Not good enough

Apr 18, 2017 8:24 PM

Does anyone ever feel like nothing they do or say is good enough ? I always feel like everything I do or say is wrong. Most days I don't want to talk or move . I keep wanting to blame it on my bipolar disorder for talking too much . but I think it's time for me to face the truth . It is me not some disorder.

Sorry so long .

I think everyone feels that way at times. I know I do alot. My husband does dialysis along with all my crap going on and he can be moody as can I. He snaps sometimes and it hurts and I feel like well I'll just shut up and won't talk no more. In life though everyone makes mistakes and we have to learn from those.

I understand what you are saying. 😊 I tell myself that all the time. I'll just shut up and never talk again. But then I think about my daughter and how she deserves to hear her mommy talking and then I mess up again .

Hey doll, there are two schools of thought...put up and shut up or say something. I just texted my doc and gave him the "break your legs and here's some meloxicam now walk it off" that is an acceptable response and treatment you'd expect from the person whom you went to for help..right?
I'll probably make him mad...but so what...what's he going to do...spank me?
Not help me?
Point is, we can't keep it bottled up either...
You know, I get people who have no problem telling me what a bad person I am...but then, it's all about me! "Snickers"
I may be off base...guess I needed a bit of a rant!

I see a therapist because of my bipolar and similar feelings of not enough or desire to shut down. I'm not cured of it but it helps me talk to someone without judgement and get some perspective. Especially since I got sick I feel like I don't belong in the world anymore. I've gained so much weight, I have to use aids everywhere I go and people are so rude.

Hi everyone. I have bi polar as well as a few brain injuries. I due understand not good enough all to we'll. I have issues explaining things. And have been told to just say it and not a story. I'm sorry but it's how I can get it out now what's going on. And I'm crucified for it. By the one closest to me... my wife So I don't talk anymore to them in fear. So now they have fallen out of love with me. So I guess it is fact that I am not good enough. No matter how many meds I'm on for my bi polar.

@buttcat. I was in counseling for many years and that did not help me much . 😊 pm me if you ever need to talk

@overcomer. Being bipolar sucks big time. Like you said trying to explain is so frustrating and they act like they don't have the time to try to understand. I don't like taking meds but I know I have to. I lost a lot of friends over it . PM me if you every need to talk .
