Honestly I feel disconnected from everything, nothing feels real anymore like I'm just going through the motions of life. I hate myself, hate my past , hate my future, hate being human. I don't really care where I'm going in the future. I know what I want to be and I picked out something I enjoy but it does not feel real and I don't really care if it happens. I feel like a ghost watching over my body living life but never really there.

@AbyssPhoenix10 Hi abyssPhoenix10, thank you for opening this discussion and sharing what you're going through. Depression really has a way of making us feel apart from our lives and loved ones sometimes. Let me tag some other members who can maybe share their experience with this or some advice.

I feel like that everyday. I feel like their isnt a point to try because theirs no reason. The day just passes by as I try to stay the same. I wake I walk I sit I eat I sleep. And I do it over and over again

My husband died 3 yrs ago and I am lost. The kids are grown, the covid 19 keeps me isolated. I feel like an empty she'll and can't get past this grief. I know people do it all the time but I feel my life stopped when his ended. I'm not the same person I used to be. I have no feelings and just don't want to bother with people. All I think about is him and how our lives were together.

I feel like that everyday. Everything is a chore, just getting out of bed. Forcing myself to eat. Just want to be "normal" again. Whatever that means.

I totally relate. With trying so many different drugs over the years- each one making me feel different and changing my perceptions, I wonder what is reality without a fogged up brain- whether by depression, anxiety, panic or medications. I definitely feel outside of the world. Very few people understand my thinking and so I'm always wrong in their eyes. Without a clear head, I'm unable to adequately defend my position. I just want to go back to feeling content- I don't even need excitement- just inner peace. Then I could handle almost anything.

I work as a mental health therapist, diagnosed with major depressive disorder, SAD, and social anxiety ( lol). I also have RA, Fibromyalgia, and chronic migraines. I feel like I barely have energy for myself but to listen to clients every day is exhausting. I keep thinking " What is the point?" Nothing ever changes, people just want to be miserable. I recently moved far away from all my family and friends for a job ( i like and enjoy my co-workers) due to covid but I feel more depressed and lonely then I ever have. Just needing advice, support, anything. to not feel so alone and lost.
