I’m not sure if this is the place to go for this but I'm a college student that struggles with anxiety and depression. The past month or two have been draining. I don’t have any friends, I go to class and I go to work. That’s all I do. I've hit a point where I feel like my life is a constant mental breakdown. What do you recommend for getting myself out of this feeling of constant breakdown? I’ve tried doing things I enjoy but I don’t find enjoyment in anything anymore.

Answer

I am nothing near a mental health professional but I have experienced something like this and is still going through it today. There are so many things I still don't know about how we can heal or get better instantly and I know there's really no quick-fix for what you're we're going through, but what I do know is that it's a great sign that you are trying to look for ways to get better. The best thing I can suggest for you to do is to find someone to talk to. If you don't have friends, you can talk to a family member or a workmate that you know cares about you. And if you are able, please consider reaching out to a professional who would help you handle it better and find the root cause. I wish I was able to. I bet it would have helped me and I wouldn't need to face it all alone. So please, if you are able, ask for help. You can also try to break away a bit from your daily routine. If you have time, you can stroll and visit the nearest park, somewhere quiet and peaceful. Just breathe and try to empty your mind. Watch a movie or read a book. Try to focus your attention on something else. I know it's not as easy as reading a book or walking to a park or exercising but maybe inserting new fresh things in your day-to-day might help you ease the weight a bit. There's a trick I learned somewhere on the internet: when you are heavily anxious, focus on your senses. 3 things you can see, hear, feel, touch and smell. They say it can help you calm down a bit. What I personally do was writing, I don't know how many poems or stories I've written when I was depressed because of my anxiety. It didn't heal it altogether, but it helped me channel those emotions and energy somewhere else. I hope the best for you and I pray that you'll get better soon. Hang in there. It gets better I promise. Just like my favorite saying "This too shall pass."
