Irene, I am a recovering depressionist/panicist/anxietist.  Been through lots of therapy and drug treatments and seem to finally have a better grip on things. My problems really started when I was about 14.  My mom finally went to the doctors after about a year and was diagnosed with ovarian cancer.  She started chemotherapy.  I was the youngest with sisters 11 and 13 years older and a brother 3 years older.  My mom got very weak and was not at all what she used to be.  I had to help her with many things to inculde giving her injections.  My dad worked over 14 hours a day to help ends meet so it was really my mom and me.  She finally had to be admitted to the hospital.  I remember the time we were going to she her at the hospital but got stuck in a major traffic backup (4 plus hours).  I started to have impatient fits and we eventually turned back home, planning on visiting another day.  A few days later, walking out to my car after school, I found a penny (heads up) in the snow and thought "Well this is supposed to mean I am to have some good luck!"  As I neard my house I saw my eldest sister's and Dad's cars parked out front.  It was strange since they were both supposed to be at work and my sister hadn't been on good terms with mom for a few years.  I walked inside and new instantly that something was wrong.  My mom had died from heart failure.  I never got to say good-bye and I Love You to her one last time.  I didn't cry.  I couldn't cry.  I know now I had gone into shock and denial.  I believed it was my fault she died because I didn't go and visit her on that day.  I felt the way for several years.  It was then I began to build the bricks to my security wall around me.  Anytime something bad happened I built another brick.  At 18 I joined the Army to get away from home.  But this is another story that I may post later.  You are not alone!  We are here to help if we can and sometimes just talking can help take some of the weight off.  Please talk to us!

"I'm suffering, i've been suffering for so long, i've been suffering so many times and I don't really have anybody to listen to me or even less understand me. I'm trying to hang on but it's so hard and even more because I feel all alone in this stupid world. I don't know about writing my feelings and problems in a forum, at least not today. I want to talk to somebody out there who is also depressed, I want to help and be helped and if anybody is interested just send me a private message, I've never been to this forum before but anyway, anybody who would like to hear me out and to be heard by me just send me a private message. thanx.I'm suffering, i've been suffering for so long, i've been suffering so many times and I don't really have anybody to listen to me or even less understand me.

All those things you describ are part of being depressed. Especially the part where you say you feel all alone. We have all felt like that.

I' was depressed w/o medication a few years' back and know exactly how you feel. It took me a year or more and a good alert doctor to realize that I was depressed. (I was acting so paranoid and very argumentative and would cry over everything)

If you'd like to talk, pm me. I'd love to chat with you. :-)

Hi Irene,  I wanted to tell you welcome to Healing Well.  You will find a lot of kind, caring people in this forum that despite what they may be going through in their lives they reach out to others.  That is an amazing thing to see and be apart of.  I hope that you come back and continue to post here.  My thoughts are with you.....
