Overwhelmed, and too drained to be able to deal with that well. Which I suppose in turn is scary and off we go on a fun little brain-loop.

^Boy do I understand that. On days like today I'm so tired of being a human being riddled with anxieties and such. I'm just so freaking exhausted by everything right now I feel like giving up. :/

I took my meds late yesterday and I think it's affecting me pretty badly. Someone was mildly a dick to me this morning and I had a mental breakdown. I just freaking wish I didn't have this problem!!! On my meds I'm so angry I flip out, but off of it it's just panic attacks nonstop and I'm just so tired.

I also hate this job and feel like I need to leave. I didn't want to give up so easily though.

Oh god you're really having a time of it, I'm so sorry
You're right, it really is exhausting! I hope you can get your meds back on track and hopefully that helps a little at least. Sounds like you definitely need whatever moments of self-care you can grab

Drained, my anxiety has been getting worse for the last few months and now it's turning into depression.
I feel so hopeless and scared about the future.
I'm starting to convince myself that I have some form of terrible disease like cancer but I think the reality is I'm worn out from anxiety.

Thank you. I hope things get better on your end too! Also off topic, but your avatar made me chuckle.

It's a rough time right now. Anxiety is super tiring, and sometimes the thought of having some sort of physical illness crosses the mind for sure. :/ It's just so weird that a mental illness can affect us on such a physical level ugh. Either way, I hope you feel better soon. <3

@SpectralOwls Haha oddly I was only thinking the other day I should change it as I've had it for so many years, but decided against because it still seemed fitting (that and I'm lazy ). Anyway, glad I left it as is now

@ProfessorWillow I can relate, what a horrible dark place to be in. I hope you're being kind to yourself and start to feel a little better soon

That sounds nice @Percy

Company I work for are in dispute over pay and conditions. It really doesn't look like things are going to work out. A lot of workers are saying they will leave the job.
I don't agree with the changes but the last thing I'd do is leave and look for another job.
Do people really think it's that easy to get another job? We are not that skilled.
I hate the way the world works. Greedy fat cats get all the cream and the people that do the hard graft on the floor get nothing,so feeling a bit crap

^ Is there any kind of union associated with your work because if so you guys could discuss things with your union rep. You always have the option to strike!

^^ why not stick with it but look for something else at the same time?
It'll be much easier to quit if you've already got something else available.

Depressed. I probably shouldn't have reduced my meds but I wanna see if it improves some skin problem I have. Also terrified that I've ruined my life by not getting an education and never having a job etc. I feel like I've left it too late at 27 and now my life is basically over and unfixable haha

You can get back into education or a job at any age, seriously! It might take some time and different steps but it is possible. People often start with some voluntary work as a first step.

Think I might need to go to an employment agency.

I feel like I need a job coach, but not one from the jobcentre, just someone who checks on me twice a day and gives me up to date advice.
