I hate having bipolar. I think the season and lack of sunlight got to me and I’ve been depressed for 3 weeks now. Hardly can get out of bed. Showering is tough. I’m tired all the time 😣

I recently saw a doctor and she prescribed me Vitamin D so I can combat the deficiency I have. If you’re fatigued and having trouble with getting out of bed, I would advise to see a doctor as it may be a true Vitamin D deficiency.

This has been me for 3 weeks also. I’m also confident some of the lack of light is contributing. I’ve been taking vitamin d. If helps some but not completely. How are you handling it regarding work?

I’ve gone to a therapist 3 times now, and I am unsure if this is the right therapist for me. I’m not sure how therapy is supposed to work as this is my first time, but it feels like she never really has much of an agenda to work through with me and I kind of run the appointment. I don’t mind doing a lot of talking but it almost feels like I’m just paying a lot of money to vent to someone, as she really just listens rather than giving me helpful advice or doing exercises with me. Is this normal?

I have severe anxiety and get crazy panic attacks when I think about my parents getting older and eventually passing away

My parents have sacrificed so much to ensure that I had a great childhood. At some point we had no money for food but I only found out recently because my mom did everything possible to make sure that my siblings and I didn't find out. They did everything possible to make sure we were always fed.

Now that I'm an adult I feel like it's my responsibility to ensure that (TBC)

My job is draining my soul and my willingness to live. I don’t know what to do anymore, I can’t afford to quit with no plan as I live in a very expensive Country where the Job market is extremely competitive. I came back from 12 weeks sick leave due to burnout and almost wanting to kill myself. Two weeks in, and I am going down the same rabbit hole and started getting depressed again.

I need some positive success stories of any of you who Managed to get out from a similar situation.

I was diagnosed with major depression around 4 years ago. Told I’d have to be on antidepressants for 3-5 years. Sometimes I have severe depressive episodes. Recently it’s been impacting my work performance. I’ve also started taking more sick days as a coping mechanism since being at work seems to make it worse, especially granted I’m working with a d*ck of a manager. Always been a high performer (before this period, which really sucks). Really want to quit but don’t have a new job yet.Advice pls
