Help

I'm struggling with my emotions, i find myself anxious at work, at college, at church, everywhere. I keep pushing everyone away, i have had a couple of loss this year, and i'm emotional unstable. I feel terrible, and i don't feel like i'm worthy. I have no time to seek for help, my day is busy. During the week i feel numb because of the multiple activities i'm envolved, but when i have time for myself, and when i have time to think, it seems like all my demons comes out.

Hi Mandy! First of all, welcome. This is my second day being on here and I am already feeling the love. I am also a working college student and on top of everything life chucks at you, it is so hard to get through sometimes. Feeling numb can be very dangerous - what helped me was doing what I loved and treating myself to my favorite food, soft blankets and a good show to watch. Even going on a walk listening to your favorite tunes helps out - at least it did for me! :) I see you, hang in there and stay strong!

Thank you so much. Today i talked to my parents. We did take into consideration the possibility of me starting to take some anti-depressant. I am fully aware i need help, and i'm trying to do something about it, tomorrow it's going to be my first try. Wish me luck, and thank you for the support, we are in this together, after all nobody is made of steel.

Good luck!! I learned from past experience that it is SO important to do all your research before you start any medication. Will be thinking of you tomorrow. Let us know how it goes!! :)

I agree with Justliving - You say, 'I have no time to seek help,' but actually seeking help is essential, the top priority. Everything else can and must wait. The way you are feeling will make you unproductive and you will have less time as a result. Please, you owe it to yourself to seek help and support. Be kind to yourself and take care,

I know, and in so many ways i'm seeking for help. Just by joining the group it's a huge step for me, in the past i would've never open up. I'm having medicine and i'm trying to book an appointment with the doctor.
