Hi everyone,
I have been feeling extremely out of sorts the past few months as I think that my depression has been dominating everything I do.  For the first time in a long time, I am finding that nothing in my life is making me happy.  I am not sure if I told you guys or not but there have been several changes in my treatment.  My doctor retired and I have no "formal" way or doctor to help me.  I am finding that it is so hard to fight anymore and I am wore out trying to smile everyday.
The next couple weeks are going to be extremely hard for me as I try to find options of treatment.  What makes it really hard is that I am alone in this fight, although people are in my life, noone tries to understand and they pull away.  That is nothing new, just really tired of the day to day wishing.  HOWEVER.....FAITH HAS NEVER LEFT ME AND POSSIBLY THE ONLY THING THAT GIVES ME STRENGTH TO DO ANOTHER DAY..
I dont think that I remember my depression being so powerful.  I think it might be because no one understands.
I will try to post more, I just dont even have energy to do that.

I miss your love I miss your touch, But I’m feeling you everyday

Hi Faithfully,

Karen is right....things will get better, and you can't give up hope. I rely on my faith, too, to keep me going during the really bad times, and I am glad to know that you have that in your life. I know it's so hard when others don't understand what it's like to deal with depression, but we do understand, so please keep posting. I wish you lots of love and healing.

Hi honey, long time no see! When your doctor retired didn't another doctore take his patients? I'm surprised that he would just leave you hanging in such an awful way. I've known you on this forum for quite some time and I know in my heart that you still have lots of juice left in you. You're in my thoughts and I send you all the compassion that my heart has to offer. Keep posting Teresa, hopefully we can make you feel better. You called me an angel a long time ago, sooo let me be an angel now. you know my e-mail. Very affectionately, Tina
