Hey Chasing Rainbows,
I'm so new to the depression forum and posting my original post on here was such a hard thing for me to do, I have been a member here for a considerable amount of time as I was diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis in December 2004 and it was whilst searching for information regarding my illness that brought me to HealingWell.
Unfortunately I have very little contact with my family that I don't see any point in telling them, my wife I told on Monday after my doctor told me he suspected I was suffering with depression, that was a very hard thing to do in itself, my wife is a rather strong person and her attitude is one of you should just get on with it, so truthfully I personally don't feel I have any support whatsoever from her, which I can assure you causes plenty of arguments, I too am considered by colleagues as a team player and I dare say the majority of them would consider me as not having a care in the world ha ha ha, how wrong they are
But I like it that way.
I do feel it is essential to have somewhere to turn for emotional support and that I guess is why I keep coming back to HealingWell, thankfully the support, advice and encouragement I have received from members here take a considerable amount of the stresses out of my life. Furthermore, I have made some fantastic friends too.
Have you spoken with a doctor about
how you are feeling? Of course I'm sure you already know that noone can help you if you don't ask.
Please cone back often there are so many people who will offer you advice or just be there to listen.
