Hi, Display here.

I am feeling depressed and sad today. I wish I could cry, just to let the feelings out, but that doesn't seem to be happening.

I have various things coming up that make me depressed. I know I should just take things one day at a time, and do what I can to make today a good day, but instead I am just sitting here feeling sad and depressed and don't really feel like doing anything.

I'm also wanting to sleep all the time, which is usually an indicator that I feel overwhelmed.

One thing that is causing me to be depressed is that I'm unemployed and my job search doesn't seem to be going anywhere.

Anyway, I just wanted to share these feelings with someone. I usually isolate myself and then I don't have anyone to talk to when I am feeling down.

Thanks for listening...

Hi Display,



I am so sorry that you are feeling bad and overwhelmed today. You are right in trying to take it one day at a time. Try to stay in the moment too. It takes practice, but you are on the right track. Maybe write some positive affirmations on cards or a piece of paper. That would be so helpful.

Try to do something nice for yourself today. Something relaxing. Something to make yourself feel nurtured and better. I am glad that you feel coming here helps. It certainly helps me.

Take care, may your day get better.

Hugs, Karen

Display,

I am glad that your friend helped you. It is nice to have somebody. My friend was over tonight and she was down. But she said after talking to me she felt better. It made me feel really good. I actually didn't say a whole lot. I think she just was happy to have somebody there. Somebody to listen. And a peaceful atmosphere. I am happy that I was able to give her that.

I hope that you feel even better soon. Do keep us posted.

Hugs, Karen
