I have #Depression and #Anxiety and I'm wondering if this is a common feeling for others with mental illness. I often find myself feeling restless; not like tossing and turning, more... existentially restless. I will settle into a chapter of my life (i.e. starting college, moving towns, getting a good job) and within months feel like I need change. It feels like I want to run, to leave everything behind and go somewhere better, somewhere new. It often comes with stress, which as an anxious person, is ever-present. Does anyone relate? #shareyourstory

Provide a safe space for your girlfriend to explore her own emotions safely with you and yes, without you. Encourage her to speak to a licensed professional when feeling the urge to offer advice when maybe, she just needs someone to listen to her vent.
Be a shoulder to cry on without trying to fix the reason that’s causing her tears. It’s hard to see the ones we love in pain, but it’s better to provide healthier options to cope with negative emotions or symptoms of any mental distress.
When your girlfriend is struggling and all you want to do is help, the best thing could be seeking a therapist, counselor, psychologist, mental health doctor, etc.
There’s only so much we can do until given the right tools as an educated support system!
I'm new here but I wanted to welcome everyone who reads this to share their story and check out a mental health and wellbeing platform called Learn 2 Listen. Everyone's story deserves to be told and there is so much good that can come from reflecting internally and a cathartic release that can happen once we share these realities. Here is the website: www.learn2listen.live #MentalHealth #vulnerability #shareyourstory #compassion #Podcast
Through being ill for over 11years one of the awful parts is suffering with depression. So have found over the years, ways of coping to understand that I may not be able to.control my low moods but I can work through them by finding ways of coping so that I don't spiral or lose control...one of the best tonics for me is simply just seeing my grandsons, they have such a beautiful, innocent gift that they share with me. Their smiles, faces, eyes, scent, are all so powerful, at times, more effective that any medication that I take!
Please, if you wish, share with me & others, your reasons for smiling even when you're low 🙂

I had to get off of my Fibro meds due to pregnancy, I'd like to stay off of them but the pain is extreme. What are some ways you manage the pain that work despite or as well as the meds?
I'm always hurting weather I'm on them or not but maybe you have some ideas?
I posted an "in the moment of angst" video on my youtube channel. It is my only video and it has me so freaked out that people will be mean but I just want to help people not feel alone like I do. #Anxiety #shareyourstory #helpothers
