ive had a bad combo of external events and depression recently

i realized im in a worthless relationship, i do so much for my wife, yet she just talks down to me and pretty much uses me when she needs relations

2 friends died of a drug overdose this week

i made the mistake of starting to not avoid emotion, that just led to more hurt(that wont happen again)

my meds are acting crazy

and i keep having manic episodes that only go a day or so, then i crash really hard

oh well, a day in the life

Dave I'm so sorry. Sometimes i wonder if depression is a defense mechanism home wrong that protects us from having to deal with too many things at once. I'm so sorry about your friends and your relationship too. Maybe try to deal with one thing at a time only. I know what it's like to want to avoid emotion but allow yourself to grieve please. Huge hugs :grouphug:

Sorry to hear about your friends Dave. I hope things get better for you. A worthless relationship will only make you feel worthless.

That is a truly awful week, Dave. Wow. I find that apathy sets in when I am maxed out. It's like a defense mechanism for going crazy. Write down everything that is stressing you out, how you would feel about it and then put it away. You will stop being apathetic when the storm passes.

And you need a hug, bro. A big one. :(

That's rough. When I get overwhelmed, I isolate myself and shut down. It is the most effective for me because there is much less to control. That, and watching Patton Oswalt.

A worthless relationship will only make you feel worthless.


I couldn't agree more with this.

Life is too short and too precious to spend it with someone who makes you unhappy most of the time.

I wish you much strength with this with whatever you decide to do.
Ending a bad relationship is like ripping off a band-aid. It only hurts right after for a bit and then you're fine ;)

So sorry about your friends Dave. :grouphug:
