    What can I do to get myself out of this funk?

    I can't get my creative juices going.  My life has been reduced to the lowest of the low and I can't seem to wrap my mind around hitting rock bottom.  What can I do to get myself out of this funk?

    You have to believe that things will get better. It's not easy, but it's the only thing I find to do when I'm in a dark place in my life.
    As far as creative juices, write about what's going on in your life. It helps and it might help someone else feel less alone to realize others feel like they do. Good luck.

    Thank you for this answer.  You are so right.  It's not easy.  I have been trying very hard to stay positive and look ahead and keep my mind on other things but it has been difficult.  I've been trying to write and every time I begin my mind wonders off to somewhere else.  I just feel so horrible right now.

      If it makes you feel any better, you are not alone. I suffer from anxiety/panic disorder and lately have been having a truly horrific time with it. It's very hard to deal with feeling so hopeless and bad about things, but hang in there.

    Relax, relate, and release... Let go and let God...  Find a way to let go and get your mind off of the problem. I know it sounds a lot easier than what it really is but think of and do things that you enjoy. Even if you have to force your self at first it will get easier as you do it more. Before you know it you will feel better and be able to see that things are getting better.

      Thanks for your comment.  I have found that writing does sometimes help but lately I haven't been able to get anything to flow.  So, Im going to focus on writing and maybe it'll get better as I focus more and more on that.  Thanks again.
