Default Hi, I'm Stuck

Hello everyone... I just joined this forum because I really want to learn to love life again, but I feel so stuck. I don't want to bother my family and my friends with this stuff, but I have to talk to some people about it, and because I'm not exactly crazy about the idea of leaving my house... this seems like the right place.
  • I have been depressed since I was 12. Some days are better than others. Some months are better than others. I was really lucky because I was free of this beast for a whole year in 2019 and 2020. But it's back now, in full force.
  • My mom is my only reason to get out of bed every morning. She believes in me and has never left my side while I destroyed my other relationships. I have recently decided to move back home after I started hating being alone, and it hasn't been easy to lose the independence as a young adult. I feel that I'm regressing.
  • My job is okay. I am lucky to have one. I need to hold on to this specific position for legal reasons, but I can't stand it anymore. They're nice people, but I'd do anything to start over... although I can't do that if I ever wanna go back abroad.
  • Everyday feels like a chore. Every thought feels like parallel parking with a stick shift. I get triggered by everything, and I hate that. I'm absolutely insufferable these days....
  • The funniest thing is my friends know me as a very zestful and genuinely bubbly person. But I'm utterly alone back here and it kills me...
  • My favorite animals are ostriches. What about you?

I guess I joined this forum because I want to be my best self again. I'm just exhausted at the constant fighting to get better. I don't know where to get the energy to keep "trying."

Thanks for coming to my TED Talk

Hey coal-light welcome to TTL.

Sadly TTL has become quite slow. It may take a bit to receive a reply.
Even if our scars donít match thereís no wrong you canít make better if you can figure out a way to change your mind.

And sure thereís things I regret not doing or doing. Those thoughts climb my spine like spiders, and then Iím really the stranger in my own bed,

and that ball of nervous gets pushed into every crack. Thatís whatís holding the bricks together.
