Hello everyone,

So I am new here.. and I’m looking for help. For a few months now I haven’t been feeling like myself, can barely get any sleep, can barely get out of bed. I had quit my job because of how unhappy I was there but I came to realize i am unhappy with myself, and that’s the reason why i turned to exercising and eating better.. but hasn’t help I’m just wondering how do I get through my days like this, is there a day where i don’t have to worry? I am trying to take it day by day trying to get through it and learn new ways to help myself.

Hello and Welcome Ymendez1!

It sounds like you’re really taking action and trying to help yourself...that’s such a good thing! Your realization as to why you quit your job is also a big step in navigating your way through depression/anxiety. Worrying though, is a bad thing! Changing the way in which you think is so important...exchanging negative thoughts with positive thoughts. Don’t live in the past because it cannot be changed and it ends up fueling depression. Don’t live/worry about the future either because it hasn’t happened yet and ends up fueling anxiety. You will waste precious energy in doing this. Focus on each day alone and only the things in which you have control. Thinking positively and being grateful for all your many blessings is a big plus. Changing your outlook also takes action, practice and vigilance. I believe you’re up to the task! You will be rewarded for your hard work and commitment to improving your mental health! Don’t give up or quit fighting! You can do this! Wishing you all the best!!

I have only slept about 3 hours, but I’m doing ok! I feel a sense of relief and gratitude. I miss him...hard to believe that I’ll never see him again...

Yes. That's hard. But there is no more suffering. You had great love for him and did the right thing.it hurts and will for awhile, but for all the love they give us, we have to give back in the way of peace.

Welcome to you 🌺

Hi ymendez1, I'm about to quit my job or be fired. It's the lack of sleep that's affecting me most I think. Part of me is looking forward to not having to go to work at a place I'm not wanted, but another part of me has great anxiety about being able to support my family. Still, I believe removing oneself from a situation of great stress is the correct first step.

Hello and welcome! I would recommend seeing your physician or counselor (if you have not already). They may be able to provide some additional resources that are helpful. On days that I do not feel like getting up, having someone else waiting for or depending on me helped. Exercise (try with another person to help with this) and journaling were things that helped me.

There are also some great resources out there that might be helpful for you. Have you heard of Lacey Sturm? I would recommend looking into her story( can send you links if you like.) Also, check into depression outreach or ask your counselor if they have any other resources that they recommend. Hope that helps!
