I've lived with depression since I was 13-14. I'm 42 now. Been doing lots of different of things to help and some things work and some things don't. I am a little bit of an introvert with anxiety but have friends.
However I feel that I can never really properly talk to them.
One thing that I feel is that you can't really talk to many about how you really feel.
I come from a culture where "everything is fine". You just don't talk about how you feel. I'm so not like that but I still have to suppress how I'm feeling because you shouldn't really express how you are feeling. I find it absolutely great that mental health is on the agenda for many today but the problem is to find that one person or group etc who want to listen without fear or to much of a judgment. I am in search for a day to day wellbeing group which is super hard in Covid times. For me it's more about talking about how you feel from day to day, from week to week.
I guess you can call it to unload. I've tried psychologists but doesn't fit me.
I'm not sure if this makes sense.
Are there any groups like that out there that someone can recommend?
