Sometimes I feel like my depression and anxiety are one big

Sometimes I feel like my depression and anxiety are one big joke. I feel like it’s not important as other people’s are. I feel like my counselor is trying to hurry me along and get me out of counseling. Like I don’t belong there or need to be there because I don’t know what goals to work on. I always draw a blank when she ask what goals we should work on next. Does anyone have any advice?

@lovetodance2018 I don’t like medication and I choose not to take it. I have some people in my life who pushes medication on me and that makes me not want it even more. I will continue to refuse it and there’s no changing my mind. I’ve been on medication before and I’ve stopped taking it every time. I don’t believe in taking medication like that. Unless I have a life-threatening condition. I’ve gone a few years without it and I’m doing just fine. When I’m depressed I know those feelings will come and go. So I’m not too worried about medication.

I totally understand about medication. I felt the same way for years. But there was a point where I was so depressed I wanted to take my life. I guess in that situation I knew it was life-threatening. Now, I no longer take medication. I have learned to find other ways to cope. Like keep a journal, writing my thoughts, feelings down and trying to find things I can be positive about. I am glad you mentioned that you aware that the depressed feelings come and go. Because that is so true. What has really helped is truly learn to become aware of my body. What food gives me energy, what foods take away my energy. I also learned how essential exercise is for the mind and body. It doesn't matter what exercise we do, just that we get out and be active. I especially like walks that I shut my mind off, listening to up lifting music, and get outside. Our bodies need to be outside some of the time. Being in-tune with what your body needs and caring for your body is the true way to feeling better. Sounds like you are down the right path by your awareness that your depression is temporary. Mine was always situational, but once I spiraled it took me baby steps to get back on tract. I will continue to pray for you and chat anytime you need. All my best. Hugs!
