Hi. Just posting this message is a huge step for me. I'm still in denial that I have chronic depression. I saw a therapist about 6 months ago who diagnosed me as soon as I walked in the door - which shocked, angered, and confused me. I saw him for a few months, but I began to feel worst rather than better, so I stopped. I have had good success with therapists in the past, but I'm a bit hesitant now.
I've recently landed my dream job, started dating a really nice guy, and moved to a more "happening" place.
But, the blue demons seem to have found me in my new abode.
I'm sad, lonely, and depressed. The wonderful person I'm dating wants to help, but doesn't know how. My friends and family all live quite a distance away, and I haven't found any people I can really open up to nearby, since they are all are busy with their own families and problems. Does anyone understand and/or can offer any pieces of advise, wisdom, or support?
Thanks in advance-
