Hi, am peeking in here.
I have SO much wrong with me I think I have to say no wonder I am feeling so very depressed.
It doesnt really help to know that all the autoimmune stuff and the neuro stuff bring depression as part of their illnesses, and I am also depressed about being so ill.
I have a twin sister with Parkinsons disease too.
I worry about the future, big time.
I dont quite know what will happen either me or her.
I am so profoundly depressed I dont know what to do.
I take 20mg citalopram for the depression and on loads o stuff for all the other conditions I cannot afford anymore in system.

Hi and welcome to the depression forum. I am sorry to hear that you have parkinson's disease. That must be so hard, and hard for your sister too. I pray that you are able to keep the symptoms under control.

You have come to a really good forum. The members here are so kind and compassionate. I am sure you will find this a comfortable place to come.

All I can say is to take things one day at a time and try to stay in the now at all times. Try not to worry about the future, it will be here soon enough. I know that this is easier said than done, and it takes a lot of practice. But it takes a lot of stress off. And I am sure that stress makes everything seem worse to you. It surely does me.

Keep posting and remember that we are here for you.

Luv and hugs, Karen...

Anne ,

I am so sorry to hear how hard it is for you right now, I read your post in the parkinson board just now , and my heart is with you . are you alone , or do you have supportive family and friends about you ?
Karen is right about crossing the bridges as you come to them. you are so very brave coping with all you have to deal with, lean on us when ever you need to . come and be comforted and supported.

best wishes

Let's lift you up where you belong.  Out of the depression hole and into this wonderful forum.

What are you thinking about right this moment?
How many different thoughts are running through your head?

We spend much time thinking about what was and what could have been. And we spend much time projecting into the future and wondering about what may happen.

This way of thinking is indeed a great way to make much of your life a lot more miserable and limited than necessary. The key to solving this problem is of course to live as much as you can in the only moment that you ever really live in and control. This moment right now. The moment that is all there ever was and - probably  confused - will be. My motto is to Stay in the Moment, although I sometimes call it "Be where you butt is".  :-) If I stay in this moment of talking to you I can not be worrying about yesterday or wondering what tommorow might bring.  I am where my butt a hard chair talking with you and I am content to be in this moment.

Bless you and keep talking with us.  We are here for you always.
