So unhappy!

Posted , 4 users are following.

I've had CFS and depression for many years. Today was just a particularly bad day and so I thought I'd give forums a go. The final straw just now was going on snapchat and seeing dozens of videos of my friends all out together having a great time. Some where in nights out dancing, others were at a birthday party which I decided not to go to today. It's just suddenly seems so unfair that they can all socialise like normal people and have a great time and I have to lie in bed crying instead. I feel like people on here might understand.

It just makes me so unhappy!

    I do sooo much. I have had many problems for so long and am finally going to see a psychiatrist on Monday. I don't know if it is going to help, but the feelings of helplessness are getting overwhelming. YOU ARE NOT ALONE !!!  I don't know if I am ever going to come out of this. You have a friend.

    ememfred...you have to FORCE yourself to do things...until you start changing your mindset to looking forward to things vs. dreading them.

    Of course...medication made be needed for depression as well.

    You were invited to the party today.  I thought you were going to say that you were NOT invited..and then I would have felt WORSE for you than I do already.

    But, as soon as I read that you were "invited" I thought whew....and then I thought of all the times I was invited to things...didn't want to go...and then what happens...is people STOP inviting you.

    Actually, I don't get invited to much now....and as depressed as you are....if you lose every invitation as well...you will feel worse.

    Next invite...go ...even if you can only stay for an hour....

    Hi ememfred - sorry to read of your situation. You must feel very left out which wouldn't help yopur situation. Perhaps avoid snapchat while you take a leaf out of Stevens' book. You state you've had depression for many years. That is not normal and there is no reason you should continue to suffer. Finding a counsellor/psychologist/psychiatrist will help put things into perspective and you will have a safe place to talk out your issues. It's up to you - I'm sure your friends would not want you to feel this way.
