confused  I have had 2 major episodes of depression and am on 2 medications . Have been feeling close to tears lately . Since 2004 I have lost 3 aunts ,a cousin, my mother died after a long battle with alzheimers, and in the fall of 2005 my daughter eloped with a young man we never meant who is now in Iraq with the army and my husband changed jobs after 12 years with the same company . Just kind of blue at times and close to tears but can't really pin point it on one thing . Need someone to talk to .

Hi Maryjo,  welcome to healing well.  we are happy to have you.  please excuse my typing skills here as my main computer crashed (again) and I am (again) reduced to my notebook while it is in the shop.  it sounds as if you have been through some things in a short period of time.  and while being on medication for depression is always a good place to start or even remain it isn't always fail safe.  meaning that you do have to have people to talk to when you have things going on in your life or a support system.  healing well is a great support system and a safe place to express your feelings.  i hope that you continue to post here and i look forward to hearing more from you in the future.  take care....

Welcome to healingwell maryjo, sorry about the unfourtinate set of events which happen to you, you have come to the right place its where we all tell our stories and problems without getting judged instead we get good advice.

crying is good, it helps you to release your emotions and fears, i wish i could cry its bin a long time since i did i guess life is treating me well or the medication is working.

i hope things get better for you, and that you can move on and continue and see what life has still to offer you

 Atedogs, thanks for your reply . Have been feeling better the last few days . My doctor told me one time that recovery was one step forward and two steps back at times . He was so right , I still have times when tears just well up . At least now thanks to my meds I can funtion and live a normal life . I hope each day gets better for you .

Maryjo ~ that is funny that your doctor has that motto as I always kind of had a saying for my clients similar to that.  Sometimes you have to fall back a little to keep going forward.  With depression it is so true.  I am glad to hear that you are taking medications and that the last few days have been better for you.  Take care
