I Battle Depression

I had a tattoo appointment yesterday. I was a complete grumpy asshole. I didn’t mean to be, I just couldn’t shake the bad mood. I didn’t even sit through the whole session. I was bored, restless, annoyed, sad... I don’t get joy from the same things I used to and it’s getting worse. I’ve tried to shake it for weeks now. I can’t talk to anyone about it so I’m left feeling crazy and ashamed for not being happy when I know I should. This is a slow and terrible process that I feel hopelessly unable to shake out of. :-(

I find it’s best for me to shut myself away until the feeling subsides.
I think people at work know when I’m having a bad day as I go very quiet and they let me be.
We can’t be happy all of the time and we will always have days where we can’t motivate ourselves, get out of bed, be all smiley or interact with people. It’s not your fault, it’s the complex brain.

@CareBear420 I wouldn’t worry too much, I’ve lost so called friends because they weren’t too bothered or there when I needed them. Proper friends will stick with you through thick and thin.
And the people on here are always ready to chat, discuss or lend support, sometimes it just what is needed.

I just can’t bring myself to explain anything to anyone. ‘I’m depressed.’ Is not a convo I want to have with anyone I know IRL.

@CareBear420 unless people have experienced it, they will never fully understand. You can always pm me to talk when you are feeling down.

I’m going through the same all I use to enjoy, all that use to get me through the day feels like nothing anymore it’s all just so empty. I’m sorry your feeling the same way and I wish I could give an answer to help or say something to make you feel better 😔

@LeahUnknown I’m sorry you feel that way as well. I know I’m under a LOT of stress and pressure in about a dozen different ways so hopefully when those issues are resolved it get better but feeling like this sucks.
It's only going to get worse

I hope it doesn’t get worse. I’ve tried jogging, taking vitamins, watching funny movies... anything that will elevate my mood.
@CareBear420 how about volunteering?

@Quoththeraven I stay very active with my kids school and husbands work functions. Any free time I have I use to jog....which is pretty rare.

You may need to see a doctor for some medicine

@rokrchik1211 I’m with you on that, I wouldn’t function without them. Always worth looking into.

Taking pills is something I don’t want to do.
