Struggling being alone

Posted , 6 users are following.

Hi, I am really struggling with depression and anxiety at the moment. I am feeling so alone, and don't have anyone to talk to. I have suffered with depression and anxiety all my life, and still have bad episodes even though I try and avoid my triggers, take my medication and try and exercise.

At the moment I can't concentrate on anything, can't sleep, can't eat and my head hurts! I just can't deal with feeling like this anymore! It's driving me mad. I just want to sleep forever.

    Hi my love, I am going through the exact same thing. Sleeping seems to be my only out of this, my head hurts constantly I can barely sleep yet I'm tired all the time! I am unable to concentrate or remember anything and it's just getting harder. Comforting knowing I'm not alone!! You can direct message me if you'd like to talk about anything, I'm here for you

    Hi Emma,

    Sorry to hear that you are struggling!  It sounds like you are having a tough time at the moment.  Just wondered if you have spoken to your GP rececently?  Maybe talk through with him/her about what is currently going on for you?  Maybe you could explore via your GP what mental health services are available to you?  Whether it be "Talking Therapies / IAPT" or a Community Mental Health Team.

    Good luck - Shaz :-)

    EMMA I totally understand how you feel.

    I have no friends.

    My family live miles from me .

    Every night I sit here alone and cry just for company
