Sorry to hear that you’re still feeling down. You’ve been feeling this way for a while now, haven’t you? When you’ve been dragging around feeling awful for a while, it’s worth considering an appointment with the doctor to discuss how you’re feeling. Is that a possibility for you?
Looking at the brighter side, you say that you’re trying to function. That is awesome. Those of us with chronic conditions that make our lives difficult do have to try our best to function. Good for you for trying.
Here’s something that @Linda4 mentioned a while ago:
I read this thread again and took note of your comments about being constantly sad, and being tired of all this. It sounded like you may be suicidal.
Linda4 mentioned going to an ER or finding a hotline if you’re feeling so badly that your thoughts drift to suicide. (We do get concerned about people here.) You probably didn’t realize that there’s a link to a hotline right on the home page of this community! On the Home Page, look to the top right and you will see a “Help” tab. That’s where the hotline information is waiting for you. When you need it, it’s there.
You say you’re feeling “a little down”. And like I said, we get concerned. Will you promise us that if you start feeling “a lot down” that you’ll go see a doc, go to the emergency room, or call the hotline? All of us feel a little down sometimes, but there’s no need to have to live with “the black dog” (that’s what a famous guy once called his depression) forever.
Will you promise us that you’ll reach out to someone who can help?
