I'm not doing well at all. The corona virus is the cherry on top of all my already sunk in deep mental issues. I dont like any of this . And along with my bipolar , anxiety , major depression I struggle with loss. I'm in grief counseling now . I have to be. I am easily triggered into unstoppable tears daily now. I feel with this corona virus things have been taken from me here too. More losses in every way.

I am so sorry you all are going through this. I cannot imagine having to leave college and now having to worry if your boyfriend is going to hurt himself. I dont know if you believe in Christianity (I say this out of respect of other people's faiths) but I have been dealing with strong bouts of depression too. I've been doing a bible study on fear and anxiety for women that I found online. It has helped me. I also have been talking to God a lot more and reading my Bible. There are times when I just go to my ro ok m and cry it out too. I also write in my journal about all of the negative feelings I have to try to get it out of my system. I hope this helps you. Just pray and try to be there as much as you can for your boyfriend. But try not to let it take you to a darker place.

@Trinitf.  I know where you are coming from this deadly  virus  has got me so scared. My governor  just extend  shelter in place to line 28. Each time I watch the news  there more people getting  or dying from it.  And now kids  are getting  a related disease  to Covid 19.  When my depression gets to me, I watch TV  or Facebook comedy videos some of those comedian are very funny.  I take a walk in my neighborhood, play games on my phone and pray.in my house since I can't  go to my church   I hope  thos help  Also sharing on this site helps alot.

I'm doing pretty bad tbh. I can't see my friends anymore. It's because of things completely out of anyone's control, but my brain likes to tell me it's because they hate me. How are you? I hope you're handling this better than I am.

@Dingledang007 I dont find religion yo be my cure all. Medicines are a joke and waste. I find no release in support groups really . Journaling is ok. My family is frustrated with my actions when I'm on a rant or ove rye lay emotional. I rarely have good fun days.  Or the moments dont last long without tears flooding. I'm frustrated with me. This Corona virus has m.j sde me even more frustrated and out of whack because my doctors are all video cam and I have trouble with it. It doesnt always work. Ive missed 3 spots with my therapist and Ive tried and been so angry. I'm not getting anywhere I feel like . Trying not to give up on my myself as I have done since age 14 now 51. I'm tired . But someday I'll rise up. Someday.

@Dingledang007 I get what you mean, this virus has really had me in a funk too. And spending so much time at home I think really messed with my head and made things worse. I know you said that support groups don't really help you, but hopefully just writing on here will help a bit. At least for me writing to people who maybe understand what's going on in my head really helps me.

I feel for all of us, these are some of the toughest times that any of us have had to deal with. That is one of the things that keep me going, we have made it through this and things should get better. We got to hang in there. Reach out for help, one thing that I'm no good at is asking for help, I've been the one who helps most all the time, now I do find myself needing help, and I need to ask for help, when I do I find most times that others are willing and able to help. Sometimes all you may need is a HUG.  but you got to ask, can't just walk up to a stranger and start hugging them...   Trinitf, as for your depression, here's what has helped me a lot, I reached out and have found someone special, I think, and it has helped my mental state, I have someone I care about, who needs me and wants me, I hope, and it has made my life again worth a lot more. Even though its still in the beginning stages, were just getting to know each other, but has given me a whole new outlook, and I want to live and grow, and learn, help, mentor, and all those good things I haven't been feeling enough of lately.. I hope your feeling better, the bad is temporary, the good will come back, and the smiles will help others feel better too.
