Hi im new to this site
I have suffered with depression and anxiety on and off for the last 20 years have just been diagnosed with it again and been put bac on ad's
I have had a couple of bad years kids leaving home, moved bac in with my parents and got involved with a man who ended it last christmas then decided to get bac in touch with me a couple of months ago and totally used me till he met someone else again which i know just topped thing off hence the depression coming on again. He now wants us to carry on as if we r just friends and nothing happened which i find hard to do as i have strong feelings for this guy and have found myself comparing every other guy to him for the last year.
At the moment i feel very lonley and scared im going to be on my own forever my friends and family tell me i won't but it's hard to see that at the mo they tell me to go out more but at the mo i just can't get up the motivation to its hard enough to make myself go to work. I just sit here hoping he will get in touch and hoping he don't as it hurts to know hes with someone else if that makes sense.
Iwas married for 16 years and wen that ended as he left for another woman i never felt like this .
I just want to be the happy bubbly me again would appreciate anybodies advice on here

hi B.B. and welcome to the forum. i am sorry for your situation, although i want to say that you have done well in reaching out on this forum. life is a roller-coaster at times, we go up, down, go through some scary corkscrews, and at the end of the ride we are still riding it!! our hearts are pounding, the adrenaline still pumps, but after awhile we are back at the start. my suggestion is to follow your gut instincts, and mostly to be true to you. maybe seeking some counselling will help, it is good to bounce things of a therapist as they are truely seperate and can give sound feedback in regards to what is happening for you. other members will post with ideas, but in the meantime, we care and keep safe. jamie.

Hi Jamie
thanx for ure reply and ure right about life being a roller coaster never runs smooth.
wat u say about being true to myself sounds like good advice something i should start doing. i am the sort of person that tends to worry about everyone elses feelings and not my own as long as everyone else is happy.
I have read through a few of the posts on this site and found them usefull just to know im not the only one going through depression and wat im feeling is normal helps.
Take care BB

Hi Bunnybear,

Welcome to the forum!

It's hard to have depression and then have it compounded by events which are upsetting. I'm sorry this man used you so. You don't need to be friends with him. I'm sure he'd like that, but if it's upsetting you further, then try to make a clean break, for your own peace of mind.

You will get your life back, it just may take a little time. It sounds like you've had bad luck with your relationships, but that doesn't mean they will be like that forever. I echo Jamiee's advice that you look into counseling. It can help you learn to work through the depression and make good decisions about relationships.

Be well,
serafena

Hello BB,
 
I just had a read of ur post's and i hear where ur coming from!! I to thought that i was the only lonley person on this earth,but coming to this forum has helped me so much as you said in ur post you have read other's post's and yes there are lot's of lonley people in the worl but we just dont hear about it until we come here. Im sorry ur going through so much pain. I would agree with Jamiee in regard's to some councelling and maybe try some other med's??? We are all here for each other so please dont feel alone anymore. Also my suggestion with this guy in ur life is to tell him to walk away as it seems like he's just dragging you down which you dont need. Look after "YOU" nobody else. hope u have a good day/night!!!!
