I can’t under why few days ago I was feeling hopeful and now I’m back to feeling like sh**…

I have been feeling so low and depressed and feeling like I don’t want to leave my house, a few days ago I was feeling positive but when I feel like this I feel like was it real or was I acting?

I don’t want to leave my house because I feel really anxious, my anxiety gets worse everytime my depression gets worse.

I feel like my heads going to explode, I just want to feel happy and live each day and make the most of it, but I feel like my mental health is trapping me in a cage and I can’t get out of it.

Why must I feel hopeless and unmotivated, I mean yeah I don’t work at the moment but I’m hoping to get somewhere to work as soon as I can, and hopefully that happens soon, but it also makes me feel depressed and low, like as if I’m a robot and trying to do “normal” things in life to get by.

I just want to feel free from my depression and feel free from anxiety and free altogether!!!

My head hurts because I feel so low, I don’t do much during the day, I have problems sleeping at night, I wake up and I think why, I don’t have anything to do, I am SO lonely and have no one around me all the time, I don’t have friends because I find it hard to socialise…


I dont understand this… can someone please help me understand this? Because I really dont!

Sadly with depression and anxiety they go together like a hand in a glove, so when we get them both together we think WTF is going on as yesterday or last week I was happy and smiling and feeling good, now I am feeling like shite. It is like our minds are programmed to throw the odd spanner in the works as I say so in our head it starts to say shite time feeling and we go through that sadly as I do my self sometimes. Like me in the mornings I go out for a good long walk and say Good morning to other dog walkers and it is a great feeling to smile and say that to each other, then if I start to feeling lonely I will go into town and my local pub and while having a couple of drinks I talk to the staff so I just have to try and motivate my self more and it helps make me happy.

Hello Bod.. thank you for commenting ☺,so your saying depression and anxiety works against each other from time to time? Well you see when I walked my grandparents dog, and speaking to others around me did help as well, but unfortunately I only see them from time to time as well as my sister.. and they all don’t live far away from me, nor does my sis work, she’s just prefer to be with her best mate that she only started speaking to again since she was pregnant 5 years ago. I also don’t drink an awful lot, I may buy fruity flavoured drinks but that about it or if I was going to the bar it Would be cocktails. But I’d never have the confidences to go alone, I don’t really go far away from my hometown were I live, I just stay around the doors which I know is bad but I feel panicky when I go away to a different town, I always feel safer here. I would love to be free from all mental illnesses so I could go out there and enjoy my life like I should’ve been doing all along

Some days I might get just anxiety on it's own and then other days it might be depression on it's own, then on a really bad day for me I get both together and it just makes things harder for me to even think about let alone do. When I go to my local I have one beer and then a fizzy drink as it's just nice to be out and about in the sun.

Yeah that would happen to me too, sometimes I only have anxiety and feel anxious about things going on, or when I’m feeling depressed and just feel low and unmotivated, but like today I feel both and it can be very overwhelming when it’s both.. I feel like my brains fighting with each other.. but it takes courage to go out and be able to do that! Like I used to go on my bike and just go to the Library and be around other people to make me feel less anxious about being around others. But the doctor has got me on anxiety tablets which makes me feel like I have no emotions 🙈 which I also hate

Have you tried to talk to your doctor and ask for a change of meds ?

No I haven’t spoken to the doctor about changing my medication as I’ve been on them since I was about 16/17yrs old

Maybe it is time to ask your doctor for a change of meds then, as they might find a better one for you just a thought.
