I don’t see things getting better... don’t know how

I’m so depressed, nothing helps much. I’m so lonely, I have no one. Days are meaningless, difficult to dredge on like this, going through the motions everyday. I’m sorry to keep posting these complaints. There are lot of people on this site much worse off than me. I’m sad and numb and lonely and hopeless all at the same time. I have so many important things to do, things with deadlines, but I don’t feel like it, it all feels meaningless, and I’m tired. Anything I do to try and lift my mood is temporary, the depression is still there.

Amit, sorry to hear that, I had hoped that our chat lines would help you be less bored. I do have one suggestion though. I did this when I was bored. I started helping people. First, I sought out people that obviously needed the type of help I was knowledgeable in. Then I joined this site so I could help even more people. I actually got so caught up in trying to help people, it overwhelmed me. I'm not suggesting that but, I'll bet you could take your expertise and use it to help less fortunate people. Otherwise, Sue and I will pray for you to find peace and meaning your life. Okay?

Thank you John. Yes, the chat lines do help a lot. Yes I come on the site to help others and reply to their posts when I’m feeling down and that does help as well. Thanks for the support.

I understand how you feel. That's depression alright. Don't be sorry for expressing your pain... The more you keep it inside, the more it will hurt you. Here, in what I hope is a safe place, you have the opportunity to find supportive people to tell you that you are not alone.

I know how you feel so much! Most of us have been there. It’s very hard I know but I promise you, IT DOES GET BETTER! And I’m not just saying that..I am recovering from my anxiety and depression and the best thing to do is not to just sit around and do nothing, go outside for maybe 10-15 minutes get some sunlight and fresh air and you will feel a little better :) you aren’t alone even though I know the depression makes you feel that way, you really aren’t. We all are here for you, you are loved and you are safe!

You are not alone lady, you can overcome this, be strong, it is in you, these feelings are only mental, and they trigger chemicals in us that make us feel worse. There is truth in what they say in regards to someone who is happy, that it also releases a chemical inside you that affects your health. When we are unhappy it strangely also messes with your health. So please do find things that make you enjoy life, even simple things, take time to think of how a moment makes you feel. Just don't give up, you are loved.

I have my downs and then I have my up! They are less frequent but they happen. I was able to go to work only because I decided to create “safety” in my mind. I said to myself all the “if” and I taught myself that there is little to worry, like really be afraid of. Humiliation is always painful. So is: ostracism! The positive mindset helps, I pasted really dark message few days ago and then immediately thought - thinking negatively won’t change anything, I decided to delete this message and set my mind for “the glass half full!”. The poster from the Dyer book helped me move ! Look him up and read his book. Learn about coping skills. And when you loose hope - seek support, don’t stay alone.

Your days are not meaningless, you have been providing valuable support and advice on here. We are all as important as you each other. Nobody is more than or less than.

Try sitting in a room, and breathe. Sometimes I rub the pressure points in my hands and feet. It helps me to relax a little.

I care if it helps. I’m nobody special, but I understand depression and pain. Thank you for reaching out. I’m hurting as well-so many people are. There are better days ahead you can believe in your heart. You are a beautiful person inside. Please be good to yourself and believe that other people care.

The BHot stands for Broken Heart of tears-so I understand how your heart is broken and feels like we’re drowning in our tears. Think of the song “let the sunshine-let the sunshine in, the sun-shine in.”

I feel how you do. My heart hurts for you just like it hurts for myself, but you have to let people love you and love those who are needing your love. I have no body as well. My dog, that’s really all. I don’t think my spouse cares, but I keep trying to love those around me. Most the time I just get kicked down for being down. I’m sorry that you’re hurting, people all over the world are, we can still reach out to each other while there is so much darkness in this world we can let our light shine. We’re all human beings. We need to be-in the present. Let peace and light fill your broken heart. My tears are not just for myself, I feel what you feel as well. Because we both share our burdens it makes our hearts a bit lighter.

Hi Amit, I’m so glad to hear that you are feeling much better. Yes, it is the way things go. We certainly don’t ask for it.

It can be really useful to write a few lines about how you are feeling now. A kind of letter to yourself. If you find yourself in depression or anxiety you can then read it and it may help take some off the edge of the “truth” that depression and anxiety try to sell us.

I’m feeling good, thank you. Just got back from a group mindfulness session. I find mindfulness very helpful in so many areas of my life.

Wishing you all the best always 😀

I think that’s a great idea, I’ve been thinking of keeping a journal or a positivity journal. Yes, I like mindfulness, need to practice more. I read some books by Thich Nhat Hanh that emphasize mindfulness.
