have this great career and dreamt about going up the corporate ladder, but this has all stopped. I literally only work because it brings in money for food and a home. Why can't I enjoy life?

Several possibilities arise, including Depression, and negative thinking habits ; both could do well with CBT style counselling, and possibly some antidepressant medication. Sounds like a major element is disappointment at not holding the job you'd hoped to have by this stage in life.
Get active --- get hobbies you find interesting and challenging --- and get involved in some charitable / NGO work to see what life is really like for people less well-off than you, and to be able to fel that yopu're doing something actually worthwhile
