Nothing relaxes me anymore.

I used to feel relaxed when listening to rain patter against my window not anymore. I used to get relaxed by watching my favourite tv shows not anymore. I used to feel relaxed from taking a long hot bath not anymore. Why is this can anyone explain it to me any why I don’t feel myself and will I ever get if back?

Have you seen a professional and been diagnosed with something?

Health anxiety and generalised anxiety with minor depression

I have a major depression and anxiety disorder, which is currently responding well to counseling and meds. Anxiety makes me antsy and that makes it difficult to relax. But you may find other things which work for you. Keep posting and sharing. You’ll get a lot of responses and tips.

Thank you for your help and advice today it means a lot I wish you all the luck in the world overcoming your challenges❤️ Unfortunately I’m to anxious to take meds☹️

I feel the same at the moment but I’m suffering sudden panic disorder / anxiety constantly alongside side effects of medication. Everything is irritating me and I have no tolerance of sound etc

I’m hoping it doesn’t last because tv was my way of relaxing and I’m out of ideas xx

How’s the dogs 🐕

They’re good thanks for asking again but I don’t live with them thankfully but again thanks for asking how are you!

I’m ok thanks no complaints today,how long have you felt like this..are you on any meds

I’ve not really noticed until now but probably a few years I just put it down to getting older so not being as easy to relax but it’s something more insidious going on. I’m not on anything no I’m too afraid to be

do you sleep ok

Intermittently some weeks it’s okay like 2am/3am until 10 11am or 12. Sometimes worse like 4 but not very often

Wow just like me I don't sit still at all morning till night my legs hurt I'm so light headed I'm so weak I can't concentrate. Nothing intrests me I cant have no fun at all. I'm like a headless chicken tbh. A don't no who I am am so sick a don't go out it's been 8 weeks now. It's scary as hell x

Oh no I’m so sorry you are going through this I’m actually very fortunate to be able to sit still but that’s just purely because I don’t want to move because I don’t feel like it.😩 I don’t lay down all day I get up an get dressed and walk around play sports once a week go on dog walks so if I’m given something to do I’ll usually do it but it’s just maybe what happens when you’re unemployed

Have you ever tried listening to Dr Claire Weeks she’s fantastic I’m sure it’ll help you a lot

Hey. I’m new here. I wish there was something I could say to make things better. God certainly did not want us to be sick. I am afraid of meds myself because of the side effects and getting hooked on them and/or getting off of them. I like what you said about that we are still here. We are Gods people. Just pray and lean on Him it does help me. He holds us together anyway. And if you ever say to yourself I don’t know who I am, say I am a child of the living God.
