Feeling hopeless

Posted , 7 users are following.

I'm feeling pretty low again. Some times I feel ok and others I just get so low and I don't know why. 

I feel hopeless like life will be like this forever. The only reason why I get up in the morning Is for my children. If it wasn't for them and my partner I don't know where I would be. Sorry for the moan.

    I can relate. I don't have a partner and children to get up for though.

      Thanks - I'm ok. I am better during the week when I'm at work so I have to get up. I've spent time with my mum this weekend so that's been nice. I used to work weekends too but I think I burnt myself out earlier this year so I'm trying to take it easy but keep going too - trying to find the right balance. It's so hard. 

      I feel so sad at the moment. I am getting myself to the gym and work which is good. I'm filling my body with rubbish food though so I know that doesn't help. 

      I need to contact the doc to get my thyroid levels checked as it has been a few months since I had that and my iron levels checked.

    You're definitely not alone. I sometimes don't get up till lunch time. Husband and adult kids are out at work and sometimes think what's the point. Normally I'd be up and about around 7.30am. Shower, hair done and make up on, meet up with a couple of friends 2 or 3 times a week, light lunch good old natter and shop for a couple of hours, then home and cook dinner.

    Every so often my anxiety takes over and I don't go out, can't be bothered about my

    appearance and doss around in pjs watching tv 24/7. Can last from a couple of days to a week. If you can accept that some days will be better than others it may help. You don't say if you are taking any meds at all.  Anti-depressants can be helpful and along with counselling or CBT or both can change your life and the opportunity to enjoy your children and the start of a new life. Hope you go on ok.

      Thank you. I used to be up by 8am like you all showered and ready to go. Since having my son 3 months ago I've just lost the will. I used to shower everyday now sometimes i go 3/4 days which i hate. I don't really bother with how i look, none of my clothes fit as lost 20lbs in the last 12 weeks though not wanting to eat. 

      Im not on meds but have had CBT but unfortunetly it didn't work. I think i might just have to accept that i will have good and bad days. Hope things are ok for you  xx

    Hello from another Anne.  I feel the same whether on anti depressants or not.  Up and down, up and down.  Mornings always bad.  Don't sleep very well.  Yup hopeless.  I've been like this for over 20 years.  Not as bad as it was, but still get low.

    I think it is probably common with depression.  I live alone, and am elderly, so I try to keep myself occupied as best I can.  Hate being in alone. 

    You carry on moaning, as we all want a moan too.  Let us support each other.

      Thank you. Its normally morning and evening for me, or all day like today. Not sleeping very well doesn't help i don't think, i have that problem as well. My mind just doesn't seem to want to shut down. 

      It does help having people i can talk to. Hope your ok today x
