Can't do it anymore

Aug 26, 2016 6:49 PM

Between my health, work and home life - I just can't do it anymore. I know I should be lucky, I have a roof over my head, my stomach doesn't go hungry and people love me.

Try to hang in there. I have been there many times unfortunately as well. Think about those who love you. All you will be doing in transferring your pain to others. You can reach out to me for someone to talk to. Please hang in there. You'll pull through it

Hun, try to hold on. It is always darkest before the dawn; things will improve in time. You are strong we all know you are, if you can try to hold on for us and just speak with us and stay here with us we will help you through it. You're in a place many of us have been and some of us continue to go to. You are loved by your family and all of us, remember that

Dear Vizzallygirl, it is no doubt difficult. I myself have been battling severe sciatica for a few years and not be able to sit longer than 10 min. However, what has helped me is seeing (online) psychologist who gas given me various cognitive strategies to deal with pain. I'm also currently studying to be a psychologist (currently teacher) and this study period completed a unit on health psychology . This has given me a wealth of knowledge . I'm living what I have studied and your posts highlight the key stages , thoughts , behaviour that one goes through when faced with an ongoing illness. Using this forum for social support is one strategy and there are many others . I believe most struggle to accept their new identity and hence try to cope using emotions . This is me. I'm what psychologists call a neurotic and this means I'm biased to perceiving the world or events in a negative manner and i use maladaptive strategies . So together with psychology and my own learning I have implemented various strategies eg using this app, deep breathing etc. what each of us needs to do is use available resources , learn new strategies to enable us to have some quality of life rather than allowing our pain consume us.

I can understand, I've had a couple of suicide attempts when things were overwhelming. But after, every time I've had a moment when I was happy I failed, even though they were real, sincere attempts. Hang in there... choose life, even if it's a difficult one. β™‘β™‘ you can do this.
