I wake up feeling like shit and then i can't really sleep because my thoughts keep me up...its mainly because of my anxiety and depression but i seem to have accepted that...but these days i feel so overwhelmed by everything either its work or home everything seems to be too much... and i don't take any medications because i need to handle myself..people around me do not understand they tell me its normal...if it's so normal why do people die because of it? Why do people hurt themselves to feel better...why can't i just be normal for a day or two without of my failures...i know there are others like me i wish i could talk to someone...

      I wish I had words for you. I can only say I totally relate. I am fighting back tears every waking moment. I sleep as much as I can and self medicate many waking hours. I just want the pain to STOP. The only thing that keeps me hanging on is believing it will get better. Believing my best days are yet to come. I believe that for you too!

      You are not alone, I feel the same way every single day... No one around me understands, they just think I'm crazy but my anxiety and depression have taken control over my life and it's so hard to do anything without feeling like a complete failure

    I have suffered with depression since my teens. Mostly I turned to self medicating myself, I've been addicted to lots of different drugs because of this over the years but despite this till managed to become successful at work, find a girl who loved me, gain everything the world said you should have but still I was depressed with increasing social anxiety so I threw it all away, broke up with my girl, sold our house, all my possessions, quit my job because I was sure the problems must be external. I tried to move to another country but came back after one month because of feelings of loneliness. This year I have been in the worst place ever I cried everyday for 3 months and my alcohol intake skyrocketed. WHY AM I LIKE THIS??!! I used to be a happy child but something has changed and I'm always thinking I'm not living the life I was meant to live but don't know or have the confidence to change anything. It's so draining.. Feeling dead inside when I have all the potential to do anything I want. So hard everyday to live, but I'm sure if I can just find a job that brings me fulfilment and purpose then things will improve. That and getting my health back is now my main focus, don't stop trying, never give up on life, this is an illness which we need to learn to manage because I'm not sure it will ever go away completely, but don't do what I did and try and start again from scratch because it really did not help. Just pushed everyone away, now I must rebuild my entire life.

There was a time I was engage with an awesome business and everything I wanted, how did I get here. Back in the states after a long journey in Israel. My bipolar fiancé used to beat me, and embarrass me when ever he had a chance.so I ran away to NY and God,has it been hard. No money no support no family. I try to convince myself that these times will pass then I cry and cry and dry my tears and I go and fight this internal war That's consuming me. I'm so sad I don't wanna be here, I don't want to hurt anymore I just want this pain to leave my chest.

I can't leave him with out having money or a Hindi my depression worsens daily. All I can recommend is that you do something everyday that is just for you. Take a walk, do your hair or nails. Wear a lipstick take a bubble bath. One thing just for you. You matter! You were placed on this earth for s reason! Some of us just go through things that we can't explain. That makes us unique from every one else. I know it's hard, but keep loving yourself and do for you! We will make it through this! I'm going for my walk now. Take care!

    I can't stop crying, sometimes I cry for no reason, other times I cry over a stupid thing that happened. I love my fiance so much and he's all I have but sometimes it gets too much for him and then it makes me cry even more to the point where I sometimes think that I wish I was dead.

    I can't stop crying. I had 3 jobs and got laid off from all of them. This was two weeks ago. Nothing in the fridge. I love to work! I just lost all my children from the empty nest and am happy for them. But if I have no work I have no purpose

I am by myself a lot and I don't know how to move on from it. It's hard to make new friends when you have been out of high school for 20 years. I really don't know what to do. Heather

      I'm literally going with the same situation my boyfriend whom I still love madly left me a couple of days ago and I also alienated my friends as I was with him. My family is here for me but I can't stop thinking about how it would be like with hi at the moment and that's why I just cant stop crying and get to sleep to find at least some comfort from the loneliness

    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. Im a 62 yr old child of God

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?

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.

Because of this thinking all I can do is cry I've left school three days in a row just to go home and cry until eventually there were no more tears to cry, I feel like I should trust her with this but honestly I don't because she's the love of my life and I can't loose her, yeah I may be a sophomore in high school but I know when I met the girl of my dreams and she's the one for me. I have no clue why but I have all these emotions now and I've never shown my emotions with anyone. Also my doctor says I have depression so none of this helps me what so ever and it sucks but hey what can I do besides put on a happy face and go on with my dad lonely life. 😞

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 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.

      Hi! First and foremost, you must put firmly in your mind that you are NOT alone. You are part of a large group. There are many, many people out there just like you. They feel that they are all alone. They feel this because they believe that no one can possibly understand how badly they feel. They feel that all the doctors and medicine in the world can't help them. Even if they find a counselor, they often feel like that person is just going through the motions. Finding a counselor is like finding the perfect mate. It often takes more than one try. However, depressed people like us often blame all failures on ourselves. If the counselor didn't connect with us, it must be our fault. This is so not true. Another myth is that all people respond to the same therapy. That isn't true either. There are many, many roads to someplace better. You need to keep seeking help. It may take a while to find a person or place that is a good match. Often, restrictions placed by insurance are an added burden. Keep trying to find someone that is good for you. Also, dont be afraid to feel that a particuliar counselor is not for you. There is no guilt in this. Your helper has to be someone you like and trust. Remember to stand up for yourself. You really can do that and still be polite. That part of the process is hard and takes time. In the mean time, seek healing in alternatives. Look into yourself and find the things that sooth you. This is not the same for all people. Some people find it in activity, some find it in meditation. For instance, a have a friend that chops wood. He doesn't need the wood. He does it because it gives him a way to channel and release anger. (I mean, what could be better for anger than hitting something?) He says that afterwards he is tired and drained in a good way. Also, he and his family benefit from the proceeds from the wood. Other people find animals soothing. If you can't have an animal, volunteering at a shelter might be good. I find that helping others, like innocent animals, helps me feel my self worth. Get out there on the net. There are a million options for healing. Reach out with your heart and find the things that speak to your healing. Take dance lessons. Find a place in nature that calls you. Don't sit still while looking for good medical help. You will find that there is something out there that needs you as much as you need it. Good Luck, Liz

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?

      I'm totally with you on this one, for weeks now I feel like I've been an emotional wreck and I dont know why,  this past few days it's got worse.  I've no mum to talk to, my best friend is going through a bad time herself with her fella so I dont want to approach her with my 'problems', my other best friend doesn't want to know me anymore and I can't...

      I'm totally with you on this one, for weeks now I feel like I've been an emotional wreck and I dont know why,  this past few days it's got worse.  I've no mum to talk to, my best friend is going through a bad time herself with her fella so I dont want to approach her with my 'problems', my other best friend doesn't want to know me anymore and I can't understand why,  and my boyfriend is in Spain.  Like yourself my fella is the best thing that has ever happened to me and I dont want to jeapodise it at all. 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....

      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!

    I just recently took myself off of lexapro because it made me gain 30 pounds and I had absolutely no sex drive.  I'm still on Wellbutrin and lamictal and I don't feel like they're doing anything. 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...

    I just recently took myself off of lexapro because it made me gain 30 pounds and I had absolutely no sex drive.  I'm still on Wellbutrin and lamictal and I don't feel like they're doing anything. 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.

      Drea, you and I are probably in the same boat; medication changes leaving us riding a roller coaster of emotions.  Hang in there! 

       

      thanks for posting!

      Your story sounds all too familiar. This is ME! Since I'm going through the same thing. I thought I'd let you know I'll be here for you, whenever you need. If you need an outlet before your visit to the psych. 

       

      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...

      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...

     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.
