Ok ... I just had this very negative episode of overhwhelming loneliness and sadness. I'm trying to be calm though. Things piled up on to another and boom I went into a full sadness mode. Has anyone ever dealt with this before ?? I'm definitely going to talk to someone about it.

It is pretty much depression knocking at your door. I hope that it goes away Nadia. Keep your chin up and keep posting. We are here for you.

I will. I am feeling better. I just needed to get out of my own head for a second. I know the depression is still there but I will keep trying to become better no matter what.

hi nadia,

just another vote of support. i too am feeling sad today. i don't understand how i became so isolated.

i am trying to do as much reaching out as possible, and also to let people know i am hurting. that seems to help.

good luck to you!

Hi Nadia and display and Brooklyn,

we all become depressed and get overwhelmed with the sadness of it sometimes.

One trick is to find a "hobby" to distract and release the emotions causeing the sadness. Examples would be running, painting, journaling, scapbooking, sewing, walking the dog, pestering the cat, window shopping, people watching, etc...

Try something and see what works for you! Research a new hobby on the internet and see if you like it.

Be still and know there is peace.

Hi Nadia and Everyone,

Nadia, I know just how you feel. I'm overwhelm with feelings of sadness (stemming from my depression) as I type this message. For me having depression is like looking at situations and every things through dark glasses (if that makes sense). However, for me exercising helps me to feel a bit better (which I need to do today). BnotAfraid is right. Having a hobby is a great way to release your emotions. I hope you feel better soon.

Hi Nadia,
 
I understand how you are feeling. I can get overwhelmed with sadness and loneliness. What helps me the most is getting out of the house, even just to go to the store to pick up one item or just walk up and down the isles. Having hobbies also helps. It keeps you from thinking about your situation. I do have to admit though that there are times I just can seem to overcome the sadness. I love to read but when that feeling comes over me I can't concentrate on reading.
I am here anytime you need someone to talk to or help you to feel better.
 
Getting out for a walk also does a lot to help. Hope you aren't in the terrrible inferno that has been our summer weather!

Yes my day is slightly better today. I have only been talking to you guys still - I'll try to talk to others - but it is helping me get out of my own head like I said before. I used to bottle things up and I'm determined to not do that again and life a happy life. I'm looking into hobbies.

Good evening Nadia,

Sounds like you are really trying hard right now. Take it one day at a time. Maybe if you write in a journal about your feelings, it would be a way of sharing and opening up. Sometimes it is hard to talk to people. I can talk to people here easier than other people in person. I think it is because we are still anonymous. And we are writing. But this is a good start. Keep on trying... Take care and have a good night...

Hugs, Karen
