I have already said hello to all the great people here at Healing , on the Chronic Pain Forum .But also feel depressed a lot and wish to reach out here as well , thank you to all . As a result of my physical issues and resulting loss of independance , I find my self depressed more than I ever , I feel trapped and its very tough to just act normal when you feel so lost and hopless .The hoplessness  , the feeling of never being able to be independant again . to always be in pain . To always have to ask others for help .All these concepts are notautomatic , theres every chance I can be as I was  , perhaps with some pain , but its possible I can be independant for certain . But my mind , because this stretch of time has been so hard has forgotten what that is like .I feel very hopeless at these times until I can talk to a family member, or good friend and get my head right . Because of insomnia the nights are tough , but I've learned to write and blog, but when that feeling of hoplessness comes on it scares me to death , I feel so all alone .I admit its better now I've had time to adjust somewhat , sites like this are godsends to me as is my brother and sister , the few friends I'm lucky enough to have and now friends at this site . Thank you all !!

Hi Mikel Lee,

I am so glad that you have joined us. Coming here and venting can really help. Plus with the feedback that you can receive. And knowing that you are not alone in this. We all know what you are going through.

Feeling helpless is one of the worst feelings. Try to take things one day at a time and now worry about the future. The "what ifs" is what I mean. That can always bring you down. So take each day as it comes. That is the best way to go.

Are you seeing anybody for depression? It would be good to talk about it with your pcp and think about counseling or medications. And remember this is an extra hard time of the year. That could be playing a huge roll in your depression.

Keep posting and continue to let us know how you are doing. Come here to vent or just to talk. We have chat almost every night from 8:00 eastern time on. Thanks to one of our members who comes on most everynight Monday thru Friday. So if you would like to chat, you are more than welcome to join in.

I hope that you are feeling better, like I say, keep posting. We are happy to have you join us.

Hugs, Karen
