    Midlife crisis?

    I am wondering if I am going thru some sort of mid life crisis or something. I just feel empty and unfulfilled. With my job. My relationship. Etc. I know I have a lot to be thankful for etc but I just feel somewhat empty. I feel like I need a big change or some sort of purpose in my life. I’m 59 years old. Is this normal? Anyone else feel this way or have any advice? #Depression #purpose #change

    A little progress is still progress. It gets said all the time but focus on the positives, the small victories and each day will seem a little brighter.
    Depression to me is an inability to feel at all, an inability to focus, an inability to see life, an inability to do, I just sit and stare at nothing while I feel dead inside. On the other hand there can also be times when it is hyperactive and the overthinking causes my anxiety to spiral, triggering my depression surrounding my lack of control in my mind.
    I know people care about me, I often just don't care about myself enough to 'see' that or certainly feel it. Just like ripples of grace do good and affect people around me in a positive way, my mental health stuggle can have ripples of pain and uncertainty, fear, stress.
    I am almost 3 years removed from almost not getting the noose off my neck and life is better, more manageable today, thanks to the doctors, friends, family that have taken the time and love to pour into me since I opened up about my #MentalHealth challenges.
    Today, even in the midst of my struggles, heloing others helps me.
    Please reach out, do not be embarrassed or ashamed, I am here for all, without prejudice or judgment.

    Biggest fear

    My biggest fear is if I couldn’t have children. If my body just won’t allow it. Me and my husband have been trying for a baby and so far not having any luck. Honestly makes me feel so sad at the thought of not being able to conceive. Kids are what makes life worth living, without them I feel like I have no purpose and am just existing not living #Depression #MentalHealth #Children #purpose

    Does God really exist?

    Having faith is sometimes hard. I wonder if there is a God and if so why did He make me? What's His purpose for me? Why am I here? Why am I like this?

    No purpose

    Hi all, I’m just feeling particularly purposeless today. I hate the feeling - I have people who love me and people who I love - but for some reason I need more of a reason to live. #Depression #Anxiety #purpose
