Stop Feeling Miserable Now!

Usually, when you are feeling miserable, you have good reason. Events in life, such as unexpected circumstances, loss, relationships turning out badly, finding that circumstances are worse than you expected and being separated from loved ones can cause anguish.

    Your advice assumes that I work, that I have social interactions, and that I get out of the house and probably into my car (or on the bus) to do stuff that probably costs money I don’t have. So it might work for people who haven’t been totally sidelined by mood disorders and anxiety disorders, or perhaps disorders I’m not that familiar with. But I’m not seeing much use for me, though I did just get back from a walk, and I have been in touch with some friends–most of whom have time to talk about once a month. Oh yeah-I’ve lived alone since 1997, when my ex decided he didn’t want to deal with my psychiatric issues. Funny, I’d prefer not to deal with them either.
    I need to stop because I feel a manic ball of rage coming on, which serves no one.

      God bless you! I know exactly where you are coming from. I am disabled with serious health problems and, no matter what the therapist says, it’s damn near impossible to feel ‘happy’ when I can hardly breathe. Plus I am ‘looking forward’to frightening surgery. I need more than some platitudes. On top of it all I’m bipolar. I try to count my blessings but I just don’t do a very good job at it and right now, I’m not full of much faith in God. I guess you might call this ‘situational depression’ but, it’s not a situation that I can just walk away from. I will keep you in my dubiously effective prayers and I hope you will keep me in yours! Meanwhile, I WILL practice these things simply because I can’t stand feeling so crappy and I’m ready to grasp at any straw I can reach.
