I Don't Know What to Do


I don't know what to do. I, ironically, don't want to do anything either. I feel like I'm just taking up space, i am just taking up space. I don't know what to do.

I am sorry you are feeling this way, but believe me you are not alone. I have had some fairly decent last couple of weeks. I have not been tremendously overwhelmed and I have not been really depressed, thank God. However, I feel like I am just marking time, you know surviving but not living. I think even if someone handed me floor plans on what to do, not sure if I could accomplish anything. All the madness going on in the world on top of the mental illness, just not a good match. I have to keep believing that God will get us thru this madness and we will be happy one day. So hang in there, He has us in the palm of His hand. :)


Maybe exercise?

I got mad at first because I didn't want to. But the satisfaction of taking that out on the pavement was in of itself rewarding!

My brain needs those chemicals now!

So maybe a workout of sorts?

Couldnt agree more! put on a pair of trainers and go for a walk! Forrest Gump style :-) I found talking out loud to myself while walking helped clarify my problems and what to do about them. HTH

You are just as important as everyone else ❤️

Life can have challenges. I think that instead of focusing on what you don't want to do, you should focus on the need of others. Look outside of yourself and focus on helping people. Volunteering is a great way to put things in perspective, homelessness as an example is something that affects people all over the globe. You should reach out to help those in need anyway you can. You can do this!
