Hi i have found that this group to be helpful so far. I have suffered from depression since i was in high school. Well it all started when i lost my dad in October actually tomorrow the 17th it will be  18 years that he has been gone. I know thati should be over his death but there are things that i just dont know and there have been many people that i have loss and i know that my depression is slowly coming back but hopefully with the help i get here will be veery helpful. I know that I have been on and off antidepressants  since i was teenagers but after I had loss the baby and then having almost dying many times from the lupus and I know that when i was hospitalized in 2007 for depression serious I just didnt are anymore I mean i wasnt doing anything . I know that I should talk to my dr I think that when i was in counseling it was  helping me out alot but i know that there are things that i still need to work on I have no trust with anyone i am afriad that if i get close to anyone they will leave me amd i dont want that and my marriage too that could be better well i guess i have written enough for now
thanks confused Dawn C

Welcome to HealingWell,  I am so sorry you  have trust issues.  Many member here also has trust issues and I am sure the members will share with you.

If your therapy worked before and a therapist is unable to share your conversations that may be a safe person to start to work with again.

I a very sorry for your losses.  Coming here and talking is a good thing so keep talking to us.

Hi Dawn,

I hold my emotions in a lot too, and find it difficult to speak about them, this has caused me problems in counselling - and i think it relates back to what you mentioned about trust, its hard to let your feelings out if you struggle to trust - its a viscious circle.

Hi Dawn,

I am so sorry for your losses, deeply sorry. That is so much to bear (sp). I don't know how you made it.

It doesn't matter how long we grieve, it can go on forever. So don't worry about that. Embrace the feeling and hang on to your memories. I know that it is hard to trust again. But not all counselors are the same, hopefully you will get a good one next time.

Keep talking to us. I am kind of at a loss for words right now. I feel so badly for you. But things will work out, we will help you through.

Luv and hugs, Karen
