My depression has become so bad, that I can't sleep in my bedroom. It makes me feel isolated and cut off. So I've been sleeping in the living room. Anyone else have this problem? How can I get over it? I miss my room.

My bedroom often feels like an awful place to be, especially when I can't sleep and jets are roaring above thanks (#Heathrowairport). Have you tried putting some pictures/art up on the walls? I am going to get this one framed and put it up in mine soon probably. Also, keep it clean including your bedding, there is nothing like the feeling of freshly cleaned sheets to help sleep.

I've had nights like that, but I turned my bedroom into my sanctuary, books and paintings and plants X

It's been like this for about four months. It started when my friend moved out. And I don't know how to fix it. I've decorated and even got a tv but nothing helps

I tried sleeping in my room recently and it just filled me with dread. What can I do to fix this?

Agree with all that . Your bedroom should be a restful place. No computers, maybe read a while before you go to sleep and a milky drink

So just an update for the last 3 nights I've been sleeping in my room. I have decorated and rearranged its better but still not great.

Conversely, the bedroom (and more specifically, my bed) is where I would spend all my time, just hiding away with my misery.
