How are you. Really?
Terrible. I can barely get out of bed recently due to constant doctors appointments. A family member says I don't try enough, when I do. I constantly struggle facing the reality of my illnesses and how that effects both me and everyone I love. I am severely lonely and wish I could actually make friends, but I have really bad social anxiety.
I’m so sorry to hear that. I really relate to your struggles. What’s good is that your actually trying. Even if they don’t see it now you still are. With enough confidence and patience I’m sure you will live and love even higher than their expectations. Sometimes I find it hard to make friends to. At the moment I feel like all my friends are leaving me. Some of them are lashing out on me because they were being selfish. Sometimes you just need a person who will listen. Give advice and only focus on you. I hope you will try to open up to people and not let the little things get to you. I know it’s hard but just keep trying.
I’m doing okay, and maybe my past self would see that as a victory but being just okay all the time makes life so dull. I miss being able to really truly feel my emotions, both positive and negative. But from the outside it just looks like “I’m doing fine”
I often feel the same. I feel like it’s a never ending loop of just the same thing. Like I feel it’s going to be the same forever. But it won’t. I know it’s not my place to say but you should push yourself. Do something exciting make new friends go out to dinner. And if that sounds exhausting take baby steps. Maybe take a you day and just listen to some music and do skincare? I don’t really know what you like?
thank you for your reply💕 pushing myself is actually really good advice and has yielded positive results in the past (but maybe not in the way you’re thinking of) I tend to be the type of person that really invests my worth into my level of productivity and I find a hard time relaxing (it’s as if I’m working, or I’m doing “nothing” and I’m failing) so going out and doing things, cleaning my house, etc tends to be “easy” nervous behavior for me, but it doesn’t yield a true sense of accomplishment. When I force myself to take things slowly and enjoy a really small pleasure (like sitting in the sun and reading a book) I find that it drastically improves the rest of my day, so you’re right I should push myself to make more opportunity for those moments, so thank you again and I wish you well 💕
Lonely. My mental illness has made it impossible to make friends.
Worried about my partner and struggling to cope with the pain
anxious confused and miserable. i feel like i can never catch a break, and when something good happens something always comes and ruins it.
Honestly feel unheard, lost, and not really myself. Feel like I’m a piece of crap and that I shouldn’t be how/where I’m at in life.
Losing the battle honestly. Nobody around me knows what is going on and it feels like my family pushes their problems onto me. I don't talk to them anymore like I used to. I have some anger issues and I try to avoid people lest I snap at them and really go off.
