At 21 I lost my father to cancer, mother confined to a wheelchair. 1 year later
I was swindled out of my father's estate by my own sister, went through 6 different lawyers.. At that time I somehow contracted Hepatitis, lost my business, lost my mind, lost my first love which we were about to get married. I someway climbed out of that deep dark hole. Now, 7 years later the reverberation lingers. I'm depressed, lost my zest for life, and I'm just idling. I don't work, and im not trying find a job. I guess I'm out of gas, or burned out, and i guess u say im depressed. I'm hanging in there, what other choice do I have?

Is it possible to recover? I don't think i will ever return back to that happy-go-lucky state
I used to be, but I'm willing to take what I can get.

I am sorry,I had to edit your post due to rule #1

Hi Reza
First of all welcome to the forum,I am very glad that you found us and I am sure you will find the support you are looking for.
I am very sorry for your losses. It seems that families are the ones that hurt you the most.
It does sound like you are in deep depression,and I think it is time for you to contact a doctor.
Then get into counseling asap. Meds can help with the symptons of depression but you have got to deal with what has triggered it.
It is possible to heal from depression. I do think that after you heal you always have to be careful later.

Please keep us posted and stay strong.

I really appreciate you're warm welcome. It's nice to be a part of this. There is a concept
from the Talmud that says the world is exactly balanced between good
and evil, and with one act of kindness you can tip the scale.
I found a depression support group in NY that I'm start on Wednesday.
I have liver issues so I opted to take SAM-e 400mg per day will increase to 800mg.
Thanks again!

Hello Reza,

I am Kitt and I have had depression for a zillion years.  I am living proof that you can get back to normal for you.  You will learn to laugh and to love again but it does not happen over night.

Our 21 years old son died in a car accident and I remember my daughter asking me "Mom, will you ever be happy again"............boy that brought me to a halt.  I had to decided and I am still alive so I chose to be happy again.

You can make it with help. This site is wonderful.  Keep posting.

HI there and welcome to HealingWell!
I think the best thing for me to say is to simply echo what Shy has already said. A doctor and a councillor are really what are called for. There is no reason why you cannot return to being the person that you remember. THe road wont be easy and there may be times when you feel like giving up. But you have to work through it and the doctors and councillors will beable to help you there along with the support that you can get from us here.
Let us know how you get on... Big Hugs
