    I see no problem here...

    Anhedonia discord

    That was a different chat group JD - discord is a chat group platform that anyone can use to create a channel. I’d be interested in learning about this group but it looks like the link has beer omitted or removed.
  3. Good luck highanxiety, I hope it works out for you.

    How Do You Feel Right Now #9

    It is unspeakably brutal. So sorry for what you are going through...you are right that no matter the good circumstances - severe, chronic depression does not let go.
  5. Wishing you well in the New Year...

      Thank you man! Happy New Year to you to! What time do you usually sign into the chat room?

    2. Tilted


      Often around 4pm weekdays, although I'm usually the only one in there

    It doesn't have to be for everyone, but sadly for many that is how it turns out...
  7. I'd say the most important question is: do you feel comfortable talking to this person? Working with a therapist can potentially be life-changing. The range in quality of therapists is shocking. The importance of a "good fit" for you can not be overemphasized. A therapist that is not competent or not a good for you can be ineffectual at best, and potentially do more harm than good. (Speaking from personal experience here). Too many people defer to their therapist as an authority figure without recognizing that this person works for you. I would interview more than one and see what the options are - you may be surprised at the differences. Spend some time with them before making a final decision. And if you have the option (sounds like you do), I would not spare expenses when it comes to your mental health. It may seem like a lot, but saving a few bucks to go with a less expensive therapist (or one that is covered by your insurance) can end up costing you a lot more in the long run if the more affordable option is not a good fit. (Again speaking from personal experience here...)

    Every day the pile of regret and humiliation gets deeper.

    It is the same for me, although I do hate it. I don't care enough to actually be able to do something about it, but I do hate it. "Every single thing I have to force myself to do it." <-- this is me too: even "enjoyable" things must be forced.

    Hope things get better for you soon buddy.
  11. Not a millisecond of true peace in over four years, not one. Times like these when most people are celebrating just make it worse. I can take the pain, but the complete absence of any authentic joy makes life not worth living. For anyone else who is struggling, my sincere sympathies.

    mental health

    This is appalling. I'm sorry to hear it wolf... If medical "treatment' helps anyone, than I am glad for them - but I have seen far too many situations (including my own) where the medical establishment does more harm than good.
  13. ayyy, new mug shot...looking good!

    Once a screw-up, always a screw-up

    This sounds like something I would do. And then I would proceed to beat myself up about it. But I would say to all those who are mad at you, or judging you...eff them. It was an honest mistake and no harm done. You are a great dad for picking her up when you do, which I know is often. There are a lot of dad's who wouldn't even do this.
  15. Hey apf - this made me think of you:


  16. "Everything happens for a reason." How is that comforting? What is the "reason" for genocide? For mass shootings? For terminal disease?

    im in hell

    This is a total travesty. If they tried to fire you for using anti-depressants or any other medically prescribed substance, they would be breaking the law. You might still have some legal case, I would try talking to a lawyer.
  18. I'd like to be travelling back in time in order to head off this horrible emotional catastrophe. If that is not possible I'd rather just be taking a dirt nap.

    So sorry sober4life...I don't know what else to say. It would be bad enough dealing with something like this under "normal" circumstances, but when you add in mental health problems on top of everything else it is just too brutal for words.

    How Do You Feel Right Now #8

    It is upsetting to me that: by participating in any human social activity, once you reach a certain point of involvement and investment - inevitably there are drama and power struggles. Obviously this happens in politics and business, but I've observed the same in literally every type of social organization, be it volunteer groups, mental health forums, gatherings of faith, what have you. It is especially discouraging when it happens in philanthropic or altruistic settings, and individuals act by taking the position: "No, we're going to serve the needy MY way and I'm going to fight for it!"

    I can so identify with this...what a horrific experience.

    Just logging in for a minute to say eff this horrible condition that destroyed my life and family. I have to admit this made me chuckle a little bit - my fake smile is my own!
  23. Hey buddy - good chatting with you today...

    Hope things go as smoothly as possible for you tomorrow...I'll be on around 3pm my time if you are on.

    I actually remember what it feels like, but it is definitely a foreign concept now. My memories of happiness seem like they happened to a different person in a different universe. Instead of providing comfort, happy memories are now just a haunting and unwelcome reminder of loss. Sorry you are struggling LonelyHiker - you are such a supportive member on here and you don't deserve to suffer.

    I know you may struggle at your job (like a lot of people) but I also know that you are a conscientious human being with a lot of patience and integrity. I can't see them letting you go, and if they do it is their loss...
