Why does my soul feel so bad

I listened to that song today. It is so true for me. I feel so sad, my soul feels so sad, i just feel so sad all the time. I do get brief reprieves but they are very brief. I'm always walking beneath a dark cloud. When it rains, it pours. When the sun peeks through, cloud very quickly blocks out the light.

This thoughtful post touched me, I don't know why but hang in there.

I'm glad Porkpie. The sun is here now but it will be brief. I dread going to bed because that is when everything hits me. I am left alone in the dark with my thoughts and that is not a good thing. In the day i am more distracted. I'm going to lay down and watch casualty now and try and get some empty mind time. :hug:

Hugs to you SadSoul. :hug1:
Your posts resonate with me too. My soul is sad at the moment and I know how the loneliness of the early hours can make you feel worse.
I hope that you manage to get to sleep ok this evening.

Do you ever read before going to bed?
I know that's a bit random but I find that reading a novel helps distract my thoughts until i'm sleepy enough that I know i'll nod off as soon as I turn out the light.
If I don't read, I stay awake spiralling lower and lower.

I should read, thanks for reminding me. I have my kindle with me so will try. It's escapism isn't it.
