Low mood

Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
I know i get low moods sometimes.. but since September they've been getting worse and worse and im starting to feel pretty depressed again. I had a break down a year and a half ago and then got ill at the start of the year.. i felt okay again for a while but its coming back and i don't want to go to the place i was before, in fact im scared of it.
Most of the time i just feel lonely and time seems to go on forever, and im avoiding doing things again, just want to hide i guess.
Im trying to hold on and get better but its getting hard now not to go back there >_<

    Hi Alfie :wave:

    Sorry to hear you are feeling in a low mood but it's good that you are talking about it :heart:

    Have you seen your G.P before about your low moods as you mention you had a breakdown a year and a half ago?

    Do you have anyone to talk to, like a friend who you can trust? It is easier to hide away but coming on here to get it out is a positve step that you have made and not hidden away.

    Do you have any particular interests that may help with the low mood?

    We are here to listen *hug*

    Went to gp in april when i got sick from eating problems and he just did nothing, didn't seem bothered tbh, even though he's pointed out before i seem depressed :/
    And now i just don't wanna go back cos it'll either be the same or i'll be referred to cahms .
    I don't like to talk to friends bout it tbh, not rly got any but ones i have i tend to try ignore it when im round them.
    And meh not really :/ used to but i don't really feel like doing anything tbh..

    It makes me sad cos i used to be really happy and now i just feel like i want to die >.< and keep thinking bout it :/

    Hmm usually its this time of year me mood is better, cos i quite like the dark and winter but despise the summer, i guess im just a bit strange lol
    I lost someone i was really close too in September and after spending bout 2 weeks crying i just feel low now.
    Just had enough :/ feel so ignored and unimportant and fed up of looking after someone and getting messages on these anon things and just getting blamed for everythig and i know i should tell me counsellor more how im feeling but meh ><

    and thanks for the links and thanks i like the wee bear :)
