I'm not sure what was going on but all I could was cry yesterday. I felt mentally drained. I didn't think I was stressed but I guess I was. What I can't figure out is why? Can anyone help me? What i'm asking is how do I figure out what is causing this feeling & how to stop it? I still don't feel quite right today.
Its a question I have asked myself so many many times. Sometimes I believe I am feeling quite relaxed and yet in an instant I am reacting in a stressed and agitated fashion. I wake in the morning and just burst out crying for absolutely no rational reason. It just shows that we don't really know ourselves at all..
The only way I can deal with it, is to just accept it, that it is chemical and I am powerless over it and just have to go with it, in time with the proper counselling and medication it WILL improve. When I have a real bad day I sometimes indulge it just for that day but then the following day I just talk myself into making that day in some way better so I can move forward. Its really a balancing act of our expectations, reactions and acceptance.
I also try to have a blessings or gratitude inventory at the end of my day to keep a balanced prospective. For example I am fortunate to be loved, to have medical care, to have a roof over my head, food and drink, to not have a terminal or debilitating illness, to have hope... all these things just rezone me.
I have struggled with depression most of my life, even with medication I can have a very low dip but it has blessed me with insight, empathy and compassion to others and also I have still managed to achieve.
I hope this helps a little Deanne. You are not alone. Thank you for your post and sharing how you feel.
im sorry... maybe you can try calling the warm line for help, maybe you can call the access nd crisis line nd get the number or ask your psyke group... its really cool... its a consumer to consumer group of people who have been in the mental health system too... they listen nd try to help... but if your feeling suicidal then defintiely CALL THE Access nd Crisis line right away nd tell them... they can reccommend a good hospital to go to.
