I have a variety of mental health disorders and I expressed that to someone today. People continue to make it worse by misunderstanding and suggesting what I need to do when they have no clue what this battle is like. I just would like to connect with someone who can relate amd building a friendship would be an a cherry on top. Well wished to everyone!

      I get you! I have anxiety, ADD , depression, ocd …. Every day is a struggle and it’s been hard since after high school. I am now 38. I struggled always with a temper or at least getting easily frustrated due to ADD…. My temper has evened out but every day is a struggle… it’s been hard to stay on the meds which do help but then I go days forgetting bc I am wrapped up in other things. The constant negative thoughts or disparity that I am not where I should be in life is exhausting. I never feel I get much done in a day and feel judged for that …. Over the years I have had comments push my way as such . Even when depression first set in it took me having a few bad episodes and my step dad pining me to the stairs saying I worthless and mom calling the cops on me. I had 3 or four years of fight in me where I made decent money as a dog walker but have scaled down so much first bc my daughter was in the hospital due to a collapsed lung but then catching COVID and the symptoms lingering. Now my symptoms are not around but I am in a bad mental space that I just don’t have that push. Everyday I worry so much that I am so mentally fatigued. I have three kids and fur babies that I love and need to bring money in , I am hoping soon my hubby will get more service connection through the VA so I can be his aid as he suffers from tbi (traumatic brain Injury) that too people close to me or even strangers don’t get and will get upset at my hubby for saying odd things or talking on and on and I try and help him but between peoples unhelpful thoughts on me , him or how I do my daily life takes such a toll. They don’t realize. It’s sad I feel unless you have experienced similar people don’t get the magnitude of what going within and how exhausting it is.

      I've also got depression - for 25 years on and off. Not only do people not understand it, and sometimes make unhelpful suggestions or casual remarks about it, they also don't know what it's like having a chronic condition that can affect life every day! I don't get the support I need because it doesn't occur to them that it's still happening the next day, and the next day... I definitely understand your frustration!
