Downward Spiral

Many people don’t talk about it but I feel it’s important to talk about mental health, so here I go.

I feel like I’m about to hit an unavoidable wall soon, I’ve been trying very hard to do things to try to improve how I’m feeling but they just feel like temporary fixes.

I may come across as cheerful and happy through my posts and so on but inside my head is a fuck load of negativity and darkness which I’ve not felt since 2010, I’ve become fairly reclusive and sheltered because it’s easier than facing real life, the only time I do is when I’m working or if I need something from the shop.

I’m finding normal day to day things overwhelming, I’m not sleeping well and most days I’m having headaches and stomachaches.

I’m severely overweight and unable to curb my bad eating because it has been and will probably always be my comfort blanket but how long will it be before my comfort blanket suffocates me?

I don’t know what I can do to try and break out of this downward spiral.

  1. There seems to be so much going out of control that I think that professional help is the way to go. It’s good that you have so many good friends to support you, and you will need that on your way forward. Don’t feel you should be able to do this alone – you wouldn’t try to recover from a broken leg without getting medical help.
