Afraid and alone in the dark

Postby Jess17 » Thu Mar 15, 2018 12:07 am

This is my first ever post here and I'm embarrassed to reach out to total internet strangers for help.
I've suffered with treatment resistant major recurrent depressive disorder since I was 11. I'm much older now. Last year was possibly the worst year ever for me. I thought with all my tools and resources I'd be ok. I'd fight thru it like I always do. But for the past four months I can't shake it. No matter what I do or what trick I use I never feel better. I feel hopeless and run down. Like I'm out of gas. I just can't anymore. I don't know how to keep fighting.

Take a Solid Food Vacation, or simply get on the Road to Wellville. In other words, your health very probably is keeping you down, and there is a way up.

if there is nothing you know what to do go for a walk, that is what i do when i feel lost, i go for walk, i may stop for a drink, i may invite someone i know

try not to be depeded on just one "friend" he/she may decide not to go out any longer and you will be left alone, so you better keep more options for oneself so you become less depended on a single person

i always hated the moments i wanted to go out and my "best friend" rejected and had noone else to call

you got to have more options and that comes as a result of keeping ppl in touch and not ignore them just because you going out with someone at a moment, he may be gone one day

write quick short msg-s to ppl you know around you, keep your relationships warm so you have it easier to go out with someone when you want to

about the fear, there will be fear because you are unsure what you doing , you are lost, its really that simple

but when you know exactly what you doing There will be no fear

you will have your own ideas how to spend your time, if you want to work, if you want to rest, if you wanto go out, play games, you have your ideas and how you manage your life
