Help , feel so desperate

Posted , 3 users are following.

I know I keep moaning on here , but here goes ;

I feel so down , useless , pointless . I have been like this before but wasn't in a job then . I've been signed off work after not doing my job well . I'd started to feel bad before it was noticed at work I'm really worried about my job , my child as well . I have no motivation to do anything at all I feel so trapped.

I was in a realsionship but that started to go bad , he now has someone else & I wish I didn't know that . It was me whom ended things but it appears he'd already met this new woman .

Weekends are hard as my son is alway 'what are we doing today?' I just have nothing in me to even think of things today never mind do them , HELP

    Hey Lucy,

    don't give up on yourself. We all feel useless and have no motivation at times, it's part of the condition. I found focusing on something good is helpful, for example, your son. Just take each day at a time and give yourself so time. Have you seen your go?? Are you on meds??

    destrain by relax/wiggle ears and brow. try being a little more open to being dependant with kids like maybe being honest wit kids about desperation is perfectly healthy; irony builds character. dont let factors imact freetime. when i was a kid i remeber being mysteriously disatisfied when all i rly needed was an authentic role model cool

      Hi Lucy, I really feel for you, its an awful illness, I'm 4 weeks on meds now, and its hard to belive only 2 weeks ago I was just like you, infact I was worse!

      Carry on with the meds, another week aNd you will feel a huge difference, then another week after that, you will be even better, not 100% but you will function , and smile and have some motivation.

      Plz plz be strong and persevere. I know yor child is only 10 mine is 11, they don't understand it, but explaining it the best you can will help you a nd your child.

      All th re best x

      My mum wants to pay for me to see someone private , as I seem to have a pattern of being very active (possibly manic) in the months before I get like this . I've been relatively ok for around 5 years but here I am back down here again & feel so desperate

      She does try to help out where she can , not always in the right way but her heart is in the right place .

      I will take this opportunity & hopefully it will send me on the right path , it's just so all consuming right now , wish I could just think of other things .

      Hope you are on the road to recovery

      Even through my darkest days, I hated being alone, everyone is different, I get scared alone for some reason. I was suicidle at the beginning! I just need to stop the thoughts, its,what anxiety does, anxiety is,awful, cant be cured with meds, but depression can!
