Re: What to do?!

Hello Bunny, I like your post! I don't know why exactly; it's just so profoundly simple and to-the-point. Yes, you're depressed and that's a terrible thing, but not entirely terrible because you are in a privileged position too. Depressed people are often visionaries and many recognised visionaries ...

Re: Always an Outcast

Hi there, First of all 5' 2" is not a pathetic height, no height is be it 7' 19" or 3' nothing. Second you are one brave guy to post your story here. It takes a real man to do that! If I had a daughter I'd rather she went out with a thoughtful, self-aware, mature and sensitive chap like yo...

Re: It's not urgent, but please help

Hi there Cypress, I don't know if I can say anything that will help you or really fully understand what you're going through right now, but I can offer support and sympathy; I know what it's like to have your world fall apart about you as its happened to me more than once. The important thing is to ...

What am I doing Wrong?

I'm having trouble sending private messages. I type the message and press `submit` but then the message languishes in my `outbox`. This happened before and all of a sudden my messages were sent. But it`s been days and days now and I`ve no idea how to send them. Last time I retyped the message so the...

Re: No subject

Hello LL5870, You're worth any amount of time. We'll listen, I'll listen, to all you have to say. Sadness and depression arn't about rights they simply are and they are very real to those of us who've been down to the depths. You're not left behind because right now you're the one out in front; I'm ...

Re: I need advice please before I loose my mind

Hi there, Chicagoblues has given you some good advice and I hope things work out for you too. Your man (ex) sounds like a great guy and you obviously care deeply about him which is great but horrible, nasty depression is getting in the way. I think he made a good and brave decision to tell you about...

Re: I am a disgrace to everyone

Hello Lulu, Well that was quite a confession you posted there (here). I hope that just writing it has helped you a little in coming to a realisation that your life (and your behaviour) hasn't been the best. But take heart because the future is all before you and things can change as you clearly real...

Re: Musical meds, round 4

Hi Tracy, Thank you for your long and interesting reply to my post. For someone who's on meds and feeling a bit unfocused you're remarkably coherent. Again I think you can take heart from that. :D I only tried meds once myself but they only made me feel 'grey' and sort of mushy but really didn't do ...

Re: Musical meds, round 4

Hi Windsong, I'm sorry you're having a tough time at the moment, but my goodness are you doing well; respect for that. Really, holding down a demanding job, pretty much alone and with a physical disability too and all that while dealing with depression not to mention the 'musical meds'. Of course I'...

Re: I feel that I am going to something that I will not regret

Hello Dinky, I've read your previous posts so I know a little about you now and the background to this post. As I said before I'm not a therapist just an average bloke who has suffered from depression. However, I'll take the time to tell you what I think and the questions I'd ask you (and the ones I...

Re: do not know what to do

Hello Dinky, I'm sorry that your younger self was so shocked / traumatised by what happened all those years ago. Traumatic experiences, especially those from childhood, can have a lasting impact on a person. However, I'm sure you realise, as an adult, that there are more awful and traumatic events t...

Re: New here

Hello Dinky and welcome,

If it'd help can you say a little more about you're 'bad thoughts'? For example do they frighten you? Or maybe they make you angry and vengeful?

We're here to listen and offer suggestions / support if we can.

Take care

John.

Hi Rando and welcome, I'm sorry you've been feeling sad for so long especially as you're in your teenage years and should be enjoying life. It's good you've come here and that you've found some relief in expressing how you've been feeling; it's a positive step to take which is a good thing. I can as...

Re: Having trouble w Image size....

Hello Anne (et al)

I'm just experimenting here. I think I've attached a picture of my eldest son's car from a file that was just 45 KB rather than several MB's. OK here does - trying the post.

Testing, testing
