Am I depressed or is it just lack of self control?

February 10, 2010 8:56am CST
It's just gone noon and i've alredy eaten 600g of chocolate along witha fry up, i'm thin, weight isn't an issue, I know it's not good for me but I can't stop and I just feel guilty all the time. I can't sleep, I have vivid nightmares. Initially I stopped myself sleeping to prevent encoutering the dreams, but now I just can't sleep and stay awake for hours. The only time I can sleep is if there is someone els ein the room. Onlookers would say I have a perfect life, i'm good at sports and study a hard degree, I have people around me all the time but it just makes it even worse, I feel so lonely. Is it just lack of self control? Does anyone else have this problem or am I alone??

Hi Amieandrews! Welcome to MyLot! I don't know what exactly it is but I can tell just this: Just have some goals for you, some ambition, no matter what it is and in what field but it helps you concentrate on certain things. And also keep yourself buy with some or the other activity if you are not sleeping. Try to have nice chat with friends, family etc. Keep yourself thinking about all the good things. Try to read inspirational books. I recommend autobiographies of some great people. If you still find that nothing is helping and you feel the same way then consult some very good consultant. Happy Mylotting!
