Me too. You aren’t alone. Reading your post made think I should find a doctor who specializes in anxiety. I now realize I can’t just wish it away. It is debilitating. It is seemingly very treatable. I hope you find peace. I am sure you are loved and your inner circle of people want to see you content and enjoying life as much as you do.

I promise you are not worthless. We are all here for a specific reason. Do you have family and friends in your life? I bet they don't think you're worthless. I sure don't think you're worthless. The rest of the people on this site don't think that either! Tamka, you just have to find your purpose. Look at your hobbies, ineterests and skills. Find something you can use to help others. You will find that you feel a lot more purposeful once you do. I have graduated from just answering people's post and motivating them to also writing poems and song lyric poems for posting on the site. Do you write? We could always use 1 more person in our group. Our secondary purpose is as a support group for our small group of members which currently has 7 people but could house up to 10! We also have just started skyping. Group video chats might be in our near furture. We found a reason to get up each morning and I'm willing to bet you can too!

Have you every considered that you might be really angry about something, and that the depression and negative self talk is from that?

There is always a core belief that sets up that voice that keeps telling us all the bad stuff.

A lot of times you are actually re playing what someone else said to you from years ago.

Hope you are feeling better now.

BINGO, go with this............IF this is your core belief , you have to get really mad, and admit this to yourself, hit the shower for the "ugly cry", and ACCEPT how you feel about this, Accept how it was not fair, you didn't deserve it, and Accept ( like Clair Weeks teaches us about anxiety) and be OK with the fact, the "little you" was strong and got you through it!

and look at that little person, and say, "thank you" for pulling me though it, and love her, and hold her and protect her.

And when tomorrow comes, be proud that you made her proud of who you have become!

I am so sorry. You sound so kind. Just a thought, have you had full blood panel and allergy testing done recently? Thyroid? Epstein Bar? Food allergies? Vitamin D deficiency?? Or other things like that? You don’t need to answer. This was just my fleeting thought. I totally relate to anxiety and depression but maybe something else is triggering it for you. Sometimes the tests are less expensive through a naturopath. If you find anything curious you can always share lab work with your doctor. Sorry if that is annoying. I am just finally starting to do all of this myself. I hope you get some peace.

Sorry you are feeling this way. You are certainly not alone. Our thoughts often make us so much harder on ourselves than we need to be and I totally empathize. Praying for you and all who are struggling!

Wow, I am so sorry to hear that. Don’t ever feel bad about your faith. I think it’s so important to have a strong set of beliefs and mine is Christianity. I still struggle like everyone else here. I also understand the need for this site to be inclusive and respectful of all belief systems- it’s a great community. Feel free to message me anytime you need to or if you want to share a bible verse or anything and I will do the same! 💜

So sorry you’re having an especially tough time right now. Do you have a good therapist? I’m currently getting inpatient treatment. You were I believe the first to welcome me to this site this week, and you really lifted me up I wish I could do the same for you right now. Hang in there please. I can’t believe an administrator harassed you about religion. That seems so wrong. I will pray for you now

When I made the decision to make happiness my No. 1 priority every day,

I became aware of a whole new world of possibilities.

Healthier choices instantly presented themselves.

I learned how to make myself feel better when times were tough,

simply by shifting my thoughts and focusing on something that would lift my spirits.

I began to create habits and develop mindsets that enabled me to live more in the moment and enjoy myself during the process.

That doesn’t mean that I’m happy 24/7. I was well aware there would always be challenges.

My point is that you can experience unease, sadness and pain at times and still be happy overall.

Your overall happiness is determined by what you choose to focus on in the world from day to day. That’s the key.

I went to my GP over a month ago and he said he'd set up a safe guard meeting as I'm having post stolen and phone calls made by the person I live with. A month later nothing. My Dr no longer answers my texts and I'm wondering if I should change Drs so that's what's getting me down at the mo

Thank you. Therapy hasn't been suggested for me. I think I'll have to look into changing doctors, although this isn't how I wanted it at all. Peace to you x
