the crying cyclist

Postby nath » Sun Aug 23, 2020 6:05 pm

Hello all,

I have just signed up. I Don't know the rules or the etiquette but I am struggling with depression and anxiety. Crying floods of tears for no reason is the latest development. For example go for a bike ride and the crying starts hence the subject title.

Hi, Nath.

Do you feel better at all after you stop crying or is it always heavy on your spirit beginning to end?

What can make a person cry ALOT is a 'over bearing' of hurt/pain that is over and above all other everything. That is the area that needs addressing/clarity/closure.

It's really good to see that your on the efforts of going forward in life, going outside, exercise and fresh air. Love everything that puts a smile on your face/spirit small or big. That's a place you conduce your channels of happiness from yourself.

It might not sound so easy but, BE your OWN STAR PLAYER. I'm saying that to myself as well. That is what has me typing this message. :D Bringing good around, picks me up. Grammer is terrible, sigh.

Thanks for the post.

After I have cried I generally feel better. Although it might take two or three crying episodes to reach that. Also it is very tiring crying so much.

Hi crying cyclist, I find your post very relateable at the moment. I feel like I too have cried buckets recently. I have had to cancel several social outings this weekend as Ive been so teary.

Hi lol76,

Thanks for the message. Depression and anxiety is a torrid mixture - it just floors me.

Snap! I feel like I swing from either really depressed and hopeless to anxious snd scared of everything. Its so hard to live with isnt it? Its massively affected my working life, I lost my job because.of it last year and Im really struggling to even think about going back into a new work place. I feel so alone as most people I know with it keep on working or are only off a few months then return to work. Im literally terrified for my future. I can.meditate, exercise and connect with friends but none of those will be sble to pay my bills. Its like banging my head on a rock...im just hurting myself but cant seem to get rid of the rock.

Cried again this morning. That is four days on the trot and yes I am keeping a log! Tension in the stomach, no appetite, sleep not great and scared stiff of life and the what ifs.

There is no let up. Every day is so difficult - with the mornings being particularly bad.

Nath, have u considered going to see a psychiatrist or keeping a diary, perhaps both. I'm on a waiting list. Never been before. Waiting list is like 3 months is what they are saying.
