Situational Depression

I don't know if anyone can relate, but I suffer with what I call "Situational Depression" (my own term, I guess).  What I mean is that I am not usually depressed for no reason and/or due to some chemical imbalance or anything.  I am normally depressed due to situations and circumstances that I can articulate.  The loneliness (lack of friends) contributes to my feelings of depression.  And yes---it is almost everyday.

Can anyone out there relate to what I am saying?

I have that and no one seems to understand. When a situation is really bad and can not be fixed it is normal to become over whelmed anad depressed. When there is no one to help and it seems like no one understands. I am right there with you!

I can relate but mine is more related to work. The less work the sadder I am ..but I do understand what your saying about the term situational

Just pray and know that your higher power is in control. I am going through a situation right now myself that has me really sad and depressed and i feel i don't have anyone to turn too. But i have continued to ask god to take me in the direction he thinks i should go and i believe he will. Just stay strong and positive, i will keep you in my prayers!

I know exactly how you feel. When you feel like you're trapped and depressed but if you were taken out of that 'situation' you would be 100% 'normal' again. I'm stuck at home nursing my very ill alcoholic mother, and everyone in the family has left me. My reasoning is that I can't just leave her like this, but if i don't care for her then no-one will. She's literally driving me nuts, and I've recently gone on to anti-depressants to combat these horrid feelings.<br />
My thoughts are with you.<br />
God bless.

Another thing, as friends in the military tell me, if you can't do anything about a situation, fu-ck it, and let it go.

Count your blessings and be like a rock. Old sound says, "I am a rock, I am an Island. There are probably a few million guys that relate to what you say. Many times I feel the same way. The one's that really feel this way are business managers, directors, CEO. Their responsibility does not allow them to share their feelings with just anyone. It is written in training books, classes, that this people keep their feelings to themselves and work issues as a professional. I am not any of the professionals, but so long as I have a job duty, home responsibilities, family cares, I have to be the rock. Of cource I take to many activities the keep me busy, like organizations, church, casino and bars, and that is how I handle depression.
