    Default Feel so overwhelmed

    Well I thought I was over the worst but I must have deluded myself. Rather than living day by day thinking of suicide in terms of not just if but when, I had started to plan a future. But it's all come tumbling down and I'm left feeling more of a failure than I ever did. I'm a failure as a person, a friend, my career is down the gurgler because of depression, I'm a crap mum and must be a crap wife too because my dh treats me like crap.
    Saw my doctor and they were concerned about me but with Easter approaching there is limited availability for other appointments so I'm pretty much on my own. I'm not sleeping and everything is pretty much just getting on top of me. I'm also feeling like a monster for dreading the school holidays instead of being all excited about spending time together

    I'm sorry you're feeling that way. Has something specific happened recently to make you feel this way again?

    You're not a failure. I'm sorry your doctor made you feel that way. We are here if you need to talk to someone.

    It wasn't my doctor that made me feel that way it's just how I've been feeling. It's no one thing but a cumulative effect of lots of things with the sum of them being greater than each of the individual components. An eating disorder I thought I'd laid to rest has resurfaced and I find myself back in very scary territory. I probably didn't help myself by signing up to the weight loss thread... Ah well

    You can get through this, one step at a time.
    I think that all your loved ones want is to see you get better. You are not a failure.

    All of this.

    And, I'd like to add that if your husband is treating you like crap, it's because he's a jerk, not because of you or anything you've done.

    Depression is a hard slog. I totally get that you're not looking forward to the holidays. People are hard work when you're in a fog, especially when you feel you're supposed to be acting a certain way.

    I know it's hard to get appointments around holidays, but if you feel you are going to self harm, please take yourself to emergency.

    Be kind to yourself x

    What a day. I'd love to say getting some sleep last night helped but today I've found myself in very scary and dangerous territory. I'm safe for tonight but the suicidal feelings are through the roof and I just can't see any way out.

    Stay safe, OP. Thinking of you.

    Maybe contact lifeline 13 11 14 if you feel like things are spiralling.

    There is always a way. You just might need some help finding it. Sending hugs xxx
