No motivation

I saw my therapist yesterday. Our insurance changes November 1st so I hope to see her at least once more before the end of the month. I don’t have much motivation. My therapist thinks that I’m losing weight. I feel guilty that part of me wants to lose weight. I feel a little hopeless. I’m off my medication and the therapist appointments will be too expensive too. I feel very alone. Depression is horrible. I’m tired of living like this.


I'm really sorry that you're having to deal with this. I'm sure it's frustrating. I can understand the desire to be losing weight, still. It's a catch-22. Depression does stink. I'm sorry you have to go through this, especially since you are going to be losing your insurance and thus your support team. Hang in there. Hopefully something will work out.


Hi Blue44-

I'm glad you got to see your therapist and will hopefully get to again before the month ends. I'm so sorry to hear you have been struggling with depression recently- that's so tough. I know things have been difficult, I just want to let you know we're here for you & you're not alone <3

Thanks for the support

I appreciate the responses. It really does help to have this forum in which to vent and get support.
This afternoon has been horrible with my thoughts. I hate myself and my life. I have so much anxiety and depression.

Thanks moderators for the support numbers and also thanks to all the posters for the encouragement and support. I really appreciate it. I’m feeling a little better today. I’m going to try my best to work through this transition of coming off my medicine and think positively and not give into destructive thoughts.
