    Struggling to keep my head up

    I go to work everyday and feel like I am the only one in my department who even tries anymore. Our leader is pulled in several different directions and my other 2 coworkers barely do anything to help, except talk down about each other to me. I was told the other day I wasn't doing enough but my coworkers get to walk around and talk all day instead of work with no repercussions. I loved this job because I wouldn't have to deal with the public as much anymore but now I feel like I can't even do anything right anymore. #Feelinglost #depressed

    Normal MRI… what now?

    My MRI results came back as normal & ENT have discharged me.

    I’m not quite sure what to do. Does this mean I have to deal with migraines for the rest of my life now? My hearing randomly going? The pain and mental attacks from the increases during colds etc?

    I know, I should be grateful that it’s normal. But I’m just feeling lost and frustrated. There’s no plan now other than just having to deal with it.

    How do you find help #Therapist #BipolarDisorder #Feelinglost #numb

    I am type 1 bipolar. I was on abilify for several years. I stopped taking it about a year ago I guess. I didn’t feel s difference.

    Currently I am struggling with depression. I’m doing a good job pretending to be fine, but I know I am not. I feel numb. I hate my job. I’m
    Always tired. Completely unmotivated to do anything.
    Even things I used to love doing. If I didn’t have to leave my house I wouldn’t.

    How do I get out of this? It’s affecting my marriage. It’s effecting my relationships with friends, the few I have left, and family.

    Everything is hard. How can I be numb and in pain at the same time?

    Bilateral swelling of ligaments and tendons

    Hey bendy friends. I am at the end of my tether with the doctors and so called specialists. I have swelling in my tendons and ligaments that are identical on both sides but apparently there is nothing wrong ? Any way because it’s both sides and because it’s not just one side I have been fobbed off yet again. Please tell me it’s part of being bendy ? I did suspect rheumatoid arthritis but my bloods are not showing this according to the go ( I know you can still have RA without the factor in your blood but the doctor isn’t having any of it).
    Picture of our new rescue dog because he is cute ❤️

    Please tell me I am not going mad ?

    Recently been diagnosed with BPD after 20 years! #Feelinglost

    I have just been diagnosed with BPD after suggesting it to my doctor, I was told I had severe depression with generalised anxiety and panic attacks. I've tried most antidepressants but I'd find they'd stop working after a while and I'd still feel depressed. So I'm also medication resistant. I'm still waiting for my time2talk self referral I'm just hoping they can help with the right therapy. I was told DBT is the right therapy for me, I feel overwhelmed and relieved at the same time. I guess I feel lost at sea... I've found lately I always feel burnt out and exhausted.

    I just wondered if anyone has any suggestions of books or what I can do to help myself and get my head around the diagnosis ❤🙏🏻

    I just want to feel I have a Purpose in this world besides being a Mother & Wife 😢😢

    For quite some time, I have been feeling like the world is rejecting me & doesn’t want me to have a purpose in this world. For Heavens sake I’m 40 years old, when the H** is my life purpose going to go somewhere!! I know I have Screwed up Soooo many times in my life & have blew soooo many opportunities that I unfortunately can’t go back & change, as much as I would love to & would give anything to go back & change things & I Regret it every second of Everyday.

    I’m beginning to wonder if there is still any hope to hold onto….Over the last 2 months I have been meeting with my supported employment worker & she is supposed to be helping me work towards becoming a Mental Health Attendant Care Worker or a Mental Health Youth Care Worker but to be quite honest, it’s just not moving fast enough…which is piss poor on her part because she’s supposed to be working on my resume & getting it all set up but Still after Several weeks has yet to finish it so I can start applying to Mental Health agencies to be an Attendant Care Worker or a Mental Health Youth Care Worker.

    All the while, I called a woman’s battered shelter & asked to volunteer there to help other women gain stability in there life & mentor & be an advocate for other women who have been in the same situation as me & have suffered trauma. But sadly, I have yet to receive a call back & it’s been over 2 weeks since ive gotten in contact with them inquiring about a volunteer position. I’m to the point of being done waiting because obviously they don’t want me or else I would have received some type of phone call….I can’t express how discouraging all of this is….

    It’s like this world has a force against me & doesn’t want me to succeed. Maybe I don’t have a purpose in life. I feel like this is All my life is going to be is a wife & Mother….Not that, that is a bad thing. I Love my Girls More than Anything in this World but I also need to do something for myself that makes me feel good about myself & that will keep my mind busy & improve my mental health & depression & keep me from constantly being in my head & get out of my husband’s hair. I feel like I’m driving him insane & making him miserable. Although he says I’m not…..I wish I could believe that.

    #Feelinglost #feelingdepressed #hopeless

    I just don’t know what to do with my mental health anymore . I try to reach for help only to have them let me down. They canceled my appointment and that was it . I don’t know what else to do ???? I reached out and it got me nowhere.


    My story - frozen in time

    Hi all.
    I am new to the might so I thought I’d briefly introduced myself. I’m 32years old and I feel ‘frozen in time’ while the world around me keeps going on.
    I grew up in an mental, emotionally and psychologically abusive situation. From the day I was born I learned to walk on egg shells around my father, never knowing what would set him off or what ‘crazy’ thing he would do next. My mom bore the brunt of the abuse and I often felt scared for her. I took it upon myself (at the ripe old ah of 4) to be her protector. I did everything I could to protect her and my little brother.
    The only way I could cope was to disassociate my self from any and all feelings, which work until I was about 27. My ‘coping plan’ created a bit of a dissociative disorder. I was basically numb for most of my life. Then I had a sort of breakdown and started therapy. Never having deal with any of my feelings over the year letf me without the ability to know how to handle simply emotions. I did not have the tools to cope wth everyday feeling . After years of therapy and 2 full on dreakdowms downs where I was admitted to phychiatric facilities.
    With a lot of help and effort (and medication) I had felt like I had come a long way. I could survive day to day life (well most days).
    That is until I took a job last year that trashed my confidence. After a year of working in a cutthroat, ‘stab eachother in the back’ environment, where they foster and even encourage bullying and disloyally I couldn’t take it any more, I feel like they attacked me as a person. So I left at the end of last year. The plan was to take a short break to catch my breat then find work.
    Buy once I was was out of there I basically fell appart. My Depression and Anxiety escalated and escalated. I am at the point where I hardly leave the house and even simple tasks like showing is difficult. I have alienated myself from my friend. I can’t talk to any of them as they don’t understand where I am in my head (I have briefly spoken to a few friends in the past but it’s hard to explain when they have no clue what I am taking about) I have reached the point where I feel completely frozen in time. I have no clue what to do next. I have no idea how to find work (which is a problem as my saving are coming to an end) I’m too tired to exercise or do much self care.

    My depression causes me to worry that I will never find a work. I mean who would hire me anyway. And my Anxiety makes me worried sick that I don’t have work right now and I desperately need to be working. Getting up in the morning with a purpose (like having a job) is actually very helpful in controlling my depression.
    I am in a very bad head space, like I’m quite literally frozen while the world keeps on going around me. I don’t know how to get out of the head space. I basically have no life and nothing to look forward to and no idea how to change it
    Anyway, that my story in a nutshell.

    Heartbroken #Friendship #lostfriend

    I lost a friend today. Not by death but saying goodbye. I had to do it because I didn’t want her to go through hell by her husband anymore. He’s a Narcissistic and a Control Freak. He won’t let her to have any friends at all. She’s being manipulated and he’s using her kids against her.

    Unfortunately there’s nothing I can do. I can’t even be there for her. He watches everything she does. I’m so heartbroken & in tears. Feels like I’m watching somebody drown & I’m powerless to save that person.

    I tried helping her by giving her some advice. She won’t even do it. I feel so lost and I wish I could have done more. I’m so frustrated. #Feelinglost #somuchpain
