Lost

Hi. I'm nervous to be on here because I'm scared to be vulnerable. I suffer from ptsd, depression, anxiety, and bipolar. Um... I'm just lost, feel like no one cares-- especially the ones you want to the most. Just wondering if anyone else feels like this. I've done everything. Psychiatrist, therapist, meds, and nothing is changing.

hi over 4 years now.

My first day and my first post is to you. So you have me so far. You are not alone. I’ve been depressed for so long and I’m so tired. But of course can’t sleep. Doing meds, worry constantly and feel like something is standing on my chest continually. I’m willing to try anything which is why I’m here. Keep reaching out, you are not alone.

I'm trying. Just seems like nothing is helping and people tell me not to give up but they don't know what it's like. I've had suicidal thoughts and I just get called selfish even though I'm reaching for help

It takes courage to reach out for help. And all people honestly don't know what it's like to be 100% in your shoes and have those thoughts. But we are here for you and to listen to you because might have had similar experiences due to what we all have in common, which is living with anxiety and depression.

You made a post that's awesome. I've only been here a few weeks and I haven't posted. So, good for you.

I have ptsd anxiety and depression. It's not an easy road.

Have you done EMDR? Google it if you aren't familiar with it. It's hard to explain. It's for ptsd. I've done it, it's helpful.

Wishing you the best of luck.

I think we have all been in that situation before where we want our loved ones to just know what we need when we need it but most times they just don't know how to help. I'm glad that you have joined here as it is a safe place and people will help you along the way. People who understand and care. I think you will like it here.

Sometimes if I didn't feel lost, I'd feel nothing at all. So yeah, it's not so bad being lost. By definition, it means you can be found.

Now you’re found! We care. Yes everything you feel is part of our club. The more you pull it out the better you’ll feel. Ptsd is a liar. You can’t be in your brain alone. I’m so proud of you for reaching out. Just keep reading the posts and talking about your feelings. I started just by encouraging others on another forum. Now I talk about everything. One has to lose the emotion attached to the event. I did it by talking it out of my system. Best of luck to you and know that you are important.
