Hi everyone! I can relate to everyone who has responded. I have suffer with depression all my life. I am so up and down I feel like I am on a constant roller coaster. I have tried many anti-depressants and have been in and out of thearpy for a least ten years now. I have a real problem trusting people. I don,t get too close to people in fear of being hurt;been there one too many times(including my parent's and husband). My Mom was Bipolar and my Dad is a acholic. My husband also has drinking issues. Somedays I feel so isolated and all alone.about the only thing that makes me happy is shopping and spending money;but I have learned that over the years that's not the answer. I try not to use that;but it's not easy. Most of the time I don't feel like being around or talking to anyone!!!! It can be a very lonely world at times.
