General loss of...everything?

Posted , 5 users are following.

I know my depression has days where it gets downright awful. There's days where it borders on the lines of suicidal, I'd say. (Though I would never consider doing something like that. I'm too scared to.)

But lately it seems it's...gotten worse? I don't have any urges to do anything. Even when it comes to basic bodily functions. My appetite for example is near non-existent (but when I do eat it's an excessive amount, even if I don't feel hungry I eat as though I'd been starved.) I have no 'feelings' of when to 'go', no interest in things I used to like (I write and draw a lot, though it seems my muse for these things has deteriorated lately. I get stupidly insecure too, like I'm "not good enough", which also affects this.)

Past the symptoms that flare up with my anxiety and vitamins, I just don't...feel like anything. Occasionally I get the overwhelming urge to cry for no reason, but I can't even do that when it happens. If anything, that's the only urge I get.

Does depression really do this? And past anti-depressants, how can someone make it better?

    Definitely sounds like depression. I've suffered with depression and anxiety for several years and stopped all meds about two years ago. I still get depressed every day, but I try to do things like writing and playing games on the computer. Doing those things keeps my mind focused so that I don't let things that bring me down take over my mind. I have felt suicidal, and I've always talked myself out of it, by knowing that tomorrow might be the day that everything gets better.

      Try not to totally discount medication. It can really give you the kick up the backside. I would visit your GP., tell them how you feel and take it from there. Excercise and music really help me. If you listen to the words of some songs they can resonate with you and realise a lot of people feel down. Listen to I can't get no satisfaction by the Rolling Stones and see what I mean.

    Yes, depression really does do all of that, and more. I've had depression and anxiety for many years, and one thing is for certain, it comes and goes as it pleases.
