When You're Depressed And Having A Rough Day....

Do you vent to someone? When I'm feeling depressed I don't feel like talking to anyone, and yet I feel like I need to talk to someone.... and yet I fear that if I do it will make them think badly about me, or that it will just make me seem ridiculous since I'm complaining about the life I chose and normally love, like I should just suck it up when I'm having a hard time. UGH! I just don't know what to do anymore.... it's like it's terrible to hold it all in.... and yet I don't feel like I have anyone I can talk to =( *sigh* See... stupid little pity party.... =/

  • everybody complains about there life. its good to get things off your chest. everyone gets depressed in a bood mood. you shouldnt feel uncomfortable talking to your mom, or friends or sister or husband if your having a bad day, feel depressed, or just need to complain. i do it all the time. if you need someone to talk too, add me

  • Writing it down can help. I don't tell people my business anymore, somehow it tends to bite me in the butt. If it builds up to much in me I just talk to myself and slowly relax it all away.

  • Sometimes I vent a little online and sometimes I just eat ice cream.

  • I feel the same way as you sometimes! Those times I feel like maybe I should tell my husband because I know he can sense it, but I think I'm to afraid that I'll admit to myself that I don't always feel like I can do it, or I feel like I'm not good enough. I think I'm afraid that admitting it to someone makes those feeling true. But then the times I admit to my husband how I'm feeling he makes me feel better just by being there and loving me.

  • I complain about all of the small stuff and hold the stuff I actually care about it. I've been practicing talking it out with my SO and it helps a lot.

  • ooh ooh I'll join your pity party! I feel this way too - about wanting to vent but worrying what folks will think of me. I am so glad I have an awesome best friend that I can call up and vent to. I can say "This isn't at all what I really think, but..." and just go off, and I know she'll know exactly how to take it.

    So... I just wanted to let you know you're not crazy! Is there a CafeMom friend or group you can vent to? I have found tons of support (for everything) here!
