hello, i'm new to this kind of forum but i thought i would give it a try. Waht can i loose? I have nobody to talk to about my depression anyway. i have had depression for 8 years now and have been in treatment for 2. i am on Effexor XR 225mg daily. Yet i still seem to be getting worse all the time. My boyfriend doesn't seem to understand any of it, nor does he seem to want to. when i try to open up to him about things he shuts down like my problems meen nothing and his are all that need his attention. when he went to work in another city and was staying w/ his parents, i thought it might be a good thing for us to spend some time away. but the timing couldn't be worse. My symptons seem to be out of controll. and he knew that they were b4 he left (not that he had a choice at the time) I cant go anywhere without having a panic attack, inc. going to my own son's baseball games. (That is the worst of it all, i cant even be there for my own children.)
He promised to call or IM me every night to check up on me. the first night he didn't even bother. i was so upset and couldn't sleep at all. then every night there after all i would get were short commings from him.......i was the one calling and messiging him.
I hve come to a point where i no longer know what to do or where to turn when things get bad for me. I have tryed the chat rooms and sometimes there is someone to say hello to but is hard to talk about intimate things w/ thoes you don't know.
Any help will be greatly appreciated
