All progress lost

I’ve been having depression for the past month, month and a half or so. I had the common symptoms: loss of motivation, loss of joy, loss of energy, low mood, feelings of hopelessness and dread. After a month or so of CBT and meditation, I felt like I was feeling better. But just recently for the past couple of days, I’ve been feeling the same as I was on day one. Is this a relapse? Will it ever get better? I don’t understand. I’ve been doing things like exercise and breathing meditation to combat my depression but it just doesn’t seem to help. Will it ever get better? I don’t know.

Troubled

Why is it that when one of my mental health symptoms get better, the other ones get worse? I have symptoms of Depression, Anxiety, and OCD. Whenever one of my symptoms gets better, the other ones get amplified. For example, whenever my depression symptoms go away, my OCD or my Anxiety symptoms are more prominent. It’s as if my brain wants there to always be a mental issue with me

I’m new here and just wanted to get something off my chest: why do I always feel a sense of dread? As if something bad is going to happen in the future or the feeling of doubt that my life is meaningless? It just keeps my mind always worrying

Has anyone ever felt a disconnect from themselves? As in you look at yourself in the mirror and not feel connected to the person you see?

It is not a feeling of being pleased or displeased with your appearance, but not feeling connected to the person you see. I’ve been told that it is called depersonalization. I’m not sure what it results from. Trauma? Loneliness? Depression? Anxiety? And how is it managed?

Losing hope

I don’t know if I have any hope left in my depression recovery. Everyday now I just feel exhausted. I feel like what’s the purpose? I always feel hopeless and can’t seem to find joy in anything no matter what I do. I question the purpose of anything I do wondering what’s the use. I’ve tried to recover by doing CBT and various other coping techniques, and I’ve seen slight improvements but I don’t ever know when I will feel truly like my old self again. I just don’t want to feel alone in my struggles. I don’t want to have to deal with my pains by myself. My closest loved ones don’t even think I have any mental issues even when I try to tell them and explain to them. I try to appear stable on the outside, but on the inside, I am falling apart
