Exclamation Its Getting Harder

Everyday just keeps getting harder. Ill feel really good for half of the day and then this wave of sadness just consumes me. I can never shake it off. And my bad days are just getting for frequent. My girlfriend and I are constantly arguing and I just dont have the energy for it anymore. I love her so much, but everything just keeps getting harder. I cry a lot and my anxiety kills me. Do you think its my anxiety and depression effecting my relationship? I just want to feel normal.

Hi Jeremy I'm sorry things are getting harder for you. From what you wrote, I think it could be that your depression and anxiety are affecting your relationship. I'm not certain though. But have you discussed it with her at all? Is she aware that you have depression and anxiety? Maybe explaining to her about your low energy might help things. Also, do you have a doctor that you can talk to about the waves of sadness and the anxiety? I'm glad you came here and posted about it

I'm afraid those contributes the major part of it. Like PDawn said, maybe it's good if you can talk to her so that she understands what you're going through. Does she knows that you luv her so much. Hopefully it helps. Do you think she can accept you if she knows that you're suffering from these. Otherwise maybe you want to find a therapist.

Jeremy23~I think that PrairieDawn & Dania have given you some good advice. I hope you don't mind my own thoughts on your thread.

Maybe it's time to take a hiatus in the relationship. Nothing on a permanent basis, but more of a "time out." This gives you two avaible options. First of all, you can (as well as she) have a "cooling off period." Next would be, you able to start thinking about seeing a therapist. To me, when we see a professional, they can not only listen to what we're enduring/going through, but we also are unable to "unload" ourselves. That process, in turn, leaves avaiblity for us to find what we need to "find ourselves" & sometimes find the happiness that we seem to be lacking within our lives, ourselves, & any/all relationship aspects that are going thru a bit of "turbulence" within our lives.

In the end, we need to make ourselves happy, first, before we can "enable" another to find that happiness with us, our relationship, & within our lives.
