Anxiety and Depression Support

Lost and want to find my way

I have been depressed for 6 months. I can't work , sleep, clean and hate to go outside. I don't grocery shop and look like I have aged 10 years. I have not experienced joy or happiness in a long time.

I have no friends because I have pushed them away. I'm afraid to share my depression with people because I feel like it's a sign of weakness. I I I have no money because I can't work. I have no health care because I don't have a job. I hate myself and I hate my life. I just wanna be happy...

I don't want to live like this. I feel like I'm dying inside.

Hi :) I know that you feel alone but you are not alone. They are people all over the world that feel like you. You do not recognize them because as you, they do not talk about these feelings. I am one of them and I trust that we can come out of this situation even stronger than before. I believe that everything happens for a reason and we will find our way to home.

I would like to share a quote of Frida Kahlo that always helps me when I feel isolated. This is it:

I used to think I was the strangest person in the world

but then I thought, there are so many people in the world, there must be someone just like me who feels bizarre and flawed in the same ways I do. I would imagine her, and imagine that she must be out there thinking of me too. Well, I hope that if you are out there you read this and know that yes, it’s true I’m here, and I’m just as strange as you.

Hi..Im here..you feel this way cause that's what depression does...What will make you happy?..I believe you need to go through your motions...If you can't go grocery shopping, just get up and go..If you dont want to clean, go and clean..do something small to slowly crawl out of this rut..If you have no one to talk to..talk to God..open your heart like you did here in prayer and talk..ask for anything, anything and everything your heart desires..talk..forgive yourself..let your heart bleed out to God..Just get it out..im not a devotee to religion but the five cents i give I get back heaps.. I have no one else either..but God has got me through..im not talking about religion.. just talk to the inner you the greater force.. call it what you want ..its talking to you it knows you so open up and listen to overcome your obstacle to get where you are meant to be..only you can help yourself..never lose hope..Its ok..

I am so sorry you feel this way. I think many people have felt this way (more than you think). Is there one friend from your past that you could reach out to? I would not feel embarrassed about being depressed. It is a medical condition. However, I understand the feeling because I have been there.

Are there any health clinics or local groups you can go to. It sounds like you may need medical help.

At my worst, taking a shower took every ounce of energy but it helped. Planning and doing 1 thing — even if it was going good shopping helped me too.

Hang in there. You are not alone.
