Hi there and Welcome to HealingWell!
I wont dwell too much on telling you how great we are here since Karen has got there before me! lol
I think you are jumping the gun a little by assuming this is depression but I think treating it as though it could be is a good idea. If you have depressive feelings and/or stress, its best to get help sooner rather than later. The longer you leave it, the harder it is to resolve, irrespective of whether it is depression or depressive feelings. I think seeing a therapist would be a good idea. I hope that you manage to get a place of your own very soon so that you can make a new start.
Hi there be.loved
Sounds like you are going thru a rough patch in your life..nothing worse than a broken heart..but you know what - it actually sounds to me like you are gonna get over all this in time..you have made a start by reaching out to us here at HW and you are reaching out to friends too.. It takes bravery to do this
When one door shuts in our lives, another opens - and in time you will be able to start afresh in your life, knowing that you can love and be loved by others...lucky you!
Take little steps...don't expect too much from yourself for a little while - try and seek out little things in life that make you smile and happy.
Best wishes to you. Keep us posted with you progress.
First of all thank you for the wonderful comments about HealingWell. I have found the support, validation and encouragement that I receive here, to be so helpful and healing. I hope and trust that will be your experience as a member of the HW family.
I am so sorry you are going through this break up and being in a foreign country where you have little emotional support has to be very difficult.
I am glad to hear you are moving back home in 2 months so we will all be here to support you and get you back home.
I also agree with Darren, you may not have depression but the break up in your life and the fear of the unknown is really pushing you down. Please do see a therapist if you feel that will help. Always follow your best instincts.
When facing a current or upcoming task that overwhelms you with a lot of anxiety, the first thing you can do is to divide the task into a series of smaller steps. Completing these smaller tasks one at a time will make the stress more manageable and increases your chances of success.
Sounds like you have taken some steps already as you have moved out but now to find a place for 2 months. I believe in you and that you will be able to work this out.
As you make plans to leave the country remember to make your steps small but keep on moving ahead.
I am happy you found this great forum, keep posting.
