Hi and welcome! Can you tell us some about what brings you here?

Depression mainly. Confusion.

Depression is my issue as well. It's really hard to deal with. We will support you where we can.

Yes it can be debilitating. Although we have to navigate it daily.

I use to have anxiety issues. Those have gotten better but I think it’s because things are shut down. Depression has hit me hard the last couple of years though.

Yes, current situation is definitely not helping matters. I am bummed that I can't go to my gym (I love to exercise) and do other things. We all just have to make the best from what we have right now. Do you have a hobby? I cross-stitch and read. Lots of people where I live go running and walking as well.

No real hobbies to talk of. I work a lot but am building a business so I don’t really mind.

That's neat. I'm sure that keeps you busy.

Well we will swap then you come live here lol 🤣🤣 yes depression plays havoc with memory and confusion and if you're on any meds for depression or anxiety they can make you even more hazy I find.

Noquarter in reply to Hidden

Yes I am on meds. Taken seemingly everything except benzos. Nothing seems to do the trick. Takes the edge off. That’s where it stops.

Hidden in reply to Noquarter

Yes unfortunately it's down to youreself to do the hard bit meds only "assist" you as you prob already know. Benzos hhhmmmm extremely addictive plays about with you're mood big time wouldn't recommend them they just cause more probs and make you even more hazy and forgetful.

I think no matter where you live things always seem better elsewhere. I see all the beautiful pictures of other places and think how nice it is. The US is beautiful too though. Human nature I believe. We don’t like letting ourselves be happy.

True. Letting ourselves be happy is strange for us because we are not used to us. It's a beautiful island out there we're swimming desperately to reach but we're afraid we'll drown or miss something negative we "need to dwell on". 👍I live in USA too. Its so beautiful and I think it's great to explore other parts of the world. 🌎. What an experience 👍😊🌎 you would have. It's so rainy here today it's pretty nasty.

Actually fairly nice here today. In NC.

Hidden in reply to Noquarter

Yeh I know this is so true "the grass is greener " and so on . I suppose it's learning to cherish what you have and if you're not satisfied with what you have trying to build on that

Seems as though I live life from the side lines. Just a spectator.

Luna_Child in reply to Noquarter

Are you an Introvert like me?

Noquarter
Noquarter in reply to Luna_Child

I have always leaned that way although I can talk to people. I’m sincere.

Hey I saw your post but wasn't sure if you struggle the same way I do

How do you struggle?

Hello. Welcome to our community full of active supportive listeners ready to help whether that be just listening offering ideas on how to cope etc...I am suffering from anxiety, panic attacks & depression. I see a Therapist 1-2x per week and am on medicine seeing a Nurse Practitioner. Lately it's all Telehealth. It helps. I am completely totally honest with my Therapist because that's the only way I'd benefit otherwise it's my loss completely as well as my Nurse Practitioner who dispenses my meds Cymbalta and Klonopin. These help however you've got to put in your fair share of work as in trying some new coping techniques, hobbies, which is basically self care. It's not easy some days my head's buried under the covers and that's where it stays until it starts to wear off in the afternoon. Some days it lasts completely.

If something says something that makes you uncomfortable hit the report button next to your post. Everyone should be pleasant and supportive.

If you need anything please feel free to send me a message.

Once again, welcome! 👍😊🙌
