    I'm in the middle of a run of nightmares (I've had one every night for about a week) and they're getting progressively worse.

    Last nights was HORRENDOUS, and I woke up panicking, and because the nightmare was about my phone, I was too scared to go near it and I had to fight to stay awake. I kept drifting in and out of dreaming and every time I fell back into dreaming it was the nightmare.

    I hate this. Nightmares like this are always symptomatic of me nosediving and I don't want that :'(

    I haven't left the house since Wednesday and now I hate myself for it. Really not coping with life but no-one here has any idea

    Does anyone else ever want to take a break from living some times?

    You know, just return to whatever ethereal jelly from which the human soul is crafted, and just rest there, unthinking, unknowing, unfeeling for an indiscriminate amount of time, just the fleeting breath of the divine, all bright light and weightlessness, before waking up within the confines of your mortal, corporeal being of hurt and anger and hopelessness? But jut for a moment, you want a reprieve, you just want to stop and cease to exist, only to return when things seem a little less claustrophobic.

    Because that's how I feel right now.

    Quite often. :( If it's at night I end up trying to sleep and put off facing life until tomorrow. Usually feel much better after a good sleep and think.

    I get that feel - but perhaps slightly less eloquently

    Yes I do hun, *hugs*

    My problem is that if I feel that way I get dragged back into reality fast sadly, I don't have time to be ill physically or mentally and it worries me because I will probably just break one day. People best be prepared for the fall out lol!

    Officially diagnosed with Major Depressive Disorder (on top of my previous diagnosis, Generalized Anxiety Disorder) last Thursday. I feel so horrible and my mind is messing with me. Meds were switched around which is effing with me even more.

    Sigh.

    I mostly just want to sleep until everything feels better. Which might well be never. That or just slip out of existence, not die, I just sometimes want to have never existed at all

    Finally was able to convince my partner to go back on meds! So we're off to the doctor on Monday to see what might work.
