    Feeling a little anxious, but work and writing and social life (online dating) are going well. Just waiting for the other shoe to drop :) JD - hang in there bud. Take the training. I know it's tough to stay motivated and at a functional level at work! Christina - here's hoping you feel better. I know with me, sometimes there is an unidentifiable click that happens in my brain - like someone threw a toggle switch - and, suddenly, I feel better. God I wish I could throw that switch myself :) Epona - that is tough stuff. But, you are an angel for doing what you are doing to help out! Cheers B

    *hugs* *HUGS* for everyone! I'm feeling a little spaced out today. You know, like when you wake up early in the morning and you just stare at the back of your eyelids for over an hour, hoping that you can just visualize your day away. Well, I thought of some inspirational things and eventually crawled out of bed. Now my head is back in the clouds. ha ha

    Is It Possible To Be Happy Alone?

    For me it it a mixed bag right now. My social circle has changed over the years and I find myself now wanting to be alone. I am tired of pretending to be all happy, to please everyone else to worry more about them than myself. I now want to do what makes me happy and being alone is that.

    Im In Deep Sh*#

    Hi Fading light. I truly hope you get the support you need. May I ask more about the situation? Only if you are ok discussing it. What is it about the air and how old are you? Is the vernal abuse a new thing and what is your mother on about? Is your mum a hoarder? I think going to the friends house that you can have mental space to think this through a little is a great idea. Planning tends to work best when making big decisions so if you are able to hang in there whilst you do that then that is likely to be helpful. I think someone professionally trained or who works in this area may be the best type of person to advise you. Someone that first has access to all the information. The fact that you have been thinking of cps for so long says a lot about what you are going through.

    I turn 25 tomorrow. I feel like a god damn failure. I had so much opportunity to finish the course work for this class and tomorrow is the very last day and I still haven't done it. Now I won't graduate for another full year and I'll probably never get into law school now because I have too many failing grades. I hate myself.

    Tense. A really unsettled feeling hit me last night and I had three nightmares in a row. Hopefully, this feeling passes as the day goes on! I might PM someone today for an opinion on something (I know, so delightfully vague) that I feel uncomfortable posting. Brian- Thank you. I hope your anxiety subsides today! Wow is anxiety like the pest that wouldn't go away. Emme99 - My guess is that those few days without drinking were progress for you. Mistakes happen. I'm sure you have it within you to get it right in time duck, remove, and smithci - I'm sorry you are in so much pain right now. I wish that I could say more, but I just really hope that the pain passes soon for both of you. - Christina

    Happy Birthday mzungu! Lonely and Saraielle - I know what you mean about posts sometimes bringing you down, but, I have two thoughts about that: 1. I love that people can post how they actually feel on here, even if it is worst possible feeling one can have. God knows I have posted some very down things. We do not judge. We know. We understand. That you don't have to hide or act here is such a beautiful thing! 2. I find that there are ALWAYS enough uplifting, encouraging, loving messages to counterbalance the messages from folks really struggling - and that balance is what keeps me coming back. I like that we hear both perspectives - people struggling and people helping. The fact that we get the full picture makes this place seem more REAL and authentic to me that any other place on earth (or cyberspace :) ) Cheers, all. Brian

    Hello all. I have been reading the postings to this forum. I have gone for professional help, and these therapists disgust me. I got to the point where I decided to do it myself. For example, I saw the Diane Sawyer interview with Bruce Jenner. I learned that professional therapists believe that what Bruce Jenner went through was something that just happens to some people and it is not something that a transgender person decides for him or herself. Point 1: is that I believe celebrity obsession is also something that just happens to people. Unfortunately for the over 100 years that many fans become celebrity obsessed, the professionals can't get through their heads that celebrity obsession is not something a fan consciously decides to do. Bruce Jenner is not and never was any of my COs. Point 2; If you Google celebrity obsession, it seems that professionals are conviced that it is some kind of religion when you consider words like hero worship, idol, teen idol, celebrity worship syndrome. I think it should be the individual fan who decides what his or her relationship is with their CO. I knew I would never get anywhere with a cookie cutter and textbook explanation. I am still struggling with trying to put my life in order, and I find that it seems like the world is against people like us. As long as they are happy with the way our life is going, that is all that matters. One day, I sat down with myself and played therapist and client. Just like many of you have had many COs, I have had three. It should be interesting to discover how these COs are related to one another because I don't think it was a random reason that each of you have picked the CO's you have. It doesn't matter who my CO's are because the last one was a long time ago. It was an interesting journey. I will call my COs: CO 1, CO 2, and CO 3. All three of my COs were in their twenties and played teenagers on their television situation comedy shows. I was able to figure out exactly why I fell involved with CO2 and CO3. While my research took me to discovering that my attraction to these male television actors was linked to my issues as a disabled person, I did not know exactly why fell for CO1. Somehow I linked up in my mind that a 20 something young actor's struggling with his teenage television character and his public image was not very different from being a person who struggles with disabilities. I ended up shouting "I am not who you think I am. I am totally different. I am more capable than what you think I am." I guess these 20 something actors felt that way when it came to their career as actors. That does not mean that these actors would have understood me. CO 1 seemed to always have a love-hate relationship with his public image. He does not seem to trust loyal fans because they might only like him for his public persona. CO1 has managed to have a long and successful career in show business. CO2 came about maybe a month after CO1 got married. Yes I hated her guts. I think my attraction to CO2 happened when I read a biography someone had written about him. I was in mourning over CO 1 getting married and screwing up my identity. Looking back at CO2, perhaps the most successful of my three COs, I think what got to me was when he mentioned wanting to understand the minds of other people, and his cult religion was teaching him that.This obsession was brought on not only because of unresolved issues I still had with CO1, but the insensitivity of a society who had no compassion for what I was going through. This again, does not mean that CO 2 would have been able to understand what I was going through. Not a teenager anymore, I thought, maybe I won't get involved with him, but I could look into his religion and perhaps meet some nice guy who is involved in the same religion. After some research, I decided against that. CO2's old girlfriend from the Broadway stage days showed up. She had gotten a part in a new situation comedy, playing a divorced mother with two children.Yes I hated her guts when she hooked up again with CO2. It turned out they were not going steady and were still free to see other people. They broke up when she married for the first of what would be three times. When the first of her three marriages, ended she went back to CO2, and I decided to call it quits with him. I hated her guts. Joke's on her; two years later they broke up after appearing in a movie together. He ended up marrying one of his former teenage fans, 6 years after that, and I could not be happier.That's one point for us fans. Yes you can meet, fall in love, and marry your fave celebrity. The trick is to carve out a life for yourself and make sure it is in sync with his. I really thought I was through with CO's until 4 years later CO 3 showed up. What can I say? I must be a slow learner. He was on a television talk show, promoting his new film. CO 3, like CO 2, decided to begin a film career. This obsession was the clearest one I had. It was like walking into a room and picking out the furniture. "This is a chair, that's the sofa, the television, and that is the coffee table." It also felt like a scene from the movie Fantasia when Mickey Mouse wore a magic sorcer's hat and commanded the floods to come. They came and nothing he could do would make them go away. I did not ask for CO3. I went for four years without this and trying to put my life in order. There it was plain as day, my celebrity obsessions were all about my issues as a disabled woman. Once I made that connection I have been celebrity obssession free for a long long time, with the exception of writing a book about it, trying to understand it, and attempting to put my life together. I have not completely put my shattered life together, but I am trying. I think I can do a better job at helping others through celebrity obsession than a professional can.

    Finally saw a specialist about my broken fingers. Something about the tendons ripping out some bones and they'll probably never work normally again and more problems in the future and surgery that I don't know what it's going to cost. All this from my sleeping problems that are getting worse. Why do I even bother.

    Good Morning :)

    Hi friend~ Well, first of all, your daughter's so fortunate to have such an obviously loving mother on her side. A lot of times, parents don't recognize when their kids are struggling or depressed, and I know that seeking professional help early on can make a huge difference. So, good for you for being proactive about this. As far as meds, that's a tough one because what works for adults may not always be best for their kids. But have you had a chance to ask your pediatrician his/her thoughts? If they have a history with your daughter, they may be the best ones to comments on this. With that said, I don't know if this will help, but I did find an articles on teen depression at http://bit.ly/1KOHZh0, and I've heard the book, Is Your Teen Stressed or Depressed? by Dr. Archibald Hart has some good guidance in it (there's a whole section on medication and teens). So, maybe those would be worth reading through? Just a thought. In the meantime, you and your daughter will be in my prayers. Keep us posted on how she's doing. #girlluvs2garden#

Sometimes In the past I was getting as u described I was being so bombarded dailh with really traumatic stuff at work just nothing seemed to phase me anymore so sometimes I would just watch a couple horribly sad movies by myself just to kind of get it out u know?

    I took a long look at myself in the mirror. I didn't like where I was in life and I was tired of blaming everyone/everything else but never finding a solution. After a failed relationship, I swallowed my pride and realized that every issue I was having with myself in my adult life was nobody's fault except for my own. Upon realizing this, I learned to take a different approach to things. Instead of feeling sorry for myself, I took a more logical approach to problems. I would start looking for solutions and testing them out. From that point on, my dating live improved a lot and I ended up having the best relationship of my life. In short, accept yourself for who you are and realize that it's not too late to turn your life around.

    Hi Everybody!

    Hi PoeticProse, Thank you for your welcome and your message! Mental health care is very poor here, and people struggling with depression are considered weak and useless to society (but this is the same everywhere!) it is actually not my home country, where i come from, France, we have very good mental health care, free psychoanalysts and medicine :) What i have heard here from a few people is that they have not a lot of choices in terms of medication and tend to give the same to everybody with random dosages or worse lock people in asylum for "simple" depression. But to be really honest I would like to stay away from drugs (for now at least... even though i start thinking that it might help...). I am doing a lot of yoga, meditation and exercice and avoid chemicals as much as possible. I also started eating well and it helps me, slowly, but it helps. I am trying a holistic approach to tacle my depression, but sometimes i feel it's not fast enough! I am sure I will find support here, thank you!

    Hi Everybody!

    Hi Mountain Sun, and welcome to DF! I am so sorry to hear of how you are feeling - it must be very difficult and frustrating. It is unfortunate that mental health care is poor in your country; certainly a barrier to proper health. On a positive note, it seems that you are extremely intelligent and aware of the reality of depression. You also went above and beyond to find this community and seek support. Are there any treatment options at all, or are they just suboptimal? Thank you for sharing! I hope you find the support you are looking for.

    What I Am Doing To Improve Life

    Sometimes the strongest among us are the ones who smile through silent pain, cry behind closed doors, and fight battles nobody knows about. Oh I totally believe that (feeling it for self is tricky of course). And you are one of those people. Great thread. You have done a lot and continue to do a lot to help yourself. I think your determination is a great potential weapon when fighting for a better life for yourself. I think we often need to just keep honing these skills and then at a certain point things start falling into place. I find for me that I aim for increased self awareness and development and aim at getting my satisfaction there and it has helped me personally quite a lot. Congratulations on the baby and I,m glad you felt able to express your doubts about it as they absolutely normal in your situation. And well done for standing up to the boss.

    Thanks for understanding JD. Hopefully somehow, someway, we'll both get it together and make it to retirement. In the meantime I'm thankful for the meds, because I know how much worse it is without them! I'm on buproprion too and have been for about ten years now. I've taken probably 10-15 different antidep meds over the past 20 years and it is the only one that allows me to have sex and actually finish the act!! For anxiety it is klonopin. I google the new drugs in the development pipeline sometimes and there are some promising meds on the horizon. Makes me sad to think about my parents who I believe both suffered from depression, but were never diagnosed or treated. My daddy "self medicated" and my mother prayed alot. I hope they are both in a better place.

I wish I had of gotton married and had a dozen kids, but I now live alone all day long and I don't like it one damn bit!! I used to be in sales in 1995 and totally enjoyed meeting new people every day. I have several good friends but their spread out over the US. I'm coming to believe that this severe depression and isolation will never end and I just want to move on from this world. I don't know what to do at this point...

    Self Help/cbt Etc

    Hi psychocandy, I'm sorry to hear of your struggles - it must be extremely frustrating. These are quite common complaints, and it's the very fact that we know we're being irrational that makes it so infuriating. Emotion is not being regulated appropriately, so you catastrophize and overanalyze until the situation is unrecognizable as the real thing. While self-help books can be informative, they have their limitations in practice. Like you say, simple understanding does not induce change. While the premises you listed above are generally true, the point of such therapies as CBT is to help you do those things; to confront and reframe your cognitive distortions, not just to tell you to do them. It is a very present-oriented psychotherapy that can be extremely helpful. I don't know what experiences you've endured that may or may not have contributed to these tendencies, or whether you think you need further treatment for other issues, but you would not have to delve deeply into them with CBT because it is about fixing problems in the present moment. I hope this helps. I wish you the very best of luck!

    Im In Deep Sh*#

    Hi Fading light, I am so sorry to hear you are feeling so down - it sounds like a very hard situation to be in. You are right that you didn't ask for that kind of life - I'd be willing to guess that we all hope for the good life, however we choose to define that. Are there any adults that you feel comfortable speaking to about your home life and mother? It is certainly a very serious situation that requires help if your living conditions are unlivable and you don't have money to feed yourself properly. Is your mother being treated for physical or mental illness? Does she not have money to eat either? Do you think you are struggling with anything that requires a doctor's attention? I would recommend speaking to an adult first, if you have access to someone who could help. Calling CPS is a huge step, and I fear for the well-being of minors who enter foster care because it's not always easy, but that is ultimately up to you and CPS to determine. I won't pretend to know the situation you're in - you need to do what is necessary to stay healthy and safe, and if that means contacting CPS and explaining your situation, then you will not be doing anything wrong. Just make sure that you're viewing the situation clearly, and that you do not make a decision in haste. Thank you for sharing. I hope this helps, and please keep us posted!

    Walking Into A Trap.

    Hello again, I just want to point out a couple things. First, it is true that it seems you have not 'moved on' and that you're still struggling, which is OK. But this does not mean that she has moved on. You're assuming that she would deal with this situation the same way as you, when in reality, she could be dealing with it in the opposite way. Now moving on and still being romantically interested are two different things. Just keep that in mind. As for your other concerns, they are all hypothetical and/or assumptions. Her brief responses, not replying, etc. really don't need to be analyzed. Why does it matter what the reasons are? She could have not had the time to respond, was busy and had to be brief, didn't think it needed a response, or maybe she really just didn't want to. None of these answers change your situation, and you can never know for sure which is correct. It is important that you work hard to stop analyzing everything she does or doesn't do, because it is causing you unnecessary stress - even Freud said that 'sometimes a cigar is just a cigar.' Analyzing does not change the situation, and because she's dealing with things differently, may actually frustrate her. I suggest trying to find other friends and acquaintances to keep your mind elsewhere, and to realize that there are other fish in the sea. We can't look into the future and see who we are going to end up with, but we can't stress ourselves out by hanging on to every failed relationship. It prevents us from growing. I am very sorry to hear that you feel put down - I'm sure it is a very difficult feeling to have. This is a stressful time for you, but you can reduce its impact by keeping busy with healthy activities and not dwelling on assumptions of the future.

    connections matter. the intentional healthy ones are the best. i have a handful of people who understand what is going on in my life - some family and friends. i also come here and sometimes attend a support group at a local hospital to connect with others. hope you can find some people to be a part of your life.
  38. 1 point
    Anything is possible. But humans, from an evolutionary standpoint, need connections. Enjoying being alone at times, and being completely lonely are entirely different points on the spectrum, and loneliness is shown to have a negative impact on both mental and physical health. This doesn't mean you can't lead a health life otherwise, but often times the depression or other illness itself makes you want to be alone. It's counterproductive. As far as recovery and dealing with stressors in life, it is important to have support systems in place. That being said, everyone is different and has different needs.

    I've been on Wellbutrin XL (300mg/daily) a hair beyond two months now. Overall, I've been basically the same since my last post. I think in general, though, I haven't been as happy as I was then, but I have been content (i.e., happiness is a temporary feeling; content being a general sense of well being on a day-to-day basis). I do get tired in the early afternoon or in the evening, but I generally find if I push myself to do something (take a walk while at work, read a long-form news article, jog, do a task that needs doing) I wake back up. I don't mind the drug because it allows me to be me. The goal is for it to lift you out of deep depression, and it did just that. I've been on a bunch of dates and may have started a relationship with someone (still pretty early, although we like each other and have said that a lot while hanging out). I still get very sad about K sometimes when I think about her, and I know that scar will remain for a long time. Just figured I should update this for those who have recently started wellbutrin.

    Day 28 (25 at 300mg XL; 3 at 150mg) @Wannabeoktoday You are correct. You are advised to not drink with Wellbutrin, and essentially any antidepressant. In fact the bottle itself advises as much. Nonetheless, I drank a lot (i.e. a few beers when I got home from work, sometimes a bottle of alcohol) before I started, and even before K dumped me (we drank a lot together). I do not advise anyone to drink while on medication. That said, Wellbutrin lowers your seizure threshold in line with the majority of other popular antidepressants. It was initially taken off the market because of seizure reports, but once re-introduced, the maximum (and average, I imagine) dosage was reduced significantly. You are strongly advised not to take Wellbutrin period if you have a physical addiction to alcohol (i.e., you don't drink and you have physical withdrawal symptoms). The potential to have seizures is at its peak in this sort of situation. Nonetheless, I have cut back on drinking significantly, and only drink while in the company of others now. I think it's been positive to my overall mental health (which is obvious, but having had the habit of drinking a few beers for so long, it's hard to see beyond that). I also have more energy as a result, which makes going to sleep at night more difficult, but I can cope with that. I'm happy to hear that Wellbutrin helped, but I do understand the desire to not lose hair. I haven't exactly noticed that myself, but to be frank my hair has been thinning/thin for years (which, as a young man, has only helped add to my low self esteem, but I've become used to it and feel okay about it for the most part). As for K, I feel a bit better and I am able to think more objectively about what she has done. The things she says and the things she does are incongruent, and her reasoning (in our last conversation) was crazy; it's impossible to rationalize with her, and deep down I know she hates herself for this, because it has happened before. Not that that makes me feel better, but one lesson that I keep forgetting which would be helpful for anyone here is that we cannot control a lot of things in life. I certainly can't control that K does this, that she cannot see how absurd and cruel the things she has done. @solarflare Even though I started this journal, after a couple of weeks on Wellbutrin at full strength (300MG XL), I stopped thinking about the fact that I was taking it daily. I pop the pills in the morning without really thinking about it. So right now I'm on day 28 -- four full weeks. Since my last post, my mood has improved noticeably. I have tried to take small steps to improve my life (keeping detailed info on my finances, drinking less and trying, although not super successfully, to work on graduate school applications). I don't go out too often with people, but I've found it easier to socialize with others (I've definitely had social anxiety issues for a long time, which goes hand-in-hand with low self esteem) and be myself more. In fact, I'm trying online dating a bit (I did in the past before K not too successfully) and it's going all right, though I haven't met anyone yet. I have, however, started a conversation with someone who seems cool and we may actually meet up in the near future. A coworker (I work in a very large office, 1000 people, so she's not really a coworker as we don't have any sort of professional relationship) asked me out, too, and came on to me pretty aggressively. That info isn't really needed, but the point is I feel better overall. I'm not as happy as I was at the height of things between K and I (because I really saw myself marrying her in a few years, and thought she saw that, too); but it's just different now, and that's okay. I can't positively say that I'm absolutely sure that the Welbutrin is making a huge difference (i.e., I'm the type of person who would want to simultaneously see right now on Wellbutin vs. me right now not on Wellbutrin to say something like that). But from past experience, I think Wellbutrin is definitely helping improve my overall mood, my energy levels, and my ability to socialize. Taking small steps to improve my life is important, and I think Wellbutrin has helped pull me out of a deep depression, giving me more clarity in order to take these small steps. I know there will be times when I feel pretty depressed about K and my life in general in the near and far future, but that's part of life.
