Lately I’ve just been feeling so overwhelmingly depressed. With everything that’s happening I just feel so helpless, like there’s nothing I can do to change it. Every day goes by and I can’t change anything, I can’t help anyone or do much of anything. All I’m doing is just living another day and even that is so painful
Anxiety (Including GAD)
Its really brave of you to speak up. First of all, proud of you for that. Secondly, have you been talking at least once a day to friends?
Thank you. I don’t really have friends, I used to but they left when things like this kept popping up. There’s my parents but they’re the type to say “you have nothing to be sad about” or something like that. I have a therapist but I just started meeting with him and have only seen him once, but there’s too much to say, is the problem. I just feel like everything and everyone is so important and then there’s me, paralyzed by depression and anxiety and too small to do anything of any value
you're important too.
Yes I feel the same way, you just have to think that in the long run life will be worth it if u work towards it
it just hurts so badly because I feel like I’m doing everything right. Im active, I can’t work because of the anxiety and depression, I’m not really getting exposure with people and anytime I do (errands, etc) they go horribly wrong and I make an absolute fool of myself. How am I supposed to be of any use to anyone when I can barely say hello to a cashier and most days I can barely make it out of my bed and brush my teeth. It just all feels imossible
have you tried journaling? Are you enjoying what u do to stay active?
I'm in a similar place as well and I sometimes spiral with journaling too that's actually why I stopped. I think it's helpful until the pain and distress become too much. I think it's better for moderate depression but I know everyone is different. I'm barely functioning too. I have noticed people get tired of you when you can't give them the happy result. Like ok you are on meds and in therapy why are you still being like this kind of thing. I feel like saying sorry my depression annoyed you! It does though I annoy them. I'm here if you ever want to talk. I'm in lots of pain too.
thank you so much, I totally feel the same way, like my depression is bothering others and I have to apologize but like….it’s bothering me too. I’m always here if you wanna talk too, idk if there’s messaging with this app, I’m new to it but if not we can comment back and forth if you want
