hello. new to this forum. i've been active for a while on another forum that focuses on anxiety, but have had trouble finding support there lately. this seems like a friendly place, so i'm looking forward to making new connections here.

i've struggled with depression and anxiety since i was 8-years-old (i'm now 31). i've been in therapy off and on over the years and taken meds on a few occasions. not going to therapy or taking meds now, but i'm going back to my psychiatrist on friday to talk about options. i know i need therapy, too, so i'm going to take steps toward that.

anyway, have just been feel really beat down by life lately, which i logically know makes no sense -- i'm healthy, i have a job, i have a loving family, i have a roof over my head. but i can stand in the middle of a crowded room and feel completely alone. nothing feels fulfilling. i had a couple of really great years where my depression was well-controlled, and i loved living my life. i want that feeling back, but at the same time, feel like i'm lacking motivation to make that happen.

i hope to make some progress soon so that i can provide some of the great support that you all give to one another. thanks for having me here. :-)

Hi Frizzbie,

Welcome to the depression forum. I see you have already met a couple of our members. They are wonderful people. We have a good group here.

By the sounds of it, you are taking steps to feel better. I do feel that you will. It takes a little time, so be patient. One day at a time is the best that we can do. Learn to live in the moment. Focussing on the now. I feel you can do that. It will help you tremondously.

Hugs, Karen...
