Hey folks 👋 just dropping in on the fly today as I’m about to head off. Will be very busy with work the rest of the week so I may not be on as much. I’ve just looked at the calendar and realised it’s also my wedding anniversary today. It’s funny how i can remember it now that my wife isn’t here! 🙃 anyway, I hope everyone has a good day/night and soz I don’t have time to chat but hope to be around tonight—unless i face plant from exhaustion the second I get to the hotel 👋

Is there a particular reason or is it just mood? 🤗
I guess everytime I see my mum drink it upsets me, even if she is not really drunk.
Cause back growing up some stuff happened.
So now I've just seen her drink it kind of triggers me and makes me feel really sad.

I also just feel strange anyway, because I feel like I can't talk to people in the real world. At all. And I have a lot of phobia about leaving my house.
So I mainly have just been inside for months and months. I just feel completely separated from all the rest of people. Lonely as hell. And like my life is nothing, like I don't even have an identity.

I also ruminate over mistakes that I've made. And general sadness from the life I've lived I guess.

I just can't find it in me to be motivated when I feel so darned low.

I can relate slightly with your mum drinking, some not nice memories.

Could you maybe start small by going out for a short walk? Not far, just for some fresh air. You could extend that when you feel a bit more comfortable and maybe find a walking buddy?

Yep, can totally understand ruminating on mistakes!! Haven’t got a cure for that I’m afraid 😕

The trick is, baby steps. Tiny things to do, to aim for, they build up and before you know it you’ve accomplished more than you realise you have 🤗

Yeah that's what people say, like it's a gradual thing of practising more and more coping skills. I just, when I'm feeling like this I don't feel like doing.

I could go for a walk but the problem is growing up I was always going for walks, as a release, when I was upset, around this area. So when I go for one now, it kind of brings it back. I generally don't like being out and about around here, even if it's just a little walk. It feels like re-visiting the past.
So it feels easier just to stay in my room.

Honestly I can't imagine finding a walking buddy. I'm totally useless at like interacting with anyone. As in, I can't even speak to people. I just feel like I'm a waste of time to be honest. And I'm tired of investing in people to just get disappointed.

I almost don't even know why I came on here to ask anything. I appreciate your response so much but. It's as if my mind-frame is so negative right now, it's almost pointless because whatever I write it's just going to bring others down so maybe I should stop.

Instead of logging in every now and then because I have now got back into my photography, I have decided now is the time to move on with my life. It has been good while it lasted so for me to stay positive now I have asked to have my account deleted so we can all move on. I wish everyone a safe journey in their mental health as I now know I will move on now.
Good luck Bod

Thank you for all of the supportive posts you have given me over the last few months.

I'm glad things are going well right now.

Please remember we are always here if you ever need to come back.

Sorry dewey I wasn’t ignoring you I fell asleep 🤦🏻‍♀️

You’re not a waste of time at all. I understand what you mean about investing in people and being disappointed, I know that all too well.

You have all of us on here who care about you, please keep talking to us, it does help honestly 🤗
