🙆🏾 still WISHING I was a NORMAL GIRL 😢

Trying to ignore the negative thoughts that constantly pop into my head. Trying to breathe to slow my heart rate down but I can't stop worrying...I can't stop the racing thoughts. I have no control today😔 this is so annoying. I wouldn't wish severe depression and anxiety on my worse enemy. I really wish there was a pill I could take to get rid of this. Maybe then I could try to live and possibly love my reflection and who I am. I feel alone. I know people think I'm weird.

Hey,

What is normal anyway? I think we try to be this normal, perfect, flawless people that isn't even real. Even the most successful celebs have issues. I think all of us on this forum, you and anyone who has the courage to voice that they are not perfect, have issues, feel utterly cr*p some days and struggle with life, we are the beautiful and true people. We have the guts to show our true selves rather than try to mimic a ridiculous illusion of an image.

You are most certainly not alone...also not weird. You are an absolutely wonderful human being, unique and important. You have a place and a role in this life and you are needed for that. You just have to find a way to your path. Just like a knife in your gut, you need help with healing. If you feel your mind is racing and you get no peace, you may need some medication for a while to help you get stuff under control and have the energy to work things through. There are so many possible reasons for why you are feeling like this and it takes a doctor to figure out what will help. But none of those reasons make you weird or crazy, your brain is just like any other body part, it can be hurt. Big Hugs x

That just made me cry. Thank you for your thoughtful reply. I go back to my psychiatrist in the morning. I'm on Prozac now but I don't feel much different. I don't cry as much but....

Thanks for your reply. It shows me that maybe somebody truly cares.
