I've been struggling for awhile, but my mood has shown some improvement lately. Then suddenly over the last couple days I've been feeling down again. My anxiety can be really tough at times too. Sometimes it completely goes away and other times it comes back again. The ups and downs can be frustrating.

Hi Rider

I know what you mean, my mood is usually down but some times I come up for fresh air, it is frustrating, I want to be able to breath fresh air all the time, all I can say is try to put your mind to some thing It does help me that I have a hobby I can put my mind to some times.

Hi sorry you have been feeling down again.😕
It is a viscous cycle - you feel ok for a while then boom !!! It’s back with no explanation 😕😕😕
I don’t understand it either !!!
I’ve suffered with anxiety/ depression for many years & also on meds for years
But for the last 4 months it’s been so bad
Had 5 good days last week then I woke up and it’s here again
Anxiety - low mood - nervous- scared- shaky- lightheaded- worrying- tired- lethargic - hot/cold- burning skin- nausea & the list goes on
I’m having CBT by phone weekly & everything I’m being told makes sense but when I’m really bad I find it so difficult to put these things into practice
My sleep is awful & dreams wake me up
I just want to go to bed & sleep on days like this, hoping when I wake I’ll feel a bit better
Hoping you are feeling better very soon x

Hi I've been feeling the same way the last couple days. Depressed mood, anxious, shakey, etc. I was doing better for a few weeks and then it hit me. I hope you feel better soon.

Hi. I'm new here, just joined today because this happened to me. I feel like I was doing okay with everything and then I just hit a real bottom and am really struggling. I joined because I have a lot of people in my life, but nobody to talk to. I hope tomorrow you feel better, Rider. Thanks

Last March I having weekly therapy and I felt I was doing some progress. Since my psychiatrist made me try another anxiety medication, I feel like I regress the last 6 months. It’s really depressing. I feel tired all the time. Nothing seems to interest me. My relationship is hurting and I’m having a hard time figuring out what emotion is real and what is cause by my mental health. I’m normally so rational and lately I don’t recongnise myself anymore. I’ve tried so many things over the years and now I feel exhauted. I don’t really want to die, but my brain often has the feeling that it would be easier for everyone if i wouldn’t exist. Its hard to keep fighting everyday. I feel numb. I’m not even sad anymore, but there is not a day that goes down where i feel happy. I hate myself. I’m angy at everyone and everything. I feel trapped in a loop that is only going downward. I try not to think about it. But many of you know emotions don’t work like that. Wheather you think about it or not, unresolved issues are still bottering you. Slowy eating you from the inside out.

So thats how I feel most of the time...
