Feeling Down This Afternoon

A few days ago I didn't have as much anxiety, but felt tired. I was feeling ok yesterday until the evening. Then I felt more anxious last night and today I feel down. I still wonder about the voices/sounds falling asleep or waking up sometimes. I keep being told it's normal and not usually a mental health issue. I think that's what makes me feel worse.

That usual feeling of slowness and heaviness :(
Do what you're good at, listen to music, draw, sing, dance if you can, have some steadiness in your mind to keep lifting those boulders off of your chest,
much love :))

Hi, I did some fishing the other day. I usually keep myself busy.

Are the voices like inside your head or do you hear them as though they are beside you?
because sometimes I have this feeling come over me when it’s like I get thoughts into my head that aren’t mine. So I started to write them and now I have written dozen of stories. I think it’s some sort of coping technique with what you have. I went to my doctor and told him exactly what was happening and he said it’s very common with people with borderline.

The sound like they're coming from inside. I can't even really make out what's being said. It only lasts a few seconds drifting off or waking up.

I think it’s some sort of coping technique perhaps but I honestly don’t know. It could be a simple reason, I sometimes get sleep paralysis and my mind is working but I can’t move and I think all sorts of stuff before it’s over. Does that happen to you at all?

I don't get sleep paralysis. The only other I thing I get is vivid dreams.

I think you should call a mental health team and take things from there. They will help you as they helped me massively. Pray on it too.

I went a couple different times for a mental health assessment. The first time I was told it was stress, get counseling, and good luck. The second time I said I'm hearing voices during sleep. I was referred to counseling or crisis. I don't feel myself and trying to figure out where to find help elsewhere.
