A persistent researcher of my mental wellbeing

Hello. I’m 30 y.o female. I’ve had my low mood sometimes but i never quite classify them as depression or anything. I would plainly put them as grief over the passing of loved ones or a reversed culture shock. About a year ago this changes. I persistently feel bad about myself and how I carry myself at my new workplace and my long distant relationships. Grief and reverse culture shock just not quite cut it. I did the DASS test and also Beck Depression test only to discover I have have Severe depression and in need of professional opinion.

The good medical help is quite costly so I tried everything to feel positive again. I enrolled in a psychology class online just to learn about mental health and also Reiki for mindfulness guide. I also tried all the wellness app such as Wysa chatbot and Catch it for self CBT. I also have the Rooster Buddy app for wellness prompt. It felt good that i don’t have to spend money on those but it feels lonely not having anyone to communicate with.

So here I am. Gathering insights and courage to perhaps one day, seek professional help with enough money .

I think you might find some support at drleaf.com. She has a 21 day Detox program that she uses herself as does her whole family. I hope to do it sometime this year as well.

Thank u! I opened the page but is yet to find the program. Last year i subscribed to a 30 day challenge mailing list but i didn’t quite follow through. Everything seems like a chore and i lost interest in the middle of it (call it lazy, but i genuinely lost interest in so many things.)

This year i keep a journal. A bullet journal. I need to run away from my usual lengthy wordy journal that ends up having the same content - the never ending rumination.

Hopefully i can utilise it to keep track of detox program too.

Hi Mimiqt,

Welcome to your forum and the New Year 2018 :)

Mental health issues sometimes respond to self help but if not then a visit to your doctor is required, even if it is get a baseline measurement. A growing number of primary care providers have an interest in mental health. It pays to ask.

If you can let us know where you live, forum users (in the UK, USA or internationally) can often provide hints on how to access free/low cost mental health care nearby.
