    How to stop others actions affecting you

    I can relate. Youve chosen a hard path- I was a psychiatric nurse fir 20 years. But because you also suffer mental health issues it will help make you s far better nurse. Youll also find- there are a LOT of rude, ignorant people in the caring profession. If you can- try positive affirmations. Try and ignore the rude horrible staff. They’re usually unhappy themselves and bully others instead of looking inside. Goid luvk with your career. If you want any advice, or even just an ear, let me know. I know how hard it is training while suffering depression.

    Missing the depression?

    Yeah I’ve experienced this too. Depression can be comforting. And- as Lonelyforeigner says- it can be an excuse to not face reality.

    I can’t feel any emotion whatsoever

    Hi Kaylee. Welcome to the forums. Most folk assume depression means feeling sad or crying all the time. While there is some truth to this, the further down into the abyss you sink, ie the more depressed you become, you actually stop feeling anything and become numbed to most, of not all emotions without knowing what other symptoms you’re experiencing it could be you’re moderately or even severely depressed. Can you go to your dr? Hopefully they can help. .

    The difference between laziness and depression?

    Great post and I agree absolutely. On a a personal level- I’m lucky that I don’t always have depression. I get several years remission so I know it’s my depression when I’m struggling to manage. But it took me years to accept that and being lazy was a self judgement/ negative self talk. It’s all too easy to fall into the habit of saying I’m lazy-when it’s the depression that robs of motivation and energy.

    It’s my experience that often those that can do- those that can’t- get promoted. Yet they think they’re superior.

    I don't feel like I can talk to anyone.

    Write everything you feel down. That can help organise your thoughts- and if you’re struggling to speak you can get someone to read it. Good luck.

    Disconnection and isolation

    I understand only too well. Superficially it seems as if there’s nothing wrong but depression doesn’t work like that. You could be havi g the time if your life and feel depressed. Be in the company of good friends and feel lonely. When ot hits, it robs you of all happiness and feelings of worth and belonging.
