I don't know why I feel so guilty, my mind is trying to trick me probably. I got approved for SSI and all I can think is at my age I should have a job, is it really that bad, I feel fine..right now. Ugh, I found out I have ocd last week and I have quite a few others. I hate how my mind works, I'm so greatful I'm going to get it though. I'm dependant on my adult children.

My Return to #TheMighty

For a couple months, I felt like I was doing really good. Mentally.
But now, I have noticed myself slipping into the same routine as I used to be in. Doing the same shit everyday. Not doing anything with my days. Watching movies to get out of my own life. Bascially just waiting for the day to be over. Then going to sleep. And doing it all over again the next day. It’s tiring.
I want to speak to friends during this time, but they are all busy with their own lives.. / work, school, partners etc therefore I don’t want to feel like I am being an interruption to their day or life during that time.
Being depressed, and having high levels of anxiety is very lonely, and for me it’s full of guilt because I am not working.. therefore I feel guilty for being/ looking like a bum and doing nothing with my life.
(Even tho I am returning to uni in March)
It’s just really hard to be alone during attacks and moments, when you are alone most of the time.

The part of doing laundry that I really do not mind

My absolute favourite part of doing the laundry is getting the clothes out of the dryer and putting them away. They are just sooooo waaaarrrm and soooooft. It really calms me down if I am feeling anxious.

Ignoring my life. #MentalHealth

I can literally feel in my brain that I am ignoring my life. I feel like I am in a weird movie or something and I’m watching the world pass and move around but I’m stuck and I’m stagnant, both not knowing how to move BUT! Also not wanting to move because I’m comfortable there. I have to move out of my house soon, and find a job, and bascially return to reality. I haven’t worked in nearly a year and I have been a super home body for nearly a year. So I’m terrified. I have tried explaining this to my therapist, but she just gives me advice on how to get back out there. But what I feel like I need is a cuddle from someone who actually knows how this feels to just watch the world spin around you, and be so content of ignoring it that you end up just ignoring life. #MentalHealth #Life #anxeity #Homebody

I was built to help/give to other people.

I was built to give/care/share/be kind to other people. But I really struggle to do that with myself. I can’t help myself to get out of the pit i am in right now. #MentalHealth #anxeity #Depression
