Nothing seems to help

I’m getting to the end of trying anymore because nothing I do seems to help and I don’t know what else I can do. I post on here about how I’m feeling and get good feedback but I’m rarely able to put it into practice. I am on medication and see a psychiatrist. I go to counseling weekly and that doesn’t seem to help much anymore. I talk to family and friends about how I’m feeling but there’s not much they can do. I struggle with this anxiety and depression everyday and I just don’t know what to do anymore. I feel so alone and I don’t enjoy anything in my life. I just exist in this dark world of mine and I don’t like it. I’m possibly going to do TMS which is supposed to help with depression but I’m pretty skeptical that it will work. All I do in a day is eat, shower and watch tv. I’m bored all the time and I don’t have anything to do each day. I’m on disability for bipolar disorder and I’m not sure I’m ever going to be capable of working again. I don’t want to kill myself which is good but I’m waiting for those feelings to begin since I’m so miserable. The truth is, I want to live a happy and productive life but right now I’m absolutely miserable and hate my life.

Jp...have you heard of "neuro - plasticity"?

The way I understand it is...our brains can change and improve

and re-wire themselves.

Have you heard the phrase "fake it till you make it?

This term means...act a certain way...(especially when you don't want to)..and eventually your brain will follow suit and think the way you act.

That's what I'm working on.

Give it a try !

That is so true. Now that I think about it I used this method to over come agoraphobia. I didn’t know it at the time but this is what I did.

Hey jpsmith

I'm sorry your feeling this way right now. I understand how you feel I'm going through some of the same feelings. My life has been work home eat sleep repeat. I don't have many friends. Most of them don't even know what I'm going through. (They live in another state) I've lost interest in everything really. I'm hoping I can find some passion for something. Anything to get me going again. Haven't found it yet. I pray and have faith that one day I'll find it. I feel alone alot to. I'm grateful for the people here. So I can vent and not keep things in all the time.

Continue to fight and do what your doing. Seeing your therapist talking to your family and us here. Your not alone even though it may feel like it. We all have a purpose on this earth. I believe that. It'll show up at some point in our lives on its terms. We just have to continue searching for it.

I hope things turn around for you soon. Hugs.

I started TMS this week!! I say GO FOR It! Do you want me to tell you more about it? The success rates and stories are incredible. And you sound like an excellent candidate. If you’ve tried several medications, doctors and anything else, insurance will accept you. Let me know! I wouldn’t mind at all ☺️

You can always volunteer and help someone less fortunate than yourself. That would be something positive in your life to help you feel better about yourself. Put your good thoughts into action and stop watching so much TV! You have the power to help yourself, you’re just not exercising it. Start dwelling on what you’re grateful for and its possibilities. You have to change the way you think to climb out. Wishing you peace of mind...🌷🙂🌷
