Re: complex problem regarding my lovely newborn daughter, and the smokers that live with us.

Hello ^.^ very much congratulations to you :) I think you need a mediator who can help you communicate better with your in-laws: there seems to be no respect from either side (you may be pleasant but you seem like you have negative opinions of them.) If there is a doctor, therapist, pastor... whatev...

Re: Dealing with anxiety!!!

Hi Amanda Actually my depression began when I was 9 years old. I wouldn’t do my homework, had a jerk teacher make things worse for me by being severe and condescending to me, and I was just withdrawn in a few ways. My parents ended up sending me to a private school that was a lot less structured and...

Re: Can someone please give me some advice?

Parents don’t usually understand what depression is, and most people don’t either. If you were physically ill and you couldn’t walk, for instance, no one would probably make you feel guilty for needing physical therapy to get you moving again. Unfortunately, many of us has been gaslighted into belie...

Re: How long will it take to recover from a depression treatment?

I wanted to say, first, that I’m very sorry to hear about how you’re struggling. Not having an appetite is somewhat of an atypical symptom, one I struggle with too, and people don’t realize how bad this is for your body. I get dizzy spells cuz I won’t eat. Exhaustion and lack of concentration seem l...

Re: I don't know what to do :(

Hello dear I am so sorry no one has seen your post yet. But I want you to know that everything can be okay again, someday, and that someday doesn’t have to be years off. The first thing I wish I knew when I had depression and anxiety hit me hard in 10th grade was that what you have is an illness. If...

Re: Tired of life

Please keep going :/ you can do it. Your situation is rough and I can’t presume to tell someone with a marriage and a family how to fix anything but you need to try and change things. Get therapy? Or start going to church, even if just for the community (I never found comfort there but idk). You are...

Re: Good Morning Sunshine

This kinda hits the nail on the head, I feel, of a very particular shade of helplessness. Maybe like the kind that’s sits in the back of your mind all day. I’m not sure if that makes sense heh but asking is something I do a lot. Just asking the world quietlynin my mind. Thank you for sharing :) your...

I’m glad you are looking to reach out because it seems like a great thing to do. I’ve only been on for about a week now, and r...

Thank you Nightingale and J :) @ Nightingale Thank you for your very kind words :) that means so much to hear. When things are at their worst and I just don’t know what the point of all the suffering is, I can accept it easier when I think how suffering can make people more empathetic and compassion...

Re: first post

Ah I re-read the end of your message: your husband is an a#%. Anyone that tells you that you need to pray away your clinical depression is dangerous and a toxic presence (not because they are religious but because they don’t respect your illness as real, unless they would tell you to pray away a bro...

Re: first post

I kind of agree with Jon, but you know, I read it that your husband is doing the thing where he is acting in extremes, and because the change he makes aren’t long lasting yet, and his behavior changed a lot quickly, he may get frustrated because he won’t see change quickly, because the problem is th...

Thanks ^.^ It’s so great how just a few sentences of text can brighten someone’s day a bit :) And oi, I hate when I start writing a song when I am in no place to be able to pick up my guitar. At least you get to listen to the song for a bit ^.€ It’d keep me entertained at work when I could listen to...

Re: im dying and no one cares

That’s so powerful :) I have always found it to be so hard to assert my needs and aspirations when they conflicted with the agendas of the people around me. That is so genuine. I think there is courage in just having the fortitude to say what is yours and what is not hers :) Thank you for sharing th...
