I need help

I need your support. I know some of you and others are quiet supporters, but I need your prayers, your fingers crossed, you to knock on wood or whatever you believe in. I am going into a depressive episode at the WORST TIME. A week before finals with tons to do and the night before my big job interview of which I’m not getting ANY sleep for at this rate.

I need to pass my classes this semester. I need to land this job. I need my mental health back. I beg all of you to help me in my time of need. Just think about your friend from Chicago who thinks about you and wishes the best for all of you.

Thanks guys.

Barbie.

  1. You can get through this. Try to stay as positive as you can, do little things each day to make yourself happy and you’ll come out of it fine. All the best, thinking of you! X

  2. You’ll be in my prayers. I know what you’re going through and it’s so rough. Hang in there! We’re all thinking about you! πŸ™‚

  3. Big hugs sent your way!

    It is very tough to have depression episodes when you need to get things done (very familiar with them here). I am rooting for you to do well! Make sure you take care of yourself during this time and do something you enjoyed when you were in a regular happy mood. The chanting works really well.

    Try to keep the thought of “the world will end if I don’t…” out of your mind and replace it with how well you are doing to prepare for your challenges or watch a funny sitcom and get out of the mind for a bit. I know I live in my thoughts sometimes, I get swamped by the thoughts of “what I have to do” or “the world might end if I don’t do A, B, and C” so I use distractions and I make a list of what I learned and accomplished that week to feel better. Even taking a shower, learning one word in Russian, or feeding the cats goes on that list and it makes me feel so much better reading it.

  4. in the same boat as you… I ma making reminders in my phone and around the house.. to keep me focus. I am more in a manic state, but that can be as troubling as a depressive phase….JUST MAKE REMINDERS TO FOCUS YOURSELF. Wish you luck! (just have to work that authoritative voice in your mind.. and see the depression or mania as a child who needs guidance)
