Letmein, i understand those feelings and they come and go for me also. It is a hard life when you are only just coping, surviving, but please go gentle on yourself as you are doing your best. Maybe those moments of self-frustration with our situation give us a small kick up the backside to have a good wash or eat a bit better. Maybe we can think of those times as small amounts of progress. Don't criticise yourself though, change the words you use when you are telling yourself off. Gentle words and sympathetic ones.

Sym pathetic. Where does that word come from? I call myself pathetic so much and it is one of the worst words. I should swap that to tired, depressed, exhausted, physically weak, overwhelmed.

Or you could have a cup of coffee and hot water bottle and get comfy in that hole.

Have you been out today? It made me feel better this morning as yesterday was bad so i didn't want to have repeat of it. It warms you up going for a walk.

It's good you had a sandwich, something healthier than pringles or chocolate that i had. I hope you can manage some hot food for dinner later, but i appreciate it is not easy to do.

That doesn't sound very tasty. I put loads of sausages in the oven, and have been eating them cold throughout the day. Surprisingly nice, bit of a crunch and good flavour. I might have a heart attack before i reach 50 but so what, better than cold stew from a can! or maybe not as you have had vegetables.

I get those feelings too but i walked today to the corner shop and it was invigorating. If i was more depressed, i would have arrived home sweating and ready to curl up and die. It is strange to feel more well like i do and typical that ESA review is coming up. I hope they don't call me for interview. I wish their system would curl up and die and leave me alone to get myself fit for work.

Do you feel better in the evenings? It is good to prep some meals and maybe freeze them in bulk, to defrost and reheat when you are not feeling well enough. You could buy cold foods too, like pate and crackers, pickled onions and cucumber, they make a nice meal.

sending you love. i can be consumed with self-hating thoughts at times as well, and it's very overwhelming. i feel horrible about myself and think that i've ruined people around me, and it can be difficult to remember that i have good qualities or that there are people who are happy to have been in my life. i know that external validation can only do so much when you're feeling like this, but there are people who care for you and think you're great. even if it's just someone who admired your clothing from afar, or felt cheered up by your smile in public.

you have worth and you are important. regardless of how you feel about yourself in this moment, try to remind yourself of that. i hope this feeling passes for you soon, and in the meantime im sending my support

Try to have sympathy for yourself rather than hating on yourself. It is not your fault, you are trying your best. You have posted on a forum how you feel and that does help others. It helps me to read what you write, i don't know why but it is nice to know someone is out there feeling the same as me, even though i hope you will wake up tomorrow and it will all be gone for you.

I'm sorry you feel ill, it is a desperate and helpless thing.
