Not Myself

1 Reply

I really don't feel like myself these days my mood is so low and I cant seem to get out of it. Everything just irritates me at the moment and I self harmed yesterday which is something I have never done before and it has scared me to be honest. I just feel so worthless and cant help think that everyone would be better of if I wasn't here... I just let everyone down all the time and I hardly ever want to leave my house. I really don't want to feel like this anymore and I know I should go and see my GP but I don't have the courage or strength to do that just now.

Any advice appreciated.

Hello clairem321

First of all may I welcome you to our friendly and supportive forum.

Claire, you are going through a very tough time and everything you describe sounds like you are very depressed and need help and support.

I know you say you do not have the courage or strength to see your GP but I think it is very important that you make an appointment to see your GP so that you can get the help and support you need. Perhaps you can take a trusted friend or a family member with you when you go to see your GP. It may also help to write down what you have posted here and take that with you as it describes so well how you are feeling.

In the meantime, try to be kind to yourself and look after yourself as best you can. Whilst self-harm may feel like a help in the short-term I would never advocate it as a behaviour to adopt. Claire we are always here to listen and support you.
