    Does anybody have any advice about getting yourself out of a really bad depressive episode? I'm just in tears all the time at the moment, feel so low and hopeless, having bad thoughts again. Don't really understand why this is happening again as things had been going relatively well. Try to do things I am passionate about; getting myself out, doing sports, uni, socialising. But as soon as I get back in the house the depressive feelings flood me literally like a wave and I am on my floor in my room sobbing my eyes out. I cannot sleep and I'm not eating well again. Scared of the thoughts I've been having mainly because I haven't had any specific 'urges' for a couple of years now really.

    Sorry for the doom and gloom. Thanks guys.

    Sorry to hear that your friend should have been way more considerate and thought about what she said! Have you got anyone else that you can talk to? :hugs:
    Thanks

    All my friends seem to be getting fed up of me lately. They've been saying my mental health has been having a toll on them so I'm just doing things on my own now really. I do feel a bit let down by them, whenever they needed help I'd never complain (and didn't dream of) but now I can't help but feel ever so slightly upset at them.

    I don't know what it was but on Friday night was feeling just so bad, not sure if part of it was I ate a dodgy takeaway as well as had a "holiday" for a week where I had 3 bad nights sleep from people rowdy to about 3am and moved to a different hotel on 2nd day as some problems but I really felt miserable.

    I just felt like a failure for dropping out of education so many times, for being in my 30s and single and on disability benefits and also felt old, I swear I looked at my skin and thought it looked wrinkled to me.

    I think the bad takeaway made me so groggy I was basically half asleep.

    Feeling a bit weak all weekend, a litle better today but a lot of eye pain.

    I think it all depends on the person, has there been anything in particular that has helped you in the past? Well done for going out and trying your hardest to do things that you enjoy, I know that whenever I am struggling a lot, I find it incredibly hard to leave my house. Going through a depressive episode is one of the worst things in life, so I really hope you feel better soon! :hugs:

    They don't really sound like good friends, to be honest. You have every right to be upset with them, because their behaviour isn't on.

    I'm in one of those crippling moments of hating how alone I am at university. Usually it doesn't bother me because I have a fantastic boyfriend but I hate pestering him; I've been feeling **** for over a week now and I have no one else but him, yet I can't keep bugging him.

    Today's therapy session was the best I've had. I finally spoke up and told her that I haven't seen her nowhere near as regular as I was told by my GP as I should have, that the type of therapy isn't helping and that she may not be the right therapist for me and she agreed with everything I said and is changing what therapy I'll have and I'll be seeing her once a week instead of once a fortnight or more like once every 5 weeks and that if I still don't feel like getting anywhere with her after a couple more sessions, she'll personally see that I get someone else more suited to me.

    Feel like a weight has been lifted! You know I could talk to anyone but I hate confrontation or dealing with people in authority so it was quite a nerve wracking thing to do but I'm glad I got over my fear and done it. Sounds silly but I am quite proud. It was for my health so it had to be done, even if it did take me weeks to do. Just hoping that's me finally on the right path now

    Been a couple of years now since i've been unwell and out of life but before that my life was basically contant exams from 15 onwards as is the case for a lot of us every May/June/July and it wipes you out. Just thinking while I'm sat here of all the little heads out there going through the same thing and just how enormous the stress of it all is. It just makes me sad to think that it's a difficult time anyway, being a young person, and particularly at the moment let alone those with mental health conditions... Suppose I just wanted to give a shout to everyone taking exams and say good luck and try not to get too stressed you'll get there :hugs:

    That was so lovely to read :hugs:

    Got my last exam tomorrow and I have done literally 0 revision. It's an MCQ and I went to most lectures so I'm hoping I'll be able to wing it It's not worth much of the module anyway.

    I have my first CBT appointment on Thursday, I honestly cannot believe how fast I got the appointment. Really nervous but I know I just need to be honest and let them help me.

    Honestly, this was me on Monday. I wasn't in a mood to talk and as the appointment got closer and closer I just decided I needed to move it because I was just feeling anxious about talking about my anxieties. I just told her I couldn't make it and so we re arranged it. She's pretty much used to be changing appointments now and I hate being that person. I think she understands that if I feel like I just can't do something I just won't do it at this point. :/

    --

    Had my first panic attack for several months Monday evening. Have been feeling like **** ever since and I'm pretty glad my driving instuctor cancelled on me this morning as it probably would have been a crappy drive which would have knocked me back even more. Not sure if I should actually attempt college tomorrow as i just know I'll struggle and I'll end up a mess and the person who's been bullying me all year is back and I just can't deal with it right now. However I know that I'm just gonna get called lazy by my parents if I don't go in.

    It just seems like no one understands and now I'm at a stupid point where I don't know what to do about anything and I'm just a stupid mess. :cry2:

    Thanks for your reply. I guess finding a purpose and having direction. Currently trying to find some part-time work because I think that might help. Difficult thing is that at the moment even the things I love and am passionate about I'm not getting much enjoyment out of

    If you want to talk about anything, feel free to PM me (or here of course).

    I'm at my dad's house with very little internet but it's great to see him, this is the first time in nearly 2 years. But mentally not doing so well, I have a lot of work to do but can't concentrate over the whispers.

    Definitely asking for a new pyschiatrist. He spent my 15 minute appointment with him (which only happens every 2/3 months) not discussing treatment but instead the recession in Dundee after I told him I would be job hunting this summer.

    Ugh. I'm bloody done. No wonder I'm such a ****ing mess. http://static.tsrfiles.co.uk/images/smilies/cry2.gif Who cares if I'm paranoid and hearing things and sleeping badly? There is only so much my CPN can do with my diagnosis in helping me.
