Hello

I am new. I came across this sight and decided to sign up after a lot of self debate. I'm not sure I belong here. I haven't been diagnosed or anything. I don't know how to explain or label my feelings. I'm hoping that someone will read this anyway. I have been in a "mood" for a long time. For awhile it went away and I felt normal/happier, but recently the "mood" came back. When I'm in my "mood" I usually cry for no reason, I think back to everything that's happened in my life so far, and think about my goals in life & how I'm not doing enough to fulfill them. I know I'm not supposed to, but I've googled and read many things on anxiety disorders, depression, etc.

Hello,

I know how you're feeling. I look at my life everyday and just tell myself how I'm not where I need or want to be. I am here if you ever need to talk about things. I'm here in hopes that I can see similar stories to mine and find a self coping method to this. Hopefully the self downing and my "strange" feeling will go away soon, along with yours !

I feel the same way I doubt my abilities and don't think I'm where I should be in life.

Everyone is different. There is no should about what we should do in life although it often feels like that because of the society we live in. Accept your path is yours alone. There are some things you will do better than others and some you will not it doesn't mean you are failing or worse, just different.

It can be helpful to use google to find out what may be wrong as it helps us get support (like from us!)

If you think it's depression it's worth trying out some self help things like exercising, eating healthy food, trying out meditation or using a cbt app/workbook to see if they help.

If you think it's more than you can deal wi on your own talk to your GP or local IAPT service who can give you advice and support.

Hi there are some depression tests you can do online if you google them. They might give you a guide. If you think you are suffering from depression then the doctor is the best person to see. x

Could it be that your mood is signaling something needs to change? I go through that.
