WantToFeelBetter

Hi friends. I’m struggling more than I’m not. It’s very isolating, mental illness. So often I’m a prisoner of my mind and emotions. I feel so unstable, out of control. I struggle with the will to fight, the will to get better. I’m tired. In every way. I am tired. A hamster in a never ending wheel. Sometimes I can adapt.. mostly I want to hide. Escape. I feel like I’m failing, especially failing my child. I’m not really sure what to say or who to say it too. I just hope I’m not alone.

    Are you taking any meds?

      not currently.. I was out in anti depressants at a young age and played the med game for over a decade. Nothing really seemed to help, but rather what had the least side effects. I’m really Afraid to go down that road again but I’m also equally afraid of living this way. I don’t really know where to start.

        hi you should try to get mental health help. Seems like you on a stage where you can’t even control it. There are so many resources, clinics and studies for it. Check your area. You don’t want to get worst.

    You are not alone and at least you have a child. They need you. Don't forget that!

    It's nice to know someone else feels the same way it's like you said one giant wheel that never stops

    Not alone. Consider getting genetic testing. For me, traditional antidepressants and anti anxiety meds don't work because of a genetic condition. Now I take an over the counter vitamin for my depression and they prescribe an odd medicine for my anxiety issues. Anyway, the important thing is keep pushing for help. It took me a very many years to find the reason nothing worked, but Drs are more aware now than they used to be and have more options for treatment than in the past.

    I'm starting to feel that way tonight. Kinda lost. Just know you are not alone and I see on here that others have been there. ❤️ some days I just keep saying a minute, hour day at a time.

    You are not alone. A lot of people suffer that way. Call a friend or a professional. Talk therapy is very good. I also found that by doing hobbies or something I enjoy doing really helps me a lot.
