  1. Questions!

    Dancing in the Dark by Bruce Springsteen. What is your favourite word?
  2. What Really Bugs You (7)

    When a song is used in a TV ad but they change the lyrics to fit the product being sold. It makes me cringe
  3. The "How Do You Feel Right Now?" (4)

    Thank you, that's very kind of you. You're definitely right about some people not knowing how to appreciate. I guess it's just a case of finding the ones who do know how. (((Hugs)))
  4. How Is Your Weather Today? (16)

    It's England. It's December. It's cold.
  5. The "How Do You Feel Right Now?" (4)

    Unappreciated. Sometimes I wonder why I bother helping people. Or am I just feeling sorry for myself?
  6. Is This Weird Experience a Symptom of Depression?

    Hi FriendlyHermit, I've experienced this a lot myself. That feeling of being physically weighed down usually happens as soon as I wake up and takes a long time to go away. That's if it goes at all. My entire body feels so heavy and it almost feels like I'm paralysed. In the midst of even the most desperate, suicidal depression, I've felt sudden, inexplicable bouts of confidence. Something that could almost be described as euphoria, where I feel I can do anything. But it doesn't last very long and when it disappears, it seems like a dream. In answer to your question, yes, it's a symptom of depression. I've known numerous people who have had it. I found a few peer reviewed papers online about the physical symptoms of depression , including the ones below. 1. Medically Unexplained Physical Symptoms, Anxiety, and Depression: A Meta-Analytic Review Henningsen, Peter MD; Zimmermann, Thomas DiplPsych; Sattel, Heribert DiplPsych 2. Physical symptoms of depression. R J Mathew, M L Weinman, M Mirabi I hope this helps
  7. What Are You Listening To Right Now?

    The rain falling on to the bedroom window. One of my favourite sounds.
  8. The "How Do You Feel Right Now?" (4)

    I split up with my girlfriend today, so I'm feeling pretty low. I've been through worse break-ups and I'll know I'll get through it but I'm still feeling pretty bad.
  9. How Do You Feel Today? #32

    I feel exactly the same.
  10. What's On Your Mind Right Now?

    My stomach hurts from not having eaten anything for the last two days but I haven't got the motivation to get out of bed.

    Thank you :)
  12. The "How Do You Feel Right Now?" (4)

    Had a bad day today - didn't manage to get out of bed. I'm not looking forward to waking up tomorrow morning.
  13. The Up All Night Thread Ha Ha

    I took my prescription to the pharmacy today and then completely forgot about it. So I don't think I'll be getting much sleep tonight.
