sorry community, i am having trouble focusing on the screen and words. i apologise to you all.  i have tried to read posts but i read and my head hurts and the screen is in and out. weaning of effexor xr 300mg 4 four years has been really tough. over the week-end a family function went severely badly 4 me. i was told that it was supposed to be a happy time and that it was unacceptable to be depressed. this person kept berating me, hence i walked out.
my mum and sis were down, yet after three days my sister who lives with this idiot asked with the car running in my driveway about what happened. i was made out to be the problem. my mum and sis drove back home, my sis here informed me that they were pissed off, but they did not bother 2 check on me before leaving. i rang my mother and explained the situation, she said that her and allison were pissed at me, but i said if you give a stuff about your son that you should have said to her to drive the measly 2 minutes to see me and to see if i was okay.
sick of the black sheep syndrome, sick of the abuse, sick of being the atm 4 them and i am sick and tired of the discrimination, the hatred and just sick and tired. yeah more to this. so sorry for venting. will be out of touch a while.
remember, i value you all, appreciate you all and wish the very best 4 you. i feel i am loosing my mind. its okay, been there and done that!! small grin and small lol.
jamiee. skull skull skull mad mad mad   in the words of arnie, i'll be back. just too much-yes that word at the moment. need 2 sleep.

I think sometimes if someone is depressed it can rub off on those around us. Sometimes if I'm in a depressive phase my boyfriend will say that I bring him down somewhat too. It isn't that he doesn't understand it's just that spending time with someone who is constantly depressed can be a little frustrating, I think that is probably why a lot of depressed people tend to brush their problems under the carpet rather then dealing with issues. So maybe that is why your Mum and Sister weren't very understanding - just becasue they are worried about you and don't like to see you feeling so down.

Work on yourself for a while. Are you seeing a counselor? It would be good to discuss this with him/her.

Sometimes people just don't understand that people with depression can't be happy at the drop of a hat. We get so wrapped up in trying to understand what we are going through. But I guess they thought that you could put it on hold for a while. Easier said than done though.

Take care of yourself and please do come back. We do understand what you are going through and will always be here for you.

Best wishes for a good day.

I take effexor too and i know how hard it is to go off of.  Is there a reason that you are going off of it?  I take abilify with it and it has really helped me.

dear karen, please note i am officially in the too hard basic. have had over 100 professional referals to psych services without any reply. no use visiting either as they do not want to know about me.

thanx for your concerns. i am trying to better myself through good mates, who are a lot more understanding than my immediate, stigmatising, discriminating family.

signing off, jamie.
