One of the worst parts of my current depression is constant emotional pain. Sadness that sits in my chest and my stomach... It's quite physical really. Sometimes I'm not sure it's actually the depression - maybe it's grief and/or trauma...? I don't know. Just wondered if others feel constant pain like this?

Yes,,i do.I always feel emotional Pain,its difficult to explain to someone who does not have it. Its constant worrying aswell,constant OCD thoughts. I wish my head would just switch off and happy thoughts just be there but this never happens. Its tiring in itself. I feel you SadRainbow,,i really do. :hug:

Grief and trauma can cause physical pain and it is bloody horrible as I had it for quite a while until I stated to talk about it.

morty2 I'm sorry you suffer with it too. And the OCD thoughts - I've had periods of that in my life and I know it's just torture. I too often wish I could switch my mind off, or maybe kill parts of it.

Kinda. I dont have any good days, all days are bad for me. And its tiresome. Im not someone who cries or something like that, I feel bad, but its not a sad feeling, its more a nostalgic feeling, and a tired feeling, but yes, this is everyday, all the hours.

Hi Sadrainbow, yes, everyday. Think for me it's stress+grief+unresolved issues+demands +compromised ability. Feel it emotionally, mentally and physically.

Certainly depression is a form of pain. One of the worst. I wouldn't wish it on my worst enemy. Plus, when you treat it with antidepressants, you get more painful side effects. It would be nice if someone could find a real cure.

It's a physical feeling.

I usually feel it in my upper torso. Or a heavy weight pushing on the front of my neck. I thought it's because of the gym but no lol. But I kind of got used to it (I don't have it always)... acknowledging it's there and just my body

@SadRainbow, I'm lucky, most of the time it isn't there but when it hits it hits hard. Hugs to all of you.
