I posted earlier about my son and how bad he is feeliing over his girlfriend.  He has been cryiing to me all night.  I just hurt so badly for him. And of course I feel even worse as I posted and NOBODY has bothered to help me.  I thought that is what these boards are for.  How can a person feel any better if no one wants to respond.  I feel so lost and so hopeless.Depression is obviously not something you ever get over as the minute you start to do well it hits you in the face again and often so much harder.

Aurora,
 
I had been wondering about you since we hadn't heard from you in a while.  I am sorry you are going through a rough time.  You mentioned that no one was helping you and that no one was responding to you.  If you will notice, not many people have been on board since you posted this.  I know in previous posts, you had mentioned that no one had responded to you.  You just have to give it a little time until someone comes on board and they will respond to you.
 
We are here to support you in every way that we can.  I hope you know that.  I hate to hear that your depression has gotten worse.  Do you think what is going on with your son has triggered it?  Please stay in touch with us and let us know how you are doing.
 
Take care!

Hi Aurora,

Im sorry that you think we are ignoring you... that really is not the case. I looked at the times on your first post and your post here and the gap is just over 5 and a half hours. I know it can seem like a long time to you when you have a burning issue you need to talk about but it really is not that long to wait at all. There have been times when I have had to wait nearly 24 hours for someone to respond to me. We will all do our best to help you in what ever way we can... but it might not be instant.

I am sorry that you did not get an immediate response. Sometimes this site is very busy,and us mods have a hard time keeping up. Then it is slow and it does take awhile for someone to come on and see your post.

I had to work late yesterday so did not get a chance to get on during the day.

Hi Aurora, I am so sorry that your feeling this way again.  I checked your other thread and it has 7 responses on it...that is pretty good really.  Perhaps, if you like I can post to you a number to a crisis line that you can call when you really need to talk to someone if you feel it is something that you need to have instant response too.  That is if you like?  As Darren and Shy posted we are not on here at the same time with all of us living in different time zones and different countries it makes it hard to get some posts responded to instantly.  Does that make any sense?

Let me know if you would like some crisis line numbers and I will be happy to post them for you or I can even e-mail them to you if you wish.  It is totally up to you dear.  But please do know we care about what your going through.

Thanks for your reply Elisha. If you do have any numbers I would like to try them.  I know this may seem like a small problem to some and I know my son will either get back with his girl or they might break up for good.  He seems in a better frame of mind and has actively made many plans with friends this weekend.  Last year at this time he was wanting to end it with her.  What is it with these 20 something kids?  I guess I feel so upset because I have gone thru so much in my life.  My husband left me, my father died at a young age, I raised 2 boys by myself, I took care of my elderly sick Mom for 10 years, worked for more than 25 years and survived breast cancer.  I just want a little hapiness left in how ever many years I have left.  I guess I am feeling selfish but I want time for me.

Oh no Aurora this doesnt seem at all like a small problem.  You have went through many traumatic events in your life so, it isnt too much for you to wish or want for a little piece and happiness.  I wish that for you.  Please dont feel your being selfish it sounds like you have given so much of your self to everyone else around you that perhaps "you" have just got lost along the way.
Here are the links I promised when you click on them you can save them to your favorites that way you dont have to come back to this thread to find them when you need them...okay?  I hope they help...

Thanks Elisha for all the info.  I think it will be very helpful.  I am having a very hard day. I spoke with my son yesterday and of course he thinks my advice stinks.  He says its a generational thing. That I can't understand because relationships when I was young were different.  I disagree with him but that is the way he feels.  He seems to think if he gives his girlfriend the OK do date others and if he is just Mr. Niceguy that she will come back.  I think that may be OK but I also feel he needs to tell her how much she has hurt him.  I also wonder about her because one minute she is talking about their getting married and children, the whole nine yards and all of a sudden because some guy pays attention to her she wants to date him.  I think what is going on with her is she is away from home, is lonely doesn't have too many new friends yet and is giving in to the first atention paid to her.  I am just so angry I am having trouble concentrating on anything else. I am going to call my therapist tomorrow because I really need to talk this whole thing out. Thanks again for all your help.

Your most welcome Aurora.  Actually, from someone who is in their 30's here...I think the girl is most inconsiderate of your son's feelings.  If they are dating or are in any kind of relationship then she shouldn't be the slightest bit interested in other guys.  In my opinion, your son could do much better as it seems this one's head and heart isn't in it.  Yes, he does need to tell her how much she has hurt him then after that he should move on. 

Stay strong dear :-)
