  1. Welcome new friend to our forum family. Our goal is to not leave anyone behind in their depression cave. We are all here for each other as best we can. My approach to cope with depression is to metaphorically "anchor" myself outside my deep depression darkness . Keep posting your concerns and make yourself at home with us. Oscar
  2. Welcome to both of you to our forum family. Our goal is to not leave anyone behind in their depression cave. My approach to coping is to metaphorically anchor myself outside my deep, dark, dangerous depression abyss. I am a big believer in the power of clever metaphors. Keep posting and check out some other posts. We are here to help.

  4. We won't give up on you so please, please don't give up on yourself. Depression is manageable. If you're playing a losing game of hide and seek with yourself then we will help you find the way out of the deep, dark abyss. If there is a way into the darkness there must be a way out into the light. My approach is to firmly "anchor" myself outside my depression cave . Keep posting. You are precious to us. Oscar
  5. Welcome new friend to our forum family. We are here to listen and help as best we can. Depression is manageable with determined cleverness and powerful metaphors. Looking forward to your posts and insights. Oscar
  6. I have said this numerous times but I'll say it again. My depression (metaphorical) cave is always there so I metaphorically "anchor" myself outside the deep, dark, dangerous abyss. Sometimes I need to take temporary shelter near the ENTRANCE/EXIT but taking up long-term residence can't be an option for me. I know what it is like to be lost and trapped within myself and I don't want to go back to that bleak existence. Metaphors or as I like to think of them : MEDaphors requires heavy duty imagination. I believe we can find the way out of our depression caves with determined cleverness. I hope this can be some help. Oscar
  7. Welcome Brandon to our forum family. We help each other as best we can. This forum has helped me and countless others tremendously. Our goal is to not leave anyone behind in their depression cave. Keep posting your concerns and check out other posts. Looking forward to your insights. Oscar
  8. Welcome friend to our forum family. Don't worry about boring rants. We have all been through hell and can take any and all rants. You mentioned the "darkness" you are experiencing . The important thing to understand is the darkness is metaphorical. My approach is to put clever and powerful metaphors to work to strategize a way out of the depression darkness. Make yourself at home on this great forum. Our goal is to not leave anyone behind in their depression cave. Looking forward to your posts. Oscar
  9. Welcome StacyG to our forum family. I'm also dealing with cancer though probably not as bad as you. My approach is to not "battle" depression because to me depression is a natural formation / resource. I have a vast , dark depression cave within but I metaphorically anchor myself outside the deep abyss. It does take a committed effort to be clever with powerful metaphors. We are here to not leave anyone behind in their depression cave. We are glad you're lurking no more and now posting your concerns. We will try to help. Oscar
  10. You are in a metaphorical hole I'm assuming. Stop digging and start climbing. Climbing up and out of your metaphorical hole is so much easier if you let go of excess emotional baggage into that bottomless hole. We all have unlimited powerful metaphors to cleverly strategize the way out of depression. I try ever so hard to anchor myself outside of my depression cave. Food for thought? Oscar
  11. Welcome troubled friend to our forum family. Your post is insightful and relatable. We all have unique perspectives on depression. My experience tells me depression is a natural formation/resource. If we can be clever with powerful metaphors then depression becomes manageable. Keep posting and check out other posts. We will try to help as best we can. Oscar
  12. Welcome new friend to our forum family. I see depression as a natural formation/resource. To me depression is a metaphorical cave. In nature caves are formed by erosion, stress and upheaval. We are all subject to the laws of nature. My approach is to metaphorically anchor myself outside the deep, dark abyss. There will always be unanswered questions about this crazy world. The trick is to try to take charge of your psyche and be as clever as possible with powerful metaphors. We are here to not leave anyone behind in their depression cave. Please keep posting and do check out other posts for support and meaningful insights. Oscar
  13. We understand only to well your predicament. Depression will trap us within ourselves. My approach is to acknowledge the deep, dark abyss as a natural formation/resource. I know what it is like to "wallow in the hollow". I must anchor myself outside the depression cave. If I need to take temporary shelter near the ENTRANCE/EXIT of my depression cave I can do it. The idea is to be as clever as possible with powerful metaphors. Perhaps this can be food for thought. Oscar
  14. I have a different view of depression than most people. I see depression as a natural condition/formation/resource. I invoke a cave metaphor to strategize my depression experience. This approach requires serious work to anchor myself outside the deep, dark, dangerous depression cave. I refuse to go back into that bottomless abyss. I just think we can keep our backs turned away from the emptiness. Metaphorically speaking of course.
