hi everyone, Display here.
i'm having a hard time. just to give you some background, i was hospitalized in May with Major Depressive Disorder. i am on Cymbalta, Effexor and Lamotrigine. I sometimes wonder if I am on enough anti-depressant, as I keep experiencing symptoms. i am diagnosed as bipolar.
10 days ago i lost my job due to a layoff. now i am trying to find a new job, which isn't easy even if you're NOT depressed.
i have been sleeping a lot.
one of my biggest problems is talking to friends and relatives about
my depression. i hate to be a constant bummer to them. i know they want to help, but it's hard to tell them what is really going on. for example, some days i don't know that i really want to live. some days i just feel like doing nothing but sleeping. it's hard to talk to anyone about
i do have a therapist/counselor that i see once a week.
don't know what else to say - would appreciate some encouragement.
I added a subject to your thread. Hugs, Karen
