Ever wake up just feeling blue?

I spent the whole day going through the motions. I suspect I know why I'm feeling down and I know I need to shake it off. But sometimes I just wish I could go back to a certain point in my past and change one thing to make my present be something else. And I know that I can't. So I feel down for a while. I've realized that I need to waste a lot less time and begin doing something substantial with my life. Right now, there doesn't seem to be a point to my life. I hardly ever see anyone. I have no money to really go anywhere just yet. Things are stagnant. Then again, when I went through the huge upheavals in my life that I've gone through, I wished for things to get boring. So maybe this is getting what I wished for! So I need to make the best of it, right? -Claudia- image from pixabay

I have felt the same way but I think of it like this if I change my past I might have not had my children or met my husband and it really helps! There is always a reason things happen the way they do! Hugs I hope you get to feeling better feeling this way really stinks!

You make a good point. Of course, I always imagine that if I would change the past, it would be after I met my husband. I hope I can get a good night's sleep and wake up feeling better! Thanks!

You described my life and how I feel minus the big loss you had that I can't imagine. I hate that you have to feel like that too.

It might just be part of the whole grief thing. I'm not sure. I've suffered from depression for a very long time and while my medication works most of the time, there are just times when I sink a bit. It sometimes helps to talk about it and it's nice to get feedback from all of you. Makes me feel so blessed to have all of you in my life. Thank you so much!

@CRK109 I had to have my antidepressant increased a couple months ago.

Do not feel down, there are days that we see the life worse than it really is. Try to enjoy the little things that you like and make the best of it.

We can only live one day at a time. It's up to us as to how each day will be.

Yes, I've heard that before. I will try, when I wake up in the morning, to decide to have a good day. I hope it helps.

Make the best of what you have but also work on your dreams. WE all go through the same phase wishing we were something else. But eventually, life gives us what we deserve.

Well, if life gives us what we really deserve, I guess I've been bad because bad things have been happening to me lately. That gives me something to think about.

I identify strongly with what you express. I am just now feeling good enough to feel good. . . and to get out of my boring rut.

I'm so glad you're coming out of yours! I don't mind feeling a bit bored. I can work my way out of that if I want to. But there are sometimes when I feel like this cloud of doom is over my head. I hate that feeling!
