I am truly sorry for crashing in like this.
 
I did a goodle search for "depressed chat" and this board came up first.
 
I feel at my wits end and extraordinarily lonely.  It is 3.52am here in the UK and I just don't know which way to turn.  I just wondered whether any folk here could point me in the direction of a support type chat room?
 
Many thanks in advance.
 
Rai xx

Hello Rai and welcome to the depression forum!!

There is a scheduled depression chat each Friday at 9:00 eastern time. But you are welcome to use the chat rooms any time.

I'm sorry my computer doesn't support the chat room very well . . it freezes my screen too often. But if you have any particular questions or needs, just post them here and maybe one of us can help you.

Blessings!

Sorry to hear that you are struggling right now. Keep coming back. I look forward to getting to know you better.
We can respond to irritation with a smile instead of scowl, or by giving warm praise instead of icy indifference. By our being understanding instead of abrupt, others, in turn, may decide to hold on a little longer rather than to give way. Love, patience, and meekness can be just as contagious as rudeness and crudeness.

Hello.

** WOW... Yes, I battle DEPRESSION really bad, too. Mine was brought on by a series of events, incl. injuries that still cause me intense chronic pain, job problems, deaths of parents, financial struggles, marital battles, living in five houses in less than one year and the stress and difficultuy of moving each time, and a few more things. All this took place from 2001 - 2003 and I have been battling the depression ever since... and it justs get worse and worse... not any better at all!

Yes, I have been to counseling, tried two different anti-depressants, and more. But, I am worse today than in 2001. If not for my strong Christian faith, my family needing me, and a couple of other items, I would not see a reason to keep living... I think I would be gone by now.

I am also on lots of pain Rx. for the Chronic-pain (This Rx does not help the depression, I know!), have a high stress job, and still battle marital problems. I am at my wits end -- the last knot on the "rope ladder of life." Does any body have any suggestions or sources of help?

Lee,

Your post will get lost being mixed in with another topic. I'm going to copy and paste it in a new string so people can say hello!

Blessings!
