Hey there Dear Lady,
The answer is no, this is not all there is. I know that loneliness and depression makes us wonder about what causes it and what its purpose is. The more we are led into loneliness and depression, isolation and confusion, the more we search for our life’s purpose.
I do not have the answers to why we have been given so many difficult trials and tribulations in this life but I do know that when we are in a better place than deep in the hole of depression that life is good.
Try to keep going, don't stop, don't quit and never give up. You are a wonderful and caring person. I know this as I have read many of your posts and I see how members respond to you. We all need you here and you are special. So start climbing out of that hole and reach for the light. That light is the candle we are holding so take our hand and know your safe with us. ((((((((((els))))))))))
All healing is essentially
the release from fear.
Many hugs to you and know that you are cared for and loved here. Wishing you peace, love, and joy.

Good Morning els,
How are you today? Thinking of you and saying a prayer or 2 or 3 or 4. :)
Well, here I am, Another Day.........I finally fumbled my way in. I can so relate to these folks. I can relate to wanting to go ahead and crawl into that 'black hole'. I've been far enough into it, that I attempted suicide. After that, when I get severely depressed, I use everything I can muster up, to back away from the 'hole', because I'm scared to death that if I let myself go in, I won't find my way back out. And, believe me, black oblivion is NOT a place you want to spend the rest of your physical life, and your cognitive life is in the 'hole' with you.
When I butt up against something that my mind doesn't want to handle, my first instinct is to RUN! I have no idea where I plan to run to, but I just have to RUN. I guess I feel like I can run fast enough & far enough to get away from whatever it is that I've lost control of.
The last time I had a really bad spell, I took off running. I have no idea how I got where I was when my husband found me, but I was sitting on the ground, crying hysterically, and knowing that the only way to survive this one, was to look UP. I prayed like I've never prayed before. I won't tell you that my depression went away and never returned. That would be an untruth, partially because I am also bi-polar and I have OCD, among many physical health issues. So, I take 200 mgs of Zoloft every morning, and hope that nothing rattles my box that day. LOL
