I feel like I am going around in circles...

Sometimes I just feel like I am going around in circles. I try to put in the work, take my medication, and take care of myself. I feed the circle of improvement I went back to school and I do my assignments and attend the online classes, but then something happens that just shuts the circle of improvement down. I start feeling depressed I start to cry and anxiety just washes over me and then I just stop and it becomes easier to just want to give up. after a few hours of crying, I try my best to get up and function. I am just tired of this. I just wish I could just be okay. I'm tired of doing okay for a few days or weeks and then crumbling back into a ball of sadness...

I also feel like no one is patient with me. I also feel judged, and like my family and some of my friends don't understand, they do try but I feel like I can't talk to them because talking about how I feel doesn't always end well.

Not a lot, I would actually have to travel, and I can't really afford to talk to a professional right now. finances are not looking so good.

But just writing about it has made me feel a little better. it feels like I am doing something, if that makes sense.

You have to find the strength and stamina to keep going. There are other people who are in similar situations to you, I among them. Conquer doubt with wisdom, fear with courage, sorrow with grit, ill will with friendless and sensory desire with endurance. If you can't find the strength to keep going, find the strength for other people--those who are close to you like your family and even those you don't know.
