Feeling depressed for weeks and don’t know what to do???

Posted , 5 users are following.

hey everyone, so for the past few weeks iv been feeling at an all time low! at first i thought it was pms but then it never went away!! if im not crying im a ball of rage, i dont want to leave my house, i dont want to see anyone or do anything and every morning i wake up hoping that i have a good day and hope to feel normal again but like today iv woke up from a great sleep feeling more exhausted than i did going to bed, i feel in such a bad mood and i cant wait for work to be over and can come home to bed and shut myself away! i used to love my job and all of a sudden i hate it and just wish something would happen that i could have some time off to get myself back together!! i keep putting off going to the doctors as i feel like i have no reason to be feeling the way im feeling and they wont help or they will just pan me off with tablets when i just want to feel myself again by myself without putting stuff into my body! any advice or even someone who feels the same and would be up for speaking about it would be amazing!!!

    You should definitely see the doctor. Don't underestimate the value of medicine - depression is a sickness and needs medical treatment. I've been feeling exactly same way you do for a good couple of months last year and tablets helped me to feel more myself again. You can try and talking therapy as well if you think it might help you, but first you should speak to your GC and they will advise what's the best course of action in your case. Depression is an illness and can be cured, trust me. Good luck x

      its so horrible feeling this way!! i think the reason im so funny about going down the medication route is my mum suffers really bad mentally and they never done her any good but shes just recently been diagnosed with bipolar so they did say that could have big impact as to why no medication worked! i used to struggle to talk about how i felt as due to previous issues it was made out to be a bad thing to feel down in anyway but iv opened up a bit and i do like talking about how i feel but i feel like no matter how much i speak about it ill probably still feel like this! i just wish i could wake up and feel like myself again! thanks so much xx

    based on the limited context of your symptoms, it could possibly be that your nervous system has been exhausted, also known as fatigue. it would be recommended to take time to exercise, healthy diet, rest physically and mentally, and manage stress, its important to listen to your body , don't try to force your body to be the way you want it to be, also is there any trauma or something of that sort before your symptoms began?

      Ah we all do it and bury painful feeling and events putting off dealing with them. The trouble with that is they keep popping their heads up again and again until you put them to rest.

      Eventually they overwhelm you and your mind and body feel the strain resulting in depression and anxiety. Even if you don't want meds how about seeing a therapist to deal with past issues. x

    Hello, my sister has recently been through something similar, like heavy constant PMT that wont pass. She felt like she was having a breakdown and was affecting her work badly. She told the doctor all this and was referred to a Psychiatrist who listened and prescribed her Metazapine which took all the rage n suicidal anxiety away.....worth a go on some meds because it sounds like you need some help and if you tell the doctor all of what you said or even write it all down I'm sure they will do something about it, its badly affecting your quality of life and work and you shouldn't have to be feeling like this all the time. Keep us posted on how you get on please, God bless you xxxxxxx
