Bored With Everything

Hi everyone,

I am a singer whom has been pursuing this career for 13 years since I was 15 and still my life is so ordinary I dont have a record dral yet or a production team and not having a career making a living with what I chose as a profession makes me very frustrated, annoyed and very bored with life I dont have any interest in talking to people I think is no fun pointless conversations, Im always moving from Orlando to NY and I dont have friends I dont like going out trying to make friends either or date. I worked as a Secretary, waitress, receptionist and financial advisor lastly 2 weeks as a stripper and sadly I enjoyed the money that if I go back to that life it will pay for music video and production. I dont know what to do to cheer me up and stay positive and motivated last summer I went to Miami and smoked a lot of weed and my life was a lot of enthusiam and things actually happened now Im home with my mom in the same room having to look for people to sale insurance riding to see her friends and church every week and no entertainment or career. Im thinking about going back to ny to dance but just the thought of seeing my mom worried and unhappy makes me sad as well. Thank you I had to vent my dark thoughts I apologize for sharing this sad feelings.

    Hi Robin, the fact that things improved when you were smoking weed suggests clinical depression, as cannabis stimulates serotonin production, and would have helped with the serotoninn shortfall associated with depression. 

    It's not a good idea to continue to self medicate with cannabis though, for all sorts of reasons. Go to your GP, who can prescribe an antidepressant for you - they work by stopping your body destroying the serotonin your brain is producing. Well, the ones most commonly prescribed do (SSRIs). You'll probably find things improve in a matter of weeks. Fingers crossed eh?

    First of all from experience, you are obviously suffering from depression. You are now 28 years old and have no real direction in life which is sad. You might be surprised what might come of attempting to go out and socialise. Especially if you tried going to clubs where other singers hang out. I can tell you one thing - smoking weed isn't going to answer your problems.

    As for your mum, surely she wants to see you happy. Going back to dance would be a good thing for you as they say that physical expression can help overcome depression. You make no mention of seeking medical help and this would be a good idea so consider it.

    Hi Robin,

    I'm sorry to hear that you are in a "funk" at the moment but you have come to the right place to vent your thoughts and find support. It sounds like you have a special gift of music and dance, a gift to make others happy. I wish your gift was giving you some joy at the moment. The music & entertainment business must be a very competitive place to be. With all your travelling you must have made some good connections in the business though. Please don't give up on your dream. I'm sure that you can fulfil your ambitions and potential and still make your Mom proud :-)

    Good luck! Hugs xx
