Feeling so down

Posted , 5 users are following.

So I have ocd, anxiety and depression and have been diagnosed with them for a long time. With my depression being very low I attempted to kill myself before and I had lots of suicidal thoughts. I am much better now, with therapy and medication I am recovering and doing well and I have been feeling good and happy. 

The past few days have been awful, I do not know if it’s pms, I am due on my period but I still haven’t got it yet, I’m on the pill. I am just really really low and I feel like how I felt before, it’s like I’ve taken 100 steps back. I know you can have your bad days but I’ve never experienced it as bad as I am now. Maybe it just is the pms but I honestly have never got this sad before because of a period, I’m feeling depressed and irritated, for no reason at all!!! 

This is why it is irritating me because there is no cause for this, it has come out of the blue. Do you think it is just pms and my hormones flying everywhere? Please let me know as I am very upset at the moment, thank you.

    Hi Leah.

    How long have you been feeling better for? Is this your first PMS cycle since doing better? 

    If so it really could be those hideous female hormones going crazy! It effects me too. I have a horrendous days when my PMS hits and I think I’ve gone back to square one! 

    Try and relax and indulge in self care as much as you can. 

    I truly hope it passes since you’ve been doing so well. 

    Sending love and strength xx

    Leah, Sorry to hear you are feeling so low. I obviously can't compare myself to your situation with regards to the pms.... But I have had these same serious knock back days too. Currently sat here waiting for my 11.45 appointment with my therapist.

    Wish I could make things better for you and bring some positivity and happiness back.... As I wish I could for myself. Stay strong Leah and take care love. We will beat this!! x

    Pms affects my anxiety and depression really badly. Try and stay active even if it's just a walk around the block to get the endorphins pumping,the fresh helps with mood boost as well also be mindful of what you're eating as if it's too sugary you could be experiencing crashes.
