feeling low

Posted , 1 user is following.

I have continued to feel very low over last week or so.I have no motivation which was very unlike me before.housework,the garden,my appearance have all become a burden to maintain,because I cant face going out I have put weight on so all my clothes are too tight.My husband has run out of patience with me,all in all life is very bleak,I only go on for my daughter doing her gcses.After that if I still feelthis awful I dont know what reason to live I will find.Of course I couldnt do that to my family but theres precious little here to keep me going,I feel unbearably sad

    Hi Jo this is just to say that you are not alone in feeling low. I have felt very low and have been in that dark place that you describe. There are people on these boards 24/7 so in some way somebody is always here to try to support and help you. Yes it is frustrating putting on weight but when you are feeling better you will lose it again. Is there any way that you could have some girly time with your friends or go get your hair done or manicure. I know it wont take the depression away but it might help to lift your mood a little. I have kept a diary in the past and written poetry to get the feelings out.

    Hi pooh bear

    I have had my hair done and early in this hideous episode cleaned the whole house,sorted out my clothes,bought new makeup etc but now I feel like I have come full circle and am stuck in a deep hole feeling really fat and ugly and incapable of giving or receiving love.I managed better when i felt nothing,at least then i could focus on things and motivate myself.I dont really have any friends as such,going out leaves me in a cols sweat,im failing fast

    Dear Jo please contact your CPN or psychiatrists secretary in the morning. Tell them how you feel. Your medication should be kicking in now and you shouldn't be feeling this low. I'm sorry and I'm sending you a big hug. Pooh.

    thanks for post,I actually felt better yesterday,CPN came and thought I was more animated.She was sure I was still anxious like this just before the venlafaxine kicked in,it was just a shame I had to switch to reboxetine because of the shaking,as I has to bstart at square one again.The anxiety comes and goes,I have no motivation still but feel things may start to improve.Hows the withdrawal going?
