Default Felt awful all day.

The past 2 weekends I have felt really low. Today I was working and dealing with depression at the same time. It's difficult for me because quite often I'm the happy guy that always gives a smile and laughs at funny jokes whilst attempting to crack a few of my own.

Today I was trying to hide my feelings but sometimes even that is too difficult. I'm sure people will know something's bothering me and next time I see them it will hopefully it will be back to normal. But I hate the way I feel so distant from people, like I don't even dare telling them how shit I feel about everything sometimes because it could change there perception of me for the worse.

I have good reasons for feeling down this weekend such as physical pain, (unintentionally self inflicted) and some other stuff that has always made me feel crappy about myself.

I want to thank everyone who's involved on this site because this is my release when I feel crappy. I'm already feeling better after writing a few paragraphs.

I hope I feel better tomorrow.

Wow, long post, sorry....

Thank you so much for your responses, sadly it's become worse today. At least I have a day off work. I feel really down and I don't feel I have a good reason to. I know I will feel better someday and that could even be this evening but I doubt that.

If this continues for much longer I will seek professional help. Does anyone have experience with mixing meds? Currently I am on a low dose of resperdone for psychosis, Would I be ok taking anti depressant med along with it?

I have felt like this before and usually it passes so I wont do anything rash.

Thx for reading.

Sometimes work helps me. I've been down a lot lately and being in the office around folks I enjoy really takes my mind off stuff.

Ask a doctor before you mix meds please.

sorry you're feeling worse who cares might be that that your meds need adjusting - could you talk to your dr on the phone about the antidepressants?

I really can relate to how you feel, weekends are particularly bad for me too. No consolation for you but it will pass. I had a real crap weekend myself. Me and my boyfriend had a bit of a fight, we were supposed to be going away this week but no. I am having a chilled out few days on my own. No arguements, no mum hat on, no elderly parents to Chase after. Having some me time which is rare. Spent this morning sitting in the park feeling shit and guilty for being completely selfish and self indulgent now my mood has shifted and hell yea I feel great. Why? Cos I'm breaking away from the usual humdrum routine. Maybe you can have a bit of r n r. Believe me, I'm a slave to life and its working wonders. A good dose of fukitall is definately in order
