Feeling empty

That point I feel between okay and not okay is so agitating. It happens when I don't want to live anymore but I'm not going to try to kill myself. It's like an empty void and I start to get desperate to escape it so I usually push towards the depression.

I felt the same way for years.

Had my first psychotic break

Lost all my friends and my fiancé.

Then nearly died in the hospital

Decided to pursue nursing

Every one told me I couldn't pull it off due to my mental state

I IGNORED THEM

AND I JUST GOT INTO MY TARGET PROGRAM

Symptom free

never felt happier in my life.

Even though my most recent ex just cheated on me and left.

Screw her my dreams are calling me now. I am a year away.

So close I can almost taste it.

Find something to fill that void that matters to you, and don't listen to people who tell you that you cant do it.

Try to push towards happiness instead. Find things you like to occupy your time.

I hope it all works out for you

I learned in one of my science classes that by making the hard choices in the short term you can force them to become easier and habitual

It starts out hard, but gets easier

Best of luck.

Thank you, I trust science and it helps me understand what happens with my weird thoughts
