As someone who want through depression and still has it, I can say get help see a specialist. I regret not seeing one sooner. There is nothing wrong with seeking one. It doesn’t make you weak. It takes a strong person to omit they need help and get it. I hope things get better for you soon. Keep your head up and I’m always here if you want to talk.

We don’t know eachother or anything but you know if you ever wanna have a stranger who thinks you’re pretty cool, I’m here. I’ve been dealing w this kinda stuff for a while as well and idk… maybe I’ll have some tips and tricks. Or if you just wanna get your mind off it we could draw together or something. Idk, HMU if you want!
Otherwise I hope you’re… at least okay. And I feel for you, cause I know how shitty this can be.

You feel an empty feeling in your chest that’s slowly eating you. Can’t sleep because thoughts are passing by, so you use something to distract yourself (I usually use music). Eating too much or too less. You don’t like the person you see at the mirror. Social anxiety/anxiety. Am I right?

I comfort by writing what I always feel to see if the person can relate and try to make the him/her feel better.

I’m a pretty private person myself.
I have to say that finding the courage to say something- anything- and not keeping it to yourself is admirable.
Sorry if I sounded cheesy though.
I’ll just leave the quote. Sometimes when it gets hard I like to look at it.

@Willowbean , it’s fine if this isn’t a part of the therapy thread. She’s going through a really hard time and it’s fine if she wants to make a thread to talk about it and let her feelings out, because no one should have to keep those feelings bubbled up inside. Depression is a demon.
Also, please don’t take offense to how she responded, she’s just upset. I would be upset if someone told me that as well when I just made a post talking about how I’m feeling and why it’s hurting me inside.

@fcukforcookies My PM is always open if you want to talk, no one should have to go through this alone :heart:

Definitely not going to tell ya to talk to someone about it because it’s not always that you can get the right person, ya know? And it’s no one’s fault because they can’t understand what they can’t.

I had my own… phase and I feel like I am almost out of it. Of course you can never be completely fine but I am as good as I could be, I think so I’ll suggest what helps me. It might or might not help you but trying won’t hurt!

  • Always be open to laughter. Like sometimes even if you just can’t laugh, force yourself. You’ll laugh forcefully for days and it will be weird but eventually you’ll be so used to laughing and smiling, even smallest things will be enough to take your mind off everything.

  • Try to be, like, careful who you tell about these things cause ya know, some people just pretend to understand when in reality they are completely blank.

  • Surround yourself with crazy and funny people as much as you can! That’s what will get you through your bad days. You know, that kind of people that can make you laugh and smile after a bad day or lift your mood always? Keep them for yourself! Even if you are being clingy, just keep close to them!

  • This will sound like a weird advice but when I felt low, I kept myself busy with everything. If you just wanna skip the ‘I am being sad and lonely’ part, all you gotta do is try new things and activities and keep your mind busy but know that this won’t always help you because one day, it’s all gonna come crashing down.

  • Oh and there’s this habit that always makes me feel better. When you feel particularly sad about an event or something, write it down and then tear it up. Do it once, twice, thrice until you feel like you can smile again! And trust me, eventually, you will!

  • Lastly, my dad signed me up for therapy after what happened with me and it helped me a lot. Like seriously, if you can talk to a professional, trust me on this, there can’t be anything better than that.

And above all, I am here if you gotta talk. I know we don’t know each other but who says we cant change that?

Thank you. Everything you said makes perfect sense to me. :heart: Guess u just need to be reminded about these things from time to time.

Yes! Most of them are so normal things and I felt silly myself for not realising it before but when I did, I wrote it all down lmao so I would be able to remind others and myself whenever needed.

If it helped even in the slightest, I’d be really happy! Everyone is going to tell you to talk to someone but sometimes that’s not enough! No one is going to tell you what you yourself do know, keep smiling till it comes to you so naturally that you won’t even have to think about it to actually do it.

This might seem like helpful at the time, but it’s one of the things I did, and regret, cause I gotta live with them now, and watch how people react on them.
Anyway thank u, ur words might not be comforting for most I guess, but they are sobering.

U didn’t hon) Being mentally sober is better than comforted.
