I am so sorry to hear about your mum. It seems that all the nice people seem to be getting long runs of bad luck at the moment and its really sad. Have you tried a lot of depression meds? There are a lot out there and some of them dont suit particular people. Depression meds work by altering the balance of brain chemicals (usually Seretonin) called neuro-transmitters. Although IMO they are not the answer, they make people more receptive to therapy etc... which often is the answer for most people. Sometimes finding the right therapy and the right therapist can be hard but its worth sticking with it.
Good Evening Teli,
I am sorry about your Mother's diagnosis of cancer. I can feel your pain in your posts and I hope that you will continue to keep posting and not worry about boring anyone.
I would like to see you talk to your Mother as that may make you feel better to know that you are supporting her during her illness. I know this is a lot to ask when you are already so down, but perhaps focusing on her will help you realize how needed you really are.
I agree about the antidepressant medications. There are many new ones available and remember it will take sometimes as long as 6 weeks for you to get the full effect of the medication. Often adjustments in your dosage is needed, so as Darren stated if you can get control of the depression it will make you more receptive to therapy.
Never give up, life can be good, just take baby steps toward getting well.
We support you here and care about you.
