LG: A former therapist who knew that I loved to write, frequently told me that writing what we feel takes the pain from our heart and transfers it to paper. Writing helps to get the despair, loneliness and the emotion out of us. And for me, getting rid of a major part of the emotion helps me to think more clearly and present myself better to others...thus resulting in a decrease of my depression.
I envy your for your endorphins...I need to convince myself to get my own butt out of gear. Maybe I'll try working out if you keep up your writing!
Im new here but wanted to extend my prayers and encouragement with being so down with thyroid/lupus for so many years I finally bite the bullet and gave into a antidepressant (just starting) I just cried when I read your post you sound young and me being female and middle aged I feel I can relate to you being pushed earlier in years by many in my family, I do alot of crying by myself too as my sons are grown and gone dont get me wrong I have a wonder ful caring husband but its so hard to explain sometimes even to him what its like being like a roller coaster day to day either physically or mentally. Just know Im here to help you ""hang in there"" sorry to go on and on here too but sometimes places like these they "understand"
Blessings to you Jonny!
