@kayjoy HI kayjoy, I'm sorry you're struggling. Mental health is a difficult thing to manage, especially if you feel like you're doing it alone. We're all here for you in the Carenity community. What helps me when I'm in a bad place is talking to someone or throwing myself into one of my hobbies or passions. Do you have someone you can share what you're feeling with or do you have a hobby you can put your energy into?
Hello everyone, I hope you don't mind that I'm tagging you. Does anyone have any tips or words of advice for kayjoy? What do you do to feel better and stay feeling better?

@kayjoy @dustnbones001 if you or anyone ever need to talk I'm here to listen. I have been told that I am a great listener. (I think it's because I don't know the right words to say) I suffer from depression, anxiety, BDD and extremely low self-esteem. When things seem overwhelming know I am here. I will listen without judgement, I feel the same way. We all need someone we can talk/vent to.

I'm sorry. I know it's tough...I've been suffering with clinical depression, generalized anxiety/social anxiety for around 25 years (since I was 15 which is a very long time). Having a support system, psychiatrist, & therapist can help a bit& is what I thankfully have. It is still a struggle though but I take small steps when I can. Hang in there. I understand & your not alone. You can message me if you want
