does anyone here ever have trouble remembering the last time they were truly happy? i feel like my conditions, along with the meds have numbed me to the point where i can’t experience life the same way… and now it just feels like i’m floating through life. even seeing other people experience happiness or excitement confuses me, it’s like how do you do it? is it real or are you faking it? anyway, excuse the rant— just wanted to see if i wasn’t alone in feeling this way 💓

      I don't know if I've ever been "truly happy." I have happy moments, sure.... But I don't know how long true happiness is supposed to last. Certainly it should last longer than a few moments, right?

      I can only remember very specific instances, not a time when I was happy in general if that makes sense

      the meds are have tons of side effects.. very disturbing ones as well. you may feel like you are living through the motions of life, I've felt that way for years and to this day I still fele like that but things gradually get better, you find little things to be happy about, it's difficult but you have to push yourself to enjoy things sometimes, you have to push yourself to go out even if you don't want to, I know it's scary but you have to. take time and care for yourself, take hot baths, eat nourishing food, get sunlight, see people you love and that love you back. let go of toxicity,of people, of social media that might be draining you. even music might drain you as well. or not sleeping enough. meds didn't ever work for me. they made me numb hypomanic and suicidal and gave me more anxiety. I let go of that and focused on taking the right supplements ( look into nootropics such as lions mane, l theanine, lemon balm) instead with mt coffee every morning - as well as going carnivore. Also don't ever get off your meds cold turkey!! That was one of my biggest mistakes. Good luck on everything ❤️

      You’ll be happy again. I’ve had a long lasting period of crisis after crisis. It turns out to help in appreciating the little things like weather or food, clothes and cleanliness. Give yourself little luxuries often.

      No I felt that before and y are valid, maybe y should bring this up to yr psych? Y should be able to get treatment w/o being numb like that

        @Alarata thx sm for responding 💕 and yeah i told my psychiatrist and she just prescribed me Wellbutrin… and my therapist hasn’t been helping a lot so I’m looking into DBT therapists which will hopefully give me the skills I need to get better 🙏🏼
