I new to this forum so hello!
I suffer with depression. Prob have done for most of my life, but was only diagnosed 4 years ago when when became too much and I went to see the doc.
I was bullied in the earlier years of secondary school, then went on to develop an eating disorder in my mid teens. Kinda sorted myself out from late teens to early 30's,allbeit always a worrier/ overthinker/ anxious, but then depression decided to grab me from then on.

So here I am now, mid 40's and feel like the most miserable s0d on the planet. Everyone at the moment seems to be getting on my nerves and I seem to have no patience. I find myself moaning about everything when I have conversations with people, and hate myself for doing it afterwards.

I've hated my job for years, and since the pandemic started, Ive been working from home, with very little work to do. You'd think that would be ideal for someone who disliked their job wouldnt you, but it has made me hate it more! I keep telling myself I should be greatful I have a job and just get on with it, but i cant!

I enjoy weight training, but seem to have developed an obsession with my body and seem to be on a constant diet to try lose some weight. I know im not fat but that seems to make no difference... Im always comparing myself to mid 20's men when im mid 40's! Prob a midlife crisis!

I generally feel like i have gone mad, and I can see no way out...

Hey Viking 👋
Pleased to meet you & :welcome:
Lockdown is affecting us all badly,it`s never ending isn`t it?
I am the biggest worrier/overthinker on the planet,so I understand
what you are going through.
I lay in bed & force myself to have Gratitude for the little things I
have 🙂 It`s not much at all,but it`s better than some peoples lives.
Walking my dog helps me massively.
I hope you manage to find some support here.
It`s a horrible,gloomy time..
I am hoping the Spring weather & lighter Evenings help
lift my mood.

Gratitude is 'so important' when resting or having a drink 'being in the moment' and appreciating something from the past, soak those high vibes thoughts up...
