Where do I start and what would you like to know? I stay in bed on and off through the day just taking simple steps right now to get my housework done. I do not have a job as it would be too difficult for me right now. I am on medications for anxiety and has helped but I still have gagging reflex when I feel uncertain-so anxiety never really goes away. The depression is constant in my life right now. I have had no luck in finding a "happy pill," to fix this one.
I believe it has to do with our state of mind and how far we withdraw from others when it comes to depression. I get invited out but with the anxiety I usually am a no show.
I know there’s reasons why I may have had a set back such as my mum dying I’m going through a divorce, not sad about the divorce it was my choice but some days it’s like I feel nothing I’m just numb, everyone says you have to get out go a walk do this do that they don’t understand I can barely get out my bed
I have yeah she’s lovely she gave me diazepam for a couple of days to take the edge off as it got quite bad, I feel like I’m lettineveryone downy younger sister my kids, I get up and do what I need to do as a mother of it wasn’t for them I never would do anything and without them I’d be lost but sometimes it’s just all too much and I get irritated easily I keep trying to remember what I learnt in cbt therapy but some days is just to much, I don’t want to feel like this anymore and I want the motivation to get up and sort things but I don’t know how??
Have you ever seen a psychiatrist?
Sometimes people need a combination of drugs, I changed my outlook while in hospital.
Lots of people improve, keep hope.
Hope you feel better soon
Hi there and welcome
You are going through a lot.
The loss of your Mum thats huge.
I lost my beloved dad almost 10 years ago now, it still feels like yesterday,the pain does go and you learn to live with it. I believe it leaves a part of a hole in your heart.
Also the divorce thats a huge process to work through,
Its all a grieving process. Give yourself a bit of slack,be kind to yourself. You are going through 2 of the hardest things to deal with in life.
Medication for me got my mood to a manageable level it can take a while to get the right type that works for you.
Do try and be kind to yourself,
Its great you have joined the forum, a great place of support
