  1. Hi @Alibi7691, and welcome. I'm glad you found DF. Sometimes it can be comforting to hear from others who may be going through a similar situation and know how you are feeling. I hope you find that here.
  2. I'm sure you are right that having such a different schedule than everyone else messes with me in some ways and is a factor in my depression. I've just always gravitated to the night shifts for some reason. Seems kind of fitting being different in that way too.

  5. I think that's a great plan and am happy you have such great support in this.
  6. This is completely normal for me. Any progress you make is still progress. Take the time you need and give yourself credit for the things you are able to accomplish instead of being hard on yourself with the things that are taking more time to get back to. Having setbacks along the way is normal too, just keep moving in the right direction. I know it's cliche, but one step at a time.
  7. Sometimes there is a bit of comfort just to be heard and to know there are others out there who share some of the same feelings you are having. I think you will find that here. Welcome
  8. I am fine at work, don't mind being around my "work friends". On my nights off I barely get out of bed, don't want to be around anyone, and generally live a solitude life. Sometimes I like it that way and other times it feels like a prison. Almost like a form of bi-polar I guess.
  9. I usually don't get home from work until after 3am and if I'm lucky get to sleep by 8-9. On my time off I can't help but to keep the same schedule. While I do like how peaceful it is, the quiet can be deafening at times.
  10. My mind is just racing tonight and there's nothing I can do about it. I used to have activities to help, whether it was a physical activity, reading, video games.. but those don't work anymore and I haven't found something new to quiet these thoughts. It seems like a contradictory but I am feeling lonely and at the same time don't want to be around anyone. I don't want to talk about my problems or my feelings, just have someone close to do ordinary things with. I have two day off and the more free time I have the deeper it gets, making me want to do even less.. giving me even more free time. What a stupid cycle I get myself into.
  11. I will never understand how people can so easily treat others like that, especially when it's someone you care about. You showed much more restraint than I would have. Of course this could be one reason I am not married. On a positive note, yay for Skyrim. You can borrow my headphones so you can play in peace next time.

  13. I'm sorry for everything you are going through right now. 😞 I am going through similar things right now so know how hard it is to try and cope. The feelings of weakness and being alone without that trusted someone to really talk to can be so overwhelming. I wish I had some suggestions or advice on how to try and make things better. All I can do is to tell you I hear you, and I understand what you are going through and am sincerely wishing you the best.

  15. I really think it's worth it too. 🙂 Thank you for your insightful post.
