I've been dealing with depression on and off for the past 6 years. I've had my extremely low moments when I feel worthless, lonely and unloved. I still haven't managed to learn how to love myself and accept myself for who I am. I'm going to seek a therapist or counselor to help me fight with the person inside me who seems to always bring me down.
Hi all, I'm new here too. I found out I had depression shortly after having my daughter 11 years ago. I thought I was just a big cry baby (smile). My mom, sisters and I all suffer from different forms of depression. I've taken meds, felt ok, but a little numb..need to find better balance with meds. I had a BIG crisis on Sunday. My husband and I are doing ok, not good or great, just ok. I just felt so lonely and unloved. While my head was saying, "nobody cares, your worthless, this world will be better without you, you'll only be missed for a while", I kept praying and while still hurting was able to get past that crisis. I'm still feeling sad, but I have a call in to my therapist and will keep moving forward.
Hi, I'm new here too. I've got clinical depression/anxiety and no meds seem to be working (I've run the gauntlet). Right now, I'm trying to get by with yoga, walks, nutrition, meds (they do help some) and the hope that this too shall pass. The roughest thing is isolation - and the responses that Teresa wrote about today (get happy!). I just need a place to be honest and also to find solutions. Sometimes the solution is just telling the truth.
I'm a student and I've got two more weeks of school and I'm not sure how I'm going to get through. But I know the fear is always, always, always worse that the reality.
Hi. I'm new here. I've been wrestling depression my whole life. I'm a 49 year old female. I have chronic pain from rheumatoid arthritis and fibromyalgia. I have other health issues as well. My new doctor does not prescribe narcotics for chronic pain so now I'm in pain everyday. I need support and am willing to give support to anyone going through this. It's hard to cope and today is one of my down days.
Depression and I have been at war since I was 12. A forever and non-ending battle since my diagnoses. I have been placed on more medications than the clothes I have had since birth.(exaggeration) Medications and I don't work well each other either, so needless to say I am unmedicated. I definitely hope to learn more within this group.
Hi, I am new and sometimes I need to express what I am having trouble with in the depression area. I have had alot of counceling over the years and so thankful, but just need encouragement sometimes and don't want to burden family or friends all the time. Thanks
Hello - I was just searching for some support and found this group. I suffer from depression and anxiety; have had a few of those terrible anxiety attacks where you feel like your really loosing it too. I constantly battle this..trying new meds for my head and hormones for my body. It seems I'm good for awhile and then all falls apart again. My doctor says I have bipolar II.
I am interested in meeting and talking on boards with people struggling with the same issues. Maybe together we can help one another.
Thank You! Karasue
This is an entry out of my journal. I just wanted to share it with all of you. Living with Bipolar Disorder doesn't have to be impossible. I have to remind myself of that sometimes. Yeah, it sucks, but what can you do about it really? If you are dealt that hand, you just have to keep playing, right? Some days are definitely a lot harder than others. Yesterday was a great day. I felt good, I could actually think clearly, I got a lot of stuff done. But the two days before that were miserable. I didn't feel like doing anything. I was basically just laying around feeling sorry for myself. And trust me, that's no way to live. I just gotta remember to keep taking my medicine and and keep praying. I know everything will be alright. I have a family that loves and supports me. I want to pray for all the people out there that are living with Bipolar and don't even know what's wrong with them. I know how hard it is, that was me five months ago. I pray that they get the help they need. I want to pray too, for those that know they have it and are miserable because of it. It doesn't have to be the end of the world. All you have to do is follow your doctor's advice and TRUST GOD. God wants to take care of us, all we need to do is just let him. In Jesus' name, I pray. Amen.
