  5. Welcome new friend to our forum family. We all have unique perspectives on depression and you'll find meaningful insights no doubt. My experience reveals depression to be a natural formation / resource. We are all metaphorically EMPTY. The remedy to my way of thinking is to put the emptiness to use. If we can be clever with powerful metaphors then depression is manageable. Keep posting your thoughts and concerns and we will try to help as best we can. Oscar
  6. Welcome new friend to our forum family. We are here to listen and help as best we can. There is a nature to depression that reveals a way of dealing with it. I am a big believer in the power of metaphors. Old Man Depression is very busy holding you down in your deep, dark, dangerous depression cave. My approach is to metaphorically anchor myself outside this abyss. Depression plays very nasty tricks on our psyches so we really need to play the most clever tricks right back. Keep posting your concerns and check out some other posts. Despair not , we are here for you. Oscar
  7. The "cave" metaphor is helpful to me because of the many implications . I can take temporary shelter inside of my depression cave but long-term residence is not an option. Trying to figure out how a cave was formed DOESN'T change the cave. I compare this to endless therapy. Attempting to fill up a cave will only create a hole somewhere else. In nature caves are formed by erosion, stress, and upheaval. (Sound familiar?) I just don't think it's necessary to always be lost and trapped within ourselves. Hopefully this is food for thought.

  8. We are here to give hope and encouragement. I can't comment on antidepressants because I have never used them. My approach is to recognize the metaphorical nature of depression. I experience depression as a natural formation / resource. My depression is always there but I metaphorically anchor myself outside the deep, dark, dangerous, empty cave. The idea is to be clever with powerful metaphors to strategize a way out of the depression abyss. Our goal is to not leave anyone behind in their depression cave. Keep posting your concerns and we will try to help. Oscar
  9. Don't listen to Old Man Depression. Old Man Depression is only into fake news when it comes to our well being. We must CLEVER our way out of the deep, depression darkness.
  10. "Paper Moon". One of the great songs from the Great Depression.

  12. Welcome new friend to our awesome forum. You came to the right place for support. We all understand the debilitating burden of depression darkness. Our goal here is to not leave anyone behind in their depression cave. I am a big believer in the power of metaphors or as I like to call them : MEDaphors. The vast, dark , dangerous emptiness of depression can't be filled but it can be put to use with powerful , clever metaphors. Please make yourself at home with your new Depression Forum friends. We are here to help. Oscar
  13. Welcome new friend to our forum family. Our goal is to not leave anyone behind in their depression darkness. Old Man Depression plays the most insidious, dirty tricks on our psyches. The best course of action I believe is to play the most clever tricks right back. With powerful metaphors we can accomplish amazing improvement in our outlook and perspective. There is no need to be lost and trapped within ourselves. Please make yourself at home here and check out some other posts. We are here to listen and help. Oscar
  14. I do have some thoughts that might help. You mentioned the words pretend and vivid imagination. You also mentioned a deep hole to fall into. I am a big believer in using metaphors to strategize solutions to mental problems. Metaphors require pretending and imagination. Metaphors don't actually exist unless we pretend, imagine and make - believe them into existence. Personally I invoke a cave metaphor for my depression and I must "anchor" myself outside this very deep, dark dangerous abyss. If you can make your imagination a trusted friend then the sky's the limit for yourself. Anyway maybe this is food for thought. Oscar
  15. Welcome Jane to our forum family. No doubt most of us can relate to your situation. Emptiness is a natural formation within all of us. Obviously not everyone gets lost and trapped inside of themselves. Our goal here is to not leave anyone behind in their depression cave.
