confused  Is anyone else feeling like their soul is sad?  It seems harder to try than to give in....

hi linda j. jamie here.
 
first, welcome 2 the forum.
 
it use to be. and sometimes it can be. but it is something that, for me requires constant management. sending healings your way. with compassion, jamie. ps, one day at a time. i try to be upbeat us much as possible, for happy adrenaline does wonders for the soul, heart and mind.

Hi Linda,

I am sorry that you are feeling so down. This is normal with depression. Keep your chin up. Maybe take a nice walk in nature. That does wonders for the soul. Try some meditation. That grounds us. And makes us feel safe.

Keep posting and know that we are here for you.

Hugs, Karen

So where do you all find the energy to keep getting up each morning - I have been told yes we have to get up when the suns shines and we have to put one foot in front of another - but for how long can you keep doing that in the hopes that it will some day be normal and I won't have to think about it? I feel like I have strugged with this forever - Somedays it just seems easier to give up than to fight... I am not trying to draw you all into my hopelessness - but I just need to tell someone how hopeless I feel - Is ther hope after depression???

Hope is knowing that one will get through - does one have hope n depression - no in my experience - but maybe others have found it - is it something to be shared.....is hope elusive or can it be grasped like the flowers of spring???I try to be so phyislogical and thoughtful -but my heart rules out all rational thought and I just want to .... what ... to stop being so tired.......................................

I totally know what you mean. It's just plain draining to be so "tired" all the time and feel like you won't ever catch up- but there is hope!! For me, it took some help from some trusted people- my mom, my husband, and my doctor. It may not work the same for everyone, but for me it really made a difference to talk about those feelings and the medication did help too. I felt like I had "enough" energy to do the things I knew made me feel happy inside, and gave me that extra little boost. Like Karen said, taking a walk in nature. opening up my windows to feel the fresh breeze and let some sunlight in.
I am so sorry that you are feeling sad, I know how that is. Hoping that you find some relief soon!

There is hope you guys, it is hard at times, but there are days I just have to let myself rest too. But I keep pushing, and take adderall. That gives me energy. Plus my abilify really helps. I know that you probably want to find other ways than medications, and it is within us, but sometimes we need a little boost to get us started.

Meditation helps me so much. And it is something I can do on my own. Walking also helps me. If I have the energy. Even if I just go a little ways, it helps.

I hope that this helps some.

Hugs, Karen

I am new here...
 
I am sorry but there is no advertising on this forum.  If you need help with depression we are more than happy to do so by supporting you.  But you can't sell your brother's book here.  Though I am happy that he won his battle with this beast of a disorder.

From birth I have Linda, you are surely not alone. The ways of alleviating the symptoms of it, because there is no changing that essence of what you feel because it is a very essential part of you. Would you rather be a shallow simpleton? Hehe I would definitely rather you not be and be exactly who you are. Concentrate on what brings true joy to your life, music, nature, art, The Bible, true true friends, true relaxation. It is not an easy life by any means, as full of solitude as the sky is full of stars, but even the stars are beautiful to gaze up at. There is hope, there are joys to be found amongst the dribble :) Have faith in God and faith that you will find those things that inspire you to happiness. I will pray for you Linda
