I`ts just another of those days where i `m just feeling so sad and down .Ijust wake up feeling like this and no matter what i try it doesn`t seem to get any better . I don`t go out as i have panic attacks and there for makes things worse . Hubby has been home all day and i can`t even talk to him i am finding it increasingly harder to talk to anyone .I just want to spend time by myself all the time .I get so flustered when the kids are even home . I take my meds sometimes when i remember but it`s not always the case .....restless

I'm sorry you are feeling down. How long have you been on the meds? You have to take them for them to work. I know how hard it is to talk to anyone about how you are feeling, have you talked to your husband much about how you are feeling?

Hugs restless 1. Thats no good. I hope that things get better for you soon. I definately can understand how you are feeling. You need to remember to take your meds every day. I am finding it hard to remember some days too... And I am sick of taking them also. It is hard when the people who are close to you don't actually want to understand. I have a similar problem here. Many hugs restless... keep posting in here if it helps.

Hi restless
It is very hard to talk to a loved one about depression.
And I know that it is extra hard to cope with the depression when you have kids.
I think it is time to make a call to the Dr,and then try to get your hubby to go with you.
Tell the Dr what is going on,and be honest.
I think it is good for husbands to hear it and to hear the advice that the doctors give.
In the mean time please try to remember to take your meds.

thanks shy but you see i was already seeing a dr and have been for ages but my hubby won`t come with me but he said to me he doesn`t knot what to do but he doesn`t believe in councillors either  so i just feel as though i`m doing this on my own i have no one here i can even talk to about how i`m feeling so i just keep to myself .The dr i was seeing is leaving but i don`t mind especially after him yelling at me in the surgery but i am trying to cope with a lot of stuff at the moment it`s all getting too much and i just can`t cope even with the day to day things .restless sad

It's very important to take your meds as prescribed every day at the same time. If you don't take them every day, they won't help.

It's tough when the depression is keeping you down and feeling overwhelmed, but try and do one thing extra to help yourself. Stick to a regular routine every day, including bedtime and getting up, take a shower at the same time, eat even if you don't feel like it, try and get some fresh air and a walk in. All these things help tremendously while you're waiting for the meds to kick-in.

Hang in there and let us know how you're doing!

Geebs i do try to keep occupied i look after kids and native animals but just feel that i shouldn`t be feeling the way i am at the moment not that i would ever do anything to ever harm either but my heart just isn`t in it anymore . I use to look forward to the littlies coming each day but now i actually dread the thought of even getting out of bed each day .i`m so worried as next month i have to face surgery for skin cancer i`m so worried as to how it`s going to turn out and how much of my face they are going to cut away .I don`t have family support and it makes it really hard . I have never spoken to my mother about anything eversince i left home when i was fifteen , and having to raise my kids with minimal help from hubby was indeed hard .Now he blames me for the second eldest and the problems he is having with him . it`s just such a mess i don`t want to do it anymore ...restless

Hang in there restless... I send you lots of computer hugs! You are always in my thoughts and prayers my friend. I wish there was such thing as a magic wand that takes away all the troubles and all the bad feelings people have. I know, that can never happen... but I still wish on every star that it comes true. But keep talking in here if it helps and we will support you. I hope that things look a bit brighter for you soon my friend. Super Hugs.....

Hi there restless..

Well, I think it's time for you to take control of your life..it's not gonna be easy because you are on a low just now...but hey it's a day by day thing :-)

Don't worry about your husband not understanding, coz unless you have been there and done depression you really havn't got any idea what's going on..some do try and that's fantastic..but hey this is about you this time and starting to feel good about yourself again.

So, first things first, it strikes me that your meds need to be adjusted and/or taken every day at least..I know it annoys me I have to medicate daily..but if we were diabetics, would we take insulin? Yup we would..and hey it's no different for us!

How about making the first move towards talking to your mum...it doesn't have to be about how you are feeling or anything in particular..just open the door a little and see what happens..seems like you are both missing out on each other..and she is missing out on enjoying the grandkids.

Counselling would be fantastic for you..but if not possible how about looking under resources on your righthand side of this page..look under books and hunt some down at your local library...

Day to day tasks can be simplified by writing a list of routine things starting with getting up and showered etc...tick each one off as you go and be Proud of your every success...you Can do this ok! Add a few more things to do every couple of days and see how you get on :-)

I wish you well. Take good care and keep posting.

jorda it`s not that easy talking to my mother as when i was a child i was sexually assulted numerous times and i  suffered physical abuse from both my parents when they were in drunken rages .I have though a lot lately about them not protecting us when we were kids and i even tried to talk to my mum who has been diagnosed with both bowel and breast cancer i came so close but just couldn`t do it i spent ten days with them but the whole time they just treated me as a kid and they were fighting so much it just bought back everything that i had left all those years ago i left the following day .I just couldn`t take it any more .I have spent so many days and nights in tears because i have failed again .i have been in hospital on several times in the past two years as the dr were concerned that i would halm myself,well one day i was really surprised that i even survived i just kept taking pills and falling asleep i would wake up and take some more .all i want is to go to sleep and not wake up so that all this would be over .

Hi restless,

I really do think you need a great deal of help at the moment. What you are experiencing is serious and you cannot carry on like this. You must go back to the doctor and tell him/her exactly how you are feeling at the moment. I know it is not easy but you need to take this step to be able to help yourself.
You can get better, you just need to get the right help. Please contact the doctor and be honest about how you are feeling.

Take care

I think that you should either call the doctor and say that this is an emergency or go to your local hospital and tell them how you are feeling. Either way, you need to see someone soon and get some help. I am very worried about you and really hope that you can see someone soon. You need some support and help to get you through this.

Try calling the doctor and say that its an emergency and that you really need to see someone very soon. Can the doctor come out to you maybe?

All is not lost restless...you have been through so much in your life - when these things bubble through to the surface it really is time to seek professional help...Victoria has given you great advice..you husband has seen how sick you get in the past and I am sure he will assist you in getting to the local hopsital/doctor...
From where you are in life just now..there is only one way to go and that's onwards and upwards - but to do that you must seek help immediately.
Take good care.

Sorry it`s taken me a while to get back in but finally made it . I have been so run down i`ve had the flu and a couple of other bugs .I have just been taking each day as it comes . Some days i didn`t even make it out of bed i just couldn`t face any one .Even the appointment with the cancer clinic was cancelled as they had problems so now it`s another months wait to get back in .This month will be a bad one as i am missing the little boy i usually care for he has been such a distraction for me ( stops me thinking of a lot of things ) as he keeps me so busy ,but he is away for a month .Things haven`t improved much with hubby he sitll can`t understand anything thats going on so i`ll just keep it to myself .
As for seeing the dr well i cant do it so will just keep going the best i can .....Restless
