The Day After

Today, I feel emotionally exhausted, drained, spent, all of the above. I want support, but I also want to push everyone away. I had been “up” for a while, so I guess this is where the “down” begins. I’m going to attempt to create some type of a safe zone for myself for the time being. And to be honest, I’m really hating myself for letting in certain people into my life who had no intention of staying. It may be all in my head, but that’s how I feel about it. It’s even harder sometimes to accept that I do matter. That, and constant vacillating between knowing who I am and completely feeling like I don’t have an identity at all. I know it will all pass eventually, I’m just feeling every inch of this right now. Tears and all. #MentalHealth #Depression #Borerlinepersonalitydisorder #Upsanddowns #Emotionallydrained

#I ’m tired of trying for nothing, I get up every day to do nothing I need a life purpose again or I will lose this final battle

I read so many challenging things here, I know I am not the only one struggling but why does life have to be so hard? For so many people! It’s been difficult finding comfort these days, it all seems hard and pointless, I hate thinking that this will be my life until my day comes #Fatigued #Emotionallydrained #iwanttogiveup

I hate the turmoil in my head.

I’m mostly numb and empty, but I can still feel the overwhelming emotions in the back of my head. Panic, fear, stress, worry, loneliness, anger. I can feel the numbness most prominently, but I can still feel everything else churning in the background. Ughh I hate this instability in my head. I’ve had this for years, but it’s only gotten worse recently. I want to be numb, but more than that I want to feel calm. I don’t even care about feeling happy, I just want calmness in my own head.

Does anyone else feel #Emotionallydrained after speaking with their mental health provider or therapist?

I just had a great session with my mental health provider. He was really proud and as he put it “giddy” because of some positive realizations that I had come too yesterday 😊. We also talked about the next steps to take for my recovery process and it was all really good. However, after the appointment I just feel emotionally drained and want to take a nap. 😴 I feel bad that I feel emotionally drained. I just wanted to know if anyone else has experienced this? 🤔

so I need to look for a job I'm so tired of being at home with nothing to do but clean , watch TV, play on phone , sleep... but to me it's so traumatic and humiliating. My husband is supported and I'm so grateful, but he is dealing with his #PTSD and doesn't want to go to work.. he works for the VA hospital so it's hard for me to get motivated and him too... I'm stressed...

this pass week has honestly been from hell, my boss was moved to first shift without the knowledge of any of us. the new guy who’s taken over is on a bit of a power trip and always tells me he understands what I’m doing through due to knowing someone with mental health issues. I’m a bit upset because while he may understand mental health, everyone’s situation is different. due to the emotional game of gossip telephone I went on, unsure who to talk to/trust I ended up having the a truly awfully panic attack because I just physically/mentally couldn’t take what’s been going on anymore. one of the teachers found me and things have for the most part gone back to as ‘normal’ as they can for the time being.

my question is, I’m working my second job this coming weekend and it’s an in and out shift at a local theatre. I’m so drained I want to tell them I can’t make it, I’ve decided I’m gonna tell them in unavailabile for the out shift to give myself some much needed me time and to allow my brain to heal. I feel awful doing this? what would you do in my shoes?
