Hi. So this is the first time i've ever posted on a forum or really talked about my problems so please bear with me.

Lately I feel like everything is spinning out of control. I feel depressed, angry and just plain tired. It started 3 years ago when my boyfriend suddenly passed away. I was left with this gaping hole and didn't know how to fix it. I talked about it a little bit but not too much. I tried to move on and eventually found a new boyfriend. (which upset me because I wondered if I moved on too fast) All was okay for a little bit until problems started to arise in the relationship. I would brush stuff off and move on. Eventually it got to be too much and we broke up. about a week later we reconciled. Ever since, it hasn't felt the same.

My sister also moved 2,000 miles away 8 months ago with my nephew and it devastated me. Ever since I feel depressed. I've gained weight, which in turn makes me more depressed. I'm exhausted all the time and very angry with life. I'm not myself anymore and its upsetting.

I just don't know what to do. I need help. :\

hi sam. i felt the same way when my lady passed. was 3 yrs and a bit b4 i seen someone else. i feel some much needed counselling will help you. i am in therapy......currently comfort eat, but i am working on it. grief is a very personal thing, and it sounds like you are grieving for those whom have moved far from you. maybe a chat with your dr. will help-ie treatments and on referal to a compassionate counsellor. sending healing hugs your way. with compassion, jamie
you have been brave in posting. keep being brave. you need to look after no 1 first.....for a bit. ok. take care of you. we care.

Hi Sam,

Welcome to the Depression forum. You have been very brave in posting as Jamie has said. I lost my first husband in 2000 to lung cancer. And I moved on kind of rapidly, but it helped me. There were still days that I would cry over him. But we have to continue with our lives. So please don't feel guilty for being happy.

Hugs, Karen
