Can't Escape My Depression Or My Anxiety

Hey. I posted before and nobody responded. It seems to be the story of my life.
I make huge efforts to work on myself and nobody cares.
I want to find inspiration and friends to help me get through the hard times, but doesn't seem like people really care.
I'd love knowing that some people out there have a good soul.

Interesting reading your recent posts and this one. I like seeing the progression in my growth (reflected through writing) and have found your progression interesting as well.

Thanks for sharing!

Given all the head trauma you've experienced, have you ever had yourself examined by a Neurologist? Depression is a common side effect of brain injury.

Very relevant comment! But thanks !

Sure! Just get yourself checked out, ok? :)

Read his other experiences.

Did you read "12th Round" too?

some of us do have good souls and good hearts :)

Well, looks like you got some support this time, let me know if they all fall away... I think most people care, just not about the same stuff I care about and usually not quite as deeply... close but not quite... I scare people when I'm too optimistic, they do the same to me...

Hi, I'm also having a really hard time with my anxiety and depression at the moment. Have been for months now. It's horrible, waking up every morning like today and not wanting to move or get on with life. Good luck.

I feel like I'm in the same position. I just want to find people that actually give a damn.

yeah so many don't, but at least a few of us do. So we just got to keep on and stay motivated and do what we can. I learned you can't change others, but you don't got to give up your identity or become just another indecent jerk.

Yeah I can totally agree. I would love to have a close circle of friends. And actually keep them, and they don't judge me for who I was, but what I want to be.

The 'net is a big space! We stumble on posts like this by accident........<br />

Your efforts are not being actively ignored by the whole world to irritate you! Sometimes it takes a serendipitous event for us to find such people as yourself.<br />
<br />
In time I suspect you'll find your centre enough to not need others' approbation. You'll find your own confidence in your decisions and be able to work on your self improvement purely because it gives you pleasure to do so.<br />

I've had experience of depression and crisis and loss, and the pulling down and re-building of myself from the ground up.<br />

In the mean time - happy to welcome you to my circle, to chat, discuss challenges etc.

I suffered for 13yrs from chronic depression.. For me, MUSIC was what saved me from making the worst mistake of my life. I think the key to defeated it is realizing that you are loved and needed, even if it isn't obvious. If you want.. you can check out the song that saved me.... it's in Japanese, but there's english subs..

Either way... we are here for you~ *hugz*

The battle you fight is one that I've fought myself, and continue to fight, so I can relate with what you go through. We may be able to learn from one another. It's good to be able to communicate and share with people that have similar life experiences. It makes one feel less alone in this vast world. I am proud of you for doing your best to improve yourself. Your best is good enough, remember this. Having support and encouragement are both universal human needs. You deserve to be heard. I virtually extend my hand to you, friendly guy. xo

I'm here if you need a chat, I suffer generalise anxiety, depression and depersonalisation syndrome and I'm getting better and I want to help everyone else! :-)

keep at the hard work and remember to do things for your self and no one else , <br />
<br />
ther e is many people that care , chin up and keep at it you will get there in the end :)<br />

"A pearl is a beautiful thing that is produced by an injured life. It is the tear [that results] from the injury of the oyster. The treasure of our being in this world is also produced by an injured life. If we had not been wounded, if we had not been injured, then we will not produce the pearl."<br />
