Default Feeling low and sleeping too much

I've slep for two nights and days just being awake for short times then running back to my bed and falling asleep so easily as if I haven't slept already .

I have run out of medication and I'm struggling to go and get more . thoughts of abandonment make me feel low and also worrying that my dad is not happy with me .
I've been improving lately but now I've taken a big step back . will I be ok ? Will everything be ok ? How do I get over rejection from my old friends who don't like me any more ? ( this is not about anyone from PC )

Rejection is very tough from friends we trusted somewhat, or even just friends we cared about and thought they cared about us.... I have no answers. I’m not wise (not in that area anyway)

Any progress made with the one former friend you reached out to last week?

Oh, I hope you do find the energy to go out and and refill your prescription. You've been making good progress! But I get those days and nights of constant sleeping, too. Hard to break out of that and find the motivation. Hang in there, my friend.

No progress, it was all false hope. They clearly hate me . I've given up trying with all of them but the rejection is still there . I think it will take along time to get over loosing that group of friends and them hating me for no good reason. It makes me kind of hate them back. ( this is not about anyone on PC )
Thank you for the post

Thank you for the post
I think that’s kind of normal to feel intense dislike for former friends who have treated us like this. I’m sorry, you deserve better ... it really sucks that a whole group of people turned on you very unfair

It made me unstable . like I kept more or less begging them to be my friend again and they kept rejecting me . I'm mad at myself for being so weak and showing my weaknesses to them . maybe they are laughing at how needy I am and wondering why they were ever my friends in the first place . I feel so pathetic

I don’t think you’re pathetic. Lots of people are triggered by rejection. If they are laughing at you... they aren’t nice people (understatement)

I’m sorry you are having a tough time. It hurts to be rejected. If they are going to act like that then they are not worth your time or attention. Excessive sleep can sometimes be healing for mind and body. Is there anyone in your household who can get your medication? Sending big hugs.

I agree with Jennifer. Is there someone that can get your meds for you? If not I hope you manage to do that for yourself. Sleeping is important when depressed, but it's really important that you get those meds!
