I Often Feel Depressed, Because I Feel Lonely...


     Back when I was first diagnosed as being DEPRESSED by a male psychiatrist I wasn't sure what he meant was I suffering from depression or not. Then years later, I learned depression is an illness. When I began taking ant-depressants I felt it was, because I was sick.  I know when I was physically sick I often had to take prescription medication, but this was completely different.  I felt lonely, because no one understood my illness not my husband not even my parents. And my in-laws no nothing about my depression so it feels as if I am depressed and lonely. but it is more about being depressed and being lonely with my depression. 

     There is no one who understands my depression.  I have actually been depressed for almost 30 years. I think it began when I was in my early twenties when I lost my job.  And then for 10 years I felt very depressed.  Nothing I did seem to take away how I felt.  I tried almost everything from taking hot bubble baths, listening to music, writing in my journal. and reading, but nothing seemed to help me.  I finally was able to get another job, but it never lasted either. So then I was back in the same hole again.  

      Whenever I feel depressed I feel as if I have fallen into a deep dark hole and feel I am unable to pull myself out of.  There are times when I feel I have almost climbed out, but then something always drags me back down into the dark hole again.  I feel so lonely too, because it is no difficult to describe to anyone how I feel.  I think for the past 7 years it seems like I have been STUCK in the dark deep hole and have just given up on trying to get out. It is almost like I have been hoping that someone will rescue me from my depression and feeling lonely, but no one is going to safe me, because I know now that I need to want to climb out of this dark deep hole someone can throw me a rope, but it is me that need to climb up the wall.

Your never alone, and you don't have to get out of the darkness alone. God is with you and wants you in His light. :)

You are not alone in this crazy world. I know it seems hopeless now and I sometimes feel the same way, but we all have to find our way out of the darkness together. You have strength inside of you and a lot more to live for, even if it doesn't seem like it now. Keep going, you are important, you are special, and the world is a better place with you in it. Even just reading your post I feel better knowing someone is going through a similar experience as me, and it gives me hope that we all can figure it out together. We aren't alone.

It can be hard to be stuck in a dark place for 30 years but things really can get better.
illness or not things can become brighter and i will tell you that your story is very admirable

I've also been battling depression for over 20 years. I totally relate to feeling alone. However, my depression has been worsened by a bad marriage and a wife that does not love me. Tonight I spend another Friday alone. My kids are involved in school sports and at the football game while my wife drinks with her school colleagues. I have no close friends nearby and feeling so isolated. If death came for me, I would embrace him gladly. I have no idea how to get better, even with meds I still feel terribly isolated and alone. If I could kill myself and make it look like an accident, save my children the shame and stigma, I would. Not sure if divorce would help my depression or make it worse. The sexless marriage has taken its toll on me and I'm ready to quit!

I understand... I am sight impaired and am socially isolated I am a good ear if you'd eve like to talk my # is (707)869-9600-MEL
