Hi there Unplugged,
Welcome to Healing Well, you have come to a very good place. The members here are wonderful.
I can understand how you feel, I live in a very disfunctional small town. The people here have no respect for nature and all they do is drink and other things. I can't say what they are on here. But I, like you, get very frustrated with them so I stay away from them. I too, love to paint and do other crafts. That is what keeps my sanity, though I am very fortunate, I live at the north end of town and have enough property to be able to enjoy nature. Behind me is all state land and I can go for walks in the woods and enjoy all of the beautiful natural things that the Lord has to offer me.
I too have isolated myself and spent days in bed. That is a phase that we go through, but in the meantime we are missing out on a lot of living. We have a right to be happy. So don't stay in bed too long. Your life keeps going on even though you are sleeping. You deserve to live, just like everybody else. So I hope that you seek the help that you need soon so you can get on with your life.
Have you ever painted when you feel this way? It is said that some of the best art work comes from being depressed, it is a way of expressing your feelings and you would be suprised what all you can do even when you are feeling down. So get those paints out and see what happens.
Most of all, keep posting, I go through the same thing that you do with people, there was a point where I dispised them. But I realized that it only caused me frustration and anger and I didn't deserve to feel that way. So I stopped hating.
I sure hope that you feel better soon. And as was said above, talk to your doctor about it.
I hope that this helped some, keep posting.
Luv and hugs, Karen
