I Feel Numb... - November 11th 2009, 02:36 AM

I feel like nothing is worth it anymore... I want to die. But I don't want to die... it's confusing, but how can I distract myself from this feeling?

I've been depressed for years, but this suicidle thing is new. It's not like I'm attempting suicide, I just need to distract my attention from the feeling until my concling appointment on monday.

How can I distract myself?

Call friends. Listen to music. Sleep. Take a walk. Blast music. Those are just a few suggestions. And don't distract yourself to distract yourself. Distract yourself to have fun.

But in the end, the most important thing to accept is that no matter how alone you feel, how painful it may be, with the help of those around you, you'll get through this too.

Like Yale said, friends, music, sleeping, walking. A good book of some sort, or tv series you can watch. Art. Any computer or video games, online sites, sports.

I use deviantart.com a lot because I find the artwork and photography distracts me immensely. I also watch House lots because there are so many episodes I haven't seen, and they're brilliant distractions. Although sometimes it's just so hard to be distracted.

I'm sorry about how you feel :/ I think I feel the same way, and it's so difficult.
You're being amazing, though. Good luck with your appointment. ♥

You can message me if you would like, but I find that poetry helps get the feelings out and at the same time presents you with an end result that you can be proud of and it helps people hear you. It could also help your therapist understand where you are coming from if you show them the poems. It serves many purposes. All the previously mentioned thingslike music and exercise and even just watching idk things like videos of puppies. It seems to work
