New Here!

Hi everyone, I joined awhile ago, but haven’t had the courage to post yet. So here goes. I’ve had anxiety and depression for a few years now, and I seem to be medication-resistant. I’ve tried everything, and I’ve tried nothing. None of it works. I don’t know what to do next. I feel as though I’m running out of options. I’ve tried natural supplements, I’ve made a lot of lifestyle changes, I’ve spent time in hospital programs. Nothing seems to work. I’m doing a lot better than I was a year ago, but lately it feels like it’s been getting worse. I can’t stop thinking about things that upset me, and I can’t seem to move on from things that happened years ago. I’m glad I’ve made it this far, but every morning I wake up with a horrible feeling in my stomach and it’s extremely hard for me to go about the day without a lot of distraction. Anyways, that turned into a longer rant than I intended. Thanks for reading, if you made it this far :)

Some times we search for answers that seem impossible and beyond our reach. We spend years of our lives in pursuit of a "cure" an escape from the madness. Sometimes a friendly ear helps but often our minds feel like an impenetrable wall no way in no way out. I hope you find some kind of help here even if it's just a Brief escape, a place to catch your breath. If you ever want to talk about anything im always free to listen.

Anytime ❤

Welcome 🤗! Please don't feel bad about allowing negative thoughts to crowd your mind. One of my main issues is OVERTHINKING. You are who and what your mind says you are. I've been repeating "relax" in my mind whenever I get stressed. My body ACTUALLY relaxes. The same energy that creates positive thoughts is also used to create negative thoughts ☺. Speak positivity 😁.

You're welcome 🤗. Try to be patient. Positive thinking takes time ☺.

Welcome! I get this sometimes it gets so overwhelming and thoughts seem to not be able to win over. If I am not careful I will let my thought process totally get away with itself. I have found that the only way I can get past it is changing my focus or repeating something positive (for me that is a verse or two). -Rachel
