  1. You could go to a zoo, aquarium, or museum. I always enjoyed going to them, even if it's alone. You can take your time looking at everything you want to. Going out for breakfast alone can be enjoyable, too. If you want to stay in, you could try cooking or baking something you'd really enjoy that you've never made before.
  2. Thank you for sharing. I also tend to move up in songs as my mood changes in one sitting. I also have a bit of a soft-spot for Death Cab and Coldplay. Pssh, who cares if they seem cliché? They're the mildly saddening tone the artists were going for. Thank you for sharing also. :)
  3. I know not everyone enjoys a good song to help them cry. However, if you are someone that occasionally curls into a ball in bed with your phone and headphones, please share some songs that help you let it out. What's your go-to song or artist?
  4. You don't do it. That's what you do. You're aware that you have an obsession based on the idea of someone you're infatuated with showing affection and helping you with your insecurities. You know spending all you have for something that you know will end badly is a bad idea. I would advise against it. If it's any help, I'm sure you can imagine the potential for your situation being much worse after when it doesn't accomplish what you're dreaming about. Both financially and emotionally. I hope you're able to seek help with this problem. Don't feel hopeless.
  5. I'm sorry that you're going to be losing something you like doing so much. Change is hard for a lot of people, so don't feel bad about that. I can tell you for certain that you will find something to fill your time. It may not be right away and it might not be as good as where you were volunteering, but you will find something else. I know you will because you want to. You sound like it's something important to you that you really need. If you want it, you'll find a replacement. I hope it's something you can be happy doing. If you need to vent or talk, you can make another thread or message me. I hope you feel better soon. Everything is going to be alright.
  6. Hi Kate, and welcome! The people on these forums are very polite and caring. Some people offer some good advice, and even if someone doesn't know what to say, they still offer sympathy. The community isn't very large, so some times replies don't come very quickly, but the people that regularly post will more than likely read what you have to say and try to help. I'm sorry you've had to deal with depression, especially on your own. I hope that you can get the help you need from either these forums or a professional. If you need someone to talk to, feel free to message me. There are also lots of on-going threads that you can post in to help you vent or share what you're going through. Happy New Year!
  7. Why are you only able to see him once a week? Are you two considering a relationship? Try not to be so insecure on the days you don't see him.
  8. I'm not too sure what you want as a response, but I can give you my thoughts on your post. If you truly feel that he is the only thing stopping you from ending your life, then that is something you should NOT tell him. Things like that may seem sweet when spoken certain ways, but it can be extremely off-putting to most people. In addition to that, you should really try and find ways to be happy when he isn't around as well. I don't know your symptoms or how difficult depression is for you. Maybe he is able to make you feel so good and happy that it outweighs sadness for you, or that he makes it so you forget about negative thoughts. Keep in mind that he isn't, and won't be, the only person in your life that can make you feel happy. Try not to depend on him to sustain yourself. If you do, then you're going to be up and down often. Look at the way he makes you feel as a way of believing that there are things and people that can help you overcome negative thoughts and feelings. Let him help restore your confidence in being able to be happy.
  9. Rather than assuming there is a God or Devil influencing your life directly, you can think about it possibly just being guilt. It's clear from your post that you blame yourself for your marriage not working out, and you're being hard on yourself about that. It's not abnormal to think about past relationships and what could have been. I can't say for you, but it's possible you still aren't entirely over the way your marriage ended. In my opinion, you should not bother your ex-husband. Instead, try to slowly finish accepting that what happened can't be changed. Just accept that it is what it is, and move forward by focusing on yourself. A God isn't punishing you. Your conscience is. Thinking that you'll never be in a healthy relationship again is ridiculous. You control what relationships you choose to put yourself in. There's no need to rush anything. Just relax and take it one day at a time. You'll meet a good person in your own time.
  10. Depression hurts, but its symptoms can feel different to different people. What kind of analogy can you think of that best describes what depression feels like for you? Here is one an anonymous user posted before, just to get things going; It feels like I'm walking upstream through a current strong enough to pull me under four times over. There are others with me, but they are walking along the banks telling me to, "just get out of the water." But instead of extending a hand in help, they just move on and leave me behind. Every once in awhile I find a rock that is strong enough for me to lean on, and I can rest for a bit. But the rocks always get tired of holding me up and when they let go, I'm left drowning, thrown 50 ft back again. And nothing is harder than standing up in that current, when everything in you is telling you how much easier things would be if you just let yourself get dragged under.
  11. I'm sure you aren't as alone as you feel, but feeling alone when surrounded by others can be very hard to bear. If it's a friend you need, or if it would help, I'd gladly talk with you. You're only a year younger, so we're peers, and considering your display picture, I'm sure our hobbies aren't that different. Either way, I hope you can feel less alone. There's a lot of nice and friendly people here that can offer you condolences.
  12. You shouldn't consider yourself as not having been good enough. If a relationship doesn't work out, then it wasn't meant to. Rarely ever is everything one sided. If you feel like you're missing closure, perhaps it's possible to make contact with her about just that.
  13. I'm sorry you have to bear a bad stomach ache. Perhaps the junk food tastes good and makes you feel even a little better while eating it. That could be a subconscious motive for excessive consumption. If it's chocolate you're eating, you could unknowingly be eating it for the endorphins. As I'm sure everyone on this board knows, depression will make you do almost anything to feel just the smallest bit of relief. I hope you recover quickly and are able to limit yourself.
