(A BIT OF A LONG ONE )
So today I'm not feeling to anxious although I would be lying if I said I don't feel a bit sick in my stomach with stuff I'm trying not to think about......
I wanted to talk about DEPRESSION as I have been reading and showing support on a few profiles since I joined about a week ago. What I have come to realises is how much there is a common denominator/similarity with us all. (My opinion of cause) I know it affects us differently by cause and I mean you can get or give advice but what is good for one is not good for another. (I here you say but that's common sense) but is it!!!!!!
i have spoken to many people over the years running many support groups when I was in my prime and if you even speak with your doctor, they say talk to your friends and family..maybe start a hobby.... But it doesn't take away what your feeling or the rut that caused the anxiety in the first place and it is this, that we all unite in
NOTHING TAKES AWAY WHAT WE FEEL DOWN INSIDE.
For me it doesn't take much for me to panic, waking up and falling a sleep on depression and I'm seeing it more and more.... My depression is a lot to do with the system and being trapped in it… but mainly what I have lost and the many times I have had to start again and again. Just feel lost as to where to start and no more energy you know…..
So I thought I would talk about a few points on coping with depression
: If talking to someone helps you…. talk and talk to you feel better
: if listening to music or reading helps then do it
: if crying helps then do it (try not to do it alone)
: if finding that hobby helps then go for it
Whatever it takes!!!! start looking at coping mechanisms I guess is what Im saying and I'm doing it…….it isn't easy I know, I have been writing lists of what I want to do.
For example that is one of my coping strategies: writing down how s***t I feel… What are my issues and looking at if I can truly change them. If I can't I leave it alone and move on to the next one… until I can cope. (I here you say life doesn't always give you that choice to leave it) I have a major issue coming up that I cannot avoid, but what I'm doing is only thinking about that one thing… I call it BITE SIZE CHUNKS it's sort of been helping….
Bottom line we are not alone in this
Feel free to add a coping mechanism below, you never know how much it can help us all…
Let's get this depression BEAT bless you all
