Exhausted

The simplest way I think to describe how I feel is exhausted with just existing.
I put all my energy into trying to be “normal” that when I crash I massively crash!
I don’t really have anyone to confide in that understands & my partner doesn’t understand so he just gets frustrated.

During the last few years I’ve lost friendships with people that were like my life line, but turned out to be not who I thought they were.
Now I feel very isolated & wish I could just sleep to avoid reality. Help! How can I move forward as I want to do more than just exist?

Too much grief

One of my cats died in late January. Two days later another cat was diagnosed with diabetes and glaucoma. And the cat who slept in the bed beside me got unexpectedly sick and died 5 wks later. We gave him all kinds of medicine trying to save him. It was not a peaceful death.

Now I feel my depression taking hold of my body and hurting beyond belief. I am 73 so I don’t have to go to work. I want to sleep much of the time and am sliding into a hole I can’t get out of. I wish I could disappear and get away from my thoughts. My cat’s blood is all over the charts and his back legs have no strength. There are insulins available but the fb support group says they know more than the vet. I can’t do anything and I can’t face anything. There are no counselors available anymore. I used to know how to get out of depression but I can’t get out of the hole. My cats were my world. I am too old to adopt any more as I would pass away first and what would become of them. So there is no comfort for the loss and sorrow I am in. The grief won’t let go of me.

What's your experience stopping antidepressants? #prozac #Depression #Fluoxetine

Hey, I've been in a good place lately and I've been thinking about quitting my #Antidepressants
I'm pretty sure I'm having some side effects to the medication and I've been thinking about quitting for 4 years. I'm just scared to try. The what ifs and all.
If you have any experience in quitting to take antidepressants, please share! Or any info at all about it

Too tired to think #Depression

Most days I struggle to get out of the house. It takes me several hours just to get dressed. When I am finally ready I begin to feel nauseous, unable to focus. My mind is going in a million different directions. I am emotionally drained.
