Depression - best advice you guys have gotten / methods to cope? I am so good in some moments then out of nowhere i feel so hopeless and in tears or just plain empty and brain dead pretty much. Almost like my mind knows its too much and just does not want to think about everything, but my body is still aware and is numb. It’s hard to even do basic things when this happens… im about to start meds but man sometimes i feel so so hopeless anyway… i get anxiety because i know i should keep up my routine ect but the depression wont let me… such a cycle. Don’t know how much longer i can take this tbh
I’ve gotten better at not being so hard on myself & controlling my emotions. But sometimes i feel like i stop myself from crying by literally telling my brain to just forget about whatever i am thinking or dissociate if something i can’t control is happening (like if i’m depressed and arguing with someone but its too much for me). It works but i wish i didn’t have to do that… i know its not healthy. I think i’m just desperate tbh. And scared. Lol thank god this app is anonymous cuz i sound like a lunatic… it’s tough because none of my friends know what i am going through. Only family and though they are supportive, they have their lives together and are busy. Anyway thanks if you read this far 😞
You're not alone.
Other than keeping up with hygiene, keeping a clean space, writing and observing rough thoughts, I don't have many other ones. Sometimes people can help just being around them. But other times nothing can help and all that can be done is meditation, a comfortable spot and hope that tomorrow will be better.
@sydari thank you. So true… 🙏
Being kind and compassionate to yourself has been the best advice I’ve gotten from my therapist. You really don’t realize how mean you are to yourself til you really sit down and think through your thoughts. It is hard at first but it becomes more easier when you get the hang of it.
