Physical pain from depression

I’ve been having a very, very hard time lately. Six months ago I almost died in a serious car accident. I survived, but suffered a TBI, a few broken bones, and other injuries.

The depression I’m experiencing now is overwhelming. I have a high level of anxiety being around my family. So much so, that I stay in my room and cry when they are all here. Which is very often.

In addition to the physical pain that I have because of the bodily and brain injuries, I am feeling an overwhelming emotional pain. Anxiety attacks also lead to tears. The depression makes it hard to do anything. As such, I’m staying in bed a whole lot. My body is starting to hurt. I feel like this is from the emotional pain but also from the lack of movement.

Does anyone have any ideas or strategies for moving my body even a little bit? I tried to do yoga today and it had me crumpled on the floor in tears. How can I motivate myself to gently move for the sake of my whole body health? #TraumaticBrainInjury #Depression

Paralysed by depression #cantmotivatemyself #toodepressed

I know that there are many things I could do to make myself feel better, but something in my brain won't let me actually move! It's not that I won't, it's like I can't and it's scaring me. I don't want people to think I'm being lazy but there is this mental wall I can't cross! Has this happened to anyone else? #mentalblock


I've just reached an all new low. Being too depressed to use the washroom, despite really having to go and rly needing to change my tampon. Guess I'd rather die from toxic shock syndrome. Sorry if tmi. #CheckInWithMe #MajorDepression #BPD #toodepressed #Iwannaendme
