Dear friend, please don't do this to yourself. Get to a doctor and let him find the right balance of meds to even out the swings. You don't have to hurt. Please, do it.

How wonderful life Is , but you can't see it ....and no matter what u do u r depressed. I know I know I know ... But I also know this ... We NEED MEDs.

hello thankyou for posting I am truly grateful

There is no shame. I battle depression and ptsd every day. Have I cried in public for no apparent reason? Yes. Was I embarrassed? Yes. But I refuse to give in to this disease. I will fight. I wish you peace and happiness in this journey of life. Crying is not a sign of weakness, it's a sign that one has been strong for too long. Chin up Steve!

thank you for posting. I appreciate your time and caring

i fully agree with you / i watch a touching moment in a movie in sports or reality shows that reminds me of the past tears comes to my eyes and then i feel better tired of holding back tears i am a man and i can cry
