    When will it change? #treatment resistant depression #major depressive disorder #Anxiety disorder #eating disorder #PTSD

    Does it ever get better? I do most of what I have to do with extreme effort - work, home, existing. I have mastered the “facade” most of the time. People don’t get it. If they could be in my shoes for an hour they wouldn’t last. I know people have it worse. The black hole doesn’t end. I’m tired of getting guilted into staying on earth. I don’t want others to take on my pain, especially my kids (21&24) I’m not being fair to anyone. Rock-hard place.


    Treatment Resistant Depression, Anxiety

    I am ready to give up. I have tried so many things for my treatment resistant depression, anxiety, PTSD, eating disorder…,,. I have had 40+ medications, ketamine, hospitalizations (made things worse), outpatient groups, individual therapy, just to name a few. Has anyone tried transcranial magnetic therapy? I will not do ECT and shock my brain-personal observations. Any suggestions? #TreatmentresistantDepression #Anxiety #eating disorders

    Go to foods...

    Sometimes making meals and eating can be difficult due to sensory issues or our tics just making us spit out our food or throw it or other things like smashing it. Things the artist does to help her eat is she eats toast a lot and subs meals with smoothies and nutritional shakes when she has to. Sometimes it's the exhaustion from ticing that just makes you too tired to eat as well, especially from an attack. Sometimes your abdominal tics make you sick and after that, it's hard to force yourself to eat because eating will just make it worse. Other go-to foods are things like cheese sticks or oatmeal or pancakes. She eats gluten-free and low sugar as it helps her feel better but each to their own. What are some of your go-to food for when you really don't have the energy to eat?

    Holiday Struggles

    Tomorrow is Easter. I love it so much but I struggle at the same time. My depression has been worse for the past week or so. I know it's because of the expectations of me at Easter as I visit with my mom, brothers, nephews, and my brother's girlfriend. I have an eating disorder and I have had some success with it by following a specific food plan. My family does not support me not eating junk food, drinking, etc. They feel it is the holiday and I need to let loose. I know this is not something I can do. When I let loose my depression and eating disorder become unmanageable. I told them I'm bringing my own food. So I'm anxious about tomorrow to say the least.#Depression #eating disorders #Anxiety #codependent

    Does anyone else go days (1-3 ) without eating?!? Honestly, until recently I didn't think or realize it to be a problem. I work customer service and I had a guest tell me "Don't go losing any more weight" I mean yeah I was aware of having to make a new hole in my belt! But if I'm being honest..... I'm a woman and losing a couple of pounds is and will always be our dream. Lol. 😉 Now I'm extra PANICKED!!! Trying to remind myself to eat, but I put any food in my mouth and chewing is almost impossible. I have to force myself to get it down. ( it literally gags me ) an on top of it I've developed anxiety about my self-image..... do I look bad? Have I lost too much weight?? It's a cycle I've been in the last few years. 4 days eating 3 not..... or I'll feel good for a month, then something can happen maina catches me slipping and I'm doing it again....

    appetite and MH changes

    I’ve noticed recently that it is EXTREMELY difficult for me to make meals for myself and sometimes even eat at all. i still experience hunger but just can’t seem to force myself to eat.

    is this something any of you have experienced? what have you used to help yourself consume the amount of food you actually need? Any good websites with easy recipes?

    My journal ✏️ #Depression #PTSD #ChildhoodSexualAbuse #suicidal #eating disorder #domestic abuse

    This is my journal. I write in it when there is too much spinning around in my head. I find it extremely helpful to write it all down because then I can track how I feel day to day, clear my head a bit more, and I can show my psychiatrist important things that I might forget to say. Does anybody else keep a journal for their mental health? ❤️


    Small amounts of progress is still progress

    I actually got up and ate breakfast today without puttering around for hours first. Only took me like 15 minutes to convince myself to eat something and I'm really proud of that.

    Eating Depression

    Hey guys. My depression is so bad it’s to the point I’m barely eating. I was finally at a weight that I loved and now it’s all gone. I’m so hungry, but looking at food makes me sick. Any tips on how to maintain a healthy weight while being depressed? #Depression #Anxiety #alone #eating #help
