Some days are harder than others

I feel like I have 2 people living in me... one consumed with depression and unable to cope, much less love a normal life; and another pushing me to at least some what function... I hate who I am and I’m tired of the constant blackness that seems to follow me every where

Hi Liz0325. Welcome to the Anxiety/Depression support group. It's quite common to feel like this. The stronger you is wanting to feel better and move forward each day. My best advice is to set up an appointment with a psychiatrist who may put you on medication that will help with the chemical imbalance in the brain that depression comes from. It's nothing you are doing wrong. You just need that build up of meds that will give you the motivation you are looking for. One step at a time. Keep us updated on how you are doing once you see the doctor. We will be here to support you. :) xx

thank you for your kind words. I have a psychiatrist, and am working on finding the right med. I did go to a counselor, but now it is too expensive to see her weekly, or even at all.

I understand that all too well. It’s a constant battle right? We want to get better so bad but we also feel like crap. No one deserves this. We just have to to keep fighting. It’s hard. It’s challenging. But what else can we do? I’m sorry you’re struggling. Be proud of yourself for fighting though. ❤️

I can understand how you feel I think. I feel like I can’t take care of myself. So I have to push myself. I’m not happy with myself either. I’m going through crap right now and it’s so hard to deal with. But I’m on new meds to try to help me so I’m hoping in time it will help me. I’m sorry I don’t think I’m in the right state of mind to give advise but. I feel for you. I’m sorry your going through a hard time.

It’s so hard, I feel the same many days. I try really hard to side with the person who is pushing me forward. At times I even (out loud) tell the other person to stop! It sometimes helps to suppress their constant nagging to worry or fee anxious. Keep fighting, find many comfort things or people that can you use as a pick me up.
