I am sliding and I don't know how to stop...

Edited , 2 users are following.

this hasn't got any to do with the coronavirus, i am slipping again and now i don't know what to do because you can't get hold of a doctor for love nor money. i don't know how to stop feeling like this and don't know what too depressed looks like. i just feel so sad. can anyone help?

    not sure where your located . your not alone. many areas have reported a rise in depression at this time and still offer hot lines for callers to talk to.

      hi hope4cure, i have just been handed a life line yesterday afternoon by someone who works for a mental health charity. it couldn't have come at a better time, i must have asked god the correct question as i prayed for support. it's not this virus that is making me so sad it's being ill, i have a stomach bug and sinus infection on top! i feel really off colour! hopefully they'll find a cure for this thing but i can't imagine it happening quickly!

    sorry doesn't explain why i am on here, i have had depression for lots of years, sometimes ill health gets to me s lot and not having support with the amount i have to put up with is not surprising. i also have additional stresses at the moment on top of PTSD. i just need support in general and am grateful these people are going to help me.

    hi Sam, it takes time to adjust . sometimes music, crafts, or anything you like to do or reading a good story. animals are very good with helping with stress and depression. so many things can help with moving foreword. exercise just a walk is calming. we all get in a funk and get stuck. take it one day at a time and be kind to yourself. what are some of the things you like to do to keep busy?

    hugs, Hope

    Sam you have a variety of things to do, your so lucky . it sounds like your a talented piano player. i wonder if your a classic or contemporary musician or both? its amazing how much better just a few things we have in life which bring peace and happiness and great coping skills . love kitties so comforting.

    i hope your feeling better soon as this corona can bring on stress, and in many cases by helping our neighbours safely has been helpful for so many. i am grateful for the many things that keep us safe thru a difficult and challenging time ahead for so many everywhere.

    stay safe and hugs to the kitties.

      hi one, i am grateful that there are things i can do, sometimes there are not enough hours in the day i find! my little cat is my saviour, without him i wouldn't cope at all, because alongside anxiety and depression i also have PTSD, which can drag your mood down completely. hope you're ok?
