First of all welcome to the Healing Well depression forum.
You have come to the right place. We all have been struggling some with the time of year. Depression seems to like to set in at this time.
We can understand what you are going through, we have been there. But with the help of the forum, I imagine you will be feeling better in no time. There is a helpful group of people here who are willing to listen, so let us know what we can help you with.
I am so sorry to know hear about your sister, especially such a sudden death. May I offer my condolances to you. I lost two of my older sisters, one to cancer and the other to lupus. It isn't easy. So let it out, grieve. It is a slow process so just go with it. You will never forget her, she will always hold a special place in your heart, but I am sure that she would want you to get on with your life and to feel good.
There will always be somebody near by so let it out here.
Luv and hugs,
Welcome to Healing Well and the Depression Forum. You will meet many members here who know what your going through and where your coming from. I have depression and I lost my sister suddenly in November. I am sincerely sorry for your loss. Sometimes it helps to talk about the person you lost and if you would like to we would be honored to read your writings.
I do not know if you take medications or if you have been through therapy or go to a therapist. I would guess you have.Try to keep in mind that your depression is high right now as would be a person without a dx of depression. You have experienced a loss of a loved one. Your grieving and there is no timeline on how long you grieve. The pain will lessen in time but your sister's death is now one of your own private life experiences.BE good to you, don't be hard on yourself, instead come here to this forum and post to us. We are here and we offer a hand of support and caring.Gentle hugs to you.Kitt
