People I trust and try to help keep on finding excuses to have a go at me. Can't take it anymore. Deactivated my Facebook account.

It makes me proud to see people openly discussing mental health here. So many others have stigmatized it, and made the illusion you're "weak" if you can't muscle through it or complain about feeling anything other than what they want you to be/feel. I am on 100mg of Setraline for PPD and PMDD, off and on over the last few years and trying other meds in between. It seems since having children, my mental health has deteriorated a bit. I don't blame them (children), because my mother dealt the same, we're just susceptible to mental health issues and imbalances.  I miss the old me where I was happier and had bounds of energy. But I'm getting used to the new normal of it all, especially after having COVID during my last pregnancy. Changes you physically and mentally, life.  Medication and therapy has helped a bit over time. There is absolutely no shame in seeking help or seeking someone close to talk with. I didn't have that growing up like many haven't either. It was a tough ass dad saying deal with it or a mother that suffered and rolled her eyes when you yourself had any problems, so they'd turn it into a competition.  Sending you all positive vibes.  Things get real dark sometimes. Just take it one day at a time.

My cousin was already depressed before the pandemic began. It worsened when the pandemic hit the business she works for very hard. I never experienced depression, but current events are making me feel a lot of anxiety that I never felt before. Problems bring in more problems. It's good that we can express and share our problems here. Keeping it to ourselves makes it harder.

The psychological effects of the pandemic are often overlooked, anxiety and depression have spread even more during these last years, and heavier for those that experienced it before.

Indeed, sadly I still use it to keep in touch with those I want to meet, organise nights out etc but I gotta be honest, I'm rapidly reaching that point of just shit canning the whole thing regardless. Really has f**ked with my mental wellbeing still using it.

Speaking of mental wellbeing, I will be seeing a therapist soon. It has been on the cards before the pandemic but now it's worse than ever and I feel like on days that I see no point in carrying on with anything if life is going to be constantly cruel to me on any or every level. I'm too exhausted to cry sometimes. f**k everything!
