Hi everyone today has started off bad I woke up shaking all over i've already been crying this morning. I feel so helpless and hopeless everyone keeps saying you're gonna get through this but it seems like it's taking forever i've been out of the hospital for 7 days today and i'm so depressed. I just feel like I can't make it through this I hate the way this anxiety and depression makes me feel inside. It's like my insides are gonna come out and like my legs are gonna walk off of my body. I'm taking meds and they have helped some I guess I just want them to take all the discomfort away. Everyone says i'm not working hard enough on changing my thought patterns and things like that maybe i'm not i'm not sure. I just know i'm so weak and i'm tired of feeling this way I wanna smile again i'm starting to forget what it feels like to be happy. I just want some relief. If anyone has any words of encouragement i'll gladly take them thank you for listening to me...April

Good Afternoon April,

Grats on day 7. One day at a time. Hour by hour minute by minute. That is what it takes. Slow steady pace. Be proud of yourself. You are doing just fine.

I understand its very hard. Its even harder for others to even "get a clue" of what is going on. Tell these people or person you need support and not negative thoughts or words.
Be proud of yourself you have made it this far. That is a good sign of improvement. Keep it up. Everyday is a challenge only you face. And I know we can understand what you are going through. And that helps you feel better. But we can't go through this for you. So it is your own challenge. It is NOT a race to be better tomorrow. It is a challenge for you to just get better. Let it be next week or the week after. Only time will tell.
Take it one day at a time.

Did you know. That crying its actually a good thing? It helps your body release stress and relaxes the body. Its the bodies way of dealing with over whelming situations. It is another emotion that we deal with.
I know during the water works we don't feel so good. But afterwards. Think about it. Your body feels better. You feel better. If you actually really look into it. Its a small relief. And small relieves are better then none!
After a good water works, tissue huggin event. I feel so much better. So much is let out and "talked" through that I can and do work through the day just a little better. So don't look so much into crying as being a bad sign.

Things are going to happen weither we like them or not. Its one of those things we have to accept. Its part of who we are. And that is ok. You can accept this rough time and work through it the best you can. Or fall deeper into it and have to fight harder to get out. I think you are fighting and doing really well. And just keep it up. One step at a time.

April if I could I would be there with you. Sitting right next to you and giving you a great big hug. You my dear are going to be fine. Just give it some time. It takes time. And a lot of it. Patience is a virtue. And you need to be patient with your body in its need to recover. Give it the time it needs. As frustrating as it is. You still need some time.

One day, one hour, each minute its getting better!

Great big hugs
((((((HUGS)))))) to you.

April, Allestaria said everything perfectly, so all i will say is you are on the journey of the healing process.

The journey can seem daunting and the destination unreachable. However if you take it literally one day at a time and give yourself a chance, you will make it! we are alll here for you. I wish i could remove your pain and anxiety, you are doing so well though, 7 days is an achievement! May i ask what meds you are on? I hiope they are helping, finding the right balance can be so tricky.

Im sending the peace and love to you in bucket fulls. stay with us and let us help where we can- we understand.

Nice responses, guys! Very sweet and thoughtful....

April, when the feelings of sadness/depression come over you, just float with them. Tell yourself these feelings are only temporary (which they are). They can't hurt you. Make sure you are doing something fun every day and things that release stress. Have compassion for yourself and remember it takes time.

I'm sending hugs to you, too!
