The 'I Feel Down' Topic

Sat Jan 29, 2011 1:37 am

A support topic for anyone feeling lonely, depressed, miserable, upset, or just a bit fed up. Anytime of the day or night, feel free to vent out your feelings here. Remember, a problem shared is a problem doubled halved.

Think of this topic as like a virtual therapeutic support group, sitting in a circle sipping tea. If you see someone has posted something in this topic and no-one else is around, then please do help them out and comfort them.

I'll start it off.

Also in my desolate landscape of a love life, peppered with camp queen one-night-stands, I had a date with one amazing guy, one really nice guy, and seem to have totally screwed it up.

Well yesterday i very badly injured my ankle, which means i'm not 100% sure if i'll be able to go to the half term meet, now i'm not the sort of person who lets injuries get in the way of things, but i can't walk right now, and i'm meant to rest it for 3-4 weeks, so i'll have to see how it is closer to the meet.

I'm being made redundant at some point this year. Of course, they won't tell us when :roll: Probably before summer though.

the battle of the bulge usually gets me quite down from time to time, knowing how much weight i have to lose before i can go to AT, and knowing just how much effort and time its going to take :/

im also feeling a bit lonely tonight because it's friday night, all my pals are out or busy and my ball-and-chain has also gone out drinking, but because ive quit alcohol as part of my diet and also due to limited funds im staying in most weekends now...so im rather bored and lonely :/

I don't post very often, but misery certainly loves company, and I've been pretty miserable lately...I hate where I live but can't afford to move, I hate my job but can't afford to leave and there really doesn't seem to be any sign of things getting better...I know everyone is feeling the pinch but this really sucks!

Oh and Diogo, if they make you redundant make sure you appeal, my other half has been made redundant twice by the same company, and appealed and won twice.

Oh, and I've given up smoking which really doesn't help things!

Well in general (infact I would say 99% of the time) im always a happy person and its not very often that im now, however tonight im feeling a bit down. Mainly because its a Saturday night, I was ment to be going out with my mate but he cancelled because his gf got drunk so im now sat here on a Saturday night pretty bored with nothing to do on my laptop and nothing to watch on tv. Its also making me feel down as I havnt had a "proper" night out in months! And chatting to my mate on msn isnt helping as he is just as down as me :P

Anyway give me a few minutes and ill probs be back to the "I feel happy" topic :D

I don't think I've felt truly happy for a long time, I can never work out why. For god knows how long I sit downstairs trying to concentrate on either my Mac or the TV until like 2:30-3:00am sometimes, just thinking why I never seem happy. I guess I normally put on a fake smile to make my parents think I'm happy.


Oh well.

Wow, and I thought I was the only one. I am not going to post what I want to say because of circumstance but I will say this I am worried, and fed up, and fed up of being worried, and worried about being fed up. I will watch a film and look at the hero and think it must be wonderful to have that brief second of everyone just focused on you, then I think that I am not that type of person. I am fed up of people taking the piss, sometimes if I hear people laugh I think they are laughing at me I can't help it subconsious I suppose. I find that certain things now just push me over the edge, I snap at family or friends for no reason.

I'm overweight, have no money, am destined to be lonely, but hey I have an AAP! :P

But in all seriousness, I feel what can only be described as *awful* at the mo. :|

I'm about 2 stone underweight and nothing I've tried over the course of the last 7 years has even looked like changing that, my depression is getting more severe by the month and I'm panicking big time as to what happens once I graduate from University (and even if I'm going to graduate at all)

As for my love life I think its funeral is set for next Friday.

In short, the brave face is getting very worn out due to overuse.

My biggest concerns in my life right now are being a success.

I ended a 2 year relationship in September to concentrate on my career, however, things have taken a bit of a down turn and the journalist work I was busy with has died off, so i'm currently working full time at Pizza Hut, trying everything I can to get some more work in radio/news/tv. It's hard, but I guess it'll just take time :(

Never has a topic been more appropriate at any time.

Aha, I'm currently going through a bit of a bad spell with people, getting a bit of tired of people being two faced, being lied to and I'm generally in a 'I don't know anymore' situation... :(

Ahh well.
If you go down to the Towers today, you\'d better ride Th13teen. :P

It sounds like we all need a bit of a group hug.

I have decided that I have sat around moaning and feeling rubbish for too long. There are some problems in my life that unfortunately I can't control, but there are some issues I can deal with. Today I have cancelled my online weightwatchers subscription and gym membership saving £40 a month. My plan is to get up early and do some Just Dance and Wii Fit before getting ready for work - this should help sort out my 'fat' issues, along with renewed diet motivation. I am also going to save a tenner a week, money I would have spent on fags. As for my crappy flat, I have decided that two years is the maximum I'm going to stay - another two years should help ensure I'm not in negative equity with the mortgage, and should give me time to save a bit of money.

I do feel a bit better, but I know I have a long way to go before I feel properly happy. All I know is I'm fed up of feeling like this, and I'm the only person who can do anything about it.

Anyway, I've rambled on for ages, much love to everyone who has posted here, I know we all have different problems and issues, but fingers crossed there is light at the end of the tunnel for everyone xxx

This topic needs a bit of love. Hugs all round for those going through bad times. :hug:

While I'm happy, I'm sad at the same time. 6th Form is really depressing at the moment, so much that I've been skipping A LOT of lessons. I know come parents evening I will have two very angry parents. Also got a friend being quite annoying now, since he's been in a relationship I've hardly seen him and when I do all he talks about is his other half and what they do together! Which personally I'd rather not know. I know we won't keep in contact when university comes for sure. Don't blame him putting his relationship first but alienating your friends isn't the greatest of choices.

I want a job to, I feel like I'm doing something wrong with applying for jobs. Just no one wants to employ me, I'm at the time now where I need money the most. What with a car being mine next week and going to uni(hopefully) in September I'm in desperate need of money. Plus job = money = happy James = lots and lots of TTF Meet visits.

Being single is kinda depressing to. My last 'proper' relationship ended in 2008 and I'm starting to think now that I will never find any one. I just miss the feeling of having someone that cares for me. I just wish there was someone I could go and run to through these times. I don't care if it's a man or woman I get with next, as long as it's someone nice, friendly and caring I'm a happy guy. Rightt, getting a bit soppy now.

All this depression hasn't done any good with my weight either, my weight has gone through the roof. I'm determined to get in shape this year though and start afresh when university comes.

Oh and when I'm feeling down like this I like to listen to depressing songs, particularly Make You Feel My Love by Adele, love her voice. Depressing music makes me happy, how weird.

Just remember there's a happy ending for all of us, it's just like a film, we've got to get through the crappy part before we have a perfect ending. :P

Well, this PC (my ancient "generic" one) is riddled with viruses and smeg knows what else. Thought it was about time I updated AVG, only for it to throw a wobbler and refuse to install until I uninstall Zone Alarm. :evil:

Been using them both for years and it's not been an issue until now.

Pissed off I am very.
