Today was bad


Today was a really bad day mentally, I had no energy or motivation to do anything and I wasted all day in bed crying or on the phone. It was 7:30 when I woke up and I didn’t even get up once. I didn’t eat, didn’t brush my teeth, shower. You know? Normal things. I wish one day I could just wake up and feel ok without depression or anxiety.

I understand. I'm sorry things are so difficult right now. Have you been feeling like this for long and do you have someone you trust you can reach out to for more support? Do you have a Therapist? If not I suggest getting one and having them point you in the direction of someone who can prescribe medicine to help. If you choose.

I will say being here in the site helps a lot. These guys have been there too and still struggle. It helps to know you're not alone. Do you have any hobbies that you enjoy doing? Meditation, some stretching, walking around the block or just sitting outside for some sun can help. Nothing that's too much to start.

Are you ok medication? I'm sorry for all the questions but I think it's important.

I have troubles in the morning esp I just keep the covers over my head not wanting to move or think about anything. My Therapist is on vacation returning Monday thankfully.

I hope you feel better soon. I'm always here if you want to message.

My thoughts are with you! 🤗

Thank you!

I’ve been dealing with this now for a few years now, it’s not uncommon for me. I’ll feel this way 4-5 days a week. I do have a therapist but I’ve been avoiding it for a little while now. I can’t bring myself to do anything productive anymore.

When I can build up any energy or motivation to do anything I will write or go out and shoot photos. I’m in the process of switching medication. I don’t Dee Zoloft helps too much

Yeah, life will get rough, sometimes it’s too much too handle. Sometimes I feel like I’m on a sinking boat.

Please give some thought to not avoiding and moving on with your life. Who knows what fabulous things are waiting for you...there are many days I hate to move too. I just want to stay buried under my covers. I feel safe and protected.

I feel like this pretty often. I have my son, so I don't really have a choice but to get up and at least make sure he's taken care of.

I'm sorry you're feeling like that though, I can't give any advice because I haven't really overcome it yet.

But I will say if you wanna vent or just chat, I'm always here. I hope things get better for you.

That’s ok. It’s good that your son is a driving factor for you. A lot of people don’t have motivators like that. Seriously you’re so strong and you’ll overcome it. You’ve got this

Tomorrow is a new day 🌻

Thank you. Hopefully I can muster enough energy to do even just small things.

Yes! Give yourself credit for baby steps.

I’ve been where I didn’t shower.

I mean I bird-bathed it, but depression made my arms feel like dead weights. It’s a Beast.

I understand I have been having issues too with getting out of bed and crying a lot. I've been forcing myself to get up and do one small task, but then I am right back in bed. Any small criticism starts the tears rolling down my cheek.

Yesterday I started adding in a board what I accomplished as far as my task. Since I am unemployed right now and have no insurance, I don't have the money to pay for therapy or visiting my doctor. Although yesterday I decided to call my doctor for a medication review because all I want to do is sleep.

I hope you start to feel better soon.
