Hello,

Dealing with depression means that every day can be different. So, how are you feeling today? Are you having a good or bad day?

Please share :)

@Hidden username I am feeling pretty good today for the first time in weeks! It was the first night in a long time that I didn't wake up multiple times throughout the night feeling anxious. I hope this feeling continues and I wish a good day to you all!

I feel robotic...I'm awake I think? but feeling really strange...as if I'm here but not visible..I just don't know who I am anymore....since turning 70 and so far having a bad year...sometimes I wonder if its still my depression....or if I am withdrawing....I feel my soul is just so tired

...I know I'm waffling a little..I feel confused...sorry to sound so negative ..love and peace to all xx

I am having a good day so far, it will change when my daughter comes in from work with granddaughter from nursery.She steps in front door and shouts to,her son to look after his sister and that is all she will do for the rest of the evening, shouting either granddaughter as done something she shouldn't have done she shouts you are doing my head in

HOW DO I COPE

I go into my bedroom(which is down stairs) I shut the door read a book or out TV on loud so I can't hear what is going on. Only come out if she or her partner as done something for evening meal. If not I will do something for me, they will not eat if I have done something for all of us. If eldest comes in with or without grandsons, goes to fridge or freezer and asks who as used so and so usually it is me,he will say that was mine some times my daughter says the same. My way of dealing w with it is to go to my room and shut the door, they treat me as a little boy.I go to my docs every 4 weeks and we just talk which is a great help, he gives me my prescription,(no medicine for depression) Talking is enough for me.

I take each day as it comes, try to have a focus for that day. Today is pretty good, but it gives me a nudge every now and again. H

@Hidden username I had a similar period of a few months that turned out to be my psych meds conflicting with a statin I had recently started. I'm bipolar but had never had "psychotic" symptoms or dissociation before. I was on Quetiapine at the time.

Go to your doctor - good luck! ❤
