I'm new to this group. Not sure where or how to post my situation/questions...Can someone fill me in?
Thanks so much.
Hello this is my first time on here and i would like to think this is a sign for me to try something different, i am really not sure what to say.
I feel like the (blackness) is coming back and i dont want it! I still take me meds, i talk to family and friends it does take my mind off of felling depressed butt it is now creeping up every minute.
I had been depressed for over 4 yrs now it was very good after getting help butt now i find it coming back (black) and i really dont want it I dont know what to do at this point of time I feel cofused and sadd, and i dont want to be.
How can you try and ........!
do what you gotta do in life, i push my self everyday now just to not go insane and i give myself good/positive gestures and thought's but (black) keeps coming back everytime. Ive excepted that i may have to take meds for the rest of my life and it still seems like life is sh*T-Sux.
I really need to know from someone else that has gone through what i have been. I have not yet found anyone.
Plese pray for me Margaret, my sister Rhonda, my son Brad & all of our family who have just lost my mother on Oct.6 completely unexpectedly & we are now just starting to feel the effect that she is really gone.
My son found his grandmother after running an errand for her. He is just now starting to share his grief & talk about her. We are absolutely stunned & heartbroken. Thank you in advance & thanks to my sister who brought me to this website. Love ya Rhon XOXOXO
please pray for myself and my friend missy

new here and trying to figure out how to navigate on the sight as well as in life. It feels good to know I'm not alone. Started the day with my 3 G's God, help me to stay Grateful and Grounded today and then I promptly started swimming around in my own head(scary place)so here I am, this is my attempt to get out of my head for a few minutes anyway.
Have you ever thought to yourself, this is not fair? This is not who I want to be? This is not how I want to be defined as? I have a very hard time accepting that I have depression/anxiety...but there is no denying that it is destroying my life.
HI there, I haven't been able to locate the Newbie Thread, but I wanted to introduce myself. When I read Therese's bio this morning, I was inspired. I myself have been through 6 different doctors this past year and several medications. In May, I decided to try TMS, which totally worked for me. It put my depression and anxiety into remission. Unfortunately, it did not last long, and I am now back in the thick of of a depressive/anxiety episode. I am doing the TMS again, but I have doubts that it is working. I feel so discouraged that I am never going to get better. I used to be able to control my anxiety and depression with pills, but now with the TMS added in, I feel like it is my only hope, which makes me feel so incredibly vulnerable. Right now I am taking ativan, seroquel (for anxiety), luvox (300mg) and ambien to sleep. The TMS wipes me out by 4pm, but I work full time and live alone. I get so incredibly lonely sometimes. This latest episode has been going on for a year, and sometimes I feel like I cannot go on. I ask God, why?? but receive no answer. I just want to feel normal. To enjoy life like I used to. I find that I am obsessing over all the bad things that have stemmed from the depression/anxiety (at some points I was too scared too be by myself in my own home, so had to have my parents come across the country to stay with me). I obsess about all the doctors and the friends I seem to have lost (the ones I have isolated myself from or the ones who just "cant deal" with my issues anymore). I just want to keep moving forward with a positive attitude. I am in a fragile state but know that I can help other people when I am feeling better. I just wish God would make me feel better.
Hello everyone! I am Randy from Ohio. I have dealt with depression all of my life. I do not remember my childhood.
My mother died two years ago, which left me with a huge, empty space in my life and heart.
I could ramble on but will leave with this for today.
I am looking forward to this discussion group.
God's blessings to all.
Randy from O-hi-O
Hello there, my name is Heather as well and I am very happy to be here. I find there is so much support, strength and sharing to be found in a community like this.
I have bipolar two, which is punctuated by severe depressions for me of late. Currently I am in the midst of a huge depression now. It is a comfort to be here, to know I am not alone. I also want to offer support and encouragement to you as well. This too shall pass....
