Why is it with this damned depression that you can feel quite happy and then suddenly it hits you like a tonne of bricks and you are stuck in the middle of this deep depression. I dreaded Christmas but it wasn't as bad as I thought, but maybe I hoped that the new year would be different, but it isn't. Sorry to bore you but I have been trying to keep all of this bottled up, but I can't do it anymore. I am avoiding everyone so that I don't have to talk to them. I have an eating problem too, so that when I get very depressed I stop eating, which in turn makes me more depressed and wobbly. I am so fed up by everything.
Anyway Happy New Year everyone. <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/wink.gif">
Now this I can totally relate to. Although I've not been on the emotional rollercoater very long compared to some I understand exactly where you are coming from. I often wonder when I get a low spell if it is worth trying or whether I just felt better when I was constantly low and at least I didn't expect any more. However for the last 3 days I have been feeling OK and all I can say is hold in there. You know it will get better and when it does you will forget all about how you are feeling now.
Thanks for that. It's just so annoying you feel great and think why can't I feel like this all of the time, planning things is hard because you don't know how you are going to be feeling on that day. And it's good to hear from a fellow UK person!!
The same thing happens to me Jade. One minute I'm up and the next it's horrible. The simplest task turns into an over whelming weight on my shoulders and it really is nothing to get all up tight about. I wake in the morning and think about the endless day ahead of me and it just drags you down further. It's really mind thing. You sit there thinking about how horrible things are and you really should just get up and tackle them and get it over with. I find that the best way to deal with that. Hang in there jade, I just went thru 5 days of hell and I made it thru with out a scratch. Don't get me wrong I'm still fighting it every second I'm awake. And I'm awake alot. Take care Jade and we will talk another day.
