If it wasnt for my ds i truely would not see any point of my existence.
Feel numb and detached from life.

Me too. Which doesn't help you at all I know! thanks

IamMissRabbit flowers !
Sorry to hear you feel the same.
Have been feeling like this for a while. Just so.... tired & down and blurgh. Just getting through each day waiting for the next one.
Trying to have fun is too much hard work as is talking to people.

Both of you...

The days are getting longer..... the sun setting later every day. It is a bit of a drag for the next few weeks but spring is comming....

Even if you don't experience full blown SAD... Mid Winter is a bad time for many... (including me) but it does pass. If you csn.. just get outside when the sun shines and soak in the light. It helps a bit...

Please keep posting and happy new year...😀

Good advice. I am feeling similar just now. Really struggling, but the difference this time is i am able to hold onto the idea that i have been here before and it does get better. i can say i know it will get better and i actually believe it, which i hope is a good sign that i am not in so deep.

Have been holding on to these thoughts today thank you for your comments.
Sorry you are feeling the same, i find the aftermath of Christmas exacerbates it somewhat dont you think? Have decided its best for me to go back on my ADs 2016 is going to be a tough year, hopefully with a better outcome though just need to hang on in there.

You can get better but you may need help. That could be medication, CBT or time to do things just for you. Good luck.

Thanks Wolfiefan
I gave just started CBT too so going to see how that works.
I feel i need to work through things that happened in my childhood though not sure how to get help with that. It keeps bothering me.
Also feel alone right now not sure who i can reach out too.

' Have' not gave

Wolfiefan Sat 02-Jan-16 00:24:36

CBT can really help. I'm sure they can also refer you on if necessary. You aren't alone. Many people have been where you are now (but got much better!)

Sorry you are feeling so low.
Sounds like it could be disassociation, I get the bubble feeling, bit like everything is out of reach and separate, mines linked to childhood stuff and PTSD, can you see a doctor to revise or look at medication?

Sorry I hijacked your post earlier, your words just struck such a cord (sp. chord?!). Yes def try CBT, I struggled with it tbh, just the reliving of the past brought up painful emotions, but I know it really helps s lot of people. And try the ADs, although be aware that at the moment you're numb and the ADs will bring emotions back which is difficult st the start but is def a step in the right direction. I always think that the first step to solving ANY problem is recognising that there is a problem. Small steps though yeah xx

I feel the same. I work SO hard not to be critically depressed all the time, that it has turned into a full time job with no energy for anything else. Hiding it from everyone all the time, trying to keep up some semblance of normality, not weighing people down by telling them how I really feel, it's shattering. I just want to sleep all day long. The only point is my DC.

Thank you for your comments all, i hope you are all feeling ok today. Guess its one of those horrible symptoms that go with depression.
Sometimes i wonder though, have i actually got depression or is it the bastards around me that cause the issue. But thats another story!

Dancingduck - completely relate to what you said i thought it was just me.
