I am struggling to stay ahead of depression....

Saturday, May 26, 2012

That's it. Don't really feel like scribing details in THIS forum right now. I'm pretty sure I need to talk with SOMEONE, but I don't see the productivity in writing about it in this blog. I think this blog is merely a venue for VENTING......(or maybe a cry for help?)

    Seeing someone could really help you. If you're unsure about who to see, you can look up the different types of talk therapy out there, to see what the right fit for you is. Because everyone is different, and you might be able to learn some coping skills from the right therapist. Also, they also have medication too.

    I am so sorry you are battling depression. Do you already have a doctor who is helping you with this? Sometimes meds are the best way to combat this and get you back on the path to living your life with a happier outlook. Feel free to send me a private message if it helps to 'talk' it out. Depression is not to be taken lightly.

    I have been depressed before, about eleven years ago. I'm actually NOT depressed but I seem to be experiencing similar symptoms which had ended me up being treated for a Major Depression. I don't feel suicidal and I still have a feeling of worthiness. But I'm feeling as if I'm just a couple of steps away from all of that crashing back down on me and I DON'T want that! So, I'm struggling with it. It feels like my mind and my body are breaking down,,,,,and I'm only 48 years old.

    I am delighted for your blog. It's a cry for help. Many people who need help don't ask for help until it's too late and there are even people who never ask for help.

    So since you are asking for help, CALL MEE. I'm sparkmailing u my number. You should talk with someone. Like it was said earlier, the healing process starts with talking. I was once depressed myself. Talk with one of us, or me, or SOMEBODY. NOW. It's going to be alright.

    Sorry you are going through this, I have been there as I'm sure there are a lot of us that have or are going through it. Its hard and not knowing what to do is the worst part. Talking really does help and maybe even writing about it. Mine was about my mom, she passed away in 05 and I have just now gotten where I can talk about her without crying. I had a lot of help from my husband and just recently I started talking to him. But I had to write mom a letter and I know that this works different for each person, but just to have someone to talk to helps and I started coming out of mine when I wrote that letter to my mom. Its like it started the process and then I finally talked to my husband and that finished it off. I am no longer just wishing that life will go on without me, now I look forward to seeing people and spending time with my family. And just life in general. I hope you can feel free to talk to someone and get to the root of your depression because it really can consume you in every aspect of your life. I hope this helps and to let you know there is a light at the end of the tunnel. Just remember that you are loved and there is always someone there to listen when you need it most. ~Lisa~
