I'm so depressed, nothing is worth being here for

I can hardly bring myself to write on here even. I just want to curl up and stay in my bed for months. Why do I have to keep on and on, putting up an act. It's work that makes it more difficult. Being a carer doesn't pay well, yet I was enjoying it a few months ago. I have that being sucked down a plug hole feeling again and everything is too much.

Sorry to bring more doom and gloom, I used to be all jokey on here, it now I'm not, I fear people won't like me. It's such an effort. I've been like this for 28 years now. Help me God please!

I think of walking in front of a truck, I wouldn't feel it.........

Please ignore the signature at the bottom, this isn't really me any more.

Sorry you're in a bad way V. It is hard to put on a face and pretend everything's ok when it's really far from it, but we still do it somehow.

Don't worry about not being jokey all the time, we all have our ups and downs, that is why we are here. We understand and still like you for who you are.

Be kind to yourself and take care :hug:

Dearest Voyager, I feel so much for what you're going through. I've been there and it's hell. I'm sending you a big hug and want to encourage you to hang in there. Do you have any people; family or friends you could reach out to? Know that I care and will be keeping you in my thoughts.

Lots of hugs v :hug: sometimes life is easy and happy and cool, and sometimes it becomes more challenging. Low energy is a particular trap that I've had to contend with as well, it's insidious and all you can do is become really physical and focus on getting enough exercise and eating healthy. It's the time of year as well, maybe see the GP and see if he can get you examined for SAD (seasonal adjustment disorder) and maybe you will get one of those daylight lamps...

Take care :)

Don't apologise for how you feel, V. We're here to help.:hug1:

Sounds like you're really struggling at the moment.

Perhaps hold on to the fact you were enjoying your job. Even though you've been suffering with your mental health issues for so long, you have also felt enjoyment at times.
It's really important to remember the good.
Depression can be relentless and unendurable, but things can (and will) ease off for you.

What can you do to make life a bit easier at the moment? How can you take care of yourself? x
