Severe Depression-reaching out

Postby philsbrain » Fri Oct 27, 2017 7:43 pm

Hello, I am philsbrain and I have had severe, treatment resistant depression for decades. I am helped by contact with other depressed people. Also, it helps me to try and help others. I am a good listener and have big ears. Compassion is my passion. I am also interested in New meds, experimental treatments, any ideas? Depression can be so hard so I hope for the well being of others, anything I can do. In the face of relentless negative thoughts, I tell myself: these are symptoms, not facts. Everything goes in cycles. Such terrible pain! But try (it's hard) to Keep up hope.

I feel your pain. I really do. I have suffered from depression and anxiety for as long as I can remember. I have tried so many medications, therapies, etc... but never feel like I am living a normal, happy life. From the outside looking in, I have a wonderful life, but my brain makes my life look bleak. I am so tired.

Hey friend,
Glad to hear from you. Have you heard the story about the mud puddle?

One of the ways I combat my depression is through writing. Do you know about WattPad or Episode?
