    Struggling with #Anxiety and #BipolarDepression at the moment. Any suggestions on what to do? I already take medication and am in therapy. I am also under a lot of stress from life events which is only making the depression worse. Slept most of the day which is not like me. Any tips or words of support would be appreciated. Thank you.

    *Not feeling suicidal just really down.*

    With #BipolarDisorder I can't tell if I'm up or down but I feel like my moods are all over the place. I feel usually frustrated probably because I have to face my abuser soon which will trigger the #PTSD which could possibly result in #Dissociation . I have worked really hard to heal and stay away from toxic people. Now I feel like I'm being set back. #BorderlinePersonalityDisorder only complicates things. I already have difficulty with my emotions and being triggered will not help. My #Anxiety is off the charts. I know I am safe and that my fiancé won't let anyone hurt me but it's the thought of being in his presence one more time. I just don't know what to do, my friends are saying rest and be gentle with myself but that seems impossible right now. Honestly, I hope this doesn't push me to #Selfharm because I promised myself I would never do that again. I guess I just need words of encouragement and comfort right now. Thanks guys.

    I can’t do this anymore

    I writen this many times. The thoughts run in my brain and won’t go away. Totay I saw that I’m done with the negative friendships. But today I’m still the one at fault for expressing my feelings to my mother in law in my room. Everyone can hear it no privacy for me. I can’t express myself without being told I’m wrong.
    Now my husband wants to keep the peace and forcing me to make peace with sownboay who has caused me so much drama and hurt. Who says so steal all her stuff etc. she donated out we tried to sale it wouldn’t sale and told I’m jealous of her because I can’t take her hurting me anymore. I don’t care anymore about how she feels because she has made me feel so worthless and I can’t do anything.
    I’m not listened to and my husband defends her saying I am jelaous and I can’t be alone and so on. She’s got him believing stupidness that isn’t true about his wife.
    I refuse to talk to her don’t want her in my life anymore. They want to talk I’m done with it. I called my mother in law and she agreed that I don’t need this stress and my husband needs to see my feelings he only sees theirs because he won’t stop going up there (which he said he wouldn’t and I’m jealous for asking him to focus on his wife)
    I’m feeling bad, but maybe I shouldn’t what do you think? Am I a horrible person for not doing it anymore. For noticing how much she wants her wishes respected but she doesn’t do it with me. Does this make me a bad person for saying I had enough I’m not doing this. Since we were six she did this to me. I don’t see how I am jealous really don’t have anything to be jealous about. I am not the reason stuff is happening to her but I have been her punching bag to long and my anxiety is through the roof. I just needed to be listened to not snapped at or told I’m wrong for having these feelings been told that even from my husband which hurts the most .
    Help me I’m dying inside….

    I have been battling depression and anxiety for 20 years. I have been diagnosed with hypothyroidism for 10 years and just recently suffering from tension headaches for a year now. I was sexually abused at the age of 12. I have been going to therapy for 15 years. I have 5 beautiful children, one of those we lost 17 years ago this year on Thanksgiving. My headaches are debilitating and leave me in bed which makes my depression worse. I literally feel like I have tried just about everything I know to help myself and I feel absolutely worthless and awful! I feel stuck and my body is so tired. I am so tired and lost. I am so blessed with an amazing family, but it’s so hard for them to understand! I need help!!!! #ChronicDepression #SexualAbuse #Hypothyroidism #lonly #tired #ChronicHeadaches #ChronicIllness #attheendofmyrope #MentalHealth #needhelp

    Three Chronic Woes #chronicallyill #ChronicIllness #overwhelmed #Neuroendocrinecancer #ME myalgic encephalitis #EhlersDanlosSyndrome

    How do you cope when it is ALL coming at you at once? I was once a very independent, successful, super type A, corporate America gal who was so capable. Three chronic illnesses later I am exhausted, always battling brain fog, and my past coping mechanisms no longer work. Very quickly my life has spiraled out of control & I am feeling in such utter chaos that I don’t know how to right the ship. #hopeless #needhelp

    Does anyone else struggle with piecing themselves back together after abuse?

    I am slowly finding myself but feel drained. Any advice would be helpful. Thank you. #PTSD #Abuse #AbuseSurvivors #needhelp

    I’ve fought 8 long years for health. In that time I’ve been dismissed, let down, told nothing was wrong and left to my own defenses. I’ve suffered from depression and anxiety since I was 32, now 56 I’ve had a total abdominal colectomy with IRA in 2017, failed… only to get an ileostomy with hope for regaining health and weight in 2021. Now at 87 pounds, I’ve lost hope, doctors fail me, no offer of tube feeding or supplemental feeding, I can’t eat without pain, now on pain medication. Still I suffer. I’m at a loss, I’m trying to make each day count, I’m grateful for the life I’ve lived, but I’m not ready to go yet. I’m scared, yet I don’t have the energy to even attempt to go to doctors appointments with any hope, as they continue to fail me. I don’t understand why others are given help and the doctors I see won’t do a thing! I feel like I’ve just been left to wither away and die.



    So guys I have mental health issues, mainly anxiety and depression, I also have fibromyalgia which can leave me in chronic pain for periods of time. I'm not very steady on my feet and can't walk far due to pain. All of this has got worse over the last year or so, covid hasn't helped with that.... I havent been out of the house in over a year and a half either.
    I have two kids and a not very supportive partner at home, I'm finding it really hard to get motivated to move more, even though it's killing me not been able to go out or do the things I was doing a fee years ago. I'm severely overweight and although I'm actively trying to lose weight I'm solely reliant on my partner who would rather order a takeaway than cook me a meal. I've not eaten at length before because of this and I'm so conscious of eating the wrong things. Tbh I'm at a loss as to what to do, I feel like while I'm at home I can't fully focus on what I need to do, someone always needs my attention or something is always happening and I don't get a moment to myself. I've thought about maybe going into some kind of rehabilitation centre but I'm in the UK and I'm not aware of anything like this I can access, does anyone know if there is anything like this in the uk, preferable in the North as I am in Yorkshire. I'm at a loss, it's took me this long to fully own up to how bad it is so no judgments please I don't know where else to turn x #Fibromyalgia #MentalHealth #Agoraphobia #needhelp #Anxiety #ChronicDepression
