    This morning, and many other mornings recently i've woken up and just thought ugh why am i here, just feel so down. My family are away for a few weeks so i'm feeling incredibly lonley in the house, i hate my job and have to work full time to pay back bills, i've fallen out with my closest friend and doubt we're going to be close anymore and i just generally feel very depressed and wish i'd never wake up in the morning. My friends have told me things will get better but right now i don't see that happening at all

    I'm sorry to hear that. Try and take your mind off it; tidy the house, or go and get some exercise, or go shopping, or go for a walk, or anything you enjoy doing, even if you don't feel like it right now.

    i find that in the mornings i'm at my lowest too.

    lower your expectations of life and it will then fade into normality and not seem such an issue, the when you feel strong enough start putting in place the things that will help improve your quality of life.

    sedatives are good in small doses when you just want to shut down for a while when it all gets too much.

    That's not really the best advice to give.

    Pfft..I'm pretty much the same these days.
    If I don't keep myself busy and distracted I start thinking and let myself get depressed.
    Try and keep yourself busy doing things you enjoy, have some goals to work towards, even if they're small things, and get outside.
    Go for a walk, take a friend, and just let them know how you feel. Seriously, it feels so much better to talk about it.

    Aww, I know how you feel. Sometimes you feel life's just a total load of pants But hopefully things will look up! Go out and do something enjoyable - get hold of some mates and arrange to meet up to do anything. Go round somebody's house, go to the cinema, go bowling, go for dinner. Anything that will cheer you up. If you're stuck at home get something yummy to eat and watch a funny feel-good movie or tv show! Things will get better, when your family get home you won't feel so lonely and you could patch things up with your friend. If you want, give it a bit of time, then maybe send her a text or email or write her a letter explaining your feelings and saying you want to be reconciled - you never know, she could do the same thing. Hope you feel better :hugs:

    Change your life; if you wake up feeling low, unappreciated and you are generally not enjoying life then you need to change it. I can't speek for everyone, but most people i've met who feel like you do day after day, feel like that because they are too afraid to look futher beyond the horizon and try daring things. If you stay in the same area, of the same country, doing the same job and having the same ideas then of course you will start to feel low! If things aren't looking good then embrace new things- have you ever thought about travelling? I travelled to the far east and worked in schools teaching English and I have friends who did the same in Africa; you learn so much about your self, its a real eye opening experience! Get out there and just try new things..if life looks crap it's because you are missing something in it!

    ...but you're not a doctor.

    Or even remotely medically equipped to tell someone to take sedatives.

    Hi.
    I have been waking up with whatever is on my mind and sometimes I panic. Like I hardly do Uni work so I had a dream that I was kidnapped and trapped in a house. Someone I knew told me the only way to get released was to make something of my life as i have wasted it so far. Which is a very fair comment. Then I woke up another day thinking I should move home as I am so alone in my flat by myself, but I cant move home.
    I dont really have much advice except to maybe write down problems on one side of a piece of paper and then on the other write solutions.
    Have you tried making it up with your friend? I dont know what happened but if she was close she would not want to see you in such pain! Maybe write a letter saying sorry or maybe just you wish by gones can be by gones and invite her over for a meal.
    Living by yourself sucks!

    Here are my three top tips:

    1) Pray. God loves you. Tell God about it.
    2) Don't get hung up on a damaged friendship. Actively build relationships with people, by showing you care about them. There are hurting people that need your smile.
    3) Carry on regardless. Learn from experience that your feelings lie. As surely as summer following winter, a happier time will come, when you will be able to see things more rationally. Practise believing in the dark what you saw in the light.

    Some people find this song helpful: http://artists.letssingit.com/michae...e-edge-b7bqp6q it's The Edge, by Michael Card.

    I just woke up with the same feeling as yesterday, possibly worse as now i just really don't want to be here and see no point to life at all. I tried distraction yesterday by watching tv and calling a friend and it worked for about an hour but then i felt that nervous sick feeling in the pit of my stomach

    I believe I used the term 'medically equipped'

    So I'm not wrong.

    And it's 'prescribe', not 'pescribe'

    How odd, if I ever feel down it tends to be at the start of the day when I wake up! My advice - sleep in through the afternoon :p:
