How are y'all doing? I'm not going to lie; I started this post after feeling a little dash of loneliness. But after my first counseling appointment at my university today, I just let it all out and I feel much better now that somebody listened. So I want to know, how are y'all coping with day-to-day life? Particularly with your mental conditions.Is it going well? Not really? Why or why not?

Very depressed right now because my extreme OCD renders me almost housebound......

I think at this point, I feel as if none of my meds are doing much, if anything....I've tried so many now, and nothing has worked.

I find almost no pleasure in anything, and have no motivation to do anything, either....

Someone even has to cook for me and do household chores for me.....Luckily I have 2 great friends who help me out with these things.

I almost never leave my house except to go to doc appts and filling meds, and even when I do leave, someone has to drive me where I need to go.

No, I don't have any suicidal thoughts, just feeling like I'm not really living, only existing.

Sorry, didn't mean for this to turn into a rant--just feeling really down these days.

Impatiently waiting to see if yet another increase in my Effexor (plain old venlafaxine in the UK) dosage does the trick in making getting out of bed in the morning slightly less of a gut-wrenching ordeal. Feeling like I should probably make my first post here in the Introduce Yourself bit but dreading the necessary essay. Missing my fiance as ever. Looking forward very much to Autumn, my favourite season.

I've been a bit down, bored with life lately.  Not sure if it's my meds or depression.

Hang in there everyone. I have been battling for years. Ive said on here before im about to give up, and just say screw it. But ive got crippling anxiety and depression right now, forced me back home, and my pdoc and tdoc have no answers and want me to see other ppl. SO now im waiting to see other doctors, more waiting , and hoping to see if something works. ITs a constant waiting game with no answers, just years of feeling like hell...............hopefully it gets better

I'm at the NJ shore feeling really chilly in my bedroom cuz I just got out of the pool and have yet to shower and change.

Also, I wonder why I sleep so much.  It cannot be healthy.  I sure hope going back to college later this month turns things around.  My strongest theory is that boredom is triggering my tiredness.  I could basically fall asleep on any couch, anytime, anywhere.  

I am genuinely excited about having dinner tonight.  i know where we're going.  Ive been there before and the food is superb.

I'm also bored. I felt anxious earlier but now I feel like I have an overabundance of time.

Hope everyone is doing a little better at least.

I haven't been on here in a year. I'd like to say that that's because the last year has been amazing but it hasn't. I'm still stuck in the exact same frustrating place I was 12 months ago, if not a little worse.

Finances are an issue in my marriage, I need help I cannot afford (psychiatrist) because I cannot work due to my anxiety/depression/other health problem, I can't get help with the health problem because I don't work and cannot afford it (not that they can help anyway, my last specialist told me straight up there's nothing they can do). My anxiety is bad, my depression is bothering me. I feel flat and emotionless and yet miserable all at the same time. I don't think there's a positive bone left in my entire body and I'm exhausted from all of it.

Thanks for listening. I needed to wallow for a moment or 2 with people who get it so I could carry on.

Not very good, but I suppose that is life. Some tea and sleep should make me feel at least a bit better. Thanks for asking.

To be honest, I logged on tonight because it feels like I've been slipping the last couple of weeks. I was doing pretty well for about two months and we're starting to consolidate meds, getting ready to taper off some. Now I'm not sure. Some of my GAD symptoms are back and sleep is a mess again.

I'm better today. Last week was horrible. I was depressed and anxious before and then got a chronic disease, which makes it 10 times worse. But I actually had a good day yesterday with it, and I'm hoping for a good day today. 

Hope you are doing well.

I am on the edge. ..I feel like I could get really anxious or be okay.  I was a little anxious today  but now it's time for bed and I am relieved that I was able to get through the day and avoid major anxiety by using some self-talk .
