I feel so depressed and hopeless. Does anyone ever feel like they aren't going to survive an episode because they simply can't handle it anymore?

    Yes, quite a bit. I hate the hopeless feeling. You aren’t alone. Message anytime

    Yes! I feel that way today but I also have PMS and that just makes everything a million times worse!

      what scares me is that I am having my birth control removed today. It will be my first cycle in almost 2.5 years! I am also a little excited though because I feel like between the hormones and the worry that it keeps moving out of place, there will be less stress and anxiety.

        if I don't have another cycle again it would be a true blessing! But unfortunately is not my reality. Since I got COVID I get my period 2 times a month sometimes.

    I hear you. The last few days in particular have been hard for me to the point that my husband has pinned me down so I wouldn't hurt myself.

    Yup. There are days where I'm not wanting to die, I just want to not exist. I'm lucky to have a very supportive husband and friend group.

      same here, there are days when I don’t want to exist but never made any plans for self harm. I also have supportive family

      girl I would not put up with that! I tell him to get out. For me that's unforgivable! You can never look at him the same way. You don't deserve that!!!! I'd make the decision for him and say bye I can do better!!

    I am in the same boat right now. There are some days I just don’t know that I can handle it anymore. It’s like I have to handle it every day, but somedays are just too hard. On those days you just have to do your best to get through it, whatever you have to do to get through the day.

    It sucks that you are having such a tough time. It is important that you have what is called a "safety plan", keeping possible harms locked away and a support system in place for 24 hours. I know it gets really hard for a while, but sticking it out means you can get better.

    Every month I feel like I’m not going to survive. I just want it to be over and I feel like no one understands what I am going through

    Yes every single day i feel like that because my medical file is so deep and i have so many medical issues and i can't find one doctor who will take the time to help me. They just want to drug me up off something that makes me more sick.

    If you're not on antidepressants, get on them. If you are, change which one you're on if its not working.

    I was on them i stop them because it was making my hair fall out and all i did was sleep all day long. I couldn't get through my day or do anything with my children because i would just fall asleep every day everywhere at any giving time.

    Hi life has been sh*tty for me too. I understand depression is real.

  • Raven1822

    Yes. Along with my awesome hormones going crazy I let my emotions take control and I amplified something so small into something huge (at least in my mind it was) to the point that I put in my two week notice and I’m frantically looking for a job now. And feel like I’m never going to get through this. I’ve already set my sights on the worst things that could happen next and that everyone hates me.

    Totally. I recently went to my local ER for help because I didn't trust myself. The social worker and dr decided I was okay to go home, I just needed to set up a safety plan with my husband.
