26 year old female - Depression

Posted , 5 users are following.

Hi everyone,

Every day when I wake up, I have a feeling of dread for the day ahead.

i suffer with anxiety and depression, and more recently insomnia which is quite literally sucking the life out of me.

I have been seeing a therapist every couple of weeks, which does help to a degree, but I feel so alone with my mental illness, although in a 4 year stable relationship.

I honestly don't know what to do anymore, waking up every day and pretending i'm okay when i'm not.

I cry all the time and feel helpless in front of

my partner, who I have been keeping awake during my insomnia.

I just need advice and someone to talk to.

Thank you

    You have someone to talk to your partner. Some times we think that how could i tell them this or that, but if you love someone and they feel the same to you, you can slowly tell them how it all started, and you get a cuddle while talking

    I'm afraid we don't get cuddles from therapists.

    Crying is part of the recovery process, we must cry to get the pain and tension out, you will after time know when to stop crying because you will have realized you have let it go.

    Let it out.

    Have to accept the fact what have happen (me being scammed) coz by accepting instead of thinking why happen to me? Why make such stupid and grave mistake? It will never help end up will worsen our condition. Accept it, apologize to the person if we have done it and have hurt him/her. Let love one know how you feel, let them know you need their help, care & concern.
