Re: Cant seem to make it work

Hi Anne, Well I did read your post, all of it, right to the end. Then I read some parts for a second and even a third time, so you see someone is interested enough in what you have to say to do that and reply as well so, I hope, you can take some heart from that. The health problems you describe, th...

Re: I'm troubled with social anxiety disorder

Hello Susan, I'm sorry that you've been suffering from social anxiety to such an extent. On the plus side you sound like a sensitive person which I think is a good thing. Anyway, I'd advise you to exercise extreme caution when it comes to cannabis because one of the potential side effects is increas...

Re: Can someone please give me some advice?

Hello and welcome, I'm so sorry that you've been suffering from depression and social anxiety, have been betrayed and that your family (especially your mum) doesn't understand your condition. The good news is that you've come to a place where people really do understand and can offer support and adv...

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

Hello and welcome, First of all congratulations on posting a well expressed, mature and honest account of your life at the moment; you're clearly literate and intelligent so take heart! Olive is right; the most important thing right now is your health and the difficult task of trying to explain to t...

Re: Here looking to meet/chat-with people

Hello Diego, First of all I should say welcome to 'Depression understood'. From my own experience it's a really good place to be; it helped me a lot through some very dark days. Also, thank you for your post which seems to have touched on a real need in several people; the need for understanding by ...

Re: How i feel

Hello and welcome! First of all thank you for being brave enough to come here and share how you really feel about your life. I hope that just doing that may have helped you in some way. You've been through a lot of changes recently: marriage, a new job and a new location all of which can be stressfu...

Re: Having trouble w Image size....

https://www.pexels.com/photo/antenna-beautiful-bloom-blossom-355401/ Hi there, I've not much clue either. When I tried attaching an image file I got the same error message as you. I don't think it's the physical size that matters rather the size of the file (number of 'bits'). The image file I trie...

Re: I am depressed

Hello and welcome! You've been very courageous to come here and express how you feel so clearly and honestly. No one here will tell you that depression is trivial or that someone talking about their depressed state is just 'bitching'. It's a serious illness and very,very hard to live with. Anyway, y...

Re: no one to talk too

Hi Mago, it's john again. I hope you're feeling a little less alone and with no one to talk to or care about you now you've seen some of the great replies to your post. I don't think I can add anything to the advice you've already been given BUT I can add my support and sympathy too of course. Howev...

Re: first post

Hi Mago, I'm going to try to be sympathetic, understanding and helpful. Please be patient with me if I don't understand you or your situation properly the first time round; after all I've only read your 'first post' so what you've put in there is all I know about you and your husband. The people her...

Re: Nobody really talks about this...

Hello, I'm not in the same situation as you are, in fact quite a different one. I'm actually at the other end of life being a 59 year old male who lives in the UK. However, I thought that leaving some form of reply would at least show someone cares. Talking about feelings of depression is difficult ...

Re: Professional with depression...

Hi Mike, Yeh, we're all pretty much in the same boat here. Negative feelings, self-esteem low, motivation hard to come by, general apathy and so on ... This site proves that none of us is alone in feeling this way and the little plus is that, like you, we all try to help each other. Can I suggest yo...

Re: Professional with depression...

Hi Mike, I just saw your post and had to reply... I understand where your coming from (at least I think I do). You see at one time I was a successful professional too - or at least the world saw me that way. If people had looked from the outside they'd have said, "There's one lucky guy", b...

Re: everything is coming to an end

You've been very brave and done the right thing in seeking support. You should give yourself a pat on the back for recognising what's going on in your life (and within yourself) and doing something about it. I'm sorry about your break up - but if it can't work through the bad times then perhaps it's...
