I Battle With Negative Emotions, Stress And Fatigue

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 331 People

    Look Within

    I am mad with myself, God, people, and life. I've tried so hard to get it right and for years I've been wrong. I just don't know what else to do, or where to go. I've talked with my mom, father, brother, and sister. I've tried my best friend, close friend, and boy friend. I even...

    Giving Up

    My God, up above, I've brought shame not only myself but you too. I ask you for forgiveness but I don't even deserve it. All I can do is to apologize. But will you turn your back on me? I'm so sorry.

    I Tick All Of Those Boxes

    I have spent a large amount of my life depressed, which these days they reckon as mentally ill. Along with that has gone the usual suspects; low self esteem, vast amounts of stress, and lately, during the past 2 years, serious bouts of fatigue. Couple all that with alcoholism...

    And I Hate To Admit It!

    I mean I really do, I hate to admit that I battle with negative emotions, stress and fatigue. It all comes from my depression, my eleven year long battle with depression. It's hard it really is, something I feel like no one understands, I put on a happy face and tread through the...

    It comes and goes... Life goes on,

    mundane and pointless..And I bounce along the emotional spectrum, confused, lonesome, misunderstood...Not even sure what I'm depressed about some days...Not even sure why I care about anything, or even about myself...My mind is torrential...crashing winds and thunderous storms...

    Everyone ditched me last night I cried an I'm

    not a crying kind of person. No one gets why I'm sick of being alone why I'm sick of never having anyone there for me why I'm jealous of couples who get to cuddle kiss see each other and etc. Isn't it obvious? I long for something like that, someone like that.

    What It All Adds Up To

    My story is similar to most . The mind going a million miles an hour. Change moods with a switch. Not many emotions I don't experience on any given day . . In spite of what I am feeling at any given moment with whatever emotion I'm dealing with. I know it will pass. It's just...

    I have long been in a stressful situation because of love. Even just a little and everything. But I gathered. I realized that I can not continue to live. After all, life goes on, you just need to join in its noisy stream.These rules helped me)
