I’m struggling. I’m struggling bad. Every day is a fight to stay alive this week. Depression is so evil. I know I have to be here. It would be so selfish of me to take my own life, but damn it feels like the easy option.

      Believe me, I felt and sometimes feel that way. Try to write down how you feel...it might make you feel better...and I hope it does🤗

      Do you know what causes you to feel this way?

      • Careabear

        560d

        @Exhaustipated unfortunately yes. It’s a combination of too many hard/sad things happening at once. I just have reached this point where I am overwhelmed and sick of the sadness. I feel like it’s never ending and all consuming.

      When I'm really struggling, I watch a year jerkerer of a movie so that I can let those emotions out. I tend to bottle them up and crying is an excellent way to release them. I Always feel better afterwards. My nose may be running and my eyes all red and puffy, but physically I feel so much better. Also, have you asked your doctor about S.A.D.?

        @sorenachy unfortunately we are going through some major family changes that I am finding have brought up some trauma. I am working with a therapist to get through this.

          @Careabear ❤️❤️❤️ I truly hope you are able to get this all dealt with and come out better on the other side.

      Sweet pea we apparently are walking similar paths. I've been battling through it today fighting back. Thank you for posting this. Truly... Thank you. I just sat down after keeping myself busy for the past 3 hrs. I struggle interacting with my own and dug down deep to get every ounce of strength to stay focused on cleaning and laundry. Everyone knows when something bothers me because my house is impeccable lol. Gotta channel all that crap somewhere... Might as well be in areas that'll benefit me later. Plus it makes me feel better knowing I achieved small goals and ended my day on a good feeling.

      I’m so sorry you’re in such a low place. I’ve been there too. Know it will pass. It stinks while we are going thru it but it will pass. I hope you have some good support around you. Sending you gentle hugs
