Hi Somewhere Over the Rainbow!

Just thought I'd say hello, and welcome you to healingwell.
You're definately not alone in these thoughts, and I understand it must be so hard for you to actualy let things out. I personally have that problem, and am finding my own release in writing things down, writing letters, or discussing my worries on this here forum.

I think it's good you have a safe zone. Somewhere you feel safe enough just to let all your emotions roll out, as sometimes trying to keep them locked up inside can run you down.

I know the feeling of just wanting something that desperately, especialy just a bit of hapiness to see you through. I suggest mentioning to a councillor, if you have one, about taking extra pils when you feel like this. Sometimes an overdose of antidepressants can have the opposite effect, and make you feel even worse, rather than better.

I hope you can find what you need from this forum, and I'm sure soon enough you wil feel at home, and find it really easy to talk.

Keep well
Gem

Hello Rainbow,

Welcome to Healing Well. I have Depression and Anxiety too.  24 years  ago I had my first bout of depression and I did very well with an old trycyclic  med but in 2005 it petered out for me.  I was taking Vicodin at the time and I just had a major melt down.

I too tried many meds and finally Cymbalta seems to be holding me but I take a large dose, 120 MG per day.

I also was in therapy for 6 months and saw my therapist weekly, then every other week and now on an as needed basis.  I see my P-doc ever 2 months now.

Just saw her today and I have fought long and hard since Sept of 2005 to get to where I am today.

I have a safe place, my house, but especially my computer room. Here I can talk to people as someone is always online.

You have come to the right place, so please let us help you.

Tell us what meds your taking, and are you seeing a therapist now?

You will find many members here willing to support and advice you. We know where your coming from and what you are going through.

Please don't take more of your med than prescribed as I am sure you know that is dangerous. I know your in pain, but that is not the answer.

Many gentle hugs to you. 


Respectfully
Kitt

Hi there and welcome to HealingWell! yeah

I hope that you find all the support you need here. This is quite a big forum with lots of people with lots of different experiences and opinions. But we are all respectful of everyone else and that is a big bonus for us over some other websites I have seen. You might want to check out the resource centre for depression if you have an unanswered question.

Be cool cool

I too wanted to welcome you to the forum.
This site helped me more than words can say right now. I believe that it is one of the main reasons I am beating my depression and able to wake up and feel ok.

Hi,

I think you have a great attitude and I really hope that you will fnd the support you need as well as having an opportunity to help others. Sometimes helping someone else can assist you in your personal fights as well.

As for the blue word, dont sweat! We have all done it! (Including me! nono ) Its just unusual for HEalingwell to not filter it out automatically.

Best Wishes

Darren
