Hi ,
 
 I posted yesyerday for the first time . I got a couple a real nice responses . If only life was that easy .
NEGATIVE thoughts consume my mind . I can't take this feeling anymore . I am my own worst enemy .
 
I did not go to work the past three days . I just could not get out of bed . Now here I am on the computer talking about how sad I am .
 
 
It's going to be another long sad & lonely day ......I just tried talking to me husband . " He shouts enough I'm tired of this " he took today off from work . He lives his life like I dont exist . He had plans lasy nite and tonite & Sat. ( without me )
 
I dont expect him to sit home with me and be miserable ......Anyway , I'm hoping this is a little PMS also I'm 47 do you even get PMS anymore  ??
Juat another day in my life ......I dont work I dont get paid . Now I really feel like a loser .......yes, yes, woe as me . THANKS cry

Have you thought about seeing a therapist? I may have already asked you that. Try not to be so hard on yourself. But you do need to be proactive about your mental health. It could be just pms. Hopefully that is the case. But there are meds that you can take for that too. You might be starting early menopause. I am in menopause right now. But I don't get moody anymore. And it has been a few months since I have had a cycle. Do you get any hot flashes or night sweats? You could make a trip to your health professional and see if there is anything that you can do to feel better. I hope that this helps you some. We don't have all the answers, just opinions from our own experiences. Take it one day at a time. Live in the moment. It really does help.

Best wishes for you to feel better.

Hugs, Karen

Thanks for the advice . I have suufered from depression my enitire life . Sine, I was a little girl . This time the depression hot hard real hard . I haven't gone to work in three days ......My cycle has changed . But, I'm not saying its pms but, it certainly cab enhance the way I feel ....I amde an app. with a therapist April 25, I have been down that road many times . Talking about all my problems makes me feel worse ......I feel like she is judging me and thinks OMG what a nutcase ......

So, therapy for me is not easy . I take 40 mg of Lexapro . I am trying to be proactive . But, the depression is winning ....thanks Donna

Hi Donna,

Maybe the new therapist will work on you moving forward instead of dwelling on your problems of present or past. I know it seems pointless to go over and over things. I feel once we acknowledge the situation, it is time to move on. I hope that is how it works for you. We have other members who have been depressed their whole lives and a lot of members that have tried every med. But coming here and supporting eachother seems to help. So I hope that you stick around and post more. Just getting things off of your chest and down where you can read it helps. Keep trying. Never give up.

Hugs, Karen

Hey Donna,

I hope this post finds you well. I've been having awful feelings/thoughts for 10 years now, so I hope that that goes even a little way towards helping you feel that you are not alone. I have been on lexapro, too; how are you finding it? I hope that the new therapist helps you go forward, like Karen said. Maybe getting out in the fresh air will help? What a cliché, I know, but I have found in the past that it actually does really help. Also walking until I sweat, and beyond. Takes the mind off the mind, as it were. As for the menopause, I'm only 25 (26 on May 9th!!) so the only experience I have of that is my mom's constant talking about it. I hope that it's OK for you.
