I am at my limit every day. Tired of feeling zero positive emotions but still get the full rainbow of negative emotions. Tired of having to work harder due to the limitations of my condition. Tired of trying to build myself, even with huge progress, I can’t feel any of it. Tired of, but greatly appreciate, spending time with my good friends. I keep trying and pushing to never give up. But as my therapist says, maybe I’m trying so I can give up.

To all experiencing their own “depression”, I will never understand your experience. But I do wish, as many of you as possible, will get better. To the rest, I know you did/are doing your best.

Feeling depression often or all the time, IS exhausting. It seems to make many things twice as difficult. And you don't feel like doing much. If your going to a therapist, Great! I'm sure your on meds also. When was the last time your doctor Tweeked your meds? Another thing, once home do something that can possibly make you smile or laugh or at least feel better. For me it's, YouTube. I'll type in funny animals, (I'm a huge animal lover). Or I'll type in Funny people slipping on ice. With all the huge storms across America in the last 6 months. There's tons of funny videos. Or watch a comedy movie/show. Something to change the depression and negativity.

I get this as well so I understand about putting out a lot of effort w little positive payback. The longer I live the more important it seems for me to 'feed my soul'--to fulfil purpose, not just exist, taking up space everyday.
I don't know how you're wired but for me as HSP empath, already have a lot of energy leaving me but then I have to deal with additional intense, emotions coming off those I'm around. It's exhausting & I take a step back to isolate/ refresh. The 'noise of others' is too much a lot of days. It renders me useless and I can't accomplish anything making me live in a perpetual circle of question.
Recently I've revisited a few online sources of 'my kind of humor' which is specific but limited. I do a lot of searching for gems that appear out of the blue and surprise me that someone out there is gifted w my same sense of humor. It kind of saves me from the constant heaviness of anxiety /depression bc the 'Clown is actually the saddest one in the crowd' but the clown lifts us up.
I'm not good at setting my own failures- slow progress aside or admitting that maybe I don't have as many ultra-productive yrs left. There is no cheerleader except me. Ppl tell me to 'lower my expectations' which feels so empty (I was raised to set high goals). I don't want to feel completely hopeless so I release stress in as many healthy ways as I can.
