Feeling worse now than a few years ago

I feel like I'm worse off now than I was back in 2017. Even though back then I was way more depressed and had a lot more suicidal thoughts I also interacted more with other people but now that's just way too high of a mental hurdle for me.

I was also way more active in trying to get help but now I'm basically just waiting for something from the outside to happen that'll significantly effect my current life or just straight up kill me because either or is way better than how I'm currently living my life.

i know how hard it is, but please try to remember there is always something to live for. things get better, you could be a day away from an event or person that could change your life for the better. dont give up, keep fighting. if you feel in danger, call 999 and stay safe.

With this pandemic ongoing and people isolated from each other the 'good ole days' of 2019 and before seem almost nostalgic. Yeah, we had problems then-but at least we could get out and interact with folks. Just go to a store walking around was nice, to help shake you out of a funk. Today? It's a grind.

im sorry youre feeling this way jamie.....i know how tough depression can be but you need to remember that you will get better, it just takes time.....i know when i was severely depressed i would have wanted someone to tell me that. Justtake it as easy as possible, relax as much as you can.....have you ever tried the herbal remedy St Johns Wort, it is a herb to treat depression.....anyway keep up posting here on the forum for support

Know that your situation is not permanent. There will be better days for you. Create happy moments because happiness is a choice.

Listen to uplifting and encouraging songs on youtube because music is therapeutic and it helps.
