Needing help

I don’t have anyone really to talk to about my depression and hope I can get some help/advice here. Today was a tough day. I just don’t know how to get out this cycle.

I have depression too. I just feel really sad every day no matter where I go, but I just talk to someone. After you tell someone, it feels like you don't have to carry the burden of sadness anymore. It will make you feel more comfortable. If you have any problems, just ask me because I have experienced most of them before.

Thank you for your response. I will def try speaking to someone Im close to about it.

Hey gmc . We are here for you. You need to stop thinking and just let it be. Bad things comes but can’t stay forever if you try to be a bit positive and try to look at good things too. Hang in there. I’m here for you. 😘

I’m always here and you can write me a private message when you want.

I’ve been depressed to the point of “wanting it all to end”. Some days it’s horrible but other days, I guarantee there are “other days” that will make you think “I’m so glad I’m alive and experiencing this”.

I’m always here if you want to talk to somebody. Depression is the worst when you face it alone. Try to go out and take walks - they really help as opposed to staying at home (because depression makes people feel tired).

Try to take it one day at a time and maybe try doing one thing you wish was done and you may feel an accomplishment. I know with depression its difficult. I have high anxiety which depresses me and I stay really busy but when my body tires my mind is still at work. It helps to read other peoples' stories and try to stay hopeful that there are better days ahead. I become scared and feel alone but try to reach out and also help others the best I can. I am glad you reached out and I know you will have better days. Sorry to hear this day was tough. It was for me as well.

I've tried different things, this might work for you? But I think of everyday could be my last. Iam 63 so who knows? I've been having some rough days to where I don't eat for days at a time. This would only things worse. So when I feel it coming I tell myself when's my last day? So not spending my days filled with anxiety.

One thing you can try is to stand with your feet wide apart and pur your arms in the air, one above each side of your head high into the air. This is a power stance I saw demonstrated once. It has worked for me and maybe will work for you. The idea is to have your body take up as much room as it can.
