First here's what I am looking for. Someone who can help me sort out and refocus. I'm pulled in so many directions. Don't even have the ability to think out what I need to say. Just need help.

Hi Samisue,

Welcome to the HealingWell Depression forum. It sounds like you are confused with life right now. It is kind of hard to help when we don't know what is wrong. So pick a thing in your life that is bothering you and let us know what it is (as long as it is within forum rules). We need a starting point. Maybe if I ask you a couple of questions we can get an idea of what is up. First of all, do you have a counselor? Having a counselor or psychologist really helps us to sort things out. It is really important when we are healing to have some direction. Do you see a psychiatrist? They help with meds and some counsel, but they are pretty much where we get our presctiptions for depression. Not saying you need medication, there is a good chance that you don't.

Learn to take life one day at a time. Try to live in the moment. Maybe make a list of all that things that are bothering you or not going right in your life. But also make a list of the good things. Learn to appreciate the simple things in life. That does take us a long way. And we are more happy. Are you happy with your life? Maybe write down the reasons why you aren't happy.

Do keep posting. Let us know a little more about you and how you are doing. I hope that you start to feel better soon.

Hugs, Karen

No i'm not seeing a counselor or anyone. No insurance, no money. l have a million things i feel and want and need and can't put them in any kind of order to make any sense of them. #1-my house-the mess and disorganization and amount of "stuff" is swallowing me whole. 2#-money. not enough, and my husband has no clue about prioritizing things that are important. ..and he's home now, more later.....

Your not alone! I am new to this as well and I also feel overwhelmed with life, with family, with stuff. My wife doesn't understand and has the "snap out of it" attitude - I just can't snap out of it. I don't even know what that means really - it's not a switch. Don't know where to turn........

I've had a tough time managing the housework where I stay tired so much. If you don't feel like your able to get it all done in a days time, you might try working on one room a day. Are you hoarding stuff? When you say the amount of stuff is swallowing you whole, it sounds that way. Best thing to do in that situation, is start boxing it up and give it to a 2nd hand shop or a friend that might be able to use it. You may not be able to get it done all in one day, but work on it a little at a time, you'll get there.
With your wife telling you to snap out of it, nagorc, it is possible to build your mind up to the point that you can go from severe depression to mild depression. First thing you have to do is really have the want to, the next thing you have to do is start trying to have positive thoughts about things instead of negative one's (and yes I know that is easier said than done), but it does help. Whatever is making you feel so down, see if there is anything you can do to change it. Anything at all, then do it. Try your best to avoid stressful situations. I just jumped out of the lack of will to live to not hardly being depressed at all (no medication, no therapy). It is possible. You might ask your wife if she could be just a tad bit more understanding too.
