Expressing my feelings

It's hard holding back your feelings like it just puts me in a very depressing mood and that is why I come here to vent. Every time I'm having a good time somehow my brain gets the best of me and I get depressed. Life is so complicated and I don't even know what to do. I try to be me but I just can't help thinking about my health all the time... Plus these panick attacks are killing me... My depression has gotten so bad that I cry :(

  • Hi,

    I'm so sorry to hear this, I hope we can deal with this together as I have some similarities in the situation to you.

    However you mentioned health problems, are these physical or mental health problems?

    I'm glad you've found this website as it's very good for venting and generally you get support from lots of others.

    Is there anything in particular you would like to talk about?

    Also, do you know any techniques for panic attacks and methods for dealing with depression? If so what have you tried? I wonder if there is anything I can suggest for you.

    Please let me know how you are and I really hope that you are feeling better soon. It may feel like such a tough journey now but I've been told depression is curable :)

    Take care and have a nice evening,



  • I don't know I'm just scared to get cancer, AIDS, or anything

    Like that. To calm myself I try the breathing method or a hot shower or music but it calms me down for 5 mins then I start to panic all over again... :(

  • Sounds really scary for you :( would you like to say what makes you think these things? I completely understand if you don't want to say.

    This might sound a bit different but have you thought of meditation? There is a good app called headspace and lots of guided meditations on YouTube. Meditation is being hugely encouraged for health at the moment by many and is much more common than you may think.

    There is also a good self referral counselling service that you may feel helps you called italk which is all done over the phone.

    Have you thought of doing excercise? Maybe something like going for walk or run or cycle may help.

    If none of these help you may want to visit your GP and ask for anti depressants, they make life much easier when you are on them.

  • I have a hard time with feelings expressing my feelings too or having someone to vent to because i sound like a broken record.

  • You might consider counseling and meds. This will help you change your thoughts and attitude to be more positive. Talk to your doctor and tell him everything. Don't hide anything. If you hide things from your doctor/counselor, you will never be healed. Don't be embarrassed. Everybody is struggling with something; anxiety, depression, cancer, bad heart, finances, loss, homelessness, etc. As you take meds and get counseling, focus on others and things you are good at. Thinking of others will take your mind off you. So many people could use a smile, someone to talk to, some help at home, help with homework. We are here to support you as you work to heal but you have to do the work. Not easy. You will have good moments and bad moments but work through them.
