So, some days I feel like I'm great - I feel like I'm on top of the world and that I have no problems. But other days, my problems seem overwhelming and it feels like I can't sleep or think about anything but the negative. It's just really overwhelming me lately - can't sleep.

Also, something I've noticed is I feel like I'm lacking confidence at times during social situations, which has never happened to me - I'm usually the loud jerk! I feel like I'm finding myself thinking about other things even when I'm with other people. It really feels like life is just passing me by sometimes.

I just wish I could make it so that things didn't phase me - or maybe just be more sane? Am I crazy? Sometimes I think I am...what do you guys think? Sometimes I almost want to blame it on me being single too long and not having someone to share thoughts with - could this really be a factor?

A few things I think about sometimes to chill out and not think about the bad:

-Everyone has problems
-The awesome things I've done and still do
-Family
-Female attraction to me (always feels good to be wanted for your looks)
-Friends

What else should I be thinking about - how can I just change my mindset overall? I feel like I think way too much in general...

On top of it all - I'm only 22 - what am I *****ing about!?

Hi there,

Welcome to the healingwell depression forum. Often our minds wander. Practice staying in the present. Listen to what others are saying and really think about what you want to say back. It takes practice but you can do this. It is a matter of being in the NOW. It sounds as if your mind wanders. There is always of course counseling. That could help you practice mindfulness. Meditation helps with that too.

I hope that you feel better soon.

Hugs, Karen.
