Hi there. Depression is a weird disease. It makes you do and think weird things. Have you seen a doctor? They have wonderful treatments and medication that will allow you to feel and function just like the old days. It's hard to put on a "good face" eveyday when inside you are battleing the fight of your life. Happy thought and all that jazz don't work. Medication does.
No matter how happy your life is around you sometimes it's not enough. Seek medical help ASAP and start living.....................................................
Been there, done that. It works.
Oh Daisha, that is the problem in it's self. You need to sleep honey. Your sleep deprivation is causing all kinds of wacky things. You need to ask your doctor about Ambian or something like that. You may be one of those people who only need 4 to 5 hours a night but still you need some good quality rest.
If you can't sleep and the TV is obnoxious do some knitting or painting. I think a lot of your problems or anxieties are from lack of good old fashioned sleep.
Hi there Daisha,
I think living with any kind of chronic illness (Whether it is mental e.g. Depression or physical e.g. Epilepsy) is hard and I dont think it really gets any easier to the point where you dont think about it. I certainly think you have found the right place to come and ask questions etc... we are like a family here and we all care about and support each other.
Thanks everybody for the encouragement. I was really having a bad day today, trying to just make it from one hour to the next. It's frustrating when you know that the problem is not so simple-it's you. Hope everybody is having a good day/night.
Hi Daisha, you are not alone with you depression. It's a devastating feeling to see the rest of the world go about their business with smiles on their faces. Try it though. Get out there and walk. Look at the beautiful things around you and remember that you are one of them. They can prescribe all the drugs in the world but the body has an uncanny ability to heal itself. Look around you and enjoy. remember that you have a roof over your head and people that love you and are praying for you. God heals all wounds and he if there for you.
Sorry I have not been on the site in a couple of days, trying to catch up. I have not been in a good mood--but trying none the less to make it. I go to the doctor tom and I am about to come unglued. My nerves are very bad and I am restless. Have decided tonight I would rearrange my room and it is in a total mess. For some reason earlier I thought this was a good idea. It was not a good project to start while I'm in this type of mood. Hope everyone is having a good night and I hope tomorrow brings everything you hope for.
Im really sorry that you are not feeling great at the moment. Hopefully when you see the doctor today he will be able to set you on the right track. As for re-arranging bedrooms... I went through a phase where I did it every 6 months or so and my room would be a bombsite for weeks during the move. I agree its not the best thing to do when your mood is fragile as you can give up half way through and you end up with a very big mess! lol (I know because its happened to me! lol)
I hope today brings you all that you deserve.
