Thank you. Yea I guess you can say I'm depressed. Been feeling really stressed lately. My girlfriend left me for another guy when the pandemic hit, Right before my bday, I lost my job twice last year, and started gaining weight I just worked so hard to lose, and lost all the confidence that I built up. I'm stressed to pay bills and have DUI I've been fighting in court. Just so much happening all at once I just can't handle it.
Is that your cat in the picture?Involve him/her in your depression. Animals sense that there is a stressful situation and can act as stress relievers. I am sorry you had to endure all that and last year took a toll on many people.It is important that you don't let yourself go further down this spiral but seek professional help. But you can also do a lot just by yourself.Join a club or take up a hobby. Meeting other people with shared interests is tremendously helpful. Not only can you divert your attention to something else but often, you can meet really interesting people. If you have common interests, it makes it much easier to talk and relax.
Thank you yes I know many people with common interests but I feel like I can't really talk to them I don't even really know how to properly express my feelings. My family never really have me any guidance
You are the only one that can help yourself out of this spiral but you need to want to react and not just give up.Whatever you do, do not take your frustration on your cat. He/she can be a great psychological help to you. What you need to do is to work on yourself and for that you have several options. Take baby steps and practice expressing yourself in front of a mirror until you are satisfied with the results.
Is it weird that I feel weird doing that, I'm sure I will at first then eventually get more comfortable with it
Yea I always good things in them eventually just blow up weather I'm mad or sad they just burst all at once. That's why I smoked so much weed like everyday almost every hour. And in didn't smoke any at all yesterday cuz I'm tryna detox so I can start exercising again.
@Don-_-Don I was watching kitchen nightmares revisited where Chef Ramsay revisits the restaurants he helped out. Hearing their success stories did kinda make me feel emotional a bit, could that be it?
I can see that being the trigger to your emotional reaction.Would you consider your emotional reaction to be a negative one, or a positive one?
Well it happened after I stopped watching it. And in had negative thought going through my mind when it happened.
Alright, then my guess is that after you heard thier sucess stories it made you feel shitty about yourself and your life, so much so that you had a mental breakdown.
Yea makes sense. I've been depressed for a long time and worked hard on myself to get out of it. All of 2019 I was making power moves, fixed my finances, exercising and started dating a girl I've had a thing for since I was a sophomore in high school so I was really happy with myself then 2020 hit, I lost my awesome cooking job my the girl left me for her drug dealer saying he had a place for her to live and that I took too long to get a place for us a few days before my birthday. I started gaining weight again too and couldn't start school because the pandemic started a week before I was supposed to start. I'm in debt again after digging myself out if it. Things were great and then just all went down hill and well clearly it's taking its toll on me now...
Holy shit you sound a lot like me, but to a greater degree.
I'm going to give you proper reply to what you just said here later.
Ok forsure dood
Alright I'm back.You kinds remind me of myself, I pretty much dealt with depression my entire life (like from 12 years old and up).About two years ago I put a lot of work in on myself and I was doimg well, and things recently came crumbling down as well, all of my good progress as a human being.Thus, I feel as if I'm currently back at step one and the depression has made a bittersweet return.I don't want to go into too much detail on my end, but my point is that I get you and I understand where you're coming from.
I do want to say this though, from on human being to another:This is not the end, don't fall gently into that good night, okay?It's all about how many hits you can take and keep moving forward.Take those hits sir, and keep moving forward.You're made for this, I truly believe in you.It's okay to cry about it all, but just never give up on yourself, you're all that you got at the end of the day.I don't know if my words will have any meaning, but I just wanted to tell you that.Stay safe❤.

I haven't been to a doctor since I was a kid, I mean I've gone to emergency room a couple times but I don't have my own doctor because I don't have health insurance.
Does your mother or father experience this too?
In grew up without my mother so I don't know and it doesn't happen to my father. This has only happened to me once. I had a panic attack at work from drinking too much coffee. I never drink coffee and a chugged 2 cups.
panic attacks suck. Watch you blood sugar levels and cut back on the caffiene
Yea I never drink caffeine so my body didn't know how to react to it.
Lots of penny up stuff I always penny up because I have no one to vent to never have...
