I'm not doing so good right now.....I'm depressed, and I don't want to do anything. I am just sitting here, worried about how I'm going to fix it all, but, I have no motivation to do any of it. What's the point?

My sane part is thinking things aren't that bad right now, and then I argue, "If things aren't so bad, why do I feel like this?"

The only answer is that there is something wrong with me.

Which makes me sad...makes it worse.

I need help. He needs to wake up soon because I don't know how much longer I'll be able to deal with this alone.

He's going to get sick of me running to him everytime I'm upset over no reason.

Just by trying to write stuff here ... you're doing something! :-)

You feel like this because you're depressed. That can happen even when, objectively, things aren't that bad. That's a separate fact, though, because I know they feel bad.

And there's no "right" or "wrong" about it. You might be ill with something that makes you feel bad, but how is that different from the flu? It might take longer to get better, but there's no value judgment on you for being ill.

You're not alone; you're there with you. :-)

Yeah I am here too and feel the same way and with bipolar though, POOF it changes so even feeling good still doesnt feel right so i always wonder then why can't I stay depressed??? Not that I want it but it is something, stabile..

That dead flat feeling of depression is aweful and I guess the answer is to just ride it out? I have found there are so many different levels of depression and if you can break it down by that then just knowing where you are on the depression level sometimes can ease the anxiety. and that it could be worse and then even depressed sometimes at the higher level of functioning depression makes getting through it a little easier.

I hope this makes sense and processing any of this can be difficult as well but when you can maybe try and chart your depression levels.. hope something works and yes typing is a coping skill you have found that helps you :P
