Low mood

2sara1 profile image

Hi all

I haven’t posted much on here for the past few years but have all of a sudden started to notice my mood becoming really low. I don’t feel anything anymore, I could happily walk out of work and my relationship without care or feeling. I guess I’ve been feeling like this for a while and thought it was ‘normal’ I have a really high pressure job which doesn’t help because I don’t get much time to myself or with my boyfriend. I guess I am looking for advice or just someone to talk to. The thought of counselling is difficult for me at the moment because I am scared of opening up and admittedly crying infront of someone. Stupid I know! I have booked a doctors appointment today for 2 weeks time as when it’s that time of the month I get really low and have really bad thoughts. I know the doctor will put me on anti depressants again but i can’t help but think this is an easy way out and I’m scared of being on them for a long time. But if it will stop me feeling like I am going into self destruct mode and letting depression think I want to break up with my boyfriend and leave my job etc then is it worth it?

Hi 2sara1, it has been a while. What you are feeling does need to be addressed by some therapy and possibly short term medication. When we get into a slump that doesn't allow us to think clearly/rationally, then it's time to send out the troops to help stabilize ourselves. It is not a defeat by any means. You can still use your own tools/methods of getting through but for now, don't allow depression to destroy your life. Reach out for help, it's just a call a way.

We support you in taking care of you first. Life's picture will become more clearer. Stay Strong and Stay Positive sara. You can do this. xx

Thanks. Needed to hear that. It’s just hard to think straight at the moment and not worry about everything!

I know sara, I know....You don't have to do this alone, we are here for you. Remember, one step at a time and it won't be so overwhelming. :) xx

I found it hard to cry in front of people, especially family. I don’t know why i just feel so uncomfortable about it.
