    Having anxiety today cuz my kid is having anxiety. Go figure. I hate seeing my baby in that state. She’s fourteen so that comes with the territory. I keep hearing there’s more to come. I forgot how moody teenage life can be.

    Depression and anxiety are beating the crap out of me. I don’t know how to change myself and habits into a routine I can pull myself up.

    I "liked" your post @DW4210 but it was more of an acknowledgment because of course there's nothing to like about feeling that way. I feel exactly the same at the moment. "Depression and anxiety are beating the crap out of me" is a fab way of describing it! They sure do!

    I do know things I can change - like my really (and I mean REALLY!) crap diet, plus getting back to running which really helps me, plus some other things, but getting motivated seems so hard at the moment because of some circumstances about my life and stress about some things my mum (who is in her eighties) is going through. I have to start somewhere though because I know I can't carry on like this!

    Don't overwhelm yourself by thinking about changing your entire routine -- that's a monumental undertaking. Personally, even "one day at a time" is too much for me when I'm trying to get up from that bleak dark place. It's more like 15 minutes, seriously. A half-hour is fantastic but 5 minutes will do, because it means I AM doing SOMEthing.
    I'll set the timer on my phone and then force myself to do SOMEthing physical for those few minutes. What you do doesn't matter as long as it entails constant movement: making the bed is always good, because it has a clear start & finish, and you can plainly see what you accomplished. Or start your grocery list, empty the dishwasher, water houseplants... you get the picture.

    Time's up; now I give myself an equal number of minutes to brood, to feel the darkness, sadness, to just sit there. Eventually the law of inertia takes over; eventually I don't want to stop the movement because that feels good, while sitting in my despair does not. But it is hard to get to that feeling good place... and sooo easy to slip out of it.

    @pinkflower, you are so right about diet -- SO important but damn, it's a slow road, to change your nutritional profile, stick to it and then finally see (& feel!) the results -- it can take months. Altho, I do notice sublingual B-12 can give me a noticeable energy boost in just a few days. Tumeric powder also seems to have a very positive result, though beyond that it fights inflammation I'm not real sure what it does!

    By the way, please don't think I am offering these ideas as methods for eliminating clinical depression. That is a different problem, and to suggest there are relatively simple dietary and exercise "work arounds" for it is like suggesting somebody could snap out of the measles, if only they'd try. That's not how it works, unfortunately...

    Hoping for a day off from work tomorrow because of weather. Husband said his parents invited us to breakfast Sunday (but this past Sunday we couldn’t even meet up with them at the mall because they had the granddaughters and one of them didn’t want us to be around (WTF she is 15, when our daughter was that age she always wanted to spend time with everyone and they treated her like the anti Christ and that was when the nasty niece was about 8 and got upset if our 16 year old daughter went to spend time with the grandparents), my sister in laws kids are perfect just like her and my husband and our family are treated like 2nd class citizens. Thanks a lot for inviting your grandson who is righ in between their age and gets along famously with the younger one). So I told my husband I still feel a certain kind of way about the way they acted and I would see how I feel about it. On the other hand he did mention going to the Kate Spade ?? store or wherever I wanted to shop for a treat. I am all for skipping breakfast and going to the Kate Spade store, but I don’t know how I am going to feel with the depression/anxiety. It was better today, no dabbing tears, I made sure I had my daily meds in the monster bag! Get what showed up in the mail! My MasterCard debit card, after it just pushed me off the cliff yesterday. I went a little further and moved into my new wallet that my husband bought me Monday (a record slow for me) & organized my purse, I like a tidy purse but I put way too much in there. I consider it more of a work tote, so I will make an effort to downsize tomorrow for the weekend. I used to change my purse and accessories everyday before everything got to be too hard. I started updating my little booklet of passwords, I can’t remember them all (home/work/banks/apps) and maybe someday I will get them all changed to the same thing or close. I started a “to do list”, but didn’t finish it or accomplish anything on there but I started it. I have to make sure I get moving early Saturday for my sons appointment with the orthodontist and then I am making an appointment to go back to the Apple Store again, another 2 hours of my life that I will never get back and I am insisting they replace this phone. When I get a call we can’t hear each other unless I put it on speaker phone. I just want to get things done the right way the first time I call or go to a business, I don’t want to call the bank 3 times to find out why my card is cancelled and to request new cards 3 times and I don’t want to go back to Apple after spending so much time on the phone with them and then going to the store only to go back the next week. Those things stress me out more and add to the depression and anxiety. If all goes well I will get my hair cut and colored this weekend. It is a very ambitious list, but if I finish the list and maybe get part of it done, maybe I can start to feel better. I don’t even want to think about if I can’t do any of it.

    I feel anxious, depressed and alone. The tension from the anxiety has all of my muscles so tight and painful. I don’t want this to beat me, but I feel like it is.

    I was a little productive today. Worked On my list and accomplished some of the small things, like making appointments I have put off making, but I keep thinking of things I need to add. I had a night terror early this morning and late tonight. I told my husband he needs to show up in these terrors and help me fight - all 3 this week I was fighting someone (not the kind of person I am at all. 3 night terrors in 5 days is a lot for me. The first was when I was 3or 4, my parents were divorced and family life was pretty tough. Don’t know or remember how long they went on. Then they came on in my teens until about 10 years ago and now they are back dull force. I am almost afraid of going to sleep. I have had 3 sleep studies, but I don’t have them everyday and so they have not been diagnosed. @Blue Roan and @ Pinkflower, I am thinking about changing my user name to something more positive and pretty... if anyone has any good ideas I am open to suggestions. I just need to work toward changing things to feel more positive about myself. I am just going to keep praying to get myself into a positive and healthy mindset and body image.

  11. Frown ? = not enough sleep will do it every time. Actually I "should" have gotten myself into bed way earlier last night. Now, I am filled with negative thoughts and feelings that "today is not going to be a good day..." Anxiesty and depression (I have GAD and MDD)...and 2 months on Prozac, waiting to feel different, and I don't know for sure, that it's right for me, but will give it a chance. I quit all alcohol when about 3 months ago, and that was a good thing. I just lost my mom and i was her primary caregiver, and did everything I could for her, for well over 10 years...Come to think of it, my whole life (and I'm not that young! So I'm not in a "happy place" at the moment. AND I feel better just having said all this, and grateful to have a place where I can vent my frustraions.. Thank you all for this website, this thread, your honesty, and giving me a place to say what's true.
    Peace, good health,
    May there be better days ahead for all !!

    @ohanes. I have been where you are, primary caretaker and decision maker for my aunt who passed 1/1 and my dad who passed 12/25 of the same year. It has ate me up inside for so long along with the sudden death of my mother a few years later. It had such an effect on me that I just wanted everyone to leave me alone and pushed everyone away. it was so extreme that I filed for divorce and went through with it. I am not saying I didn’t have valid reasons to want a divorce, in my mind, at that time, but I think a legal seperation, time apart to just catch my breath and start dating my husband again. We clearly still loved each other because we got remarried less than a year later.

    For several years I started drinking wine to self medicate and Zoloft. About a month or two have gone by, I haven’t drank anything. I don’t miss/want/crave it and I never really liked the taste. My tolerance was so high that I could drink an entire bottle and not have a “buzz”, but there were headaches the next morning. I definitely wasn’t an alcoholic, it would have been harder to give up. I just stopped having the morning headaches.

    I was getting ready to go out this morning to take my mum to an appointment, my anxiety was sky high as it always is when I'm about to got out, plus we were running a bit late. The phone rang, I raced to answer it and a voice with an Indian accent said, "Ma'am, this is Daniel from Microsoft technical department, I am calling about your Windows computer" (or words to that effect). We don't get any of these calls for months, then we will get several a day for a week or two. Usually I just hang up immediately but I was so annoyed about it this morning, that I said in a VERY exasperated tone, "Oh look, you must be f***ing kidding me! Everyone knows this is a f***ing scam!" And a few more things in a similar vein, until HE HUNG UP ON ME!

    The annoying thing is I'm trying to stop swearing so f***ing much! That didn't help!

    We have a lot of Indian neighbours who no doubt get these calls as well. I wonder what language they tell them to f*** off in?

    I just can't believe this particular scam is still going. It's been going for many years. Surely everyone is aware of it by now. Even one of my neighbours who is well into his eighties and hasn't even got a computer knows it's a scam. He plays tricks on them to keep them on the line and waste their time.

    awwwurz will become famous soon enoughawwwurz will become famous soon enough

    Losers pretending to be lawyers calling people from far in my past. Telling them I have civil litigation against me and I have been warned. So on, etc.-- I owe ZERO debts and I have virtually no bills but utilities.

    So many scammers out there and my identity was stolen some time ago (long story but out of my control).

    I feel like I am becoming an expert on these creeps. I did call (#67 first) this last "legal" place/people and read them the riot act along with about a half dozens scams I figure they may be up to.

    They hung up on me but have not heard another peep.

    I still get a monthly email scam saying I watch porn, this person put RDP software to monitor me on my computer, downloaded my contacts, used my webcam (mine are all shut off), and want $ sent to their BC account else they will notify all I know where I've been and videos of me- well u can guess. Not my thing but they use an old password and first name. I like to mess with those idiots; those and the Nigerian lottery scams that I may drag on for a month for some sick sense of humor I have.

    I say if you can waste a scammer's time, you may have saved someone else from this mess even if just temporarily. Death to scammers- well a slight exaggeration.

    Thanks so much for your honesty, understanding and for relating your experience of this territory.

    I'm so sorry to hear of the loss of your parents, aunt, especially the sudden loss of you mother...all this in such a short timeframe = a lot to digest and enough to throw me way off "normal" (which is not all that normal to begin with

    It's a very difficult to lose our loved ones, especially those who gave us "this life" and brought us into the world. A bereavement counselor from the Home Hospice told me about "compassion fatigue" and recommended a book called "The Caregiver Meditations: Reflections on Loving Presence" by Erie Chapman. So far, I really like what I'm learning from understanding the dilemma so many people in the service professions face, ie permature "burn out" = Self Care Deficiency, in the the name of Service to those in need.

    Also, re the alcohol, every now and then I get a "thought" of "gee, I've worked hard, and deserve a glass of wine or a pint of beer". Usually I can postpone the craving, and have fallen "off the wagon" twice... quick to remember how fleeting the "good feeling" is, and how lousy I feel later.

    How to get a good night's sleep is still something I'm figuring out. Getting to bed as early as I can really does help.

    Blessings to you and all,
    and thanks again for sharing.

    @ohanes a glass of wine sounds pretty good right now. So much on my mind. Thinking of following in &Terisita steps. Just want to get all of the finances caught up and a few things so the house will sell fast. I admit I take an ambient or 2 a night and occasionally clonazapine.. both are prescribed. He took 20 ambien Thursday and 25 Friday! Then he has never gone into my purse, but took what I had left. My son saw him and caught him before he took them, but I am madder than a wet hen! He went into my purse, stole my meds and oh get this for a kicker. He is such an ass that he broke our recliner because he was in something and fell out 2 times. He travels fir work so all his crap is on a sectional couch and he made room just for himself! On top of that we changed from unversed(I loved it) to cox cable and he had 1 cable boxes with installed in the living room where he is always watching the tv. It is just for him because nobody wants to watch his same crap over and over. It has been 3 months that He would get a cable, but just for his room? He ordered me a Riki that doesn’t work. To top it all off, he went to the grocery store after he took the meds & was there over 2 hours! He took all 3 sets of keys, so my son had to take an Uber to work and then he was acting like a damn fool and said our son was with him, I was there in a separate truck and he didn’t know where his son or I went. We were in the house with no keys, idiot. They called his mom and dad who are retired and asked them to come and get him because he couldn’t drive in his condition. He swore he lost his wallet, it was here the entire time and his mom is convinced it is his diabetes, he has told her he forgets when he gets his medicine and she believe him! When he gets a 30 day script it is gone in 2 days. He falls down and can’t get up and I don’t trust him. So I talked to my brother about me getting my credit cards paid off 1 for $40oand new tires and a good my car gone over with a fine tooth comb and my 14 year old, almost 25 year old son and my 35 year old son are leaving. It might take 1 1/2 years because they have some legalities to clear up and a health problem. I have som medical and dental issues to address. Then when my husband leaves for a week we are going to pack a truck and go. I cannot stand liars, thieves all in front of my youngest son! He even has the nerve to say “but it is ok for my older some to cape or occasionally smoke mj. He never acts like a bad ion and just goes and olays his video games. I told my husband that he will give me his scripts since they are free and I will start a stash, why pay for it when it comes free!

    Do I need advice. What state is a nice place to live, doesn’t get too hot in the summer and has a reasonable cost of living where I can be happy and my son’s and brother will be happy. Arizona will be the first place he will look because I have always wanted to live there and she is there. How do I keep from getting in trouble for kidnapping a 14 year old child. Lastly anyone have any good hiding places for pills?

    Thanks for letting me vent.
