The war is far from over feeling a bit sick and paranoid were i live at probably from lack of sleep.i dont know. Ive self harmed this morning triggered by a picture of burns made me want to burn the whole thing mostly.didn't succeed.just really red and i put it away what i used cause mom if she found out she would hide it or lock it up.my dad doesn't pay much attention to self harm things i use unless its his razors. I believe i may have diabetes theres nothing here to eat most of the time band my dad goes to his shows and brings always back sweets i eat cause i like it and nothing else to eat. If my next blood test is positive for diabetes i will blame my dad cause he knows im prediabetic. And i don't know what ill do. But for now okay besides self harming im trying to make a book about kindness. Its 100 pages and i did it in a day believe it or not. I guess anything is possible.when you try and dont give up.
so i dont really drink but the election has had me up so late and i cant stop thinking about it and earlier i literally wanted to drown myself in alcohol to forget about it but now im thinking if i can at least drink one to take the edge off my anxiety and go the FUCK to sleep like... please.... oh also im 18
Hello, I have had bouts of depression for many years. Both of my parents have depression so I most likely have a genetic predilection for this. I just started counseling and have discussed this with my doctor who started me on Trazodone for insomnia. The Trazodone worked great for 4 or 5 nights but I am now back to my miserable baseline of sleeping for 3 or 4 hours and then never truly falling into a deep sleep despite having ramped up the dosage from 50mg to 75mg. When I had the few consecutive nights sleeps I felt so much better but despite having ramped up the dosage my physiology seems to be fighting against me. I have had bouts of crying while listening to music or even just thinking about how hopeless I feel. I have lost interest in eating and kind of walk around hungry all day but have been forcing myself to eat some. Theoretically I have a lot of positives as I regularly exercise outdoors, eat a healthy diet, have a supportive wife and kids who are doing well. I work in an allied health profession that is theoretically one of the best professions in the US. I seem to be able to do maintain my ability to work but I find it taxing that I have to be upbeat, positive and energetic when treating my pediatric clients as I feel like I am being a fake and wonder if the necessity of wearing an upbeat mask is contributing to my depression. I am worried about the prospect of using antidepressants as they have side effects but maybe this is the best option? When I wake up my mind turns into a gerbil wheel of thoughts and I never get back into a deep sleep. I go to bed scared every night of the impending sleeplessness. Has anybody had experience with biofeedback? Any thoughts or insights would be appreciated as I feel like I am in a deep well with no rope to get out. Bman
