Just need some support. I have been so depressed recently. No motivation, tired all the time, feels like my brain is rotting away. I can’t stand this pain! I do take medication but at the moment it isn’t holding up.
Distractions might help with the pain.
For some of the pain I experienced, I had no other strategy than to endure.
I called the suicide prevention hotline the other day.
They gave me some ideas and tools to work with.
It wasn’t a call I was wanting to make, but I’m glad I did.
That’s the way I felt all through January. It’s after getting better now though. I hope it gets better for you soon too.
Maybe you could ask for some PRN to get you through this patch? Sorry to hear you’re feeling low.
sorry to hear you going through rough patch =(
Can you do something to distract your brain from the pains? Like listen music and/or watch a movie or something… or go for a nice walk if that is possible?
Yes, distraction generally works, but it didn’t work too good this time. Thank you for the support.
You have a spouse right? I remember some… are you together still? I hope so… also didn’t you lift yourself up out of poverty?
Forgive me, but my long term memory is great!
I have called the hotline before, but not recently. If i continue feeling this bad, i’ll take a leaf out of your book. Thanks for your support.
Thanks @everhopeful. I hope things better for your also.
I have some prn Diazepam, so i took a couple of those. It did help, i just don’t want to end up taking them all the time. I’ll discuss my medication when i see them tomorrow.
I did the best i could to distract myself. It is just so hard when you’re in so much pain. Nothing really takes your mind away from how you’re feeling. Thanks for your support.
Yes i have a partner, and he is very wonderful and supportive, but there isn’t much he can do to help with the pain. And yes, we worked our way out of poverty. I certainly don’t want to appear ungrateful, but these things are providing me with much relief. The pain persists no matter how many times i tell myself that i have no right to be depressed.
