On and off happy

Lately I have been waking up feeling really tired, exhausted  and having no ounce of motivation in me. I have been sensitive and having break downs for the last 2 weeks and sometimes I think there is something wrong with me mentally because this is happening. Topics such as depression, anxiety and sucide seem to trigger me which I don’t know why such as I don’t want to talk about those topics. I don’t know whether it’s my friend for having thoughts like this and has Anxiety, depression and sucide thoughts. Or it’s because of my Father who is suffering from a mental illness. 


Re: On and off happy

Hi @Dleehy2002  I'm sorry you've been having a tough time. I'm glad you opened up about it here because it sounds like you need to talk about what is going on for you. Have you been able to do your usual daily activities while feeling this way? 

Do you think you could talk to a Counsellor to unpack it some more? Maybe you could ring Kids Helpline (1800 55 1800) and start from there... What do you think?

Re: On and off happy

Hey @Dleehy2002 , I'm so sorry you're going through this right now. It can be really difficult when we feel like we're on edge and not having energy can really zap our motivation. I can definitely relate to how you have been feeling, some days I wake up and find it difficult to do anything but lie in bed. How long have you been feeling like this, do you think? You mentioned your father and your friend are both experiencing mental ill health at the moment. I'm wondering how you're feeling about that?
