    You Promised your self last night while self medicating and trying to fall asleep, your going to have a positive attitude tomorrow and not be so sensitive. Or you prayed for an hour and read Gods Promises pleading for His help. Today is a new day. And. It still is So Horrible. You are sobbing gasping for air.

    You Promised your self last night while self medicating and trying to fall asleep, your going to have a positive attitude tomorrow and not be so sensitive. Or you prayed for an hour and read Gods Promises pleading for His help. Today is a new day. And. It still is So Horrible. You are sobbing gasping for air. Not until you go to a web-site like this do you really see that suffering is a Big part of the human existence. So you now feel less picked on after browsing the pain of others. But, you now can see it from a distance and wish you could HELP! others understand and then maybe you yourself could ESCAPE! this incident of hell on earth. I have learned Problems never stop. That is how my whole life has been. The only time I can stop crying is when I actually stop myself and tell myself the following: I am going to force myself to believe that even if this problem doesn't go away I will force myself to pick up one foot after the other and do what I must. I will then CRY and fall down if I have to, but then put the foot in front of the other. It is so, so hard to do, but yes doable. Sometimes I sing the song "I get knocked down. I get up again. They ain't never gona keep me down". It seems to have worked, because others see me as a success. They see that I have gone through dozens and dozens of hurdles but am still standing. My strength or success or courage or contentment or hope has come from the following: No matter how shitty my life has been, I never gave up my Bible or my Prayer. Faith is a verb. It isn't sitting there crying. It is forcing yourself up, forcing yourself to smile, forcing yourself to ask another person how they are, forcing yourself to help another. Forcing yourself to read the Bible and Pray. Does it get easier? Only when we don't give up on the Promises of God. But to be HONEST the problems never stop. But If I could do it anyone can do it.

    Okay well I'm 17 for quite a while I've been feeling really anxious then it turned into negative thinking. I've started thinking negatively about people my family my friends and sometimes my boyfriend. My sister let me stay at her place for a few days to try make me get my mind off everything.

I've started thinking negatively about people my family my friends and sometimes my boyfriend. My sister let me stay at her place for a few days to try make me get my mind off everything. Then as soon as I got back home I got a call from my best friend who's mom got hit by a car so I went straight to the hospital and her mom passed away the same day. I already don't deal well with death but I've had to shove all my problems aside to be strong for her and I can't tell you how hard its been. As soon as I get home I just break down. My sadness has become really bad which makes everything worse. I'm trying my best I've made a book full of quotes and positive thinking but then every noun and again everything hits me and it feels as if everything I'm doing isn't working and won't. What should I do?

    I'm a sophomore in college. And for the past two years, I have gone by making only shallow relationships with people, the kind where you can stop on the sidewalk and talk to them for a few minutes and go on your merry way. But in my two years at this college, I have been unsuccessful in maintaining an actual relationship with another person who I didn't meet in high school. I had a lot of solid friends in high school who I still talk to on a daily basis. But at college, I can go entire days without talking to anyone, and I do have a roommate. I just don't understand why I can't seem to actually make a friend there. I try to make plans with people, but they always end up falling through or the person is busy. I've been depressed for the past semester and every time I come home I cry myself to sleep. I really don't want to go back.

      I don't have any advice, I wish I did because I would apply it to myself. I just wanted you to know that you're not alone, I could have written your text word for word. Im at the end of my rope now pretty much and I go to bed hoping that I never wake up x

      I don't really know what to do. I feel like dying everytime I disappoint my mom. Lately I can't stop crying and that just ends in her yelling at me. I just want her to hug me and tell me everything is going to be okay. But she's barely even talking to me. What can I do?

      I feel this way too. Sometimes I talk to my roommate but lately she's been busy and I've been getting mad at her for almost no reason. Even when I've tried to join clubs and organizations I still only see people during the meetings/we still only talk about superficial things.

    lately this week i have been working for 5 days straight and constantly just mentally and physcially in pain. i already have a bad condition with my back and work just doesn't care or just dont understand. these past weeks several people including my family have been screaming getting me mad getting me funstrated and i cant help but cry because of the stress and the weakness i have in me. today i had work and i was already not in the mood to work since the morning no energy no nothing my soul was completely empty. i got a phone call from a costumer and i was trying to help her but nothing could go through her thick head i helped her but nothing she was abusing me i had to go up to one of my workers and tell her to take the call for me and i broke down and cried infront of her front of even all the costumers were staring at me. they had no idea what was going on so i went to the break room and drank water i ended up choking on my water and i went into the bathroom to just take it out break down and cry i looked in the mirror and i said to myself " i just want to go home" the managers were not helpful but i just sat down and calmed myself. I've had enough and all i want to do is sit in the corner and just cry i couldnt take it no more. i think i need someone to talk to you but i just dont want to.

I had to call my manager and ask to be left home cause i couldn't face people looking at me. I felt i was under pressure at work plus other personal problems.

I still keep positive and keep saying to myself that moments like that are only a matter of time, and they'll go away. But then, i had another break down a few days ago when i felt really lonely.. and i couldn't stop crying. Try to take a break if you think it's getting worse. I don't wish to anyone to go through these kind of moments. Hope you are feeling better now. Mind yourself and keep positive, all these will pass.

    I am struggling really bad of late with depression. I've struggled with it since about 14, I've had numerous therapies and drugs and none that have seemed to help me. I stopped taking citalopram 3 years ago and recently been but back on fluoxetine. I am awaiting counselling services but it's been over 6 months, I contacted the company that does in it my local area and they said they'd have to call me back as they are in the process of moving offices which really annoyed me as they never called me back and I feel as though moving offices was more important than my own self sanity. so therefore; I got stuck in a viscious circle of believing that even those that are supposed to help don't care. I went back to the doctor and still haven't heard anything. The problem with my doctors is it used to be a family run practice now its a health centre which basically means every time I go I see a different doctor. Lately, I can't stop crying I even resorted to harming myself again. I really want anybody out there to give me some advice on how to speed up counselling as at the moment am alone holding down my job forcing a fake persona which makes me feel more alone as nobody know what its like behind closed curtains.

Perhaps you could go to the hospital or call a support group like NAMI. They should be able to help you. https://www.nami.org/ I truly wish you a prompt recovery. I'll be praying for us.

I am 20 years old, and a student, also I am a very logical and calm person. I have seen a lot of people giving support to eachother in comments but what I need is a solution, being dysfunctional and feeling insane is not an option for me, what bothers me is I cannot control it. Could it be a matter of hormones? I have polycistical ovaries, or is it because I usually don't express anger or sadness so now it has gotten to the point where all those emotions are just flowing out without consulting with my brain. I feel confused and lost ( and crazy), can someone please help me?

Like yourself, I want this emotional roller coaster to end but I cant see a light at the end of the tunnel.... I think I'm going to put a funny film on to make me laugh cos I'm sick to death of crying. Hopefully together we can get through this. Kelly.

      I understand that. I'd rather have my bf think I was lazy, than admit that I was becoming paralyzed from my depression. The only people who have seen this side of me, was my daughters.

Last night I admitted to him. Yes I was afraid he'd bolt,wouldn't understand. He was loving and supportive, however hurt, because he felt I didn't trust him or our relationship. That wasn't it at all. I was more afraid of confronting it, head on, to myself. So if you feel that he's the one and you trust him and believe in your relationship, talk to him. There's not a quick fix for what we are going through, we shouldn't do it alone. Holding on to hope!

So now I'm back to randomly feeling depressed for absolutely no reason, getting mad at my boyfriend for no reason, and the worst is the uncontrollable crying for no reason.  I know I need to do something, but I don't want to go back on lexapro because of the weight gain and having no sex drive.  I have an appointment with my psychiatrist next week, but it's going to feel like a very long time.  One minute I'm fine and the next I'm trying to keep myself from sobbing. i have absolutely no control over it.

      I am breaking up with my boyfriend every other day. I cry until it hurts, and still can't stop. I have outbursts of anger then tears! I have never taken antidepressants because I have a fear of prescription drugs, and usually they cause more problems then solutions. Just a bandage for a gapping wound! So I support your decision and believe you are capable of handling this with your own strength. 

       

      Hang in there...and I've found in my 15 years of self treatment...what u put in your body makes a HUGE difference in your emotions and exercise!

    Good advice, Rusty!  And I think you are right.  I had my crying time, and then watched some tv, took a xanax and went to bed.  I still feel like crying this morning, but it's more under control.  Thanks so very much for your reply!  It helps a lot to know someone is out there.

     When my depression was bad I was beyond tears. I felt as though my emotions were locked away and I just couldn't cry.  This was unusual because I am quite an emotional person. So I would take the crying as a good thing. It means you are feeling emotions and letting them go. Let them go for a while and then take stock and get out again. Be with other people and focus outside yourself and not "inside".So after you have had a really good cry ( and this might take days or even weeks, dry your eyes. Try not to dwell on negative things. Distract yourself with a funny movie or something which gives you some pleasure. Crying is not a bad thing.....it releases some calming brain chemicals and maybe you need them right now. Rusty

      I agree crying can be good for you and can be a good release of emotions. The problem is that it doesn't come at times that are socially acceptable. Like EVER! Sure you can cry for an hour or a day or a few days! And it may even be 'good for you' but how can it be good for your life!?

      If you have a life, it can never be a good thing to hide and cry for days straight! My problem when I can't stop crying or feeling a whirlwind of emotions, is not that I can't cry or can feel, obviously, my problem is living my life! You can't go out and BE with other people, you feel bad enough already, the last thing you need is for your friends to be worried about you. As if you can hide the tears or sadness upon you face.  When I spend all day and night crying and feeling so low I can't fall anymore! I just want to be alone! 

       

      I don't have a solution. All I know is one thing doesn't work for everyone.  Turn on some comedy. Smoke a dubbie. Do something that makes you feel different, something that might make you forget how crappy you felt. But it will return. It always does. See a doctor or a psychiatrist sometimes having a neutral person to listen can make a huge difference.

       

      Most of all, hang it there because, this too shall pass.
