Bored and Depressed - June 11th 2009, 08:37 PM

I am so bored and it is making me depressed. I am so bored that I cry. It's more intense during the weekdays. That's when my mom works and I have nothing to do because I don't drive. I don't know what to do. I hate myself and I thought I was getting happier. I am so sick of this. I cannot do anything.

Hi Chloe

I get the same feelings, I get bored easily, then I get depressed & agitated.
You shouldnt hate yourself just because of your mental health.You can do things, just this boredom is a set back.

Like I said I have the same feelings, so I know how hard it is to get motivated & enjoy things when your depressed. But, there comes a time when you do have to do something, before you get really ill. I mean even if its going to the local supermarket or local park for 15 minutes....its still something. Or you could write. Theres lots of things that you could do that dont need much effort to do. But the more you do these things, the better you will feel.

If you want to chat (Im bored to ) then my inbox is open.

Just remember nothing is your fault.

Boredom is dangerous. I know that sounds cheesy but it is true because boredom leads to dangerous thoughts. What you should consider doing is going out for a walk or something. Sometimes when I get bored I do just that, go for a walk or something. I also read or write. Don't let the boredom get to you.

Also, please don't hate yourself. Hating yourself is never a good thing and it will only lead to more depression and sad thoughts. Have you ever considered writing a list of the positive aspects about yourself? I know that sounds corny too but it can help. If you think you are a good listener or have good hair or whatever, just write it down and look at it whenever you feel the hate for yourself coming on. When you look at it remind yourself 'I have this good quality so I shouldn't hate myself.' Easier said than done I am sure but it can help. Please give it a try.

If you need someone to talk to feel free to pm or aim me.
