DREADING ANOTHER YEAR OF THIS

Posted , 10 users are following.

I'm not excited for Christmas and certainly not happy to be entering another year of this misery. I don't have anything to celebrate so NYE parties & all this festive excitement has bypassed me completely. I don't care about any of it I'm sick of being unhappy, unstable, unmotivated, tired, angry, lonely & constantly on edge. No more meds or therapy or lifestyle changes I'm fed up of being me I just want to be someone else that has a simple happy life without having to battle with my own brain every single day. Struggling at work because I hate every second of being here but in so much debt I have no choice but to keep going even though I want to do nothing but sit in my room in my bed alone. Everyday feels like I'm trapped in a nightmare which is ironic because I don't sleep much because my brain is too loud. I'm just a mess and starting to think I always will be.

    Hi Yas,

    Try mindfulness and meditation to keep your mind in the present moment.

    Peace 🙏

      Thank you for your reply too Yasmine,

      I agree meditation is or can be fairly short lived however I have found 20mins morning and evening to be very helpful for my Chronic Anxiety.

      There is a great free, no ads app called Plum Village done by Thich Nhat Hanh's (Buddhist Monk) followers at their meditation retreat which is called Plum Village.

      Might be worth a revisit for you? , if not all the best anyway 🙂

      Peace 🙏

    you might not believe it, but you are better off going to work, than staying at home.

    you have to try to let go , also you are not alone, don't assume that everyone else has got it sorted

    this too will pass

    Hi it would be lovely to live a simple happy life wouldn't it, but I doubt anyone does unless they are a moron or something. Life isn't meant for that anyway and you would get tired of it in the end. Life is meant to be a struggle to find yourself and be the best version of you that you can.

    Life is also about change so make any changes that you can. I was often in a job I hated but had to stay so I got myself a great hobby which got me out and about socialising, so at least I was working for a purpose. x

    i would advise you speak to a doctor about how you feel? there is a lot of help out there, you have to go out and get it yourself unfortunately! even when we feel so bad

    maybe your sleeping problem is causing a lot of your horrible mood changes at work amd lack of motivation, there are some good natural sleep herbal tablets out there that can help

    i saw my psychiatrist and explained i havent slept properly in months and he prescribed me 2 weeks of tablets with tapered down ones for the second week to save your body getting accustomed,

    i had long 10 hour sleeps for 2 weeks after months of insomnia from (setraline)

    i felt my body reset

    also maybe you never found the right meds?

    good luck stay strong
