I am here posting a portion of an entree I made in my journal a few days ago. I was undergoing a bad day and in brief I expressed how I felt during that storm.

Please explain how you experience a bad day?
_

My entree:

The sensation I am now under feels like being trapped inside my own rib cage. The pain is deep inside my chest and that pain/emptiness seems to be localized over my pulsing heart During all this misery you fully tired/fatigued in your your body/head. (I HATE IT!)

A bad day can be many things. I've been depressed for a month so there have been some bad hours. All the experience is common stuff for people who are depressed or anxious. Some gloomy thoughts, low energy, boredom, brain fog, not much hope for the future, dwelling on the past, and sometimes simple things appearing harder to do than usual. The inner critic is strong sometimes, telling me I'm useless or whatever. I've got low self-esteem I guess. Don't feel confident or capable a lot of the time. But the antidepressants are starting to help after two weeks so far. And I still function pretty much the same as before maybe with a nap during the day.

It depends on what made it a bad day. It could result in anger, depression or anxiety...just depends on what caused it.

These times, my bad days are mostly about my friend I couldn t prevent to kill himself (9 years ago but it still hurts :/ ).
I feel so guilty, I listen to the last music he sent before doing it. And there is so much pain in it. And knowing that I let him alone feeling that, makes me feel horrible. I hate myself and I want to sh.
It s difficult to breathe too when I m in this state. And I keep thinking that I m sorry to have let him alone.
