Help me feel better please.
I'm just turning here again predictably when I feel like I'm running out of options...just fucking hell it's bleak, I'm 26 now and my mental health is worse than ever, the terrifying thing is I think I've realised I'm never going to get it right, I'm fast becoming an obvious weirdo to people. Physically I feel unwell I have stuff to battle there that may be serious.
You will never be too far gone to come back, no matter how low you can feel. You'll be surprised how fast things can get better when they suddenly do. That sounds like horseshit to you now of course but it's not a forever downhill slope and I believe you'll find a way up.
Secondly though, physical health needs a doc. Separate that entirely from your mental health worried and get it checked out. You won't be under scrutiny for anything other than physical health, and a check up is a necessity. Y'hear?
Have you seen TBO's stand up routine? That might cheer you up.*
*Disclaimer: I've not actually watched it yet.
and now he's in a settled relationship, has a good social network and, after a year or so of volunteering, has started working again. Obviously his mental health issues have never gone away and he knows they could return at some point and I think some days are better than others for him but nonetheless things get better. It might be that you never quite manage to conquer all your problems but it might be that you nonetheless find ways to live with them...
That's some practical believable positivity. I'm glad your friend is doing better
You should read this, if you haven't already.
mate, you're one of the warmest people I've noticed on here. You seem genuinely empathetic without a touch of insincerity...for that to come across on an internet forum is some feat. So hang in there.
Means a lot that I can come across well despite never really having anything cool to say. Bless you x
really dizzy and panicking and tearful. Think I just need to let this run its course. Hope you're coping xx
I jut sent my supervisor an email saying we should get lockers cause carrying books about is bad for our backs.
I always have to fill out this thing at te doctors about having no hope for the future and whether I want to harm myself. I just feel anxious and worried all the time and panic.
Feel like crying and just admitting that I fucked up my life, feel so broken hearted about the opportunities I have wasted...at the same time I know I was just destined to feel terrible so it makes no difference...really wish I had been murdered.
Sorry to hear you feel bad too...life just isn't fair is it?
your life has so much value even for us on here who don't know you 'personally'. Things can get so much better for you. I know I'll feel better tomorrow I don't even know what it is I have exactly but I hate how it affects my behaviour towards others. Really glad I have someone who understands me.
Sometimes there isn't even one big thing to overcome or one diagnosis that will make sense of everything y'know?
For me I think there's just been layers and layers of problems building up since I was 12 or so, now Im in too deep...Im scared time is escaping me all the time , whilst I try to get through a day and stabilise the years pass and I'm further and further from being someone worth knowing.
You seem a very sensible person though so I'm sure you will come to terms with your own issues in a healthy way, good luck!
you've got a lot to offer.
I used to but now I'm a broken record, maybe I could just save all my money and give it to charity to assuage my guilt for being a failure...nah that's shit too.
