RANT WARNING ️
Sorry to come here again to blurt our all my problems but I need some suggestions… I just dunno what to do with myself. I’m in a massive funk (depressive state) and can’t seem to shake it. I was just looking through some old art books of mine and I used to be so creative and have such a unique mind. Now I feel like all of that is just gone and all I’m left with is a brain that just doesn’t work properly anymore. I don’t know if it’s the SZA or my meds but I just feel ‘blugh’. Especially at the moment though. I would love if anyone has any suggestions on how to cope with this state because I just want to die right now. I also don’t want to take my meds because I’m sick of how they are making me feel evn though it’s helping my psychosis. The only other thing that seems to be helping is being around people or talking to people because then it kind of takes me out of my own head but as soon as that’s done I’m back to feeling the same. Any suggestions? How do you guys get through it? ️
Distractions as you’ve mentioned are very potent method when dealing with your darker days. And conscious daily disciplines, doing little things daily will provide a great benefits when it comes to self care.
We might never be the same again, and that’s okay. It is possible to discover new things, something else might recapture and reignite your attention once again. Keep looking for it I suppose.
I know what you’re going through. I’m in the same situation right now, and the only thing that helps is to keep busy. It can get hard, but you can do it.
I kept holding this false hope sometimes that something will come around and make me recover immediately but to me recovery has been a process. One step at a time. I take my meds. Focus on getting rid of my depression and psychotic symptoms first. Then work slowly to rebuild your dreams. Maybe you have a new perspective to give to your art now because mental illness changed your views. Who says only those who are mentally healthy have something to contribute? Maybe you can start new even if you can’t go back to where you were. I truly feel that things aren’t that bad even though I can’t go back to my old life. I am the same I need to be around people though I used to be an introvert. I go to many support group classes and activities. It’s nice to be with people who understand you. I also do day treatment which mostly challenges you to think positively and try to readjust to society. Now day treatment has given me more confidence and I will go to substitute teacher training class starting next week. You need to take baby steps. Get meds sorted. Get better from depression. Exercise, take meds, talk to people. The light is waiting for you if you walk the road with care.
I find going out for a walk helps on my darker days. Also music. Sometimes writing down lists of things helps me not focus on the bad so much and even can make me laugh a bit. I try watching things that are comedic too (like vine compilations) cause at least maybe I’ll see something ridiculous.
Other than that you said you used to do art maybe try to redraw some of your old stuff? I find it helps me to relax sometimes.
Thank you all for you’re reploes! It’s helpful to know I’m not the only one who experiences this. I feel like the depression is lifting slightly now but I’m in the process of increasing seroquel which is making me feel not so great
