Spiraling down but fighting to stay up.
I wanted to introduce myself and talk a bit about how I’ve been feeling lately.
I’ve been dealing with major depression and anxiety disorder. I also suspect there’s PTSD in there as well. About 11 years ago I was hospitalized a few times and had ECT.
Lately things have been absolute sh$t. Sleeping loads, eating less, not wanting to get out of bed or leave the house. I feel a deep and profound sadness. My mom says I have a big load to carry (miscarriage, brain surgery, knee surgery, stalker ex) but I tend to be like ‘oh I’m fine.’ Obviously, I’m not.
Currently I’m on Pristiq, Klonopin and Risperdal (sp.?). I want to feel normal and not like a broken human.
Thank you for letting me share. I’d like to hear your experiences and coping techniques, too.
