Just so desperate to feel alive again
Very much so. I have been feeling like this for so long now, it just feels like it gets worse when people say 'how you feel now is temporary' & I'm so exhausted from it. I feel like I've lost all my motivation & passion in life, I feel like I cannot function most of the time. I'm terrified I will never get out of thisAre you depressed?
I am just about to start some again... I dont know how much difference its going to make as I've had so many different ones, the GP has prescribed me ones I had 10 years ago as theres no others left to try.. I hope they do make a difference but I'm really not feeling optimistic about it.Are you taking any medications Nelly?
I think there are so many reasons, I've struggled with depression/anxiety for a long time but for the past 2 years it's got incredibly worse, lots of life events have impacted on that too. But I usually have a bad 'phase' & manage it (not without difficulty but I do it); this time however, it's been long while since I felt like I am able to function.Are there tangible reasons why you're struggling right now? Problems that are wearing you down?
Do you have support around you Nelly? Partner...parents..friends etc
I used to have favourite movies I could lost in, that's not a good strategy any longer because it no longer works & just keeps me unmotivated. I'm not sure what else I can do. I try meditation but get frustrated very easily with it, but I keep trying.So glad you're here - full of people who understand because they've been through this too.
Have you found any coping mechanisms that work for you?
I have to force myself out to walk...I feel emotionally stronger and brighter after a brisk, twenty minute walk.
What would usually make you feel stronger and better?
