Bad Day and Bad Days

Postby vitasw » Mon Feb 19, 2018 9:49 pm

Hi, I am new. To here and support forums in general.

I've had problems with depression/anxiety for a large chunk of my life. And more recently dealing with losing a loved one to suicide. I've seen doctors, I see a counselor. I'm lucky to have reached a place where most days are okay, where I can get through it and even enjoy it. But somedays like today are really fucking hard. The world seems so awful and full of pain that all this hard work seems pointless.
How do people do it? How do you get through the bad days?

that's the external question isn't it? the one that everyone with depression, including myself is trying to find an answer for. if we knew we probably wouldnt have depression :D

the only thing I can suggest is when you are feeling down is to do as many things you enjoy as possible to perk yourself up. go for a walk, watch a movie you like, have a relaxing bath etc. And try to accept that your having a bad day, rather than fighting against it. instead of thinking "I really need to get out of this foul mood" try to think something like "today is bad, but itll be better tomorrow"

yeah I know easier said than done. :D

hang in there my friend, were all with you
