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 .
