Unbearable

Posted , 7 users are following.

I'm feeling so so depressed this week, and yesterday evening it all got so much worse. I'm home alone this weekend and everything is just too much. I've nobody I can talk to about this until Monday. The pain is just indescribable. Don't know what to do. Can't put it into words

    Hi thanks for your reply. I do have a tv yes, I'll try watching something.

    I have various mental health issues, and a difficult situation where nobody in my family knows of my problems. I do have my psychiatrist and other mental health team members though.

    I thought about calling the crisis number to talk things through with someone, but I'm only really comfortable talking details with my people who know me.

    I hope you have some support you're able to access.

      hi inmate88.

      i know you've said you only feel comfortable talking to people who know you but i've talked to the crisis team before, got a lovely woman who sat and chatted to me for ages and in a way it brought me comfort knowing that this person doesn't know me, can't prejudge me and yet will sit here talking to me for as long as i need them.

      I really do highly recommend you give them a try.

      sometimes it is better talking to someone who only knows you over the phone.

      best of luck

    Hi Inmate,I know exactly how you feel. It's so hard to describe it. I have had hypomania with low mood last two days. I can't concentrate on TV when I'm like this. I had to force myself to do a bit of house chores. It will pass but in the meantime I will always listen. Best wishes X

    I'm sorry you are not doing so good. Try to hang in there. You don't have a crisis line you can talk to do you or have you ever tried the nami hotline if you need someone to talk to look up the number and call them

    Try to keep busy. I know it's hard but try and engage in exercise. Maybe an online meditation group or something. Just to get you interacting with others and keep your kind off of negative thoughts.

    I'm using an apple app called headspace. You can interact with others as well as have an online counsellor and time meditations and so forth. It's only free for a limited time though but I've heard there's many useful apps

    I'm feeling very depressed too and it's hard to describe how low I feel, I know that doesn't help your situation, but just thought it might help I'm some small way to know you're not the only one going through this right now

      Heya Laura, I'm glad I was able to bring some comfort to you knowing that you're not the only one going through this right now. It's so unbearably hard isn't it, and so hard to put into words just how painful and distressing it is, most days I just want to stay in bed all day, but manage to get up around 2pm.

      Do you have anyone supporting you through it? And are you taking any medication and/or receiving any therapy? I'm 33 and did live alone but I've come back to stay with my parents. I take escitalopram 15mg for depression and anxiety and also just started quetiapine for the obsessive thoughts I get as part of OCD, I also take lorazepam for anxiety x
