Mental Health Thursday! (June 7th – 13th)

This week has been a pain in the ass. I don’t even have much of an update if I’m being honest because there really isn’t much to say.

Friday I had a really bad spike in my anxiety and it went on until Sunday when my depression hit full force and that feeling of emptiness and total loss of hope started. And as the next two days went on, the feeling got worse :/ Wednesday I finally managed to go ahead and try and be out some more, but the depression still lingers and the anxiety hasn’t left.

At this point I’m at a total loss as to what to do, but I’m trying my best to hang in there. I hope next weeks update is much more positive than this one :/

    1. It does sound cliche, but reading the word “manageable” put me in a better mind frame. I’ve been in this endless loop of thinking of ways stop the anxiety and adding pressure to myself instead of taking it slow and just trying to manage it. So thank you for that. It’s something I’ll do my best to keep in mind.

      1. That’s good. I have this theory. That we each have a level of tolerance. Think a scale of 1-10. My therapist believes that most people should be between 2-3 or lower. I tend to manage okay at five. At least I can function. Lately, I have been between 7 and an 8 most nights but tonight feels more like a six. So it’s a process.

      2. I’d never thought about it like that. I don’t know where in the scale I can still function properly, probably somewhere near a 4 at the very least, but I do know that I feel like I’m at a very high 8 at the moment. I think I’m going to spend the next week keeping track of my level of tolerance and see what the outcome is now that you’ve brought this up. I’m glad to hear that tonight you feel at a 6 rather than that 8. Especially because I personally think anxiety at night tends to feel worse.
