I've sat on the edge here watching for a few weeks, not sure what I'm experiencing but I think maybe depression and a sense of uselessness but I don't want to disturb lifeline because they have to deal with people really struggling.
I make it through each day but occasionally find things a bit more of a struggle and stuff comes out of my eyes and makes my cheeks wet and my chest heave and I'm just a bit lost but don't really know what I can do by being here except maybe to not be alone
Firstly, I want to thank you for coming onto the forum and sharing your post. It's great that you've felt comortable to share. You mention that you are reluctant to contact lifeline, but I want to reassure you that you are welcome to contact them anytime. You wouldn't be distrubing them :-) I'm sorry to hear that you're finding things to be more of a struggle at times. Many of us can relate to those feelings, you're not alone.

Hi @Blueflyer. Good to have you on the Forum. I found this site about 2 & 1/2 years ago. Saved my sanity. People struggling with depression and anxiety and PTSD like me. It's comforting to know you're not alone.
Feeling as you do, it might be helpful to go and see your gp. Get a mental health plan from them and a referral to a psychologist. I've had a lot of help with my depression from my gp and psychologist . Welcome.
We are here listening and caring, Blueflyer. I'm so sorry you're feeling depressed. Have you thought about telling your GP and checking out a psychologist? It can help a great deal to talk with someone who's trained to walk people with depression through it and back into the light. Caring very much. Feel free to write again any time. We are here. Love from Twerp.
