Hi all. I am very new to this, but it is needed. I am in a deep depression, I have anxiety about new people and places, am on medication (4 kinds), and very unhappy. I don't have anyone that I can talk to so I am trying this to see if it will help. Have been depressed for over half my life and I'm not quite 30.

Hi Ssas,
Sorry for the way that you are feeling.  I too take a lot of meds.  Four of which are for depression, plus six others at this time, but some are for blood pressure, chlosesterol, etc...  But that is a lot of pills, just filling my pillbox on Saturday nights is a challenge. lol...
I am so glad that you joined us.  You have come to a good place with a lot of  compassionate members.  I hope that you stick around.
If you want to post more of what is going on, that would be cool.  I know that this is a hard time of the year.  Very stressful.  So we all group together and try to support eachother.  Actually the hardest time is after the holidays are over.  So please stick around.  Especially if you are feeling down.  We are here for you.
Take care my friend, keep posting.
Hugs, Karen

hi sass. welcome, here for you. i too have various other problems, and yes they sometimes compound my depression. although i prioritise my conditions, thus if some things are okay, then i tend to not worry, thus i focus on the things that are compounding me. i tend to use this ethos with everything i do. hope this helps. with compassion, jamie. hang in there.
