Re: New!

Hi DemonPawz, Welcome to the forums. I am new myself. I joined on Saturday, September 2017 at 8:54 PM, apparently, but haven’t been very active during this time. This forum is somewhat active. One thing for sure, however, is that it is a warm community filled with genuine love and support, so I have...

Re: My partner has depression - Look for support

Hi Socrateez, I can imagine the strain it would be putting on your marriage. But the fact that you’ve continued to give her your love and support is a testament to your devotion and love for your wife. Regina...

Re: I feel trapped

Hi Swip, I’m sorry that you are in this horrible predicament. I can relate to where you are at the moment because I have been there myself. Your pessimism is not unreasonable—you have been through a tremendous amount of stress and ordeal. For me, depression was a case of “you’re damned if you do and...

Re: Lost and alone. Suicidal. So tired of it

Hi Lobule1234, My heart breaks for you. I’m terribly sorry for what you are going through. I understand the suicide mentality and that overwhelming sense of hopelessness. It often feels like it would easier to take one’s life and end the suffering than to live and go through unbearable pain day in, ...

Re: Helping Someone I Care About

Hi Wonderwoman97, You’ve been a very loving and caring friend to him. I’m sure he knows, evident by your actions, that you really care about him and that he can always rely on you for emotional support. Romantic relationships are beautiful, but the very nature of them is intense emotions. The intens...

Re: Am I really depressed or i just made this whole things up

Hi Sushilover, I’m sorry that you are going through so much inner turmoil. I’m not qualified to give a diagnosis, but clearly you have more than merely a “bad mood and negative thinking”. People don’t just go around cutting themselves, crying everyday, overdosing on pills, and have suicidal ideation...

Re: I don't like myself and it feels like I never will

It’s interesting to read your post because it reminds me of when I used to be so hard on myself in the past with my own self-defeating internal monologue. Depression distorts our perception of the world and self. As the saying goes: “We’re our own worst enemy”. Therefore, sometimes we need to take a...

Re: People who recovered: How did you do it?

Hi Drea, Although this is a late post, I shall still write this in hope that it will help future readers. It can indeed be a grueling process to help those we love whom are experiencing hardship—especially something as debilitating as depression. I’m sure you did all you could to help your dear frie...

Re: Reasons to live

Thanks for sharing the reasons to live list, Ellie. That's a fantastic list and I found it useful. When you think about it, there are definitely more reasons to live than there are reasons to take your life. Sure, ending one's life may also end the emotional suffering, but what about the many, many ...

Re: I'm still here

Hi Grace, How are things? How is it coming along with the therapist? The therapist might be able to help you to find that bit of spark or motivation. I don’t really see ourselves as being broken or something that needs to be fixed. At the end of the day we are all a work in progress. How have you be...

Re: Depressed and Alone

Hi Life, I’m sorry that you don’t have a healthy relationship with your parents and that your home is not the sanctuary it should be. Based on what you said, it seems that your parents' love and acceptance matters most to you. Have you tried telling them how you feel? I know for some of us, it is ha...

Hi Grace :D How did it go with your physical? Sorry for the late reply. I have been also having sleep problems, with only 2-4 hour sleep daily. In the past few days, it’s been 2 hours. Whenever I sit down to do something, I keep dozing off. I actually dozed off about 10 times while writing this lol....

Hey Grace, How have been keeping? I hope things are slowly looking up for you. My friend did appreciate the card. She actually is starting to come around now and we were having a lovely conversation the other day. One of the things I do is throw on some headphones and listen to motivation videos for...
