    Trapped

    Feeling trapped but not sure why. Want to run and hide from life. Feeling very overwhelmed. Feeling very alone. Try to reach out but no one listens. I know I m not the only person who feels that way but haven't found any one who understands. I work hard bit it doesn't show. I let people walk all over me bit then get angry when they do. My fault again. Everything is my fault. I control my life but sometimes it doesn't feel that way. Just want it to stop. Don't want to feel like this anymore. Every avenue I try works for just so long and then a door shuts and I am back again to this darkness. Can't find the right one.

    Hi Grape! Glad you're here. I'm no doctor but you sound anxious and depressed. I am so sorry that you are feeling overwhelmed, and alone. That is a terrible feeling. May I ask how old you are?

    I am 64. Been battling this my whole life. I don't like where I am but don't have the resources or the courage to do anything about it. In the last 6 months I have had my best friend die and then my only surviving sister too. I have children and grandchildren but they try to tell me what I am feeling and how to overcome all this. I know time will lessen this pain. I am functioning and get up and go to work but it's not enough. Nothing I do works. Have reached out to people to only see they want nothing to do with me. You talk and they don't listen and the next time you see them, you mention what you told them before and they claim I never told them that. Not even important enough for them to remember. It's all the time.

    Best advice i can offer is realizing you are not alone in the way you feel. So many people i have talked to (including myself) feel this way. The question I think we need to work on is why...seems like you're not sure why. Maybe it is a sign that you need to take some control in your life at least of things that are controllable. Don't always accept things that make you unhappy as law; rather focus on how to make yourself happy. Mix up stuff you can change.
