It sucks the life right out of you.
Tonybologna in an effort to cheer PrincessMaine up I must confess your profile picture makes me want to grab my hip boots and ask you on a date. Great photo man.
I've always had your back sweetie...hang in there!! :)
I do not suffer from depression. However, I do have several friends that fight it everyday. I know that depression is real, and it's not a choice. Most people aren't aware of it, but most people that have multiple open-heart bypasses will suffer from depression for a while. It is real, and my heart goes out to you and wish you the best in your fight.
I too struggle with depression. I am bipolar which makes life pretty difficult at times. I think if you really feel like you need help then get it! Depression is a life-long struggle but if you talk to a doctor you will be able to get meds to help even you out and great advice on how to manage your depression. I wish you the best of luck!
Go if you need to I have been twice probley saved my life don't let anyone else effect your desion i read your last Q and anyone in your shoes could use a helping hand. be strong
I am there occasionally. Thankfully, I'm in a good place right now--but you know, the higher you get the farther you have to fall.
life really sucks for me i cant seem to shake it i hate everyone telling be to be strong bt dont even care to hear wat u have to say
Been there a few times myself.But this is the way I always look at it.So your down,but not out.Life isn't full of peaches and cream and will always throw a curve ball sooner or later.But the flip side to that is as you climb back to the top,you will know what went wrong,so it will be easier for you to make the right decisions for the next round and get back to where you were before that much easier and quicker.You keep in touch with us to lets us know how your doing.I can assure you that we are all rooting for you.Good luck!!!!
Depression is an illness, and can be debilitating. My cousin had severe bouts of depression which pretty much paralyzed her for periods of time. She was diagnosed as bipolar, but her "manic" state was far easier to deal with than her "depressed" state. She's now on medication for it, and (after a period of trial and error trying to find the right balance with the medications) has been able to live a full life as a wife & mother while being gainfully employed for years. Don't feel ashamed about needing treatment for depression...it could turn out to be a really good thing.
I know where you're coming from. Being depressed over problems totally sucks. I have the same thing but not severe enough for hospitalization - yet. So far, medications are keeping me halfway sane. I wish you luck, darling.
Many times I have found you a inspiration in the meaning you bring to this site. It is unsettling to know that in your battle I have missed the unhappiness that life brings your way. I do hope that you know you will be missed but I will look towards the future with your better well being in mind. The smile I feel in your very keystrokes, how selfish am I for it to return with each and ever time I read your words? LSS
It's natural, everyone goes thru it, most ignore or act like its ok, whatever if u need to go n u go n it helps, GO. It will hopefully help and do not be ashamed. U r willing to work at it and I'm proud of you.
I suspect that it is the psychological opposite of love. Everyone is ugly, just a quantum of skin and excrement, when I am in a "black mood." I say dig deep, have faith in your better nature, and pry gems from the hands of skeletons. (Drugs do help, though, in that they make skeletons walk.)
I was diagnosed with clinical depression over 2 decades ago, & I do understand how overwhelming life can feel when you're trapped in the "black hole." I've manged to stay out of hospitals, tho my "shrinks" had tried to get me to go, but I was so concerned about how I'd ever pay for it that I just resisted! I've gotten by on meds, tho they don't seem to help much anymore, I wonder if I haven't built up a "resistance" to them over the years! If you have a strong support system of friends & family, you have a lot going for you, so don't give up on yourself, or on life, OK?
Depression is terrible, is like living in an abyss of shadow and fear... But will pass. I also don’t know how to deal with life yet... :(
You're health comes first, really hope you get the correct treatment and help. Suffering or trying to live with depression myself, the little things can so easily seem insurmountable and the big things impossible. Good days and bad days, but when it all seems like too much, yes additional help is needed. Take care, hope you come back to us stronger :)
I struggle with depression, and have as long as I can remember. I'd like to recommend a book called Man's Search for Meaning, by Viktor Frankl. It has really helped me stay out of the depression trap and move on with my life.
Hope all is good now .I;m just getting done with a 6 month program.Not going to write too much since your post is 2 years ols and don't know if you even go on here anymore
