I am sorry you are in a tough place yet and I do understand. I hate to tell you this but it took me a good year to pull out of my worse episode of depression and I am now off the AD for the first time in 25 years, it has been over 2 months and I am maintaining most of the time.
I do feel some depression but I know it is my own fears and I fight back.
I guess I do not post a lot of sweet posts as I usually try to look at the problem and then stay focused on the issues members are having.
I have found that dealing with your issues head on if you can is the best way to overcome your fears.
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 at once as you may be setting yourself up for failure.
Please know coming here is a wonderful and courageous step. You are voicing your fears so you know what they are. Now start setting goals and work on them one at a time.
You have my support and please know that we will help you through this tough road you are traveling.
Hugs to you
