It just feels all really pointless

Community Member

I'm not really sure where to post this but for the past couple of weeks I've just felt like I've been in a sinking pit I can't get out of, I've had bouts where I haven't felt happy and would just like to hide in the house for a week any not talk to anyone, but this has been going on for weeks now and just keeps feels like I have this sinking feeling in my heart which I don't really have an explanation for. I have a good life, good career and family but everything just feels so pointless, like in the end nothing will really matter, it's all going to end the same way so what's the point in trying, I could never bring myself to ending it all as it would hurt people around me and I'd never want that, I'm not really sure what to do or where to start, so thought this was the right place to get my thoughts out of my head.

Hi Willis92,

Welcome to the forums and thank you for reaching out for support.

I'm sorry to hear how low you are feeling, sometimes it's difficult to get ourselves out of the spiral without help.

Have you made use of the help line at Beyond Blue or elsewhere? I would recommend talking with your GP about how you are feeling as it may be that you need some counselling to get to the bottom of what is causing you to feel this way. We can definitely support you on the forum, so please feel free to continue this conversation if you feel comfortable, but my suggestion would be to take the next step to get some assistance now rather than waiting. The sooner you get some help, the better your chances are of managing these feelings.

Take care, you are not alone, we will be here when you need us.


Thanks Indigo22, I've not really felt comfortable talking about it with anyone but have booked an appointment with the GP for next week.

Thank you for the update, I am really pleased you have taken the first step. I will be here for you if you want to talk about things further. I could also recommend some helpful books and authors if that is of interest to you.

Take care in the meantime,
