New here

I've been on this site for a few days now and thought it's about time I said hello.

I've been suffering with depression and anxiety for years now but in the last 2 years I've developed psychotic symptoms along side my depression. I take quite a lot of medications and have just had the dose upped again as I can hardly get out of bed these days. I can't leave the house alone and I feel incredibly lonely and lost. I don't remember the last good day I had but I keep on struggling through but the more I do the more pointless it becomes. I'm afraid I will end up in hospital again as last year I was sectioned. Today's been really tough but maybe tomorrow things will be better. I hope I can get to know some of you here it seems like a very supportive place.

  • Hi borderriever I guess just talking with like minded folk will help my biggest problem at the moment is being so lonely I can go for days without speaking to anyone. Most days it just feels too hard. I have no motivation and lack any energy. I want to get out of this slump but don't know where to start.

  • Hello Mizeki

    The main thing that could help you are diversions, hobbies or activities you really enjoy.

    Do you have any hobbies or something you enjoy doing ?

  • I don't really have any hobbies, I use to enjoy cooking as I did it as a job for many years but cooking for one isn't fun. I use to like cycling too but have no motivation to get out on my bike.

    Whatever you decide if you can try and try any diversion that will help, do it.

    Try Relaxation Technique, Mindfulness, that may help you to control that negativity called Depression
