    Trying To Love...

    Falling in love...or being in love when you suffer from depression seems like a monumental task to the person suffering from it... It takes an incredible amount of trust. You have to look at yourself, wade through all the negative self talk that you hear in your head all the...

    Ever have a day where you want to just take the

    day off from life? Curl up into the fetal position and disappear, cry, yell, and get all other emotions out of you, in hopes that you may feel normal for a little while?

    Embarrassed much? Yes.

    It is embarrassing, isn't it? It is embarrassing to be ruled by feelings such as sadness, emptiness, fear, low self esteem.. 45 years old and I find myself starting over again. What once came too easily, now seems unreachable. I know. I KNOW that it is me stopping me. I know...

    How I Beat Depression

    First off, I want to say that I'm not a doctor, nor would I want to be. More and more, it just seems they are pawns of Big Pharma, handing out prescriptions like candy. This is NOT right! Our bodies, minds, and spirits are nourished by food, exercise, interaction with others, and...

    Telling someone with depression to "just be

    happy" or "just smile" is like tossing a kid with no arms into a lake and saying "just swim"

    I'm so depressed and lonely right now.

    Lost any joy I had with whatever games I own. And nothing nice to watch on TV. No friends or girlfriend to call. Nothing to do, just lying on my bed trying to decide whether to sleep or get up and do something. Why am I typing this? don't know, something to do I suppose.

    Hello EP! I am here to share my experience

    and gather advice. I am diagnosed and treated for Clinical Depression for nearly 15 years. It has taken away my will to pursue my career, my sex drive, and drained all my energy. Everyday I have to force myself to get up, shake the cobwebs from my depression sleep meds, and...

    I don't know what to do anymore.

    I've been battling depression for about seven years, and it's always a on/off kinda of thing. But I've had anxiety for as long as I remember and obviously, the two things are linked together. It starts as an anxiety attack and it kinda goes downhill from there. I would just...

    And I want to kill myself a lot.

    I hate myself so much. My childhood & blame just eats at me... And destroys everything, including my peace of mind. I just want to rest. You know really rest. I don't want to kill myself. I do but I don't. I just don't see myself ever loving me.. It's such a struggle to breathe...

    I am determined to beat this out.

    I have been fighting depression for almost 6 years now. I have had depression since I was 12 years old. I got to the point where I had given up on everything. I was pretty much the poster child for every symptom of depression you could think of. But, my parents kind of scoffed...

    Hope?

    Loneliness is one of the more constricting emotions I experience. It’s the emptiness of being invisible in a room full of people. It’s the desolate feeling of struggling without stirring compassion. I see people move forward with their lives and I see those who are involved...
