Not long woke up, like yesterday feel very low and anxious and feel like i am going to cry, doubt that I will as don't seem to cry any more spent most of my life crying but it stopped but the sadness remains, someone to chat to would be nice, think the loneliness is a root course
Feeling very low today: Not long woke... - Anxiety and Depre...
Hey! Feel free to send me a message anytime I feel this way often too. Those days were u don’t know why and just feeling like hiding under a rock and 😭. I hear you
thank you so much for replying and for your kind words, no one replied to me so spent much of the day reading and replying to other people posts and that made me feel better, seems to be when i first wake up I feel bad but once I am up and focus on other stuff like this site, as I don't go anywhere, it changes my mood a bit
Yea, I’m new here too but everyone has been really nice so far! Keep interacting and making friends. We need it! And yes, keep ur mind busy. When our thoughts get us alone we tend to just cause destruction on ourselves. Do you have any hobbies?
No do not really have any hobbies as a bit financially embarrased at the moment, no job no car no family near by so falling into despair a lot never saw my life going in this direction, my kids live far away, they call a couple of times a week so does my daughter in law which does help.
Do u have a park near your home where you can go for walks and exercise? Exercise helps a ton!
Yes I do go for walks weather permitting looked into walking groups but they are in town and I cant get there, someone close by takes me shopping but do not want to impose to much on them
I’m sure they would love your company! Or maybe a pet would be a nice idea
Sorry to hear you are feeling so bad. We never realise how lonely it's going to be when our kids grow up and leave home.
It's hard when you have no hobbies and let alone no money.
If you could by any way get a little dog, taking it for walks you get to chat to a lot of people...worked for me. Take care you're not alone xxx
Thank you for your support and reply
Aw I know the feeling..empty nester and my hubby is a trucker ...gone all week, only home for 24-36 hrs. a week. Being alone is not for the weak..we must be strong! What is it you like to do? Puzzle, music, read a good book? Keeping busy, even if we have to force ourselves is a very good thing. i love music, makes me happy. Try to finds what makes you happy and go for it, you have nothing to lose..give it a try, I believe you can do it. if you would like to pm me feel free to.
Dump trucks of love, peace, light, joy & hugs for you!
Thank you for the lovely message, not sure anymore what I like doing, think movies and music has always been what I turn to, use to like gardening but not so keen anymore, not sure why
How about get a houseplant? Are you getting any help? I"m sending you my joy today...take it and run with it...
Dump trucks of love, peace, light & hugs!
Being alone and feeling lonely sucks. And then it's even harder because it's just you and your thoughts which can make you feel worse and you don't even know what makes you happy anymore. I think getting outside for a walk is a good idea, even if you don't feel like it. I don't know your situation are you near a community centre or is there some kind of friendship club around? there has been a suggestion of getting a dog, which can make a positive difference as they are wonderful companions provided you are able to keep one. There's usually an adoption fee, maybe your family members could chip in to pay it if they knew it would help with your loneliness?
If being part of this group makes you feel connected keep chatting with us.
Talk to me! I feel lonely and sad most of the time (I try not to be for my own sake) and I think lonely and sad people need eachother haha
If you are up to it, is there a place you can volunteer even one day a week?
I have volunteered at the library and it helped me to be helping others plus I made a few friends there!
Keep coming back here too. There is always someone with whom you can chat.
Just try to keep your mind active. That is one of my keys to staying level. You will have some tough days but they do pass. The goal is to build up the time between the good days and the bad ones.
I understand how the feeling of sadness can remain, and how you feel like you are crying tears so much. I have some resources on counseling if you are interested. Please reply here, or send me a private message. You are loved. Better days are ahead.
