All progress lost

I’ve been having depression for the past month, month and a half or so. I had the common symptoms: loss of motivation, loss of joy, loss of energy, low mood, feelings of hopelessness and dread. After a month or so of CBT and meditation, I felt like I was feeling better. But just recently for the past couple of days, I’ve been feeling the same as I was on day one. Is this a relapse? Will it ever get better? I don’t understand. I’ve been doing things like exercise and breathing meditation to combat my depression but it just doesn’t seem to help. Will it ever get better? I don’t know.

I found out after 42 years of marriage that my husband is a cross dresser and does his thing while dressed like this. I had to go to mental hospital for 13 days. My kids I've had very little communication with cuz ya know you're a criminal I guess when you go to a mental hospital.

Extreme loss of motivation

It’s summer kids are out of school I have them in programs and have activities all for them for this summer.

For a few months now or at least in this moment while I’m writing this I am exhausted mentally I feel sad all I see on my Facebook etc is weight loss lose weight exercise this has not made me feel better about myself at all

It has made my inner critic more judgemental where I hate my body also it’s wreaking up my childhood drama from being bullied in middle school.

Yes I’ve been working with my therapist on this I see my new psychiatrist this Thursday too - my old one left and moved to Florida 🫠

This sadness and these thoughts have come up daily for weeks now and I’m having a hard time getting them to vacate and get out of this funky funk #Depression

What if it never gets better?

I did have optimism when I was younger but that’s probably because youth came with immaturity and a sense of being naive. Fast forward to the present time, I feel completely different due to many life’s circumstances and changes. My nonchalant attitude and numbness to everything has taken me out of life’s reality for the most part.

Now I feel comfortable in my depression and don’t want to let it go. I’m not sure if I should navigate through this or just let it be?

Hello, my name is Skylar I have learning disabilities: ADHD, OCD, Auditory Processing Disorder, Oral Expression Disorder, Severe Anxitey, and Depression. I feel sorry, anxious, depressed because I feel like people think I am annoying, crazy, weird, etc. It feels like nobody likes me or wants to be my friend. It feels like barely even anyone wants to be my friend. It feels like barely even anyone wants to text with me/hangout with me. It feels like I am invisible like some people dont even notice me. It makes me feel sad and lonely because it feels like nobody wants to be my friend.#Depression #anxitey #MentalHealth
