So i'm feeling really down today and I have been wondering why really I am living. All through your life you live to worry, be upset and work very hard indeed and then have about 20 yrs of relaxation in your retirement before you die so where are the good times and what is there to live for?

Whats getting to you?

'what is there to live for?'
your children (if you have any), laughter, love, friends, family, good times, holidays, sunny days, good food, good wine. All imo

oh dear lmom, you do sound like you are having a hard day today, i'm sorry to hear this. Would you like to tell us a bit more of why you feel so low - are you on medication and in a rough patch or has something happened to make today bad?

Will be in and out if you want to talk, just post as you feel able.

Take care ((((hugs))))

I am previously KemalsStilletto and a thread a bit ago why I feel low but today I guess is just one of those days. I am on medication but as soon as I take it I feel sooo tired and heavy like I just don't want to do anything.

have you tried getting out into the fresh air? Go to the park, shops etc?

LittleMadamOfManchester Tue 16-Aug-05 13:33:32

I am rightly just down with not much of an explanation I guess....just confused and everything. Thing is I start the day off feeling ok, then abotu an hr after I wake up I feel so down and wonder why I even bothered getting up. I feel right guilty because there are many other ppl in life with much bigger problems than me.

im off to the sauna in a bit then maybe going to Primark for a bit of retail therapy so I will get a little fresh air on my way.

compo Tue 16-Aug-05 13:37:00

maybe the medication you are taking isn't right for you?

LittleMadamOfManchester Tue 16-Aug-05 13:42:42

Aww thanks are so lovely, I notce you are always there when people are feeling miserable - you are great

Thanks to you all too ...I am feeling OK now. Just at points in the day I seem to get really low sometimes.

I feel this way on a night. I wake up and spend the day feeling fine, happy and cheerful, but when I go to bed I lie awake for hours feeling so overwhelmed about everything. Thinking of taking sleeping tablets...

I wouldn't know what to suggest for you except asking your gp to see a counsellor to get to the bottom of why you're feeling down.
