how i feel
Monday, July 23, 2012
Lately i have been really deopressed. I feel like i am reaching out for help and i am not getting what i need. Doesn't anyone understand how bad i feel? Donesn't any care? I am so tired of people telling me to snap out of it or get over it. Don't they realize that doesn't help. Why can't they just listen to me and understand what i am going through. I wouldn't wish this on my worst enemy. If i had a choice i wouldn't choose to feel like this. I am tired both emotinally and physically. Some thing has to change i can't live like this anymore. I feel like this just keep getting worse as the days go by. Does anyone have any suggestions on what works for them when they feel like this? How do people deal with feeling unwanted and like they don't fit in anywhere? I feel like an outcast.

Maybe you are depressed thats a medical need for attention if you can feel it in your body. Trust in others like counsolors or doctors or therepists even this site. Its harder when your close ones dont understand. So right now you come first. No matter what try to get as much sleep, eat superfoods that will help your slump. Also, get your thyroid check it could be a thyroid thing. That happend to my cousin. Take a 20 minute walk in the sun with sunscreen at get vitamin D. That will help it wont cure but it will help. You can get out of this.

Hey Sunshine! I'm sorry to hear about what you're going through. I know a lot of folks out there don't understand depression or the struggles people have inside. My mother and my husband are the people closest to me, and they both suffer from depression. There have been times where it seemed no matter what I did or said, I couldn't make things better. It's hard for me sometimes as an outsider to truly grasp how heavily their depression affects them. Perhaps the folks in your life are similar? I know just from my experiences with my family, particularly with my husband, that depression is very real, very serious, and more than anything else, the one who is depressed just needs reassurance and love from the people closest to them.
I was reading the comments from the other ladies on SP....and they all are so incredibly supportive. I think you've made a great step in being part of this community. Everyone really seems to look out for each other, and I think we all truly care for one another as well. Hopefully, being here surrounded by people who do care about you will help you to feel more supported. :)
Very big (((hugs))) to you. I'm sorry you're having a rough patch. :(

I don't want you to think that anyone here is saying to just "snap out of it". I want you to know that feeling depressed like this takes time to conquer. But as you said in your post, something has to change. Have you figured out what you think is causing your depression? If you have thought through this and come up empty, it could be something physical that you are unaware of.
I have had some serious boughts of depression in the past--sometimes it was a major life change, and most recently it was a physical problem. I'm getting help now and I feel much better. With the major life change, I had to struggle to get out of that slump, too. In either case, I had to make a conscious decision about what I wanted, or needed to do to feel better that day. Do you have a regular bed-time? Do you take a walk every day? Do you drink enough water each day?
Sometimes those very easy, simple things can have a profound effect on our moods and how we look at life. You say that you're tired of feeling this way, that you don't want to feel this way anymore. Please believe me that I'm saying this with all the love, and care, and concern I have in my being: you are the one that has control over how you feel. You are the only one who can decide to live a healthy life, or get outside in the sunshine for a walk, or go to bed instead of watching one more tv show. You want to feel different, so you need to figure out what to do differently. I know--I've been there.
We want you to succeed. We want you to feel happy! We want you to feel our love! Please believe us! We care about you! We are here for you! When you have any success, we will cheer you on! When you feel blue again, we will be here to pump you up, and remind you of your goals.

I have dealt with similar issues. Sometimes.. as much as we want to depend on those in our lives to make us feel wanted and accepted.. it doesn't always happen. I am still struggling.. but once I decided that I was going to do everything I could to make myself happy and to build up my own self worth.. that is when I started to feel better. I still have really bad days. But I just keep on picking myself back up. Keep sparking.. that is where I get almost all of my support. Encourage others and you will also be encouraged. Hang in there!

Hi Sunshinegirl. I am sorry to hear you are feeling this way. I can't say I know how you feel but I can relate and say I have had similar feelings. Sometimes the solution is to find out what is making you feel like this and its not easy. For me it was a simple as setting unrealistic goals in everything I did and never feeling accomplished. If you can set small tasks to accomplish and feel good about accomplishing them this small thing will help to boost your mood, and then you can increase your tasks and therefore your mood. It sounds like you might be going through a depression and no depression is not always a chemical imbalance within a person, it can be life events that cause unhappiness. I wish you much luck, success and Happiness. I'm not sure if I was any help to you but I wanted you to know that there are people who understand and definitely care, some close to you may not understand but I believe they still care. If you ever need to talk or anything feel free to email me. Good luck Hun!!!
