• There is nothing to cheer me up?

    the thing I love the most brought me down so hard. I will not share what that is. I feel so empty, weak and worthless. I don’t think there is anything to cheer me up in this situation. I don’t want to do anything, even my favourite things. Are there any tips for at least to try and make me feel better?

    Bckgrnd info: I am unemployed. I was a teenage runaway and spent many years on the streets. I suffer from depression, anxiety, OCD-PD, history of Substance abuse. Also IBS and I am very underweight. I also just lost my cat and it was horrifying, devestating and unexpected. my bf of 5 years doesn t feel or live any better than me, really. All of these details hold me back from living a normal life. I ve been waiting months to start Therapy even though I mentioned my suicidal thoughts, etc., and I have denied all medications out of fear. I wake up feeling like there is nothing to do or live for. I should be on an eating schedule but that seems impossible. I don t wake up until the afternoon most times I don t even have a proper sleeping schedule. I can barely function enough to take care of my hygeine or clean my apartment. I don t have any friends to ever go out with. I don t want to waste anyone s time trying to get a job or going back to school cause I m a quitter. I am basically just having an extremely hard time doing anything healthy or productive each day. I cannot prioritize my life at all it seems and I have a hard time building healthy routines and habits. I always wake up feeling so exhausted that even when I do plan my days I never follow through. Honestly, I need advice or something. What do I do with my life??? Any advice, suggestions, books ffs, anything is appreciated. Because my life is basically over already and it never even got the chance to start.

    I am sitting here crying at almost 12am, this is normal for me and has been for some time (a couple years). Every night all the bad things come to haunt me.

    I am sitting here crying at almost 12am, this is normal for me and has been for some time (a couple years). Every night all the bad things come to haunt me. The fact that I am a crappy wife (I nag, I get stressed and angry easily, I say things I don't mean when I get overwhelmed. I would never, never cheat, though that doesn't mean much since I'm so bad otherwise. All I think I do well Is make him dinner, keep the house clean, and things of that sort. Yet I absolutely adore my husband. I am also a bad daughter although I love my parents with all my heart, I am sometimes unkind to them. I am definitely a bad friend, I always try to make my friends happy, but I don't see them often for lack of energy, I often cancel on them because I am too exhausted to leave my house. I may only be good at loving my animals, I always seem to have energy and patience for them. I feel awful every night (and day too often) the crying happens and it is relentless. I feel the crushing weight of all I do wrong. I also cry over things that are wrong in the world since I notice more and more how cruel people are to each other and to all living things. I cry over the fact that my clients act as if their animals are disposable (I exercise/train horses, and occasionally end up being a dog walker. All of my clients hire me because they can't be bothered with the sweet lovely animals they decided they wanted, and now wish they could get rid of. Everything is just so sad, I can't handle it.

    Best answer: Please STUDY & get good grades, so you have a decent future. Do not take things personally what anyone says, get along with people, maybe build a network, be selective of close friends, & who you trust. Have some form of relationship with your parents.

    Depression us common, in particular with high hormones. Get medication/therapy if need. Mainy teanagers are depressed, thus try to go easy on yourself, & not let it mess with your education etc, as it will pass.

    Literally do what makes you happy. Do not stay home all the time, that will aid your depression, you can be alone, but do not isolate yourself ever. Positive thoughts!


    Be HAPPY, live laugh! The world is your oyestor.

    P.s things will change, nothing is ever permanent nor the same mr, build an excellent future so you love your life further!

    Goodluck!!

    Hi, I have these thoughts floating around about life. If I fail school, where will it lead me? I don't want to fail NCEA for my school that I go to, and if I do, what will my parents think of me? I am in heaps of trouble as there are times where I don't know what to do. Should I cut my wrists? Should I kill myself? I don't want to do any of that. I love my family passionately but I worry that I am a huge mistake in my family. I have tried cutting my wrists before, it only left scratches though because I was too scared about going deeper. I feel like the main reason for my depression is school and what it is making me do. I am currently failing NCEA Level 1, and I don't know how or what to do? I can't talk to anyone in my family because I don't want them to have these thoughts of me hanging myself. I... I don't know what to do...

    Best answer: A psychiatrist has said that therapy always involves some self-help - "You have to do some homework." I'll tell you what you can do about this problem that bothers you, your lack of motivation.

    Cognitive-behavioral therapy has a very simple and effective principle for motivation. When a task seems like its too big, think of it as a series of tasks that you can do one at a time and start with something really, really easy. If the task is cleaning the house, start by cleaning the kitchen counters. Or, work for 5 min and take a short break. Breaks are good but always watch the clock. Homework - proofread a paper or preview a chapter you're going to read by looking at headings, sub-headings, etc. Look for natural points in time to take breaks, like after reading a chapter.

    The easiest thing of all is just to breathe slowly, imagine yourself getting started to work, and then getting up and getting started.

    Another thing that's very good for motivation is to get more energy. As strange as it may seem, you may find that you get more energy by relaxing. Just breathe slowly for a few minutes. Exercise is a great energy booster. Don't be afraid of exercise. Light exercise, as little as 20 min brisk walking a day, can help, and you can add to that gradually so long as you don't get carried away, make yourself sick of exercise with too much of it and quit.

    People often get depressed with a downward cognitive-behavioral spiral, negative thinking that leads to unhealthy behaviors and more negative thinking. Recovery involves an upward spiral of positive thinking and healthy behaviors. I can show you information about healthy behaviors shown to help with depression. If you see a doctor about your problem, the information you'd want to relate is how you're feeling at different times of day, any symptoms you might have, such as change of appetite or sleep, and things in your life affecting how you feel.

    Treating depression with just a prescription is not a very good approach. Hopefully, the doctor would give you a good referral.
