Really need to talk to people who understand me!!! Everyone thinks im fine, why would i have reason to be depressed?? But inside im torn up and everyday is worse and worse. Lack of motivation, even at work, which could be putting job in jeperady. Broke as anything even with a job so stressed out about htat. My depression is making my relationhip hell. I just want to curl with my puppy and cry. Im tired of complaining, im losing friends i just dont know what to do anymore so im hoping to make some friends in here!

Perhaps stressing is part of the problem.... I know I can't tell you don't stress... That's not it... but how about a pre-work routine?

Example: I don't know if you do this, but what about telling yourself--verbally or just in your head (like positive affirmations + re-affirmations):

"Today will be a better day."
"Today will be a good day."
"I can do it today."

How about a promise to/for yourself?

"I will do what I can, how I can & leave the rest."
"I will do my best."
"My best will be enough."
"While I'm at work, I will focus on my tasks only."
"I can complete them, too."

For how you feel,

"This won't last forever."
"I can do something about this; I have that power."
"I can be happy."
"I can be recover myself/be me again."
"I can. I can. I can."
"There is a solution."
"I mustn't give up hope yet!"

Just some thoughts I had...

Take care!

I'm not exactly digging myself out of the hole but creating a tunnel to get out another way. Throwing dirt from one end of the pit to the other isn't going to get me anywhere. Instead, I'll create my own path.

I can really sypmpathize with how you feel.
I am also always broke even with a job, and from the outside I seemingly have it all together. People always tell me I have no reason to be depressed as well.
Maybe every now and then do something you enjoy, this sometimes helps me feel better.

Welcome to the forum Faith81. There are many caring and supportive people that you will get to meet here. We all understand the horrors of depression and I can certainly relate to your need to just curl up with the puppy and have the rest of the world go away. My dog provides much comfort to me too. Take care and I hope you will post some more so we can get to know you better.
