Hey Thomas,

I'm sorry that things aren't going too well for you right now, I hope that you feel better soon, if you are feeling bad you should call someone, talking things thru might help even if u don't think it will, or even just talking about random things might help.

I am so tired of working so hard to get better, only to fell like I fall back to the same old way of thinking that brings me down.
Today I just feel like it's too hard....I had 3 good weeks, excluding all the side effects from the meds. No libido, ED, trembling hands all day long, confusion
just to name a few, and then back down the hill I fall.

Hello Thomas,

You're looking at it wrong - You had three good weeks! I can relate to your not wanting to be saved, living is hard. It just sucks sometimes.
I know you feel overwhelmed, depressed, anxious, restless, bored, etc. I do too. But I know people love and depend on me, so I just keep
trudging along and hoping that the next day, week, month will be better than the last one. Hang in there Thomas, if you just had 3 good weeks,
who knows, you may have another good run soon.


Best wishes,

Jean

sadsoul,
 
My goodness, Jean's comment hit me right between the eyes. You had three good weeks! I need to start looking at the world that way...............

When your fears have the best of you, it is easy to feel that things will not get any better.

This is not true. There is much help available in today’s society and the best way to deal with your fears is to find effective ways to overcome them.

Instead of focusing on doom, stay in the moment. Give yourself breathing space. Consider what matters to you. Establish a few manageable goals, then take small steps toward achieving them. Don’t try to stop everything as once as you may be setting yourself up for failure.
 
Don't fight the depression but work at learning how to get through it.
 
Stick with us, we all have depression.

That makes sense. I guess I fall into old patterns quite quickly. I have been dealing with depression most of my life, Have tried over the years to get help without many good results. I have a great doc and therapist right now and looking at the big picture I guess I have made some good strides.
I will try 1 day at a time, staying in the moment....

I suffer chronic pain plus was suffering depression even before.  MY depression was already out of hand before I suffered an accident leaving me with chronic pain. Every night I pray I will have a heart attack or just pass away but I could never be so lucky, hows that for depession.  I take every day by day.  I promised to ring people also but I never would.  However I think you should exhaust all avenues, they can help, the help lines I have used them before, so make sure you do also but also rememeber just take it day by day. Try antidrepessant, they might help you althouogh they didnt with me.  I see a phychiastrist also.

So you really owe it to yourself and others to try first.

I have been trying for years to get past all this depression and really trying hard because I ended up in the hospital for 3 days in July when I just lost it and could not even function. I guess I thought when I started on all these meds things would just be better right away. it's still a fight everyday, some days I win, some days the depression wins. I guess it takes time and the will to keep fighting...but as you all know, sometimes it just seems to hard to do.
my phychiastrist, therapist and wife made me promise to call one of them before I would try anything.

Thomas,

Yes it does take time to get better, it can be a daily struggle for a while, but it is worth it. It sounds like you are doing better now and I hope that you continue to succeed with this.

Keep posting, stay with us, we are here for you.

Thomas,
I know how u feel. Ihave been living with depression for over six years. I was also diagnosed with tendonitus and fibromyalgia which added to my depression. I have also been a cutter for years and have recently gotten help. I have tried to commit suicide and have learned that its not the way. There are medications that can help. I am on lexapro and wellbutrin and they are working wonders. I can finally get out of bed and not cry that i'm still alive. I havent gone to therapy and it didnt work. What did help was talking to my best friends. They just listens and help me when they can. I dont know what I would do without them. Try medications and talking it out or write poetry to express your emotions. Dont take your life it will destroy those who love you and death is permanent. Life will get better promise. We are all here for you because we go through it every day. Don't give up!

Thomas,

Have you seen the movie Batman Begins? The father of the young batman has a quote over there.

"Why do we fall? To get back up again."

I find that extremely comforting. Not only because it illustrates that our falling is only temporarily, but it makes you aware of the fact that there are good times as well. We aren't falling the entire time, though some of us are believing that. Sometimes a fall takes a little longer than normal, sometimes the ground is deeper, harder, colder, but we can always get back up and enjoy.

You say that some days you win, some days the depression. Aren't the days you win worth fighting the depression for again? Please keep up the fight, you will get better at it, you will learn your opponent and things will become easier.

Keep up Thomas, and all the very best!

I want to thank everyone for trying to help. I have done some soul searching over the last few days and I feel everyone is right. I need to keep fighting to get better. I started on Lithium about 4 weeks ago because of all those SI thoughts, and maybe I am starting to see a light at the end of the tunnel.
I just hate taking all the meds everyday
Wellbutrin 300mg day
Zoloft 150mg day
Lithium 600 mg day
my hands shake all the time, which I hate (from the lithium)
but I guess that is a small price to pay for still being alive

You are right Thomas, it is a small price to pay. I have to take a lot of meds too. So much that it is a chore to fill my pillbox once a week. But if I don't I forget. And it was hard to accept that I have to take them for the rest of my life, but that is the case. So I take it one day at a time and go from there. Life isn't all that bad. I am glad that you are feeling better.

Hugs, Karen
