Hi. I'm Jean, 39 yr old female who has been depressed probably my whole life. I'm honestly getting to my wits end. I'm not about to do anything drastic, don't worry. I just feel like I have no one to talk to, no one to listen to me. My husband and friends don't understand, just tell me to snap out of it, crap like that. I just feel so alone. That's why I looked to find some place with people who understand what I'm going through. I'm in Pennsylvania and this horrible winter is not helping matters any. Snowing and sleeting again today. I'm on Celexa and ativan.
 
Most days I just feel like I'm going through the motions and I envy happy people because all I want to do is be happy and live my life the way I've always dreamed. Anyone else feel this way or am I alone in that respect too.
 
I'm sorry, today is just a real bad day for me.

Don't be sorry!  I came here for the same reason.  To talk to others who understand what I'm feeling.  I have been battling depression since my teens, on and off, and when I hit my forties, it got worse.  Glad you are here and feel free to vent. yeah

Hi Jeannie,

You just answered a lot of my questions on the other post. I posted to you on another thread.

Welcome to HealingWell. Everybody here is so understanding. Kind and compassionate. I hope that you feel comfortable enough to continue posting.

It is hard when others don't understand us. Especially when we are depressed. But everybody here understands and we all stand behind you and are here for you.

Keep posting, as we are all here for you.

SillySundy,

It is good to see you posting too. Keep posting, as we are all here for you too.

Hugs, Karen

Thank you. Just bear with me ok? I'm a little gunshy about depression boards because I had a real bad experience on one last year. i'm not saying which one it was but it got to the point where I was afraid to post anything because one or 2 people started on me everytime I posted. I said I was having a bad day because my husband started on me, I got told at least you have people in your life. I was off work for 7 months last year with a broken leg and when I posted about me being so stressed out and depressed about that, I got "well at least you have a job to go back to what about the rest of us who can't work". You know stuff like that. So it's going to take me a while to really open up and trust again.

I think I know which board you are talking about!  It's rather "clickish" (sp) and you don't need to be there.  You can't really say how you feel and be honest because they will criticize you about it. eyes

That is too bad, we aren't like that here. Everybody is so kind and compassionate. We all know how you feel. I can see posting positive things to help you feel better, but not in a sarcastic way like they did.

I guess forums are different and the moderating is different. Here it is against the rules to flame other members. So don't worry about that here.

Hugs, to you both, Karen

Thanks megie! So you know what I'm talking about then? When I finally had enough and posted that I was leaving there I got the "please don't go we didn't mean it" crap.

From reading the posts here (so far) it does seem like I've landed in a much better place then the other one but still bear with me as I still may be a little shy releasing information for how bad I was treated/hurt at the other place.

Jeannie,

You will not find that here, but I understand why you would be gunshy. I hope that you can find this a comfortable place to just let go. We have many members who have been through different things. So everybody understands.

If you read the rules, you will see that we are not allowed to say bad things to anybody. I guess that is called flaming. So rest your mind knowing that it doens't go on. And if it does, it is taken care of immediately. But all of the members on the depression forum are so wonderful. I think in time you will come to realize that.

I hope that you have a wonderful day.

Hugs, Karen
