Is something wrong with me? :(

Posted , 7 users are following.

I had a job interview today and I've got a lot going on in my mind I got into town and just decided I didn't feel like I wanted to go for it and just walked straight past it and chilled in the town for a bit to pass the time. Just felt to stressed about things going on in my life but I feel like I've really let myself down sad I just don't have the motivation recently with what's going on. I feel so lazy and crap. Can anyone relate or help or cheer me up sad

    i think its all about confidence, dont beat yourself up about not making the interview but obviously something it making you feel this way go and see your doctor and maybe have some therapy

    If you do have anxiety/depression it does strange things to our heads

    Stay strongcheesygrin

      I have therapy starting on the 21st March. I've found out I'm about six weeks pregnant nd I'm young so my minds all over the place so it does make sense why I'm feeling so moody and fatigue a lot, stressed doesn't come close to how I'm feeling xx

    I have been feeling alot like this recently as well! After putting it off for some time I finally went to the doc to talk to her about anxeity. She gave me some meds and it just really didnt work out. My biggest problem is health anxeity. I decided that I should start facing my problems head on and that has seemed to help alot. I started going to the doctor/ dentist for regular check ups and it has helped to put my mind at ease.  All you need is a burst of motivation to face the thing that is holding you down. Once you do it you will see the positive results and hopefully in turn it will help you get out of this funk.

      I was on sertraline 50mg once it made me worse so I came off them better off without them. I will get that motivation back.. It's a lot of things going on and it's making me stressed maybe it's worth going to the doctor again but I have therapy starting soon so I'll give that a go first

      It's annoying isn't it. My health has never bothered me. But I'm pregnant I just found out I'm 18 and I'm stressing so much as I don't feel ready so stress isn't helping anyone really!

    Hi Katie,

    I have done the same in the past. It sounds like you're dealing with so much anxiety right now, that you're reaching a point where help may be needed. I see that you are seeking help and that's wonderful. I learned over the years dealing with my anxiety disorder that I use avoidance as a coping mechanism. Unfortunately, avoidance has a way of making things worse in the long run. It sounds to me that may be what you're doing. The prospect of the job interview perhaps was so stressful that you used avoidance to get a momentarily relief. Of course, now it's making you feel horrible. You're not a horrible and lazy person. Hang in there, and talk to your doctor about how you feel. Much love to you.

      Thank you for the reply. I know it's difficult. I have so much going on in my mind I feel I need to spend some time to myself I'm finding it hard to relax though! I feel guilty for having a lie down in the day and watching a film when I feel crap or something! And yes therapy starts soon. I was on medication but it wasn't for me sertaline make me worse

      I just started sertaline 4 days ago and it's making my anxiety worst at the moment. I was told that I should try to ride it out and that it will get better in a few weeks. You should still talk to your doctor, you may need a different medication. Try to accept that right now, you're not yourself, you have some issues that need treatment and like any patient recovering for any other ilness, you need to give yourself permission to take things easy for a while. If watching a movie and laying down in the afternoon makes you feel better, than don't second guess it. Also make sure that while you do that, you seek treatment from your doctor too. Sometimes, it can take a while to find the right meds, you just have to trust that your doctor will get there with you.

      yes, my mood and motivation is everywhere recently as I've just found out I'm

      Pregnant so my hormones are everywhere as it is so its normal to feel stressed and tired a lot. I may go back to the doctors yes and discuss different medications. I just feel like everyone looks at me like I'm lazy and a failure

    I feel like it's only recently I've accepted I have anxiety! I've been to the doctors and counselling before but not for very long period of time! I really want to try cbt- especially as I have had to stop my driving lessons because I get so nervous on big roads and I want to pass my test so badly!

    I can relate to you. This is part of depression and I know when i have a lot going on and I am stressed out I tend to do the same thing sleep and not go anywhere and stay home with my animals and not talk to anyone on the phone 

    It makes me feel even worse when i do nothing 

    Stress can do a lot on a body 

    Why don't you take some time to yourself get away for a while and relieve your stress take a vacation by yourself thats what i would do 

    I will keep you in my prayers and i hope you are feeling better 

    Stay positive and think of the good stuff in your life

      Thank you. Maybe getting away for a bit isn't a bad idea.. Thanks! I have family all over the place so that's not a bad idea at all. I spend way too much time wondering why I do the things I do and think the things I think. I have to think about myself and do what I feel is best for me though. Thank you I hope you feel better soon also x

    Hey Katie,

    It could just be the hormones because you're pregnant.

    Are you still feeling bad?

    Well I am truely sorry for how your feeling.  But by not going to your job interview, you didn't allow yourself accomplish a goal. This will have an effect on self esteem and thoughts. Best way to get over it is to reapply yourself to searching for applications and jobs.  Don't get stuck in feeling sorry for yourself, it is a trap.  Prove to yourself that you CAN do things by apply yourself to doing things you THINK you CAN'T do!
