I’m tired of life

Does anybody else ever feel this way? I have no friends except for the people I work with. What if something goes wrong and I need help? How can I go on living this life? I’ve wasted so many years. I’m sad and I’m scared.

Hi Shutterbug65. It´s ok what you are feeling, but please know that you are not alone. Do not focus on the past, take it step by step and try to live in the moment because the future is just unknown. It maybe sounds cheesy but that is what i figure out works best for me.

I promise it gets better, but you have to do the work (therapist, medicines, etc)... baby steps.

Here for you.

A friend.

unfortunately there is no quick fix to your situation and talking about it does help!

Thank you. I constantly ruminate about the past because that’s when I was happy and I knew I had time on my side. I’ve lost so many beautiful people, and slowly over time I’ve become more alone. I don’t see my life getting any better. I’m horrible when it comes to doing the work and trying to do things to better myself. And I’m getting tired of the meds. I just don’t want to fight anymore. Some people just don’t make it. But I’m not there yet.

Thank you for your reply.

I don’t know what the answer is. I’m afraid of facing the rest of my life alone.

I focus a lot on the past because that’s when I was happiest. Now my life is empty and I have no one to share it with. No friends or close family. Just a cat.

Hello friend...wasted so many years..I I am unable to lead the life of a general person..these are the feelings I have also gone through...there is no need to worry....everything will be alright soon...

The most important thing if you want to change yourself is to accept the same....the half of the battle is won when you decide to change yourself...

Ask yourself what you want to be...what you have...if you are not sure about this...meet a good friend..everybody has that good friend who listens to him and provides sound advice...if things don't work...meet a therapist...many hugs and hope you get well soon

I don’t have that good friend. I don’t have any friends. There is no one I can turn to and I done this to myself. I have friends at work but they all have their own lives outside of work.

Then it is good to see a professional therapist....also if you donot want to visit a therapist, do it yourself...internet can help you a lot in this... I was suffering from social phobia (now also have some issues).. I identified it by reading online articles...I am currently reading a book on CBT to get off anxiety...and it is helping me...

Actually we are mentally upset thinking about things that donot even exist...it's necessary to understand the game of misunderstanding that we create in our minds by ourself...we need to win the battle from inside then go for winning the outside battle...hope this will help you....for any help..you can pm

I know this feeling very well. I wasted and I keep wasting more. I don’t have any hope. What I do everyday is just faking living and waiting for the end.

I think it’s all chemistry. They say it can be helped. Try!

That’s exactly how I feel as well. I am hoping it can be changed but its hard to imagine that sometimes. I will try though.

Best of luck to you too.

I keep hoping things will change on there own. That one day soon I won’t wake up anxious and feel like I’ve wasted my life. All I do is worry and it takes so much out of me.

But we must keep going on, I know there is an answer out there, if only I could hear it. I need support.

Thank you

Yep that’s how my day goes. I’m simply existing. I’m not sure how much more I can take. The weekends are the most difficult because even though I don’t have a great job atleast I’m around people during the week. I’m just so very sad and scared.

I wish I was strong. I’m always thinking back to how happy I used to be. And now my life is filled with so many problems, I just can’t seem to handle things anymore. And the problems I have are caused by me. I was warned years ago that this is how my life would turn out.

Thanks. My anxiety only seems to get worse. I look and feel terrible. So much time has gone by and I can’t understand why I’m like this when I know so many others in this world have it so much worse. But I have financial issues that I won’t get into but it consumes my thoughts and I worry about what will happen. I wish I did things differently years ago. If I only listened.

Hi shutterbug - there are special help lines and contacts for people in debt. These are government linked. Step debt is a good website as you can explain your problem and gain information on how to pay off your debts in small amounts.

I understand how you feel with the lovely people you have lost. You are lucky to have work mates and colleagues. As for medication may be it needs changing as sometimes depression worsens after being on the same drug for some time. I do hope you get the right help. Your pharmacist may be able to help you with your drugs and the effect they are having you. They have in depth knowledge of drugs which GPs and Psychiatrists may not have especially with interactions.
