hi

i hope yuo donet mind me posting on here. i normally post on the ibs forum. fisrt thuogh i do apliose for the raelly crap spelling. i am dsylexic so not thta great at speling.

i hvae been surering wiht depression for abuot a yaer now. i hvae a few chonic illnesses whcih raelly get me down. i canet seem to deal wiht anythnig at the mo. some days i feel so low. but there are days wehn i can funtion ok. i had a day off from wrok last week as i huirt my arm but i jsut couldnet face giong into wrok. every week i am ill. i am on so many meds at the moenmt. i aslways hvae an apointment wiht a gp or some one from the medical prefession. the troulbe is thta nothnig ever gets sorted. i am under my local mental haelth unit who hvae been very good to me. thye refered me to a pshcologist. i saw one last week but it could take up to a yaer before i get any treatmnet whcih she has put me forward for. it is so hard to get any motivation to do thnigs. i know i need to lose weigth for health reasons but finding motivation to do it is hard. i keep geting chest infections two in a few months. i had a pnewmona jab done last wek but i couldnet even hvae thta wiht out my arm swelling and geting a bad reaction. i had the flu jab today jsut hopeing thta it wonet make my arm swell. i aslo had two ops in three months. and i am due to hvae more tests. only to be told thta there is no cure for waht i got. i feel like staying in bed some days. i try raelly hard but canet pull myself together.

my mum had an op three weeks ago so looking after her at mo. her recouvery is taking a long time. i aslo lost my nan a few yaers ago and last yaer my grandad and another relative. abuot a month ago i lost my uncle to cancer. wiht in two weks of diagnoses he died. he was only young. my sister in law is expecting there fisrt child naer xmas. beucase of one of my conditons i may not be able to hvae kids. so seeing her makes me so jerous and i jsut want to tell her to shut up. shout or scream. i hate my self for feeling like thsi as it is somethnig thta i raelly happy for thme but not if yuo know waht i maen.

i am so sorry for all my moaning.

Hello Oneday

I am sorry that you are feling down but from your post it appears you have many issues that would cause you to feel down as well as a chronic illness has a tendency to go hand in hand with depression.

I do not know where you live but a year feels like a long time before you can get into any therapy.  I hope your GP is treating your depression with something. Are you on an antidepressant?

Also have you thought of setting up an exercise program as exercise is a powerful tool against depression? Get out and take some time for you.  Just a walk for 30 minutes a day or whatever you can manage.

Keep on posting and remember there is a light at the end of the tunnel.

Hi there,

Kitt has got a great idea there... one I have suggested to many people. Exercise. Doing exercise helps get the blood flowing and can increase your body's ability to process vitamin D which can help alleviate depression. Do you live in the UK? Getting treatment on the NHS is very slow since there is such a pressure on it. too many patients and not enough doctors. I am sorry that you have had to go through all this, but please keep talking to us.

I agree with my fellow posters but I will tell you that I understand no motivation and getting advice to exercise when you can barely muster up enough energy to take a shower or make your bed.  I am certainly not down playing any of the advice on my fellows but sometimes it seems so cliche to say the same thing will help you such as exercise.
 
I had an accident over 2 months ago that nearly took my life.  I have learned more than anything that positive thoughts and making yourself function is extremely difficult but necessary.  After you have mastered that burden then everything else kind of falls into place.
 
I dont exercise but I do wash my car, or crossstich and with fall here I found pumpkins to paint and carve.
 
It is not easy by any means getting motivated, trust me I know but little things that do motivate me somewhat season be for more things that are not want to do.
 
It is hard but it starts with the way you feel, positive is better.

Taking one day at a time is a great idea. Dont try to rush yourself or force yourself to do things too hard as it doesnt work very well because it is easy to fall back to where you were. Take things slowly, but always make sure you are moving forwards.

Hi Sarah,

Its nice to hear that you are getting up and about, even if you are having to force yourself. If you keep doing it, it will feel less and less like a chore and more like something to look forward to. I think you made the right choice regarding your dentist apointment as well... I would have done the same thing.

Let us know how you get on with your lump

Hi Sarah,

I know what you mean what yousay that everything is against your family... I have the same problem. Just recently, we have has 2 people diagnosed with cancer (1 isnt expected to last more than 6 months), we had to have our dog put down after she had another stroke... the list goes on. Whats important is how you deal with the problems. Congratulations on going out yesterday... it must have taken a lot to do that, but hopefully the next time will be easier.

All the best

Darren
