Today is just not a good day - I don't know if it's because of the rain or what, but it's just a bad day.  Nothing is going right, I'm feeling very depressed - I don't even want to go to therapy today.  I don't want to go anywhere.  In fact I haven't left the house in two with the exception of my doctor/therapy appointments.  Yes, I know this is good, but I just feel safe and secure here in my house - I simply don't want to go anywhere.  I'm sleeping alot and have no motivation for anything.       sad

Hey Kiddo,

I am sorry your feeling this way. Is it the therapy that has you feeling down. I know some days on therapy day I would feel really down for needing therapy, but after I went, I always felt better.

Gentle Hugs to you.

Oh so sorry to hear that you are not feeling so good. Even I have had the same too. I know it can be hard. I too used to hate going for therapy. Sometimes I don't know what it was.

I know exactly what you mean. I feel secure in my own house and don't feel like going anywhere often. It comes and goes. Sometimes I feel a little better and I may 'force' myself to go somewhere, even though I don't want to. And to be honest, it doesn't make me feel any better, but I know it is a good thing to do.

For me, therapy day is a good day. Well, the therapy part is. I am always very anxious until the time I go. I like talking with my counselor though. It is the only time I get to express my feelings and thoughts and talk about me.

Does anything in particular have you down? Or youjust feel down?
 
I have both. Sometimes I am down because of a thought or something happens, but sometimes it is uncontrolable. I know how that is. And I don't feel like I can motivate myself to do anything because I just want to sleep and that's it. I guess I really think sleep is going to help or something. (never does though!)
 
Anyways, you are, obviously, not alone. Which I know you know. But, just to be reassuring, we are all in this together. I hope you can feel better. Keep us posted on how you are feeling.

I've also started not going out as much, but I think it's a bad thing. I'm going to speak to my doctor about it and maybe that's what you need to do as well. Staying home all the time just makes the anxiety worse.

Hey sweet pea! We all have good days and bad days and this is a bad day....so what?!? Is it that necessary to do anything today?? I have days when I don't want to do anything and daren't venture outside, but it's thinking time too! Use the day wisely with relaxation techniques that were on another post, do some therapeutic housework and email me if you need anything. Thinking of you hun xx

Thank you all for your responses and help.  A lot of it had to do with the going out for therapy - I was very anxious about it.  But the other big part is that is that I have been very down on myself lately - I just feel worthless and useless. My husband and kids would disagree with that.  But it's just how I feel.  I talked to my therapist about it yesterday and of course we did the CBT with all of my thoughts.  It helped , but I just have to remember to use them.  I have them written down so it will be easier to reference them.  I just want to stay isolated in my home where I'm safe.  Although I know it's not good, it's what I want to do.  This may sound silly but I may get brave and go out and work in my flower gardens.
 
Thanks again everyone.  :-)

Aha, your wrong, very wrong.  The last thing you are is worthless. You are a vibrant and caring individual with a disorder that you understand and know you have to work with to stay on top of  it.  You are already  seeing your therapist, your advocating for yourself.  You are coming here and posting. You are a Mother and a wife....................You are not worthless.  You are irreplacable.................((((((((((((HUGS))))))))))

Kitt,
 
I just love you!!  You are so positive and always know the right things to say.  You are so correct that I'm not worthless and useless.  My thinking is much better today after my therapy yesterday.  I told him exactly how I was feeling, including what I had posted.  So we started right in with the CBT - made me do the writing.  It took quite awhile, but I started feeling better. 
 
I am so glad that I joined this forum, everyone so optimistic or can relate somehow and in some way everyone wants to give everyone else a boost.  Everyone on this forum is wanted and needed.
 
Kitt, thank you so much for the big hugs - they were very much needed.
(((((((((((HUGS))))))))))))
 
 
Thank you.

I was just wondering, you mention 'CBT', could you explain to me what that means? I am just interested in ways to help myself. I see a counselor, but not a real therapist so she can't really help me as much, and we just talk so, I don't do anything other than talk therapy, but I would be very glad to learn new ways I could help myself and pass on to my counselor. Thanks.
