  2. Welcome new friend to our forum family. Sorry to read your concerns and problems. Our goal here is to not leave anyone behind in their deep depression darkness. I believe we are never helpless confronting Old Man Depression. Right now I will just comment that the deep well of hell is of course metaphorical and powerful and clever metaphors can be the way out. Please make yourself at home here and we will try to be as supportive as possible. Oscar
  3. Sorry to read about your problems. My message to our members is that we are never helpless confronting Old Man Depression. Personally I try to counteract the debilitating effects of depression with powerful and clever metaphors. Old Man Depression plays awful tricks on our psyches so my feeling is we should play some clever tricks right back. I try to keep myself metaphorically anchored outside my deep depression cave. Maybe this can help a little. Oscar
  4. Welcome new friend to our forum. I can't comment on the antidepressant but I can say we are never helpless confronting Old Man Depression. Personally I invoke metaphors to counteract the debilitating effects of depression. We are always capable of changing our thinking to find the way out of the depression "cave". My depression ain't going away any time soon so I may as well put it to use. Hope you find a supportive home here with us. Oscar

Our goal is to not leave anyone behind in their depression cave. Oscar

  12. Self harm is a counterproductive tactic to relieve pressure and stress. Personally I prefer to invoke clever and powerful metaphors to deal with mental issues. You invoked the "pit" metaphor which can be helpful. The metaphorical pit is the place to dump unwanted, unneeded, unnecessary and any and all negative thoughts. I keep a hefty supply of metaphorical bold boulders to drop into my depression pit to crush useless emotional baggage. We are never helpless confronting Old Man Depression. Maybe this can help a little. Oscar
  13. You can talk to us.
  14. Actually "Through the Looking Glass" but an excellent observation. Metaphors are impossible things because they only exist when we imagine, pretend and make believe them into existence.
  15. Thanks Mr. Floor. Always willing to offer whatever support I can. When we invoke a metaphor we are changing our thinking ever so much. The change can be positive or negative depending on how clever we are. We need to keep lighting those candles and refrain from cursing the darkness as best we can.
