Luke727's Journal: I don't know what to do. 2

Journal by Luke727

I feel like I'm trying to treat the symptoms instead of the disease. Wednesday night was bad; last night and this morning (and potentially tonight) were no picnic, either. I don't really enjoy social gatherings (even small ones), but lately I'm not really enjoying being on my own, either; forget about any type of meaningful relationships. Without something to live for, life is a bit pointless. Honestly I just don't know what to do; I may need to seek professional help.

I don't know what to do.

    Never wanted to do it, but I was getting really depressed.

    Just having someone to tell how many stupid people you had to put up with that day helped.

    Psych also provided some coping strategies.

    • Absolutely agree. I always thought of therapy as a great idea for everyone else. I went through it when I was going through my separation and it has helped me immmeasurably.

      The analogy I use is if you think of emotions as muscles. A good therapist is like a personal trainer teaching you how to use your emotions. Plus, its nice having someone on your side.

      Good luck, and feel free to email directly if you feel the need.
