    When nothing brings satisfaction #hopeless #sad #whatsmypurpose ?

    When you get up everyday despite the depression and anxiousness. Even though u slept horribly the night before. When you work extremely hard everyday and u know your blessed because there are many who suffer to a degree that won’t or can’t work (and trust I’ve been there at some point). When you have done everything possible but yet nothing and I mean nothing brings satisfaction to your everyday life. Nothing makes me happy anymore or even makes me feel alive. Grateful to have ways to make money and be independent but knowing that I have no passion or purpose leaves me to question why am I here? Do I have a purpose? Am I living just to one day die? I mean we all are technically speaking but I’m not necessarily making the most out of my life. Not because I can’t or I won’t but simply because I’ve worked so hard, strived for greatness despite my mental health and now I’m burnt out depleted and lacking the will to care. Will I give up?’ No my son needs me but am I happy no. Shopping use to be my thing but that doesn’t help anymore. I’m numb. Leaving me wondering all this for what exactly…,, #deathhastobeeasy #Lifeishard

    Being pressured to find a full time job.

    I am 27 years old. My current situation in life is so weird at the moment. I don’t know what to do or what to think. My boyfriend (who is 25) works full time remotely. His pay is more than decent. I on the other hand have no job. Sort of. I work part time at a bookshop. Mostly on weekends. I was pressured into finding a job. I did. Now I’m being told to find a better, full time job with much better pay. I can tell that if I won’t, my boyfriend will leave me. So, in my mind, I don’t think I have the capability and mentality to underhold a full time job. I don’t think I have that strength. Even getting up early in the morning to work on the weekends is hard enough already. Also i forgot to mention, we live with his parents. His mom recently underwent a huge surgery and still recovering, his dad is kinda losing it. He also has depression and anxiety and being manic. Now being in the household with all this down, negative energy is really getting to me. It makes it hard for me. I am afraid my relationship is in jeapordy. I don’t know what to do. I am afraid. #gettingajob #findingajob #Lifeishard #Growingup #Life #Depression #Anxiety #underpressure #Pressure #afraid

    So haven’t been on here for a long time but found it really helpful last time. Currently doing dbt and struggling to use my skills I have learnt already. Gave in to self harm a few times the last couple of weeks. My partner and kids have been unwell and still are so I have had no time to myself and everything is getting on top of me. Trying to be positive today but I really just want to give up. Put some washing on, went to see my mum who is also poorly, made a pasta sauce and got my drawing pad out. Couldn’t think what to draw so decided on a robin, my favourite bird. Yet to see one in my garden they always give me a sence of peace when I do and I feel like I’m getting a sign from a loved one who is no longer here. I really need hobbies or art ideas they would be much appreciated. My life is ruled by being a mum and I have no sence of who I am. I literally just spend each day just struggling to get through to the next one. I really neee a purpose.

    I drew this last year because I suffer from Gastroparesis

    My drawing of my paralyzed stomach Also known as “Gastroparesis”….I drew this last year because it was the only visual way of describing just how bad it is to suffer from having a paralyzed stomach that’s not ever going to work right for the rest of my life….My stomach has to rely on a surgical inplantation device called a Gastric Pacemaker that sends electrical signals to my stomach to remind it to digest solid food….To live with this everyday is a struggle but over the last few years, I have learned to accept it for what it is & live the most of life that I can, on top of suffering from mental illness….This saying alone is so very true….So many of us has an invisible illness that no one can see with their own eyes, nor understand what it’s like to suffer with it, unless they themselves have suffered with it or are suffering from it…So no matter what invisible illness you may be suffering from, big or small, try to live life to the best of your ability & just try to enjoy the small moments in life because we only get one life & one chance to do it right….As the saying goes..”Life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass, it’s about learning to dance in the rain.”

    To much!

    So much is going wrong right now and I just don’t even know how to deal with it. I am trying to stay positive but I swear it is just to hard. I really wouldn’t be mad if I just fell out dead...then I could go to heaven and away from all of this. It is just too hard. As soon as I think things are going okay something g else horrible happens. It is too much 😩 #Depression #Anxiety #Sadness #Lifeishard

    Life is hard

    Her laugh used to light up a room.
    Her eyes used to gleam with hope.
    She used to be passionate about many things.
    Her laugh dwindled into a frown.
    Her eyes sunken in from being exhausted from life.
    Her passions dissipated because life got in the way of her dreams.
    She is laughing insanely alone.
    Suffering through mental pain and physical.
    She has many scars.
    But she says.
    She has won.
    She survived.

    If you survived pain.
    You have won.
    Keep pushing forward.
    You made it this far.
    You owe it to yourself for pushing past your limits.
    Relax darling, its only the beginning of your journey.

    Question

    Hi all, I just wanted to know how others cope with fibromyalgia chest pain? #fibropost #fibroproblems

    Sometimes it gets so severe, I need to stop and take a couple of deep breaths and drink lots of water. I have done countless tests and its always due to anxiety or stress. #Fibromyalgia #Pain #ChronicIllness #Lifeishard

    Question

    Hi all, I was wondering what helps most for fibro flare ups?

    Does anyone ever think at one point..

    Do mental disorders actually exist...or did we create them because some people were different? A way to explain why were different... that different isn't normal.? What if it were a gift ?

    I want to believe there is a cure... but this is who I am. I need to accept that.

    Sometimes I go along with this... then I don't feel so crazy. #OCD #different #CheckInWithMe #Lifeishard #iwishineverknew
