I’m having another anxiety riddled morning. I just HATE the mornings. I know I’m to find things to do to occupy my time and my mind, but I’m so unmotivated and at a loss as what to do. It has been way too hot for walks and anything that costs money is out of the question. So I sit in a haze in front of the TV waiting for this horrid feeling to pass so I can function again. I just want to sleep until the storm in my brain has calmed.
Need Some Positivity : I’m having... - Anxiety and Depre...
I feel like I am reading my own words! I feel that way too. I dread going to sleep at night because I know the mornings are going to be full of anxiety and plopping myself in front of the tv all day. I don’t work and I fear leaving the house. Always remember it is NOT laziness. It’s a symptom of mental illness. I’m sorry you’re struggling today. I’m here if you want to talk more!
Thank you all so much! Knowing I’m not alone is huge. Sharing your like experiences with me makes me feel not so abnormal and alienated from the world. I am so sick of this feeling. It’s like I have a couple of good days and then I crash. I just want to feel better and it’s taking longer than it ever has to bounce back. I’ve been through this before but don’t recall it taking this long or feeling this horrible. Usually once I’m back on my meds and leveled out, I just get better from there. I know it’s only been 2 weeks and SSRIs can take 4-6 weeks to reach full benefit, but I’m so done with this helpless sick feeling of dread and doom. I want to enjoy life not fear it. I want to know I’m going to be okay and not hide in my bedroom or living room until night when I do feel better. Sigh... I have hope and that’s what keeps me holding on during these dark times.
