From high to low in a few hours!

So I finished a uni assignment and went to bed feeling good. I had a few good dreams thinking of when I was travelling, then when I woke up and started thinking about uni. and work and the real world, I became very low all of a sudden. Sitting here somewhat paralysed and don’t know what to do because again, I don’t feel like doing anything. The negative mood is so low I felt like giving up on uni and I kept telling myself that i’m a failure and I should give up before I really fail and waste thousands of pounds.

I wish these negative thoughts never surfaced and I could just get on with life like a normal person. Negative thoughts are so unhealthy. Very debilitating and most people around me just don’t get how much if affects me. In fact I don’t think any real world person I know understands what I am going through!😞

Hope you all have a good day! Hopefully no one has last minute shopping to do!

perhaps this post might help you understand a bit how the negative thoughts are working, and why they turn into vicious circles, and help you find a different way of reacting to them

Hugs! Me too! I have to stop myself from turning the negative thoughts into a vicious cycle too! I just started compassion talk and mindfulness exercise...Be kind to yourself....you are special and precious and folks here really understand! My friends who never had these debilitating symptoms really cannot understand but I know it's not that they don't care...just dunno how we feel 😇
