Mental health matters

It's a constant struggle. I am someone who has functioned with it my whole life. This time of year makes it worse for me. Just know you are not alone. Hang in there 💛

You're right, it is difficult this time of year. We just have to take it one day at a time or even one hour at a time if we have to. The point is to not give up or give in to the depression. I've made that mistake a couple of times already and still fight it every day. Honestly I wonder why I'm still here sometimes but then I remember good things do happen, just be patient.

Even thru all this depression, I am thankful I have my daughter. She is what drives me to keep going. I wish I could fix my brain but it seems to be all I know. I will keep pressing on but you need to as well. 💛

I feel this. It's easy to get to that place and extremely difficult to get out of it. I can relate.

That was mainly why I posted this. For so long I did think I was alone. It's an everyday struggle and I'm sorry you are dealing with this too. 💛

I concur. Ppl say "just stop being sad", as if saying to a person with no legs "get up and run" can magically cure them. Some just don't get it.

Right! I wish it was that simple. It's not being sad....it's an emotional Rollercoaster with good days and bad days l...all that I cannot control. I wish I had a magic button to fix my brain. 💛

The holidays don't affect me directly. Having friends that are affected by the holidays that I then spend the holidays worrying about is what affects me. Wish you luck getting through yours.

Thanks you. I have had a couple of friends recently take their life and made me wish I checked in on them more.

This time of year is rough for me too. I feel like part of what makes Thanksgiving and Christmas such an ordeal is that it pressures you to be among family (or being confronted with one's lack of family), which can sometimes be a major source of stress, pain, or sadness. I hope you and any one else struggling can get through this. 💐

Sadly the holidays have and always will be a depressing and tr@umatic time for me, but I'm trying to make the best of it, especially this year because my parents are getting a divorce so I'm trying to stay as strong as I can for my mom but it's hard, so I completely understand, and anyone else who has an extra hard time during the holidays you're not alone. ❤️
