I can feel the black cloud taking over my mind again.  It's like something real like something tangible.  I don't know if I can fight it again, if I can keep on fighting.  I am so tired, I am exhausted I want to go to sleep and not wake up.  Please forgive me for writing again I feel like an idiot but I don't have therapy until Friday.  Sometimes I feel so helpless like all I do is take take take I am so unable to help anyone now.

We all feel this way at times. I have felt my share. Just try to relax until you see your therapist. Maybe you need the extra rest at this time. I know that feeling of exhaustion. Like you are carrying around fifty pound cement blocks.

Get some rest and don't feel guilty about it either. Try to relax, play some music that you like. We are here for you. Keep us posted. You only have a couple of days to go.

Hang in there,

Hi Starbrite,
Are you on meds at the moment? Fighting the black cloud on your own can be very difficult and very exhausting. Perhaps you would benifit from speaking to a councillor again, just to stop the black cloud from taking over.

Beating depression is hard. I think it is one of the diseases that is most hardest to get through.

You are going to have bad days,and even once the meds fully kick in you are still going to have to fight the depression.

In my own life,when I feel the depression taking over I try to do thing that will put my mind elsewhere.

Meds and therapy can only do so much, it is mostly up to us to get better.

Again look at your environment,could that be making the depression worse? Is there a way that you can change it?

Stay strong and keep us posted.
