Default Why does this happen?

Some days you may feel good with no anxieties or depression at all and other days it is so bad you just dont want to deal with it.Why is it like this,I mean how can you feel good then have a bunch of days when you feel just plain awful.I know it has something to do with chemicals in your brain but why cant we feel good all the time?I mean the other day I was so depressed I just couldn' t stop crying then for a couple of days I felt nothing, I wish it could be like this all the time with feeling nothing,Can the chemicals in your brain change that much? I guess they can.Having a server fall didnt help either.I just wish we would all feel no mental pain.Wouldnt that be nice??

It would be nice to feel no mental pain, xmas, if I could take your mental pain then I would, you'd only have to tell me you wanted it gone and I'd take it from you if that was possible

My Mood: Why does this happen?

Default Re: Why does this happen?

I feel that & wish for the same as I'm on day #14 of almost non-stop anxiety-panic attack-anxiety-panic attack. I'm told if I keep doing the work that eventually I'll not feel this way all the time. Really have no choice but to trust it. What else is there?

I feel the same way as you do if I could take away your pain I would in a flash.

Sometimes I feel just so mentally and emotionally fatigued that all I can bring myself to do is watch tv, which leads to a lot of self-loathing etc blah blah blah - but then the next day something will happen to lift my spirits to the point where I can look up budget holidays on Google, or go out and meet with friends and generally feel that I can hold my head up reasonably high in public.

Itís so hard not knowing if youíre going to wake up feeling able to face life, or if youíre going to wake up feeling like a burden on society.

Hang in there - itís always worth it for the good days. I find gratitude lists very helpful - have you tried them?

Now see I cant go out so I usually just watch tv especially antenna tv they have mostly comedies on there and occasionally I watch the SYFY channel love a good horror movie.I cant wait for spring because then I can sit outside again but I will not be talking to any of my neighbors ,WHY?Cause I just cannot trust them they are nothing but busy bodies and trouble makers who needs that crap??
