O my goodness... It's taken all I've got to push myself up to go to work that last few days.. I couldn't do it tonight... I started getting pains in my chest along with the sadness that i've been feeling every night when I have to go to work.. I can't do this anymore (keep going into work like this)... I've been crying most of the night now.. not "exactley" sure why, other than all of the reasons I'm going through this depression. This is crazy.. I hate feeling like this.
Sorry for the rambling just had to get it out off my chest.. actually doing this has made me think maybe I should start writing in a journal or something

Hi Sunnee, nice to have you here. I'm sorry your feeling so down and depressed. I don't think you were rambling at all. Thats what this site is for to try and help each other when we don't feel like ourselves or just when we don't feel good, period. Personally i think you need to do more than write in a journal, although that can be helpful. But if you continue to feel sad, maybe you should seek counseling or a Dr. I wish you all the best and I hope you feel better soon! Take Care of Youself!

Hi Sunnee,

I am sorry you are having a rough time. I agree with Hope's post here. I think you should see a doctor about how you are feeling. I must admit, I have had days when I feel I just can't face work but once Ive dragged myself there, work has actually taken my mind off things, it really helped. I understand this may not be the case for everyone though.
People don't always need a reason to be depressed. Depression can overcome us and we have no idea why. I really do advise you to see a doctor about how you are feeling.
Please don't feel you are rambling, this is what this site is here for. Please post anytime.

Take care and keep in touch

I understand exactly what you are talking about. I went through almost the same sort of thing in relation to work. I was working for a great little startup company for a wonderful man. He was the CEO and there was a business owner as well. The owner had a huge ego and couldn't deal with the idea that the CEO knew more than he did so he fired the CEO. The company started to do a downhill slide in every way possible. At the time we had 2 kids starting college and I really needed a steady job. This is what was up for me. I began to have stress related symptoms, dreaded going to work, I was already struggling with the death of a close family friend and when the job thing went badly a depression hit me. I was trying to make an impossible situation work because it was at least a familiar situation. I finally realized that I had to get out. I hooked up with a career advisor and several job agencies and found a better place for me to be. It took a while for me to get a handle on the depression but I am once again med free. I know it is because I made changes that were supportive of me, my family and what we all needed.

Think about it. Do you need to make changes? Depression happens but it isn't always about what we have done or haven't done. Sometimes it is about what we need to do.

Thank you all for listening and replying.

I've made an appointment to see my Dr. again as I think I need to take some sort of sick leave (i'm not sure what all my options are). The last time I saw him he said that when I was ready I could go back and although I didn't feel ready I went back because I couldn't afford not to. I think I need time to work on getting me better. I have started one on one therapy as well as going to a group session. I think I am deffinetly in need of a career change as well (I'm tired of being yelled at on a daily basis). I've been trying to research to find out what all my options are, as far as some sort of income and career change while I'm healing.
