Hey everyone I hope you're all well. I'm not doing okay, and Im aware that that is okay. It's okay to not be okay, but I'm in a state of depression that I just don't know how it'll end because quite frankly I feel compromised on every level. I'm struggling to find joy in anything, it's severe overthinking that just consumes my over all thinking. I just want this to end but I don't know how to do it. I have so much I want to do, I don't want to end my own life but I'm scared these thoughts will take me that direction.

I have so much I want to do
You mean, things in life that you'd like to do that would bring you happiness? What sort of things? Perhaps it could be possible to achieve them at some point. Maybe it isn't possible now, but it is worth pursuing goals. Please tell us more.

I do have goals for sure, and there's still a lot more to live for. But as of right now, I can't find enjoyment in almost anything as whenever I do a leusiure activity such as watching a film or TV series, all I can process is just negative thoughts and I'm just finding it so difficult to distract myself from them. And what scares me is, I've been way worse...

Does something trigger the negative feelings? Is it life in general or something specific? I know how it feels to not want to do things, and having no pleasure in entertainment, finding them to be a hassle rather than fun. Hopefully things will improve for you. Surely there is something that would make you a little happier. Even if it is something mundane, like having something nice to eat, or running about somewhere.

I’ve found talking through these emotions help. Also when I’m really low I write down how I’m feeling in a note book whether it be a few words, jokes, poetry doodles or whatever. I find it helps remind me they’re only bad thoughts and not who I actually am.
much love stay safe

Hi, Charlie, I’m sorry you are feeling bad lately.
Have you talked with anyone about it?

Sorry that u are having trouble, and feel so vulnerable. The thing about this site is that people are from everywhere so u don’t always know what resources they have. Is there a hotline or anything that u can call? Do u have a doctor or therapist? What do u really enjoy? There are so many different things that u can get info on per the net, or listen to music, watch a movie etc. You need a distraction to take your mind out of that trap. Don’t listen to the news. You say U have so much u want to do. So maybe you can write a plan of how u will accomplish 1 of them..
