I feel like my mental illnesses will never allow me to live.

I suffer from depression, anxiety, ocd and eating disorders. My social anxiety is so bad I find myself alone most of the time and unable to find new friends, my eating disorders make it difficult to be out of the house for long periods of time because I can’t eat outside (it’s a fear that I’m trying my best to beat but so far I’m failing) the ocd makes my brain work way too much and all that makes me depressed and frustrated. I just don’t know what to do anymore. I just wish I could have a life, feel loved, have a reason to live. I don’t know how to help myself… I have a therapist, psychiatrist and nutritionist, I’m really trying…

I am very sorry to hear how you feel. I strongly believe that everyone deserves to feel happy and loved. Therapy, and other people in general, should support you in getting there. Did you discuss how you feel with your therapists? Did they provide you with a plan on how to get better? Do you feel they understand what you need? If not, it is important to discuss this with them. Psychotherapists, psychiatrists and nutritionists offer you a service which should help you. Sometimes one has to look for a better fit, but it is always better to discuss what does and does not work first with your current therapists to see how they plan on helping you. You have every right to do so.

All the very best,
