Feeling so low today(19 Posts)
Not sure why I'm posting really. Just having a really down day today.
Have a few health concerns (not corona related) that I've been putting off for a while but starting to worry now. Feeling not quite right.
So saddened and frustrated by all the terrible things going on in the world. Have had a few disagreements with people about certain political things and have muted a few chats today just because I can't be bothered with anymore negativity and rows.
I feel so lethargic and tired even though I've slept well this weekend. My mental health is shot to shit and just feel meh.
Sorry for the rambling pointless post! Anyone else down in the dumps today?
Well not today but I was earlier in the week. Everything seemed totally meaningless and I simply felt numb and was doing everything in a daze.
Today I'm at the other extreme and feel really angry at everything and seem to be full of energy albeit of the negative type!!
Me too. Struggling to find the joy in life as it currently is. So much worry.
Feels like it’s going to squash me.
I'm like this some days and what helps me is turning the phone off and stepping away from all technology, making myself a wee picnic and going for a drive/walk/cycle to get fresh air and clear the head. I do really really have to push myself to do it though
I’ve being down in the dumps for weeks to be honest! It’s all just shit at the moment OP isn’t it. I’ve stopped reading all those annoying ‘be kind and stay positive’ type posts on FB, they started giving me serious rage!
I have decided to get out walking by myself tomorrow. I was making the mistake of going with my teens everyday so it was just a walking fight as opposed to the usual argument at home!
So take time for yourself if you can. Hugs to you, hopefully we are nearing the end of this craziness.
I felt like this earlier this week too I could barely muster up a conversation I was just done with everything. I've perked up a bit this weekend though. Made sure I've got out for some walks. Switching off from social media/muting negative convos for a bit is a good idea. Nothing wrong with taking a break from the world right now. It's seriously draining at the moment
And on the days I can't push myself I make nice food, read a book and try to occupy myself at home doing things that aren't stressful.
If I need to have a couch day I will xx
Please make a telephone appt with your GP. I was putting a couple of things off - not wanting to "bother" the GP - but have had one phone appt and another problem dealt with by email with the assurance that appts at the surgery are available if necessary.
I feel your pain, OP, I am having a bad day too.
Over half of my team has been made redundant this week and I have spend most of it trying to pick up the pieces.
Now it's the weekend, I'm having a bit of a meltdown. Things will never go back to normal. It is so, so shit.
Are you able to address your health concerns anytime soon?
You are not alone, I despair of the polarisation of society, the prospect of a no deal Brexit on top of the Current economic recession, job prospects for my 2 at uni, Long term impact of this on our young people and lack of any attempt by the government to rebuild this divided society.
I’m sorry I’m not helping you, but you are not the only one feeling this way.
Blimey, I felt just like this yesterday.
Thank you all it's reassuring to know I'm not alone even though I'm sorry others are feeling crap too.
The health issues I just need to address. I'm frightened really. And I don't want to go into the surgery if I can help it but I also don't think it's something that can be dealt with over the phone. My anxiety is sky high about leaving the house at the moment, even going to the supermarket has become an ordeal.
I've had a really lazy weekend, eaten badly and not been able to go out for walks due to the weather so maybe that's contributing to my glumness.
I feel the same. I got up at 9am today, sat at the kitchen table with my iPad and I’m still sat here almost 4 hours later. I have zero motivation atm, absolutely exhausted throughout the day but can’t sleep at night, I have a chronic health condition which has really flare up the last few months so that’s not helping, I feel completely ‘meh’ about life yet still managed to get completely and utterly wound up about all the things going on in the world right now, I’m just so angry on top of my melancholy . I love my family but being with them 34/7 is driving me insane, yesterday I just had to get out for a drive by myself, I felt like I was going to go insane. I’m just so exhausted.
obviously 24/7, although it does feel like 34/7 at times 😆
I feel the same too. Everything is a struggle for me at the moment. I feel like I am definitely not living, just existing.
I feel the same. 2020 must go on record as a particularly low point.
Maybe (hopefully) the only way is up.
Sorry you feel crap OP. You're not alone.
Me too OP. I miss my office instead of working from home.
I almost just lost it as my neighbour slammed our communal door and it echos through my flat. Almost just rang the estate agents to put it up for sale. How ridiculous!! Just went for a drive and now having tea and a chocolate bun!!!
Hugs to everyone.
Me too. Been in a total schlump all weekend. I'm worried about my son who isn't getting the mental health and recovery help he needs because Covid. I feel lonely and angry and pissed off and tearful. No motivation to go for a walk because I'll have to wash my hair first and cover up my bad skin and I can't be bothered. And there's nowhere to walk to here! Unless I feel like walking around the streets on my own (i don't)
This life sucks.
