How can I stop feeling like this?

Posted , 5 users are following.

I know it's not as simple an answer, but does anyone have any advice for how I can stop feeling so low?

I have an anxiety disorder so I think that it's making my current situation worse. Basically, at this current moment in my life I feel...lost? I don't know what the right word is.

My friends have all gone to university and we rarely talk anymore, I have my boyfriend which I'm so greatful for. However, I've been feeling so rubbish that I just feel numb. When I'm with my boyfriend I'm happy but not in the same way I was before. It's not a problem with the relationship, trust me i've had many cases of failing relationships and this isn't one of them, i love this guy. It's me. 

When i'm at home, I don't find anything I normally do fun anymore. For example, i used to be quite happy watching netflix, reading, playing guitar, even just sitting outside. I used to be happy doing all those things. But now anything I do doesn't make me happy. I have no motivation to do anything. I don't even have the motivation to go to the doctors. I feel so pathetic for that.

I feel so numb and low and just generally really rubbish. I don't really know what i'm hoping to hear but does anyone have any advice? I'm sorry if the above didn't make any sense...

    Hi becky

    i am new to this site, and I really know how you are feeling, I am reading a book by Lucinda Bassett from pier to panick, I have suffered a few times with depression and anxiety so I do know how you feel  , try to take each moment at a time and keep saying to yourself I will get better

      i'd say feeling like i don't exist anymroe is a pretty acurate way of describing it. I do work, but not much as i'm struggling to cope with work as well as college. I'm doing a foundation at college instead of uni, i've met some nice people there but i wouldn't call them friends. I think my friends leaving triggered it but i'm just feeling so uselss and unmotivated...i need to spice up my life but dont know how basically haha xx

    Hi, Becky...What you are describing is more depression than anxiety.  Please see a doctor asap and get some meds for your condition.  It may only get worse if you let it take over your life.  I've been there, and I am speaking from experience...Hugs and God bless....

    Becky you are describing depression, which is an illness. Your GP can help with advice and provide you with options on how to overcome it. Depression can be measured and this will ensure things are taken seriously. In the first instance get support from loved ones by regulalrly talking about how you are feeling. Depression not only affects the individual but the people around us. There is great help available and your doctor will give you the best advice. Be kind to yourself.
