When the days slip by and you find yourself feeling so low day after never ending day, how do you talk yourself into staying? Im sick of trying, researching, being compliant with what the doctor orders... when is it enough? When will the suffering end? This is an impossible question and i know it. I need support. Please help me.
Don't give up hope. Living with anxiety and depression can be very tiring to say the least. With the proper treatment, it can get better. Sometimes medicine after medicine and therapist after therapist, you want to give up, but you can't give in. It is an illness not unlike diabetes or the like, it is just our illness affects our brains rather than our pancreas. It is not our fault, but our responsibility to hang in there and continue in recovery.
Hey there, dwynjanicec. Has your doctor sent you for testing? This to me is a very crucial step. I, like you, felt the same way. I was sent to a psychology center for testing to see exactly what all was going on. I had been on med after med, to no avail. The testing showed them just what was going on, and they were able to treat accordingly. The psychologist and psychiatric doctor both work there with you in unison to treat you. Getting on the right meds and having a good therapist to talk to works wonders. I am feeling better now than I had in years. It takes work and a little time, but in the end SO worth it. Please don't give up. It an get better. Take care and please let us know how you're doing. Trkey
Giving up is not an option. Find strength in others who stand with you. Reach out to others in groups such as DBSA. There should be a DBSA group in your area. It is depressive and bi-polar support association I believe. Remember, a depression always ends; the key is to remember that it will.
I've found myself asking the same questions lately... so please know you are not alone. For me, I tell myself that I have to keep going, keep pushing. There are days when I lay in bed all day but then there are days I get myself out and I tell myself that's an improvement. Step by step. Please hang in there. It has to get better and it will. Depression isn't forever. You are stronger than your depression.
