I need to let it all out but can't


R A I N ย  ย 

Recommended Posts

I realised that sometimes, to make me feel better I really just need to let it all out and cry. But, I can't do that because my nose turns bright red and its so obvious to others that i've been crying and i want to know how to hide my bright red nose.

Heyy @R A I N, I have just responded to your previous message on community as well. I wanted to say it's okay to cry and let it all out, crying is a good way to express your feelings and is part of processing certain emotions. Instead of hiding your nose, is there a space at school or home where you can have some privacy to cry?

No, I have no privacy to cry except the bathroom and my nose gets really red so even when I've already cried, my nose will still be red for a while.ย

Hi @R A I N

To answer your question I feel like wearing a mask could possibly help you hide your nose along with, using an ice cube or something cold to keep down possible swelling.

I would wear a mask but they'd ask what I'm trying to hide if I just wear it all of a sudden. I'll try using an ice cube, thanks.

I am so sorry @R A I N, this sounds challenging to deal with regularly. How are you doing now?

I'm feeling quite alright today, could be doing better but yeah, I'm not as bad as I usually am. Haven't let it all out since my breakdown, but even in my breakdown I was trying to calm myself down and cover my mouth with my hand, so it all got a bit chaotic actually, and I didn't exactly let it all out.

I'm sorry to hear that you've been feeling down and lonely. It's good that you have friends, but it's also important to recognize when you're feeling distant from them and to take steps to address those feelings. One way to do this is to try reaching out to your friends and making plans to spend time together, even if it's just through a video call or text message conversation. Does this sound like something you'd like to try?ย 

In addition to using music as a coping mechanism, it might be helpful to try other activities that can improve your mood and well-being, such as exercise, meditation, or engaging in a hobby that you enjoy. If you're concerned about the impact of loud music on your hearing, you could try using noise-cancelling headphones or earplugs, or listening to music at a lower volume, I do find this to be helpful for myself. Would that be possible for you?

Yeah thatโ€™s all really valid tbh

interrogators are not pleasant (they often encourage aloofness) cuz they do make it all about themselves for themselves and- well Iโ€™m sorry you had to deal with thatย

I'm sorry to hear that you're feeling that way. It can be really tough to feel like you're losing motivation and not making progress. You're not alone in feeling this way, even though at times it may feel like that. Is there any support we can provide from our end to help?

not rlly gosh my life feels so depressing more than ever like literally just dk how to cope w everything - esp as my headphones hv been taken away like i loved them sm. I'm not even close w any1 so it's not like i can hang around n talk abt it either so i dont get what i'm supposed to do w myself every single day for the rest of my life. Like everythings been confiscated, i'm not rlly allowed out the house so all i can do is chores n hw which is just great. Ik i sound like i'm going on a rant but rlly i just feel there's no purpose in me being here anymore n i just feel so lost n alone n i just want it all to end. It just brings me to tears thinking abt it n typing this up but wait i cant even cry either so i hv to wipe them quickly b4 sum1 sees.
