Hi Sidney,

Welcome to the HealingWell Depression forum. I understand about how you are feeling. And if somebody doesn't suffer with depression, they don't understand what you are going through. If I were you, I would have a talk with the doc and see about counseling or medications. This could be just situational, so counseling might be all that you need. But if you are feeling numb, you should really talk to somebody. Talking here helps you to know that you are not alone.

I hope that you feel better soon.

Hugs, Karen

Hello and welcome, I find this forum helpful just to write out to people you know will read your troubles... and maybe get some good answers!
Are you spiritual at all? Cuz, I know for me, I struggled with depression for like oh....10 years, but have overcome it now for 5 years and counting (I doubt very highly I'll ever struggle with it again). And, it was cuz I asked God to help me change the way I THINK. You'll never stop feeling sad until you change the way you think.....(about circumstances, life, etc.) And sometimes you have no idea that it may be something VERY simple that's causing your depression. For me, God helped me see that I was being stiffled by imaginary thoughts that people wanted and expected me to ACT and BE a certain way. Once I realized (changed the way I thought) that I can be me (mean sometimes, say "no" to people, confront someone for treating me poorly, forget about birthdays, let people down, not wear makeup one day, not take a shower, whatever - none of us are perfect!), but once I began following my heart (with much prayer) I immediately became "free" and the results were astounding, it took faith cuz, people that are depressed think usually that bad things will result if they do "such and such" and that's not usually true.

Anyway, I don't know exactly what your going through or if you can relate in anyway....just don't give up hope, cuz there's always always always hope. I am living proof. I was very suicidal, attempted it many times...... Now, that's like "Who was that person?" It feels like a different life.

Love and hugs,
P.S. Feel free to email me personally if you want, I love helping people cuz I was helped myself!!! I've found the key to true joy is helping others. (you just need to click on my username and it'll bring you to my profile)

cool  Hey Sidney, I'm a new member and already feeling some relief from people out there in the world to take the time out to read my posts and reply with such positive info. We all go through our ups and downs. Sometimes I just want to curl up in bed and never get out. But i live with my 82 year old mother who has a huge dog and they are up every day at the crack of dawn. Meanwhile I can't take it down at night like mom at 8ish. I'm up till 1,2,3,am until i can fall asleep. Wishing I could take my brain out of my head and put it back in in the morning. We all have a reason for living. Family, friends, faith, animals, or our stomaches waking us up hungry, witch usually is my case. I don't know what your network of people are like, but keep posting on this forum it has helped me already.Looking forward every day to seeing if someone out there cares enough to contact me and wish me well. All I can say to you is from my own experiences, and from my heart. Take one day at a time, baby steps, try to make a small list of nice things to do for yourself.Like a massage or reading a good book, or a good movie. Walking helps depression also.If you have live in a climate where you could swim that was my saving grace. I swam all summer last year faithfully and it made me feel so good. So whatever it is that makes you feel good, go for it. Wishing you all good things your way, Susan
